Change Comes to the Oval Office - Obama gets rid of a dumbass Bush rule on Day 1.

Bush is such an idiot. He always focused such important issues.

Change Comes to the Oval Office

A photo of President Obama in the Oval Office this morning is especially interesting because it's clear he's instituted a new dress code: The new president is not wearing a suit jacket.

It was a rule during the Bush administration that no one ever enter the Oval Office without a jacket.

4. Apparently the presence of a jacket absolves one of their sins.

8. They always had to have the facade
..just the right photo op. Too bad their visual dept was so whack.

One of bush's laments was he didn't land the plane in New Orleans.

Fucking little sniveling victim. bush has victimhood instead of manhood.

7. Bush wasn't opposed to putting his feet up on the desk or farting for laughs
in the Oval Office.

11. President Obama
Could wear a t-shirt in the Oval Office for all I care, as long he is eventually able to undo much of the damage caused by the Bush administration to the US economy.

12. Great! Now he needs to ditch the tie.
And wear jeans, running shoes, and a t-shirt. Real clothes, not silly dressup.
