This email is making the rounds (and blowing up on FreeRepublic); apparently that Muslin Negro Manchurian candidate from Kenya who stole the election and conned his way into the Presidency has the nerve to disrespect, well, everything by putting his feet up on his desk.
Oops. Wrong photo. Let’s try again.
Nope, still got it wrong.
There we go – third time is the charm. Here’s the text going around attached to the photo of Obama.
Does this photo taken in the Oval Office convey anything to you about attitude and arrogance?
Would you speak with the Chief of Staff, your Chief Economics Adviser, and your Senior Adviser with your feet up on the Resolute Desk – a gift from Queen Victoria to President Rutherford B. Hayes in 1880?
We should inundate the White House with emails demanding that he stop desecrating his office and keep his feet off of our furniture.
This arrogant, immature, self-centered idiot demonstrates repeatedly that he has no sense of honor, or of simple decency.
While this posture is disrespectful in any culture, it is absolutely never done in any executive setting.
Further, in over half of the cultures of the world, it is recognized not only as disrespectful, but as an extreme insult ot show the bottom of your shoes. In some cultures it could also get you killed!
He thinks of himself as a king — and not as a servant of the people, humbly occupying our White House for his term in office.
Electing him was an enormous mistake — and will cost us in many ways, for generations
Well, I guess it’s a good thing HeWhoShallNotBeNamed didn’t have his feet down – he might have ruined the carpets with all of that dirt from the cotton fields.
Snopes blows up the ridiculousness of the email. I also find it interesting that now wingnuts are interested in “cultural sensitivity”.
