It must be a sign of the tone deafness of this White House that they keep releasing photos – White House photographer-taken photos – of President Obama with his feet on the Oval Office furniture.
Here’s a photo montage of the president not minding his manners.
If you’re wondering, yes, the desk you see him with his dirty shoes on is the historic Resolute Desk, made from the timbers of the British Frigate HMS Resolute and given as a gift to the United States by Queen Victoria in 1856.
It’s been used by many presidents, including Franklin D. Roosevelt and every chief executive since Jimmy Carter.
But it is perhaps best known for this:
Mr. President, get your feet off this desk.
Thanks to Granny Jan, who blogs at Granny Jan and Jihad Kitty, for putting together the montage.
