Obama Arrives For White House Tour, Talk With Bush

President-elect Obama and his wife, Michelle, have arrived at the White House for a visit, their first since Obama's landslide election victory.

President Bush and first lady Laura Bush were at the South Portico of the White House to greet the Obamas on a sunny fall day with moderate temperatures and colorful -- but fading -- autumn leaves.

Just a couple moments later, Bush and Obama were seen walking along the White House collonade to the Oval Office.

The Obamas' arrival had the look of a foreign head-of-state state visit -- although there were no fife and drum bands, speeches or official pageantry. The Obamas were driven up to the South Portico, where they were welcomed by the Bushes and escorted into the Executive Mansion that they'll call home in a little more than two months.

    ACORN said there will be rooms for rent at the Washington DC White House. Starting at the end of January 2009 for only $250.00 a month. All utilities, meals, snacks and drinks included plus free TV's and HBO in every room. All paid by the tax payers of America. If you cannot afford a room you could get one in the basement for less money. Please call Barack Obama for more information. Hurry the rooms will be rented fast. Call now !!! while they last.
