Bob Gough Remarks on Recent Photographs Taken in the White House
June 30, 2012
I note with disgust the recent photographs of gay activists giving the “finger” to Reagan’s official portrait in our White House.
I am accustomed to seeing photos of Obama with his feet on the historic Resolute desk in the Oval Office. The Resolute desk was a gift from Queen Victoria to President Rutherford B. Hayes in 1880 and was built from the timbers of the British Arctic Exploration ship Resolute. The peace treaty of the Spanish-American war was signed on the Resolute desk. Now, Obama parks his feet on this priceless piece of history like a sullen thug in a Chicago Section 8 housing project.
Recently Obama hosted a gay-rights activists reception at our White House. The activists posted photographs of themselves on Face Book giving the “middle finger” to Reagan’s official portrait hanging in the White House as they attended the reception.
I am looking forward to the departure of the present disagreeable occupants of our White House.

Mr. Gough would know about disrespect. He has absolutely no respect for President Obama and has continued to write letters of disrespect attacking everything Mr. Obama has done. I find it ironic that President Obama was elected by a large majority of the people on a health care reform platform only to have the minority, such as Gough, decide "we the people" are not allowed to get what we vote for. I hope we a President Romney so we will get the depression and dictatorship Mr. Gough so desires. I am sure Mr. Gough will find someone else to blame.
