It's the same Oval Office. The same desk. Even the same curtains. But President Obama has already made one major change: Go through eight years of White House photos, and you won't find one of former President Bush in the Oval Office without his jacket on.

Next thing he will be like the last Dem President and fielding questions on the color of his drawers.

A Classless act we now have.

It’s unconscionable to think that people should not have to work with their jacket on...shocking really.

Far right - White Guy and Black Guy - Whispering

White Guy: Is He Having A Problem?
Black Guy: Don't Know. I Saw Him Do It In Front Of Soros.
White Guy: How High Did He Rise Up?
Black Guy: Bumped His Head On The Ceiling!

Liberals never respected the White House, whether they were in it or not.

Masturbating into the Oval Office sink and Pizza Parties in the Lincoln Bedroom are probably back in style as well.

As well as dildo ornaments on the White House Christmas tree.

While I do not disagree with the sentiment you express, i’d hardly call that a Major Bush Rule.

I, for one, can’t wait until he rolls out “Wacky Tie Wednesday” or a casual Friday where he shows up in jeans or Bermuda shorts and sandals.

Whatever else can be said of Bush’s RINO tendencies, he did bring back class and dignity to the White House after the Clinton years.

I’ve noticed that the jacket and tie is becoming less common, at least away from the big cities. While I understand the issue of respect for the Oval Office, personally I don’t care if he doesn’t wear a suit jacket.

I’m far more concerned with what he does in the Oval Office. Things like raising taxes, closing Gitmo, legalizing abortion on demand, nationalizing health care, just to name a few things.

Oh for Heaven's sake! Carping about Obama's wearing or not wearing a jacket in his office is just silly. Let's at least try to avoid ODS.

No one came into the Reagan Oval Office without a jacket on.

There's a lot about this guy not to like, but get a grip, people. With a jacket? Without a jacket?

Find something worth getting your nose out of joint over.

This is, purely, a ‘political thing’. The ‘messiah’ is trying to tell his worshipers that “We got some work to do ‘round here”. Hence the ‘caszh’ attire (which is tacky as hell). Guess he was sending the same message with that $100,000 cap on White House staff. It’s all ‘smoke and mirrors’ and ALL ABOUT appearance, folks.

Was’t that the ugliest dress ever! UGH! I guess we are going to be treated to 4 yers of what looks like thrift shop rejects called fashion? Someone really needs to dress her in solid colors with the shape she has.

I agree, it would be proper to do so, but a “Major Bush Rule”? You could infer from the title this would have a national impact, one of Bush’s major “rules”, not that he really gets to make any.

Why? If he gets any skinnier his body won’t be able to hold up his head. My forearms are much bigger than his biceps.
