Omg, can you believe the nerve of this guy? Putting his dirty feet--the very ones he uses to walk on the ground--upon the sacred 'Resolute' desk given to us as a gift by dear Queen Victoria back when his people were still slaves, and civilized people occupied the Oval Office.
And this is the thanks she gets? A shiny black sole right in the kisser!? For shame!
Well, thank heavens this sort of elitist behavior will not go unnoticed by the throngs of right-wing cranks, teabaggers, and white power enthusiasts scouring desperately for something, anything, to prove this chocolate-skinned demonchild from Kenya has no place in the pure White House of blessed, God-fearing America.
So, in light of the unfortunate fact that it is no longer acceptable to say the "N-word" on the teevee or radio (Fox News included), the wingnuts on the right were forced to do the next best thing and send a furious email about NObama's latest affront to decency, honor, and the light-skinned integrity of the presidency.
Subject: Keep your feet OFF the furniture!
Does this photo of President Obama in the Oval Office convey anything to you about his attitude?
Would you speak with the Chief of Staff, your Chief Economics Adviser, and your Senior Adviser with your feet up on the Resolute Desk – a gift from Queen Victoria to President Rutherford B. Hayes in 1880?
We should inundate the White House with emails demanding he keep his feet off of our furniture.
This arrogant, immature & self-centered man has no sense of honor, or of simple decency.
While this posture is disrespectful in any culture, it is absolutely never done in any executive setting.
Further, in over half of the cultures of the world, it is recognized not only as disrespectful, but as an extreme insult.
He thinks of himself as a king — and not as a servant of the people, humbly occupying our White House for his term in office.
Electing him was an enormous mistake — and will cost us in many ways, for generations.
Conservatives haven't been this outraged since that incorrigible Rosa Parks lady refused to give up her seat and move to the back of the bus like a decent elderly woman. Once again, hundreds of years of tradition, reverence and honor destroyed in one fell genuine leather thud.
Oh and don't give me the whole "George Bush did the same exact thing when he was in office" bullsh*t. Cause it is completely different!
At least George W. Bush had the common decency to be white when kicking back and spitting on British royalty's good-faith gift to their former colonial possession.
