7. I'm glad that someone is changing it from that god awful Bush "cow pattie and tumbleweed" theme. It will take at least a week to get rid of the Bush "cooties."

I THOUGHT WE WERE IN A RECESSION. WHY ARE THE TAXPAYERS HAVING TO REDECORATE THE WHITE HOUSE
FOR THE OBAMAS? IS THIS THE KIND OF "CHANGE" HE WAS REFERRING TO IN HIS CAMPAIGN PROMISES?
WE ARE IN FOR A ROUGH 4 YRS. DON'T BLAME IT ON ME--I DIDN'T VOTE FOR HIM!

FWIW.........tax dollars do NOT pay for the President's private quarters. It is private donations. The STATE & PUBLIC areas are paid for with a combo of tax dollars & donations. As to the new decorator............BORING.......jmho

For those of you that are complaining about our troops not having the body Armour they needed, well you need to be looking George W. Bush in the face and b*t*hing to HIM about it. He sent OUR MEN and WOMEN into combat in a country that DID NOT do a damn thing to us on 9/11, and he sent them KNOWING they were not COMBAT READY with the appropriate Armour. Bush didn't CARE! Die Baby Die! Our DEAD mean NOTHING to that EVIL piece of trash, and his sidekick, DarthVader Cheney!

How about little old Laura Bush spending $550,000 on CHINA that the White House DID NOT NEED two weeks before the old bi*ch left the White House? The Clinton's had replaced the china, and the Bush's hardly used it. It was a WASTE of OUR MONEY! Laura Bush is a stupid bi*ch!

How about Bush refusing the Obama's request to stay at Blair House while waiting for the Inauguration? Bush LIES and says the residence is occupied then forces some FORMER member of the Australian government to come to America. A FORMER member, I say! So the Obama's had to stay at a Hotel and the Secret Service had to rent the ENTIRE floor for security which COST US OVER $500,000!

EVERY soon- to- be-inaugurated President has stayed at Blair House... EVERY ONE that wished to HAD THE RIGHT to stay there so the Secret Service could keep them SAFE. Damn those freaking Bush's!!! Criminals, that is all they are!

So, as a last parting shot the Bush's cost US over a MILLION BUCKS just because they are stupid low class suckers!

The Obama's have EVERY RIGHT to change the RESIDENCE QUARTERS to make themselves feel at home. We are not talking about the entire White House.....just the RESIDENCE QUARTERS!

Who the hell would want to live in any rooms that Laura Bush decorated? I hope they both rot in hell for all the lives they have cost the United States! Burn baby burn Bush....you will get what is coming to you some day....at judgement day what will be YOUR excuse?

Why do people act like every other President, who happens to be White, does not also redecorate the White House? This is something that every new President (or should I say First Lady) does...so now that Obama's in there people are crying about our tax dollars??!?! FACT:Our government wastes millions of dollars on its commander-in-chief, regardless of what color their skin might be

OMG it has NOTHING to do with the color of their skin, why are YOU
making it racial? It has everything to do with the economy. We were
not in the state we are now when the other Presidents decorated the
living quarters.
I must say again, NOTHING to do with the color of their skin,
EVERYTHING to do with the economy.
Don't make it into something it is not.
