This may seem petty, but I don’t like Obama’s changes to the Oval Office. While the family was on vacation, the oval office was getting a makeover. The new carpet features quotes from Lincoln, both Roosevelts, Kennedy, and MLK.
The carpet isn’t what bothers me. It’s the couches and pillows, which make the room look more like a living room than an office.
The happiest person in all of this is probably Fmr. Pres. Bush, who now gets the old carpet that Laura designed for the room. It will probably find its way into his Presidential Library.
