More on the Oval Office Rug

Remember last week’s grousing on the Dust Bowl Decoration of the Oval Office? Well, it gets better.

Two of the quotes woven into the border were, shall we say, mis-researched? Because in this day and age of everyone gets a trophy, we can’t just say they are just flat out wrong, can we?

First, the MLK quote is misattributed. King used the quote from Theodore Parker, an antebellum Unitarian minister and abolitionist, that he admired in many of his speeches.

Secondly, the quote from Teddy Roosevelt is taken out of context, making it appear that Roosevelt supported a socialist state. Reading the whole speech, you learn he certainly did NOT.

There is also the question of whether the designers took artistic license with the Presidential Seal woven into the rug. At first glance, it looks more like the Vice-President’s Seal, than the President’s.

Good grief, did these people skip every bit of homework in high school? Do they not know how to spell g-o-o-g-l-e?

We are in the best of hands.

Add this to the “Reset” button FAIL and the numerous other blunders. Is it any wonder why more and more people are coming around to the idea that maybe this guy wasn’t isn’t ready? Still?
