Skip to comments.Obama removing presidential portraits from White House
Posted on 05/23/2009 8:05:13 AM PDT by obamaisandrogynous
President Hussein and Mrs. Hussein are reportedly removing portraits of presidents past from the White House and replacing them with abstract art.
Remember, in Cambodia, when the Khumer Rouge took over, they declared it to be "year one," and removed all references to the past.
Abstract art rather than pictures of Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln? Yes, those oppressors, in Obama's mind, represent the stale US past

According to Gary Aldrich, Hillary put condoms on the White House Christmas tree in 1994, so I doubt the people will get very stirred up over this
yup and they are going to bail out Toys r us and rename it We be toys and shi+
Does anyone BELIEVE this? That's a better question.
He wants the W/H to resemble his pad in Chicago. He has already been throwing parties and drunken Liberal bashes in record proportions.
Besides, since he plans on being there for decades to come, he is going to make a home out of it. Those past traditions and honorable portraits of past Presidents no longer apply now that he is our Premier Dictator.
Can not be said enough!
Why replace the portraits with abstract art? Just put up mirrors. We have the TOTUS and now there will be the MOTUS.
Go to the WSJ link and read about the art stuff there. It’s true——sad, but true.
Just removing republicans.
Reportedly removing portraits of presidents past from the White House and replacing them with abstract art,everyone chech the pawn shops for portraits of presidents.
No, the WSJ article does NOT support the garbage in the post at the top of the page. Nothing about removing the portraits of prior presidents. Read the WSJ article, not just the excerpt.
Thanks, I will.
I’m on my way to a Ground breaking ceremony for an new Medal of Honor Memorial in Farmington, NM. It will be good to mingle and hear what people are saying.
Don’t be surprised if we see a “Saddam Hussein’ or ‘Castro’ result.
Free and honest elections ended last year.
The WSJ article didn’t say he removed the portraits.
Any other real sources?
There is enough real problems with Obama to be upset
about without getting upset about unproven internet rumors
Pesonally, I have thought that there should be NO presidential palace at 1600...!!!!!
Nor all the other minor gubmint palaces right down to community level.
An abandoned strip—mall with chain link fence surrounding it and those concrete barriers now so commonly seen all over— seems appropriate enough!
“The People” voted for “change!” I don’t think that many of the voters realized that by voting for “The Divine One” they were totally replacing Anglo American Society with black tribalism. Enjoy!
Its frightening, during the Clinton years, i’d hear people talk or write how they wouldnt give up their guns. I agreed, but in all honesty, i think Clinton just viewed it as a method of attacking street crime. I never felt it would lead to a second “Concord”.
There is something deeply unsettling about Obama. I think he is actually trying to end America as we knew it. He is a Socialist revolutionary every bit as much as Castro, Lenin, Hitler, or Hugo. He is nationalizing everything he sees, moving to consolidate power, and trashing everything about the true America. The path he is on ultimately leads to Dictatorship. The BEST we can hope for is a British-style totalitarian government.
Ive never seen a man so determined to end America. Ive never seen so many people on our side so determined not to lose it. We are armed, they want us to accept the revolution as a Fait Accompli.
I fear this will not end peacefully. It makes me very sad for our children. The only thing sadder is if we do nothing. Obama should listen to the Teaparties.
oops; I stand corrected
Ok, I really can’t see a “tweet” as a source.
Come on people!
I predicted it, too....Even predicted “The White House” will henceforth be called: “The President’s House”..Very PC...
the WH is not a portrait gallery ,a museum nor a public space express the Obama’s personal choices to be displayed as such and any art is not hung in such public spaces unless approved by the committee that oversees the hanging of ANY art in the WH. The oblubbo’s may choose various artists’ work to hang in their private residence and Oval Office in the WHT
I suppose we’ll soon see portraits of Lenin, Marx, Stalin, Mao, Castro and the ubiquitous Che hanging on the walls in their stead.
Maybe he will replace the Presidential Seal with one that “Office of the One Present”
I soon expect that pictures of Marx, Engles and Lenin will be prominently displayed and Kwanzaa rather than Christmas will be celebrated at the White House. Note in his recent speech Obama pointedly had his back to the original copies of the Declaration of Independence and US Constitution...the symbolism was inescapable.
It was in the WSJ yesterday with pictures of the art being hung on the wall by Michelle. It is pretty crappy stuff. At least one of the pictures removed was Dolly Madison’s portrait. Another was a beautiful landscape of I believe Yosemite. The stuff be put up it their place were “paintings” by noted “60’s” afro-centrist artists.
Yes it’s true.
“I suppose well soon see portraits of Lenin, Marx, Stalin, Mao, Castro and the ubiquitous Che hanging on the walls in their stead.”
Actually I think Obama will replace them mostly with portraits of himself.
Don’t tweet me bro!
I agree. #80
I dont know about the presidential portriats but I do know there was a thread earlier today saying that they were getting works of arts from minorities to be displayed at the WH.
How about the Wall St Journal???
He’d rather have art that more resembles aborted babies.
DRUDGE should be all over this!
Obama removing presidential portraits from White HouseHere's some of the new stuff..
No offense to Elvis, BB King & Jimi Hendrix meant, nor implied.
Especially BB King!
Turnabout’s fair play. I imagine that future Presidents will be taking down at least ONE pres_ent portrait. He was just trying to set an historic precedent; it’s his MO.
I wouldn’t those eyes watching ME if I were him doing what he’s doing, either. In his shoes, those portraits would be creepy, or at least, accusatory.
Thanks for that confirmation.
It will be very sad if he took the painting of Dolly Madison off the wall because she is the one who rescued the portriat of Washington when the Brits burned down the building.
That git has no sense of history.
Exactly! It is like they want to "erase" our American history.
Dolly Madison's formidable social skills were a huge asset during the War of 1812 when she gave innumerable parties to keep up morale. But she is credited with an even moire significant achievement. Immediately before the invading British burned the White House, Dolly saved the original draft of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, along with Stuart's portrait of George Washington.
Dolly Madison totally aside for the moment, my comment reflects only on the practice of posting "tweets" for ANY reason ... if the quality of postings on FR continues to sink that low, we're doomed.
“XCatchy...put some music to it and call it....ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...Rockin Robin!”
Nahh... it’d never sell.
2010 is the first step and it's coming a lot sooner!
