Barack Hussein Obama is the President of the United States of America. Rightly or wrongly, controversy seems to follow this man. Whether its the blunder of not putting his hand over his heart at Tom Harkins picnic back in 2008 or jumping to conclusions about the police acting "stupidly" in the Harvard Law Professor story that led to the infamous beer summit in 2009, its clear that this is an imperfect human, to be sure.
One of the privileges of serving as our Commander in Chief is that he gets to work out of the historic Oval Office. A uniquely built room where the leader of the free world does most of his work.
One is expected to carry themselves with a sense of respect and dignity while in such a place. Especially the highest elected official in all the land. This particular Oval Office has been in service since 1934 when FDR was president. The history this room has witnessed is impressive, to say the least. It may be the most famous room in America.
It was with great disdain that I noticed a thread on facebook recently focused on this picture:
A picture of President Obama discussing something with a group of advisers doesn't seem unusual, does it? No, of course not. What's noteworthy is where President Obama's feet are. ON TOP OF THE FAMOUS RESOLUTE DESK!!! Most of us were raised to not put our feet on the furniture as kids, right? Right. Its disrespectful to do something like this. You can only imagine the outrage reflected in the comments on that FB thread.
