Oh, Andrew--You're a Card!
There's nothing like one of the old Bushies to tell us all how Obama ought to govern. In true Republican/Fox News style Card implies that Obama comes scratching into the Oval Office in stained sweats. What a liar.
CARD: I found that Ronald Reagan and both President Bushes treated the Oval Office with tremendous respect. They treated the Office of the Presidency with tremendous respect. And some of that respect was reflected in how they expected people to behave, how they expected them to dress when they walked into the symbol of freedom for the world, the Oval Office. And yes, I’m disappointed to see the casual, laissez faire, short sleeves, no shirt and tie, no jacket, kind of locker room experience that seems to be taking place in this White House and the Oval Office.
Yes, never have we seen higher expectation of a White House staff than those set by Dubya and Dickie:
The treatment of the Constitution like toilet tissue;
The use of the U.S. Treasury as petty cash for cronies in no-bid contracts;
The seizing of a country for its oil under the guise of spreading democracy;
The sale of the environment to the highest bidders;
The fostering of an anti-intellect, anti-science culture...
Yes, those were the good old days! Thanks for reminding us all, Andrew, of the Tremendous Respect in which the administration held the Oval Office.
Now, Andrew, go hang yourself with your fucking tie.
Furthermore, Obama literally has to roll up his sleeves to work hard cleaning up after 8 years of all those elephants in the Oval Office.
Talk about stinking the place up!
