CNN caught my eye today, Obama speaking in from of some gold curtains in what looks like the Oval Office. So, I googled "obama gold curtains." Got some close-ups. Looks to me like a photographer's decision to close the curtains & put some extra light on Obama, so he wouldn't fade into the BG. I found some pics of George Bush where it looks like he's sitting in front of the same gold curtains, opened, in different light.

The thing of it is, I also found some strange discussisons about the gold curtains. People seem to be jumping to the conclusion that he and/or Michelle ordered up the curtains on purpose to look as ostentatious as possible. Wierd.

Does anyone have any information about this?

Oval office history.

Bush put in gold drapes. Whether these are the ones or new gold ones, I have no idea.

eta; Apparently Bush's old drapes (so far)

no, I haven't heard about this (then again, I don't watch FOX news, lol)...but I can understand why they closed them to produce different light, because of his darker skin complextion.

next up, Obama urinates sitting down, is it an indication that he believes he's a part of a higher evolution of humanity?

LOL. Of course, I was just pointing out the silliness of all this micro-observation of Obama that is going on right now, but a good laugh is never a bad thing.

Most of the women where I work urinate standing up. They have a pathological fear of the toilet seat.

I was thinking more of the photog's challenge of lighting his face, & finding a good BG for it, than of any micro-interest in obama-minutea.
