Fw: Keep Your Feet Off Our Furniture!

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 that he keep his frigging feet off of our furniture. This arrogant, immature, self-centered man has no sense of honor, or even simple decency.

While this displayed posture is disrespectful in any culture, it should never done in an 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, occupying our White House for his term in office. Electing him was an enormous mistake and doing so will cost us in many ways, for many generations.

Well, I have to say, I'm not thrilled about the President putting his feet on a historic piece of furniture. But apparently, Obama is no more "arrogant" or "disrespectful" than previous presidents. When I did a Google image search on "president oval office feet on desk", I quickly got photos of not only Obama, but G.W. Bush and Ford with their feet on the desk. In fact, it's rather amusing to note that you can take the exact text from above, not changing a word, and use it with this photo instead:

I wonder if the kunservatives just copied this email from one the libruls were sending around a few years ago.
