Today, the White House garden turned into a beer garden as President Obama hosted Professor Gates and Sgt. James Crowley.
Who cares what they talked about and who cares what they drank. Look at what they're sitting on. The outdoor furniture looks like something my mom would have bought from Kmart growing up. I'm talking Kmart before Martha Stewart.
In this video from CBSNews you can clearly see what looks like garden furniture behind Sgt. James Crowley.
Is that cast iron? Vintage? It looks nice. A lot nicer than the flimsy looking patio set they put on display for the photo op. I love the visual of the bartender walking up to four men sitting in furniture that looks like it could break at any moment.
This is indeed a teachable moment. No matter how powerful a man is ,when his buddies come over to drink some beers they're not allowed on the good furniture.
