President Obama: The Evil Decorator

How could we have missed it! While the country has been focusing on the ruling regarding President Obama's health care legislation (his un-American and unpatriotic attempt to provide affordable health care for all Americans), he has been quietly and surreptitiously altering the image of the White House from American to Middle-Eastern décor. Some conservatives have compared him to Hitler the evil dictator; but, even more sinister, is the revelation that he is, in fact, Obama -- the evil decorator. Luckily evidence of this plot has been uncovered and is circulating around the country through chain emails. Without them the Arab/Muslim drapes might have remained undiscovered and undisclosed. But luckily there is a keen eye out there protecting us from this secret and frightening transformation of the patriotic decor and feng shui we hold sacred.

Here are excerpts for which we will be eternally grateful:

For a long time, we have noticed that the decor at the White House has changed since BHO moved in. (we just call him BO)

The Oval Office is now stripped of the traditional red, white, and blue,
and replaced with middle eastern wallpaper, drapes, and decor..
The hallway that he walks out of to talk to the press now has middle eastern
chairs, drapes, etc. And the thing that has bothered me the most is the bright
yellow drape behind him every time he speaks from the white house.
It has Arabic symbols on it and has been there from the beginning.

Today I received this and it clearly shows what I have been noticing.
That bright yellow curtain is highly visible, but as you scroll down,
you will see what is predominantly absent. Also, as you look at
the pictures of other presidents speaking from the same spot, look
at the traditional 'American' background and decor as opposed to
the new decor.
Trust me when I say that this is intentional. It should
alarm every American.

I am duly alarmed, but not by these revelations, but rather by the fact that I received this from a well-educated friend of many years for whom I have great affection and respect. (I will not bother to point out how false and ridiculous the claims are).The history of the email indicates that it has been forwarded by and to many others. And this is not the first. I have received others with equally ridiculous claims and charges against the president from Republican friends who should know better. I can understand disputes and complaints about the president's policies regarding health care, the economy, immigration, gay marriage, etc., but for these ludicrous and malicious claims promoting fear to receive acceptance and warrant dissemination by intelligent, educated people is what should alarm us.

Unless we want the crazies to rule the country -- let's please use that forward button with greater discretion! As a great and ancient Greek philosopher once said: "Garbage in; garbage out".
