I like the Childe Hassam painting on the left, and I don’t usually go for impressionism—American or French.

She is probably the only person who take her job seriously in that office since Jan 20, 2009.

What is the painting on the right above the Remington statuette?

I don't want to say what it looks like it could be.

He welcomes the "alleged" terrorists to our shores and makes sure that his friends know that the Christian tree is gone so they can visit him again in his office without being offended.

I think that Odumbo takes his job of destroying free enterprise and capitalism very seriously.

The rug with the seal on it appears to be getting worn out.

That giant sucking sound you hear is not that vacuum.....it's all our money spent by the Obama administration flying through space.....never to be heard of or seen by us again.

Whoosh!

Ditto!

I'd love to hear what Freud would say about it.

Someone should photoshop Obama’s head hiding behind the desk with the caption, “Please don’t tell anyone I’m here, lady!”

Laura Bush designed the new rug, when her husband was in the WH. I believe the muted colors of the seal are meant to match the colors in the rest of the rug.

I am trying to figure out whether he is the reincarnation of Caligula or Nero. Just need to do more research.

I wonder if there's a lingering odor of fried chicken.

Well, the cleaning measures that President Bush ordered helped some. His predecessor served for eight years himself, though, and the consequences still remain.

The Presidental Seal on the rug, the Eagle is facing away from the arrows? I thought when at war Eagle faces to the arrows. Obama must think we are not at war.

Looks like the lights are on and nobody’s home.

This pic kind of sums it all up, doesn’t it?

An empty, cold, detached room, with someone around to clean up after him at our expense.

“Empty, cold, and detached” pretty much describes the Oval Office’s occasional occupant as well.

Look at the desk. Evidently doesn't spend much time there. Contrast that with Reagan's desk:


Or Bush's:

This is the Obama administration's 'photo of the day' displayed on the front page of WhiteHouse.gov.

With Obama getting criticism for his 'can't be bothered attitude' while on vacation when the nation was attacked, the Obama administration sent a message by prominently displaying a photo of an empty Oval Office, save for a cleaning woman. I thought FR could help Obama get his message out to the American people.
