Seven vacations this summer.
Sixty rooms in a luxury resort in Spain.
And now, the house makeover:
Oval Office Extreme Makeover?
On the President’s first day back in the office from vacation, facing a deteriorating economic horizon, one Internet site is claiming he has returned to a newly redecorated Oval Office, complete with new carpets and drapes.
A White House spokesman tells ABC News the administration will have no immediate comment on the Drudge Report that “workers have been busy installing new carpets, drapes, painting, etc. in Oval Office.” But mediamatters.org, a progressive media watchdog site, has pounced, defending the Obama administration.
Of course Media Maters blamed Bush. Who else! Change!
Obama’s giving a speech from the Oval Office but we won’t get to see the new decor:
The President has a prime time address scheduled Tuesday evening from the Oval Office on the end of combat operations in Iraq, but under traditional White House protocol, the network television camera will be allowed to focus only on the President at his desk, without wider angle views of the office drapes and furniture.
Meanwhile, President Skippy goes on vacation
It’s the summer of recovery, alright.
