On the first anniversary of President Obama's historic inauguration, I thought it would be appropriate to review what he has accomplished in the past year. Okay, I'm not talking about his performance as leader of the free world. No war, no economy, no health care. Nope. What I wanna see is what he's done to redecorate the Oval Office. Yes! (Aside from airing out the sulfur fumes.)
The White House
Feb. 2, 2009 : White House valets had moved the sofas in the Oval Office to accommodate the large number of press photographers that were covering the President’s meeting with Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas. When the photo-op ended, the President said to Gov. Douglas, "let’s move the sofas back in place." Gov. Douglas didn’t quite know what to do as the President did the heavy lifting. The valets now cringe when they see this because it was their responsibility.
