"To: #44, From # 43.''

A folder left for President Barack Obama by former President George W. Bush on the Resolute desk in the Oval Office of the White House (White House photo by Eric Draper)

"To: #44, From # 43.''

The address on the envelope that President Barack Obama found at his desk at the Oval Office this morning, on his first full day of work.

A missive from former President George W. Bush.

Obama, who made the rounds of inaugural balls last night and returned to the White House at about 1 am EST, arrived at the Oval Office at 8:35 am this morning and spent 10 minutes alone in the office, according to the new White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs.

Obama read the note to him from Bush in the envelope marked "To 44 from 43.''

Dear Hussein Osama,
Edited on Wed Jan-21-09 01:42 PM by sparosnare
You better not mess up any of the awesome stuff I did over the past 8 years. I worked hard and will be the greatest president ever, so don't even try to do better than me.

Since you're keeping my cool-assed rug, make everyone take off their shoes before walking on it.

See ya later,

GW

P.S. I hid all the foreign leaders phone numbers. He he, he he.

13. Are they ever going to update that furniture?
Edited on Wed Jan-21-09 01:46 PM by Kalyke
It looks like something out of 1976. The straight-back chairs are OK, but the couches are hideous.

And that desk needs some love. The gold inlay is fading and the wood looks chipped under the lacquer.

P.S. And the fireplace needs painting. There is black stains on the mantle from previous fires/heat.

15. "Dear #44,
Here's the keys to the country. It pulls to the left a little, but just turn hard right all the time, don't crash inta Mexicanadia and ye'll be fine.

Heh heh heh.

I left alla my colorin' books in the secret drawer that Nicky Cage found in that movie. That movie was dumb, made mah head hurt. I chewed on the crayons a little, but they still color good and stuff.

If ya wanna come t'mah ranch sometime, it'd be a reall good photo thingie. We can "clear" some "brush" if ya catch mah drift - the good Columbian brush, heh heh heh.

Anyway, countrys yers now Obammy. No give-backs times infinity!

Smirkin',
#43"
