Bush to Obama -- No Movin' on Up

12/13/2008 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lame duck just got lamer: George Bush isn't letting Barack Obama move into DC ten days early, because his peeps have got to party.

The Obamas had asked the President if they could check in early at Blair House, the official guest residence across from the White House, starting on January 5, because the Obama girls are starting school. But Bush's people rejected the request on the grounds that "receptions and gatherings" are being held there and the house won't be available for them until ten days later.

The official Obama camp have said they're cool with it. Right. Laura Bush's spokeswoman says it's a "non-story."

Obama is a disgrace!!    

Is that really warranted,

You're hoping that for people making nasty comments about both Obama and Bush, right?

I'm talking about those making nasty, racial slurs. I personally don't care for neither Bush or Obama, but why the racism?

Yowza.. for this actually being quite a non-story, the toothless hillbillies certainly chomped at the bit to spew their hatred. It really is sad that there are still so many ignorant people that are angry that our country is going to get better (hopefully). Seriously I cannot imagine anyone thinking what Bush did to us was good, but you idiots would prefer the majority of the country be homeless and jobless than to stand behind the man that your fellow Americans voted into office?? Seriously?

I suppose any possible way that you can justify voting for the Worst President Ever.. but if that justification comes laced with racial slurs and jabs at the man's young daughters.. I guess the safe anonymity of the internet is golden to you dirt bags.

Regardless of what protocol is that's sort of what the story meant by the Obama's asking to be let in early. For a president that has approval ratings lower than Nixon did when he left office, has made the rest of the world hate us, and put our country into a serious recession with more debt than in our countries history...yeah just not so sure they've earned that right for those "receptions and gatherings".

They should due us all a favor and get out of office early let alone let the Obama girls stay in a house 10 days early while they start school rather than in a hotel....give me a break.

Liz,
Sorry, I'm not a toothless hillbilly!!!!!

The Bush Administration is following proper protocol...why should they make an exception???
This has Michelle Obama written all over it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They think they are high and mighty......

Well, guess what...Obama does not take office "officially" until Inauguration Day!!!!!!!!!!!
What is he going to put his hand on???, since he is a MUSLIM, and not a Christian, what is he going to take the oath on, "AIR", that is going to be poetic, since that is all that man is full of!!!!!!!!!!
Oh, by the way, you may want to research "The Worst Presidents in History" before making such a bold remark!!!!!!

Remember, it was the Democrats voted into office in 2006 that messed us up and put us where we are now!!!!!!!

There is NO WAY one man can take the wrap for everything, look at the 2006 Democrats voted in, and what they voted on!!!!!!

People who make racial comments are clearly those of small minds and little respect for others and their selves. They add nothing to our society kinda like math where as a zero adds nothing and subtracts nothing from a number. They are not part of the solution and they are not part of our problem they are a problem and theat to them selves and them selves only. We need these people to see how blessed and fortunate we are to have our sanity intact and continue our work in uplifting humanity. This why Obama is where he is. This presidency is bigger than obama and everyone else for the good of all. God Bless All!!!!!

For the sake of your little argument, nowhere does it say the President has to be a Christian. If that issue were to come up, the President-elect would simply say "I solemnly affirm". And anyway, Bush put his hand on the bible and swore to uphold the Constitution....and when that did not happen he wasn't struck by lightning. So I would not worry about the bible being or not being used if I were you...apparently it does not matter.

Sorry, Will!! Apparently if you took offense to my comment, there's a reason. Also, even if you were able to hang onto your own teeth, you still reek of backwater ignorance.

Now, I don't honestly see why you felt the need to call ME out for expressing my disgust at the blatant racism in this thread.. but I can understand why an ignorant tool like yourself would completely miss the point of my post. First line: NON-story! Protocol is protocol, no matter how bad the country wants Bush's ass outta there, and the Obama's respect it. Now how about you quit sludging up the gene pool with your cousins and learn to read, buddy.

The only reason you think that the Obama's think so highly of themselves is because if they are elitist intellectuals, then you don't feel quite so bad about being a redneck moron.

Looks like William has mistook his personal opinions as unwavering facts. He needs to take a break from whatever he is sniffing and come up for some fresh air before he suffers a brain aneurysm. But from the looks of it, seems like the brain damage has already been done.

Much ado about absolutely nothing. The parties etc. were undoubtedly planned a while ago, and the Obamas just asked more recently to see if it was available since the kids had to be in D.C. for school early. It wasn't available, but I'm sure they have other housing options. I doubt that anybody in the Bush or Obama families was bothered by any of this. TMZ is always creating mountains out of molehills. More precisely - out of microscopic specks of dirt. Some people get all their exercise jumping to take the bait.
