Obama To Get Second Oval Office

keep spending

Quote:This summer there will be two Oval Offices in the White House complex, and it won’t be a case of double vision.

In preparation for a major, two-year renovation of the West Wing, the government is undertaking extensive work to complete a new executive office for President Obama at the south end of the adjacent Eisenhower Executive Office Building, RCP has learned.

The president’s facsimile Oval Office, created as a nearly identical replica of the most famous ovoid room in the world, is slated to be ready for occupancy by August if Obama is ready to move and if design challenges are resolved. The build-out of the new “West Wing quarters” inside the Eisenhower building has begun, but unforeseen construction hurdles may alter plans for the eventual placement of the new office inside the EEOB, according to several knowledgeable sources.

The timing of Obama’s move to a substitute executive suite is in part dependent on the president’s readiness to begin working in the temporary quarters for what could be as long as two years, sources told RCP. The West Wing phase of a larger, $376 million project begun in September 2010 was put on pause through last year’s election, although funding and contracts were ready, the sources said. If Mitt Romney had won in November, Obama would have handed decisions about whether and how to proceed with the rehab project to his successor, they added.

$379, 000, 000.00? What are they doing, replacing the masonry with palladium? Tritium lightbulbs? They could build FOUR Comcast Cable skyskrapers for that money.

Blast hardened bunkers can get expensive . . . Wink

And you need a lot of amenities to ride out the shit storms.
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

Yeah, because we really need to be paying for a new office for him when sooo many hard-working, honest Americans who want to work can't find a job and we are in so much debt it isn't funny. Angry

Here's what the new design is going to look like!

"Mien Fuhrer! I can walk!"

I don't see what the point of blast hardening the Whitehouse would be. Unless the new Oval Office was going to be 500 feet underground, the Whitehouse is at the top of every nuclear power's shit list and is pretty much going to take a direct hit without a doubt, which nothing can really withstand.

It will be interesting though to see how much fatter the people who work there will get now that they don't have to walk so far.

Most of the cost is going to be for a new expanded sewer system for all the SHIT he has been handing us for the past 4 years and he knows that there is going to be a LOT more in the next 4....

The largest of the Washington DC sewer plants processes approximately 500,000,000 gallons of sewage per day.
