The Obama Oval Office has had a make over. It's Beige...very very 1970s Brady Bunch Beige. Oval Office gets a makeover: The Swamp Contrast that with the Bush Era version: And check out the Clinton version: Oval Offices in history (photos) Clinton's was rather over the top colorful, but at least the office had a positive, optimistic pallet. Bush's reflects excellent taste and is welcoming while being dignified. Obama's can only be described as Retro-Carter Era BEIGE - which does suit his horrible economic policy. Be Afwaid. Be Vewy Vewy Afwaid.
