Obama tramples the Constitution AND the furniture.

When I was growing up, children were taught “manners.” Things like saying please and thank you, sitting quietly in restaurants and movies, wiping shoes on the mat before coming inside and certainly never putting your feet on the furniture!

Clearly this is something Obama’s mother never told him.

And it’s not just any furniture. It’s the Resolute desk. According to Whitehousemuseum.org, the desk “was made from the timbers of HMS Resolute, an abandoned British ship discovered by an American vessel and returned to the Queen of England as a token of friendship and goodwill. When the ship was retired, Queen Victoria commissioned the desk from William Evenden, Royal Naval Dockyard at Chatham, England, and presented to President Rutherford Hayes in 1880.”

It has been used by every president since except Johnson, Nixon and Ford. It is a storied piece of our heritage. And it’s not a footstool.

Maybe Obama’s mom did tell him to keep his feet off the furniture, but he never listened because he was too busy doing this:

Now to be fair, mothers of other presidents were unsuccessful teaching that lesson to their sons as well:

And it’s not just Democrat mothers:

Furniture aside, I just wish we could go back to respect for the office in general. But I’d like to start with respect for the darned Constitution!

Brendan, they did put a picture of President Bush 43 and Carter in their article and said, “Now to be fair, mothers of other presidents were unsuccessful teaching that lesson to their sons as well.”

I don’t recall that picture or mention being there when I first wrote my comment an hour ago.
hmmm.
if i missed it, my bad.

Paul Sheridan

Nope, it was added later. When I first viewed the page she had written the new text but the picture wasn’t up yet. Then a few minutes later it was there.

Oh yeah, Brendan. That makes it alright. Good grief – can we please move into the present!

Brendan

No… it makes it no big deal.

You know who never put his feet up on the desk? FDR.

Uncle Ruckus

That’s the only way some think they can leave their mark in life…………

Uncle Ruckus

Wow…. Really??

Tracey
Guest

Yep really. Go back and look at all of Reagan’s pics. Always in a suit and tie. Also the Bushs.

When you are the President, I guess you get the feeling you can do whatever the hell you want, including receiving BJs in the Oval Office!! Ronald Reagan would never go into that office without wearing suit and tie.

Ladies and gents. Welcome to feet ghazi.

Suzanne

Wow. I don’t care. There are dozens of other things to complain about and get our attention for action, but this is not one of them. What I am surprised about it that this page would consider this worth our time right now. Ridiculously immature article. Seems petty … (and I’m a big fan of Mr West!)

Sue Hogan
Guest

It is a article to show how he disrespects the desk like he does with us. And why are you reading this article and not a fan of Mr. West and not it’s worth your time? I think maybe you need some attention.

Suzanne

Learn to READ.

Sue Hogan

Sorry, your right I did read that wrong and I apologize.

I could care less about feet on a desk…that is the least of our problems….Ted Cruz will bring back….

“It is a time for truth, it is a time for liberty, it is a time to reclaim the constitution of the United States”
Ted Cruz

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

TED CRUZ??? He is not a natural born citizen…birth certificate please!

Sallie98
Guest

Google it he released it 2 years ago……but it took obama years to produce his.. I bet you did not say the same of obama

mcffoster
Guest

Actually the only birth certificate that Obama allowed to be released of himself has proven to be a fraud. It’s just that both republicans and democrats are scared to death to make a half-breed accountable for the office that he holds and his own actions.

Uncle Ruckus

BORN in CANADA

Tracey

Nobody was worried about Obama’s birth certificate. Still not convinced he was born here

CheetoBuster

LOL!!! That’s rich coming from and Obama fan.

Imagine… John Lennon estate should sue Ted Cruz.

CheetoBuster

LOL…what douche you are…as if John Lennon was the only one in the world who could use the word….”imagine”

that’s never gonna happen,,, but the 2016 clown show is shaping up to be a good one..
maybe even better than 2012…

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

With Ted (shut down the government) Cruz and Ben Carson….well at least these men have the COURAGE to run…..ALLEN WEST doesn’t!!

Sallie98
Guest

Might be a good idea to see who really orchestrated the shut down before you comment……But why let the facts get in the way of some brain dead rhetoric coming from the left

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

It was CRUZ!!!

majorwiblit
Guest

Cruz/Carlson…. what a dream team…lol

Cruz; “I didn’t threaten to shut down the government”
After leading the GOP charge to shut down the government, Cruz repeatedly claimed
that he had nothing to do with the GOP shutting down the government.

Ben Carson: “Religion is needed to interpret science because ‘maybe it’s just propaganda”… now that’s funny…

David King

Clod.

Khristina Stowers

I think this is a silly story. However since it is a story that was writen…it is very disrespectful to treat a piece of furniture history in this manner. Rather if it’s obama, bush, any other president.

majorwiblit

gawd,,, you whine about everything…..

Elizabeth Lawson

And you and all liberals don’t? God you are a hypocrite You whine when you don’t get your welfare check or freebies

Tracey

Gawd you are a fool.

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

Why is he a fool cause he knows that this is whining?

James Lewis

The same was taught in my childhood. My Grandmother would have flipped the chair over with me in it.

johnb

the desk must be racist!

Cindy Poling Hannon

Feet on furniture is nothing compared to constant lying.

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

So when Obama does it its disrespect but when other presidents do it…oh thats just fine?? Sound like you are willing to complain about everything no matter how small it is

Elizabeth Lawson
Guest

NO IT IS NOT OK FROM ANYONE

Nina Mott
Guest

Did you not read the whole article. The author did not have to show the disrespect of other presidents. But they did! Sounds pretty fair reporting if ask me!

Tracey
Guest

Thiis is not a small thing!! This shows blatant disrespect for the history of everything that goes with the office he holds. That furniture does not belong to him. Would he do that to furniture he had tp buy? I think not.

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

Very small thing…the man scratched his but and you LOONS act like he is the first man in history to scratch his butt

Elizabeth Lawson
Guest

NO IT ISNT A SMALL THING. THE DESK DOES NOT BELONG TO HIM

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

small thing….where was your outrage when other presidents put their feet on the desk?

Sam Stewart
Guest

You’re talking about when Carter did it? We didn’t have the internet then. So, my guess is that these trolls were probably under a bridge someplace, Unc. :-/

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

Bush??

Yoma Ma
Guest

Allen slow news day? I cant stand the POTUS currently or the one before him- but this is becoming a little whiny if you ask me. Are we going to start looking at his socks next?

MotherBatherick
Guest

I’d like Col West to post that picture again of obama wearing his mommie jeans riding his girlie bicycle, you know, just to remind America of the sissy we have in the White House.

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

I believe that ALLEN has already touched this topic in a previous post! Recycled CRAP huh allen?

Kathy Sessler

Obama has no respect for anyone. Even his own Mother. and as for Arturo Robles I think you want Obama’s attention. Why is it illegals love Obama. Us True Americans need to take back America. We need another Revolution to Proof to the Government that we are tired of all the bullying we are facing from them. Shove Obamacare down their throats like they are doing to us.
