The White House looked more ghetto when Bush was in it than today. At least, the White House is now open to the people that owns it, the American people, NOT the American politician. The White House today receives more guests and offers tours than before, because other presidents kept so much secret from the people, and their arrogance they felt they were better than the people they represented. Wendy P, this answer is NOT for you, it is for those who would read this for an answer to your lame racist question. As far as I concern about you, you are still struggling to adopt and live like a human being among all people of different ethnic background and diversity. You should take a gun and shoot yourself like your grandparents did in the past.
