Former President Bill Clinton Back in the White House Oval Office Comments … “I just love that rug”


Any one ever notice that Bill Clinton always seems to need to grab the spot light of an event by saying some of the most inappropriate things? Yesterday’s Presidential meet up was no different. Get used to it Barack … it will just be one of the many during your administration.


It was an extraordinary gathering of the President-elect Barack Obama, President George W. Bush and former Presidents, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter. With such an unprecedented photo op and gathering what sound bite was the most eye opening and would have made traffic stop when heard? The one of course uttered by former President Bill Clinton commenting on the Oval Office rug … “I just love that rug.”  Probably not as much as the rug that you had in the Oval Office during your Presidency? File this one in the category of comments Bill Clinton is never allowed to say. Another might be while talking to his wife Hillary, hey honey that’s a great dress, you look good in blue.

What did they talk about? Time and memoirs may let us know, but judging by a remark Mr Clinton made to President George W Bush before they headed into the adjoining dining room, there was plenty of room for idle conversation at the ultimate power lunch.

“I just love that rug,” he cooed, looking down at the pale gold rug with sunbeam design that Mr Bush brought with him in 2000 and which will shortly be packed off to his home state Texas.

      You think Bill was thinking about that stain he had removed from the rug that was there before. Monica looked good on that rug. Memories!

      There was a comment in an AP story carried on Yahoo tonight that a number of DEMOCRATIC senators are starting to be heard publicly criticizing the Obama deficit-spending plans, saying that they do not help the ultimate goal of creating jobs.

      It might not be as smooth sailing in Washington as some people think….

      Looks like Pres Clinton was the only one in the room that said anything truthful during the whole meeting.
