    Wikipedia:
    The Resolute desk is a large, nineteenth-century partners’ desk mostly chosen by presidents of the United States for use in the White House Oval Office as the Oval Office desk. It 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. Franklin Roosevelt requested the addition of a door with the presidential seal to conceal his leg braces.[1] Many presidents since Hayes have used the desk at various locations in the White House, but it was Jackie Kennedy who brought the desk into the Oval Office in 1961 for President John F. Kennedy for the first time. It was removed from the White House only once, after the assassination of President Kennedy in 1963, when President Johnson allowed the desk to go on a traveling exhibition with the Kennedy Presidential Library. After this it was on display in the Smithsonian Institution. President Jimmy Carter brought the desk back to the Oval Office, where Presidents Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush used it. It is currently in use by President Barack Obama.

    He has never respected it; it is too American. I know he’s not a muslim, he’s a Black Liberationist, but he was raised muslim. There are too many photos of him with his feet either propped or perched on the desk. The soles of the feet are tools of insult in muslim culture.

      I think that’s as much Arab culture as Muslim. I have the impression that Indonesians aren’t nearly as hung up over feet. To the extent he was raised by a Muslim, it was by Mr. Soetero, and that only to the age of what, six? Pretty sure his maternal grandparents raised him atheist from then.

        Oh, sure; if you want to be all accurate and stuff, I guess.

        But wait! I thought you had to read the koran in the original pedophile Arabic for it to work? Does that make a difference?

        The informal rule usually runs like:
        when its good its in the Koran
        when its bad its not in the Koran, and if it actually is, then that’s a bad translation of it and the only real version is in Arabic, and if an Arabic fluent reader says “yeah it really is in the Arabic Koran”, then it’s being taken out of context, and when the complete context is spelled out showing how that sure is what it means for sure, the “SHUT UP YOU RACIST” you will be explained.
