Google Changes Name Of White House To Barack Obama White House

And I am not even joking.

While googlemapping a location on New York Avenue in DC, I was trying to understand exactly where this area was in relation to the rest of the city; New York Avenue is a long fricken avenue. So I did a directions search, from the “White House” to the address on New York.

No can do, said Google. Had no idea what I was talking about. It did helpfully suggest “Barack Obama White House” at 1600 Penn Ave. I took it but I didn’t like it.

I realize that some people may not understand this – certainly neither Google nor Barack Obama really have absorbed this – but that is not his house. It belongs to the people of the United States. He doesn’t own it or pay a mortgage on it. He lives there rent-free for four years.

It is offensive when Barack says, “my house” as he’s done a few times. And as Google is doing now too.

I don’t recall Google calling it “George Bush White House”. This is just ridiculous. We are not “his people” or “his subjects” and that is not his goddamned house.

    I am glad I’m not the only one piqued by that “my house” crap. Thanks R1!

  3. It ain’t their house and AF1 is not their personal private jet. I’m getting just a little fed up with their whole I, Me, My attitude.
