Andrew Card is upset that Obama, unlike Bush, doesn’t require a suit coat and tie in the Oval Office.
Dr. Mr. Card:
On a recent show of Inside Edition, you state:
The Oval Office symbolizes…the Constitution, the hopes and dreams, and I’m going to say democracy. And when you have a dress code in the Supreme Court and a dress code on the floor of the Senate, floor of the House, I think it’s appropriate to have an expectation that there will be a dress code that respects the office of the President.
Rather than have a President whose clothes respect the Presidency and the Constitution, I would much rather have a President whose actions show respect for our nation’s cherished institutions and ideals–or do we need to revisit Bush’s role in secret wiretaps of citizens, extraordinary rendition and secret CIA prisons, authorizing torture and suspending rights of habeus corpus?
Oh, and by the way . . . FUCK YOU!
