    Psyche. It looks like the Oval Office! But of course, it’s the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas. This is where a group of veterans were getting a tour on Veterans Day this morning when, much to their surprise, President Bush 43 himself popped and personally greeted the surprised and very pleased group. I really don’t need to say a lot about this, but I just want to remind you: For all the prattling from the left and their media mouthpieces about how Bush cavalierly put our fighting men and women in harm’s way, the truth is that the...

    An email from Monica Lewinsky was omitted from the Clinton librarys latest document dump for privacy reasons. Every two weeks this spring, the National Archives has been releasing documents from Clintons presidency through The William J Clinton Presidential Library & Museum in Little Rock, Ark. Included in a list of withdrawn/redacted documents, midway through a batch of documents concerning Gen. Wesley Clark, is an email from Monica Lewinskys Pentagon email address. Vaguely referenced as concerning a medical record, the omitted email is listed as four pages long.

Obama spoke to the pair in the Oval Office to recognize the 50th anniversary of Kings March on Washington. What do you think hed say about Obamacare? asked Joyner, when discussing Kings legacy. Oh hed like that, Obama asserted. Well, because he understood that health care, health security is not a privilege, its something in a county as wealthy as ours, everybody should have access to.

    A top Republican lawmaker blasted President Obama after he held an Oval Office meeting this week with illegal immigrants, despite having ignored recent requests for a sit-down from the union representing immigration officers. The fact that the president and the vice president are hosting illegal immigrants in the White House while constricting citizen tours and refusing to meet with immigration officers says it all, Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., said in a statement to Friday. The White House will not even grant ICE officers a low-level White House meeting but invites illegal immigrants into the Oval Office.

While the White House continues to peddle the story of a driverless train wreck, taxpayers are being treated to a demonstration of the dangers of an unwieldy and unaccountable administrative state. Look, Ma, no hands! In his press events, Mr. Obama has said that while he learned about the Cincinnati rogues on the news, he plans to "hold accountable those who have taken these outrageous actions." But the...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu lectured President Barack Obama in his own office, warning him not to chase "illusions" of Middle East peace and opening a deep rift in US-Israel ties. In a dramatic Oval Office appearance on Friday, after 90 minutes of talks, Prime Minister Netanyahu emphatically vowed Israel would never return to its 1967 borders and laid down a set of non-negotiable conditions for peace talks. The exchange, which left hopes for Obama's peace drive more remote than ever, came a day after the US president called on Israel to accept a return to territorial lines...

    US President Barack Obama ran into some unexpected trouble after returning a few hours early from a five-day trip to Latin America when he found himself momentarily locked out of the Oval Office. The incident, caught on video, is already making its rounds on the internet. Shortly after he stepped off Marine One on Wednesday, Mr Obama was walking outside the White House toward a set of French doors leading to his office. But when he tried to open them, he discovered they were locked tight. Staff at the White House were apparently not informed that the president was coming...

    A mistake has been made in the Oval Office makeover that goes beyond the beige. President Obama's new presidential rug seemed beyond reproach, with quotations from Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. woven along its curved edge. "The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice." According media reports, this quote keeping Obama company on his wheat-colored carpet is from King. Except it's not a King quote. The words belong to a long-gone Bostonian champion of social progress. His roots in the republic ran so deep...

No "whistle while you work," in other words.

    The Oval Office has gotten a makeover. When President Obama addresses the nation on Iraq on Tuesday night, he will do so from newly redecorated digs. The look, which includes new and reupholstered furniture and new paint and wallpaper, is more modern and tends toward neutral hues of brown and taupe, rather than the gold and yellow tones favored by his predecessor, George W. Bush. Gone is the sunburst rug that Mr. Bush loved so much; designed by his wife, Laura, he used to say it evoked a spirit of optimism. In its place is a more muted, mostly wheat...

    Around six months in, President Obama's supporters came to terms with the fact that he couldn't walk on water. Today, he's struggling to keep the crude oil off his nicely pressed suit. Given that challenge, Obama succeeded in his Oval Office speech last night, the first of his presidency. This was the President in his element: Framing a problem, rejecting partisan extremes, pushing forward with a clear vision and what sounded like common-sense solutions. He was focused, even a little feisty - and for the first time in weeks, didn't seem to be on the defensive. His update on the...

Despite the intense scrutiny a president gets just after the inauguration, Obama managed to take all these actions with nary a mention from the White House press corps.
