Hey Obama how about spreading some of your wealth around instead of spending it on an expensive decorator.

12. COME ON, girls in private school, a gas guzzling ride, Lobster Dinner, mother in law moving in, and NOW a tax-payer- paid Hollywood decorator!! Our tab keeps growing doesn't it? Why do the living quarters NEED to be redecorated anyway? Come on, I am sure they can work with what they have, America simply cannot afford to pay someone to decorate the Obama's living quaters, and we shouldn't have to!

Hey Moron! The Whitehouse houses a lot of furniture from different periods and each new admin. can choose from the already in place inventory to decorate. No one is tapping into your tax money to do this...every administration does this when the old moves out and the new moves in. Do a little research instead of bitching about everything..and you might learn something.

What?    

As anyone can see there are two I love Barack posts. I was referring to the one that stated that a person should only refer to him/herself as an American. I was merely pointing out elementary history lessons. If that was offensive, I do apologize.

Bush just spent $150,000 on new gold rimmed designer china for the White House before he leaves. That's right... $150,000!!! Every president has redesigned the White House when arriving. This is nothing new. So those of you pro-Bush Obama bashers need to educate yourselves.

FACT: The President-Elect's family is alloted a certain amount of $ to redecorate the living quarters at the White House.

So what?? Every other President was allowed these funds too! The White House is America's showplace. It should get a facelift every so often.

Regarding the girls going to private school....DUH!!! Do you really think they could just go down to the nearest public school and register?? Maybe they could catch the bus out in front of their house!?! They MUST be in private school for their own good!! They can be better protected in a private setting!!

Michelle's Mom moving in?? Great idea!! Michelle will be very busy for the next few years. Who better than their Grandma to take care of them!! Do you conservatives think they should hire some (expensive) Nanny?? Get real!

Oh and another thing....

To be perfectly fair, there is a not for profit group that is paying for the china that the Bush' picked out. It does not come out of taxpayer $. It is a tradition that all 2 term Presidents do this for posterity.
