“Maybe they converted the area into a mosque for Ramadan”

My thoughts too.

I wonder if the renos were approved in November/December 2008....just for the new occupant.

Renovation to include minaret, ceremonial foot bath, and prayer room? How about an “eternal flame” burning cross as a permanent homage to Senator Robert Byrd? Would that offend anyone?

I google to see what is up.
Used the search word tarp White House and the result came up FR maggief...lol

Been there.

So used renovation instead and interesting March 09 Obamas said they would NOT use tax payers money to renovate White House and then other articles May 2010 saying Obamas are renovating White House but will stay there.

How many errors there hmmmm.
1. No we won’t
2. Yes we can
3. We will stay and endure the dust, sigh.
4. We’re outta here, endless vacations.

I’m rather amazed the images were posted.

Hopefully they don’t do what some have accused Rick Perry of Texas of doing - Some say he burnt the governors mansion to the ground so he could move out and live in a more modern mansion in West Austin.

Congress approved funding for the project in 2008 after some of the systems in the White House were deemed to be approaching the end of their “reliable productivity.”

That would have been Bush!

Oh for Heaven’s Sake!
Check out more BS out of Obamas mouth about Malia leaving for camp...
Malia leaving for camp is going to make it DIFFICULT for the FAMILY to go on any type of VACATION.

It’s always good to spend 376 million “renovating” the White House during a depression. “Let them eat cake.”

WOW
$376 million

They built the new football stadium in Indy (which is a palace, though not equal to the Jerry Jones Dallas Palace) for about 700 million.

Reminds me of the movie “Sailor of the King”. The Nazis put up a canvas tarp over the area of the cruiser they’re repairing to shield themselves from the Canadian marksman.

From $170M to $356M???

OUR TURN : Is White House a money pit?
San Antonio Express-News (TX) - Monday, March 17, 2008
That stately mansion on Pennsylvania Avenue comes with the job, but the new president should be forewarned: The place is a fixer-upper.

The house has sidewalk appeal, as real estate agents say, but it needs a lot of work — more than $170 million worth of work, according to U.S. News & World Report.

is there any kind of muslim holiday today or tomorrow that they wouldn’t want people to see the activities?

Ramadan 2010 started on Wednesday, the 11th of August and will continue for 30 days until Thursday, the 9th of September.

And they had the big Dinner at the WH Fri night with mooseslimes from around the globe to celebrate Islam - same as last year. Annual event for Islam at the WH - it's only separation of church and state if it's CHRISTIAN church.

Last Christmas, they skipped off to Hawaii = no need to celebrate Christmas.

Anyone today who can say he's not a mooseslime is either deliberately lying or ignorant beyond redemption/

I don’t know when the renos were approved. I do know the Home of the Commandant of the Marine Corps at 8th and I streets in DC which is said to be the oldest building still occupied in DC is going to start having renos this fall so I suppose this has been in the works for some time and the reasons for the work are the aged pipes etc not unlike the WH renos.Maybe this will curtail some of the massive Wed parties these fools host.

Obama is providing his best friend Moammar Kadafi a place to live at the White House and also bringing other Muslim friends and family over for a family reunion.
