Why doesn't President Obama give speeches from the oval office?

I think he has given five, three state of the union, one on Iraq and one on the oil spill.. The rest have not been from the oval office. What's up with that??

  • From minnesota-gerpie-lu's link, "The Oval Office symbolizes power, command, and authority".....


     


    Hrmmmmm.. Three things Obama does NOT symbolize...

  • Do you think when he gives speeches in front of the four flags instead of in the oval office, he is consciously trying to project an image different than Bush? (I don't know if I am saying that right.)

  • Why doesn't President Obama give speeches from the oval office?.....Because there's no outlets that the telepromter's power cord can fit, if it runs out of batteries? Just guessing......
