34. Because Romney ran a petty, mean-spirited, shameful campaign. He doesn't deserve

the honor and respect of even a visit to the Oval Office. OTOH, this must have galled Romney beyond belief, lol. I guess Queen Ann was too busy cancelling all the drapes & carpeting she ordered. I still remember that presumptious, premature, prom-updo party hair she was sporting after the concession speech. It looked a little mussed up, though, probably from the tantrum she threw when she found out that it wasn't "their turn" after all. I wouldn't be nearly this "petty" if Romney had run an honorable campaign with even a speck of integrity.

40. Soitenly! Speaking of edumacation, I discovered that, according to New York Magazine,

Obama's is the "less-optimistic rug" as compared to the rug from George W. Bush's Oval Office (left) with its radiant lines that move out from the presidential seal.

To be honest, I liked Shrub's better myself. And why did they need a new one anyways? Does the Oval Office really get that much traffic?

47. Traditionally, the outgoing president takes the rug with him

so the new president has to order one. I imagine after 8 years of heavy office traffic, it's OK for home use but needs replacement.

I preferred the darker designs, the seal in either a navy or maroon field. I imagine the off white shows less schmutz.

The rays did nothing for me. I thought they cheapened it.

57. Lol! I was afraid you'd say that. You see, I agree, but I just hate to admit it because, you know...

W!

As for replacing the rug, I think there are a few reasons for it.

1. It's kind of a statement that "there's a new sheriff in town."

2. Almost anyone in a high position gets to redecorate their office just as a matter of taste.

3. I think it's fair to have our president set up in an office with nothing the least bit shabby in it. A rug can get a bit shabby after 8 years of use. Especially if Karl Rove had been in the room often.

66. I don't see it at all as being "more optimisitic".

Those lines made that rug look busy and cluttered. I always thought it was gaudy and ostentatious. I like the current, more simple rug. It's not distracting like its predecessor.

17. I am looking at this photo trying to figure out why their poses, while so similar

are so different. I finally decided that the difference is that Obama stands on his toes, looks comfortable and poised, while Romney stands on his heels, looks stilted and uneasy. It's a vivid illustration of the differences between the two men. America made the right choice.

Yep. That's it.
