The Oval Office Gets a Makeover

The Oval Office, pictured below in April, before it's makeover.

The Oval Office - pictured below is the Oval Office -- the biggest change is the rug -- a honey-colored carpet with the presidential seal -- has a border that includes two noted speech excerpts. One reads, "GOVERNMENT OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE AND FOR THE PEOPLE," from Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, words that were among the most famous ever spoken by a president.

The other is, "THE WELFARE OF EACH OF US IS DEPENDENT FUNDAMENTALLY ON THE WELFARE OF ALL OF US." It's from a speech that Theodore Roosevelt gave at the New York State Fair in Syracuse, N.Y., on Sept. 7, 1903. Courtesy The Huffington Post. Click link for full post from The Huffington Post.
