Oval office: Churchill bust thrown out, MLK bust replaces.

This made me rage, Churchill did more for our country in 1 year than MLK did in his lifetime. I am not saying that MLK was not a great man, but fucking seriosly? Ditching one of historys greatest men for MLK?

Also, it just occured to me that Martin Luther King Jr. was in fact a republican.

What made MLK a great man? What exactly did he do for this country? Not much...

And I thought I bitched about a lot of things. One could also argue that Churchill wasn't an American, so why have a bust of him in the first place? I don't see this as a big deal at all. Now the fact that he sent the bust back to the British is a bit of an insult, but just removing it from the Oval Office isn't a big deal.

Big whoop. It's his own fucking office. Someone can come in 2 years or 6 and redesign the damn thing over again and waste our tax dollars some more.

Just like MLK, Obama promises hope and change. Unfortunately, Obama's change is tangible and negative.

They removed it as some kind of insult, obviously. You telling me there wasn't enough room for a bust of MLK, and Churchhill? Pfft

When elected, I'm going to put a bust of BHO up with a big red circle and a red line crossing his face.

Tax dollars are not spent on Oval Office redecoration by the sitting President.

Replacing Churchill with MLK is replacing a symbol of a great figure in history with a symbol of a mediocre (at best) figure in history, which fits our current mediocre President quite well.

The same reason we have MLK day instead of Ben Franklin day. One did far more for civil rights and to abolish slavery than the other but he's white. Hey guess what, it's January 17th this year, the same day as Ben Franklin's birthday.

It's the one Clinton had, he gets a choice of desks, all of which are very historic. Still though, it is his office. He can decorate it however he sees fit. Now if he put up a bust of Huey Newton I'd have problems but MLK was a good man.

I see it more of the People's office. After all, aren't we paying for it?

Before the Vietnam war the Republicans were usually considered the more radical party. It took a few years with a weak ass Democrat (Carter) for the general population swing to the right and embrace Reagan. Now though it's cool to be a libtard again, which will change now that we have another weak ass Democrat in office. All I know is that whoever wins in 2012 will go down as one of the best presidents in history, just like Reagan did.

It's his office so I really don't give a shit. Churchill will probably find his way back in there after 2012.

So how does making the circle invisible do anything?

Lol. Hadn't considered that. Might need to scrap that whole idea and develop a picture that utilizes a green dot instead...

Got history wrong? Oops

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...090305100.html

President Obama's new presidential rug seemed beyond reproach, with quotations from Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. woven along its curved edge.

"The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice." According media reports, this quote keeping Obama company on his wheat-colored carpet is from King.

Except it's not a King quote. The words belong to a long-gone Bostonian champion of social progress. His roots in the republic ran so deep that his grandfather commanded the Minutemen at the Battle of Lexington.

For the record, Theodore Parker is your man, President Obama. Unless you're fascinated by antebellum American reformers, you may not know of the lyrically gifted Parker, an abolitionist, Unitarian minister and Transcendentalist thinker who foresaw the end of slavery, though he did not live to see emancipation. He died at age 49 in 1860, on the eve of the Civil War.
