Obamas Denied Presidential Guest House

Obamas Denied Presidential Guest House

Sunday, December 14th 7:45pm Dear Diary, This is unbelievable. I am so outraged, I can’t hardly believe this hasn’t been made more of an issue. Newly elected commanders-in-chief and their families are allowed to stay at the Blair House five days prior to inauguration. We had just asked if we could would be allowed to move in a few days earlier so that Sasha and Malia could start school in DC immediately after the holiday break. But since Bush is insisting that his pre-scheduled events and guests take precedence over us, we will not be allowed to move in early. Basically, we’re not allowed to stay in the guest house because Bush wants to throw parties for his friends, and they don’t want to do it with the First Family living in the house. I’m curious to find out which guests outranked the incoming President. I am so upset over this. This would never have happened if John McCain had been elected, and he and Cindy were moving into the White House. In that case, the Bushes would have greeted the McCains with open arms, and a bottle of champagne, I’m sure. Believe me, it is very difficult to find a house or apartment suitable for an incoming president in the DC area. It’s not like we’re asking for a mansion or penthouse apartment. We just want a comfortable home where we can live for a few weeks. But all landowners want someone who will live there for a long period of time, not a month. And this is all because we want our daughters to start school on January 5th. If anything, these people should have sympathy for a family prioritizing the education of their children. But per usual, parties are more important to Bush than education. Yours always, Michelle
