Obama's Official White House Portrait Should be in Velvet
Can’t the campaigner-in-chief put aside politics for one day? During the portrait unveiling ceremony, honoring former President George W. Bush and his first lady, the Anointed One once again demonstrated his low character.
"The months before I took the oath of office were a chaotic time," Obama said, after explaining that the president's job is isolating, and that he and Bush have a connection since so few have held the job. "We knew our economy was in trouble, our fellow Americans were in pain, but we wouldn't know until later just how breathtaking the financial crisis had been."
Obama did note the Bush tried to get it right. "Still, over those 2 1/2 months, in the midst of that crisis, President Bush, his cabinet, his staff, many of you who are here today, went out of your ways--George, you went out of your way--to make sure that the transition to a new administration was a seamless as possible. President Bush understood that rescuing our economy was not just a Democratic or Republican issue, it was an American priority. I'll always be grateful for that."
When they unveil Obama’s official portrait, I hope it’s in velvet, because that would aptly describe his low character and presidency.
