This seems kind of wildly disrespectful, doesn’t it?

It’s “progress” in their eyes.

Obama has turned this country into the Titanic.

” Hawk, 41, skated in the grand foyer and the nearby Old Executive Office Building, with the permission of White House officials.”

A 41 yr old ??
With permission from the Obamas ??
What’s the point ?
Other than to scratch the floors .
And disrespect the People’s House.
And reinforce that trashy people come in all colors.
Not just white.

No more disrespectful than Andrew Jackson riding a horse into the front foyer at one of his “parties.”

My 12 year old son is a skateboarder, and he said this was the most ridiculous thing he had ever seen. He compared it to skating in church.

This is a man with no sense of history, and no respect for something that he cannot possibly understand. And I mean not because he is black but because he is a communist!

The same disrespect as when he releases pictures of himself talking to other heads of state with his dirty shoes on the desk, or him playing footbal with aides in the Oval office.

A disrespectful and poorly raised man sullying the symbols of our freedom and independence with a passion bordering on hate.

And before anyone starts reefing on me for being a fuddy-daddy, ask yourself: Would he have allowed this clown to skateboard in his house?

From one fuddy-duddy to another, having this counterfeit in the White House is just one grievingly outrageous defilement begetting more outrageous defilement. Your post is spot on.

I’m sure as a youngster, Obummer didn’t learn American history while going to Muslin schools overseas. Maybe this is just another small example of why we don’t allow foreign born citizens to be president.
He did show his upbringing when he bowed to the Saudi king, tho. I would bet he can still show you the proper routine for saying his Muslim prayers, also.
The more I see of this man, the more I believe that he is not fit to be president.

Nothing is sacred anymore. Our once regal and respected institutions are being turned into a freak show by Obama. The destruction of America is underway.

It just astounds me that they (Obama’s) approved of it. Who pays for the upkeep on the floors of that hallway anyway?

I bet if Michelle my Belle had to get on her hands and knees and scrub them floors there wouldn’t be no skating on them....

What a wonderful lesson to teach our young folks on this fathers day weekend... trash your houses kids we take no responsibility for any of our actions its all FREEE take, take, take, screw the people that are working hard for it ... laught at them and say this is OBAMA time.....

Wonder how many folks will call and email the WH complaining about the disrespect shown here? Not that it will do any good, but we need to draw the line somewhere....

Just pretend this was the Bush WH, what headlines would they print in the NYSlimes?

This guy is good, but he’s also responsible for deluding 2.7 million kids into thinking they can “go pro” at skateboarding.

Outrageous but depending on the public feedback this may turn into another one of those.... Obama was just as outraged when he found out about it blah, blah, blah,,.....

BULL...Obama approved it.

Oh, this is bloody brilliant. And next week, we’ll have a graffiti artist come and display his edgy self-expression thing.

When will this nightmare end???????????

Somebody wake me up, please?

The headline would be.

DURING TRYING ECONOMIC TIMES BUSH DEFILES THE WHITE HOUSE AS SOLDIERS CONTINUE TO DIE IN IRAQ ON FATHERS DAY.

Well thats a rather large headline....

but PRAVDA would figure out a way to make it fit.

No need to bet or speculate. It's already documented... by the New York Times no less. Another little gem that went under-reported before November as the masses were falling into orgasmic adoration of this empty suit.

Kristof in the NYT

I quote:

"Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as one of the 'prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset'."

Click here for a photo of Hawk skateboarding down a hallway. I'm no expert on the WH layout, but it doesn't seem to be one of the fanciest areas; looks more like the basement. Anyway, decide for yourself.

His being raised in a somewhat dysfunctional situation (no long term father, identity confusion, frequent uprooting, etc ) no doubt account for his manifold ignorance of grace, gratitude and virtue in public: he never learned proper manners.

"Obama should have a professional wrestling match at the White House."

Only if The Undertaker is the feature. I'd pay big time to see The Deadman give Zero a Tombstone Piledriver.

Iran screams for freedom and The ‘Bamster is busy with more important things like Tony Hawk skateboarding down the halls of The White House.

The pressure The Bush Adminsitration put on Iran to fall from within using the dual front pincer of Afghanistan and Iraq comes to fruition only to get frittered away by this tyrnat and puerile nonsense... again.

It is now official, this administration IS Carter Part II.

Obama has turned this country into the Titanic.

He's turned the country into MTV.

Bill Clinton started it, but was too much of a puffy white dork to have real street cred.

How long before Tila Tequila entertains a "date" in the Lincoln Bedroom?

The article says "in the grand foyer and the nearby Old Executive Office Building..." I'm guessing this photo is in the Old Executive Office Building...? Guess I'd have to see a photo of the grand foyer.
