      I thought this picture was supposed to concentrate on the Girl Scouts and not the carpet?!

      Good goin', girls, And President and Mrs. O.

      was this 'supposed' to be a discussion of any sort at all?

      And believe it or not, that carpet, and the interior decor of the entire White House, indirectly affects us all.

      I do hope this discussion about the First Carpet is ironic :)

      There are far more important things to contemplate and worry about in life all over the United States besides the carpeting in the Oval Office. Like homeless people, hungry children, battery and sexual abuse of women and children, joblessness etc. It's all how you put it into perspective, I guess.

      I agree with you completely. The things you mention are indeed important; they deserve a more fitting platform than the comments on Flickr. But what about the seemingly less important things, like the First Carpet? Where can we safely discuss this matter?

      The desk with its natural grainy design is well seen here. I wonder how many presidents occupied it. Interesting image...and Michelle listens intently.

      Vitalissue, have you changed your username to Flag in distress 11/04/08?? The username has changed but the thoughts haven't. Nice try though.

      Amen. Look at those people.
      To me they are realy the First Family.
      The First Couple.

      They are model citizens, model partners,
      model husband and wife
      model man & model woman.

      I do not look down on anybody
      I do not look up to many
      I do look up to Barack Obama and Michelle, his wife.

      Kind regards, God bless all noble people of good will,
      and the First Couple especially,

      what if they, by accident, spilled their pinot noir all over the lovely yellow carpet?

      God Bless the First Carpet...and God Bless America...I say put in some new linoleum and be done with it, if the Obama's don't like it. That's ALL I'm willing to pay for.

    14. She Said Unprintable Things 54 months ago | reply

      I think the pinor noir might jazz it up actually.

      I'm sorry, I wasn't listening.
      Did you say something about Obamacare inflating the costs of wheelchairs by increasing the taxes on medical devices?
