2nd Oval Office Readied in White House Rehab Project

This summer there will be two Oval Offices in the White House complex, and it won’t be a case of double vision.

In preparation for a major, two-year renovation of the West Wing, the government is undertaking extensive work to complete a new executive office for President Obama at the south end of the adjacent Eisenhower Executive Office Building, RCP has learned.

The president’s facsimile Oval Office, created as a nearly identical replica of the most famous ovoid room in the world, is slated to be ready for occupancy by August if Obama is ready to move and if design challenges are resolved. The build-out of the new “West Wing quarters” inside the Eisenhower building has begun, but unforeseen construction hurdles may alter plans for the eventual placement of the new office inside the EEOB, according to several knowledgeable sources.

The timing of Obama’s move to a substitute executive suite is in part dependent on the president’s readiness to begin working in the temporary quarters for what could be as long as two years, sources told RCP. The West Wing phase of a larger, $376 million project begun in September 2010 was put on pause through last year’s election, although funding and contracts were ready, the sources said. If Mitt Romney had won in November, Obama would have handed decisions about whether and how to proceed with the rehab project to his successor, they added.

The West Wing renovation is the latest phase of a significant project that resulted last year in the completion of a secret bunker-like facility deep underneath the White House driveway.

Okay then!

250 years we go from honest republic to decadent empire. No expense is spared for the whims of the rulers. Sorry I had to live to see it.

It’s secret because they put up a wooden fens around the construction site. And the press was instructed not to notice the stream of dump trucks leaving the site.

What a waste since the only time he goes in there is to watch reruns of “Homeland.” They’ll probably install a big flat-screen HD tv for him.

It’s time to start quizzing the Secret Service and determine where their loyalties lie.

The last word I got is that only 10% of the Secret Service, which represents the non-honkey element of the SS, would take a bullet for Buckwheat. Our Secret Service people are more interested in collecting a paycheck and a fat retirement check than taking one for the glory of the Marxist rat obuma.

May we live in interesting times, and we are.

So, the Hitler/Obama bunkers are being built!

Why did they not just put him, where they had Truman that one time, when renovating the White house back then??

I mean, no one would dare bother a President at the Blair House, would they????
