Why single out Obama for putting feet on desk?

info@islandpacket.comSeptember 16, 2013 

I would like to ask the recent letter writer who took President Barack Obama to task for putting his feet on a desk a question: What is it specifically about this president that makes it "ignorant" or "arrogant" for him to prop his feet on the desk in the Oval Office, behavior that warranted no comment when previous presidents, including George W. Bush, did the same thing?

I think we all know the answer to that question.
