New Digs For His Majesty

Obama has redone the Oval office.

Obama's Oval Office - After Makeover

While it is said that no taxpayer money was harmed for this makeover, I have to say that the office of the Leader of the Free World is now very bland and uninteresting.

Beige, beige, beige.

It's only redeeming factor is that all contributions to this new decor were American made (so they say).

Gone is the "Official" and "Formal" ambiance of the office.
There's no Royal Blue or Gold.

To me, the Oval office now looks like a Marriott Hotel lobby.

Hopefully, the final phase of this makeover will occur at noon on January 20, 2013 when the current resident vacates the premises*.

* - Maybe sooner if Congress seriously deals with treasonous and unconstitutional acts or decides to do something about having proper papers produced.
