West Wing Floor Plan


Last August, Dan Froomkin published this interesting visual of the real West Wing floor plan — and a roster of who sits most closely to the President of the United States on a daily basis.
Influencing the President is what much of us in the policy business try to do — legally of course and according to rules requiring transparency and such. I don’t have much to add right now, but I thought that the graphic depiction of what the immediate network around the Oval Office looks like is interesting.
More later.

    It’s interesting to see who has the corner offices. On the first floor, west side you have Josh Bolton (CoS) with a corner office then Dick Cheney with a middle office, and the other corner belongs to Steve Hadley the National Security Advisor. And Rove is central to all three of those guys. He is real close to the President, but has no windows.
    The second floor is less interesting.

    The president’s study is where Groper Bill would put the move on the chicks, including Kathleen Willey on Nov. 29, 1993. Willey was later subjected to a criminal intimidation campaign, originating in the White House and carried out by Nathan Landow, that including nailgunning her car tires, kidnapping or killing her cat Bullseye, approaching her in the park on 1-8-98 and trying to terrify her – the goon saying she wasn’t “getting the message.” Willey was deposed on Saturday 1-10-98 and the next day on Sunday morning the skull of a small animal was placed (posed) on her front porch in front of her.
    Also, the kitchen annex has a sink where Monica says that Bill … well, uh, … ok, I will skip the details. Let’s just say he finished the job.

    Interesting to see that the sychophantic Miers was over in the upper far corner.

    But, where do C.J., Josh, and Donna sit? Oh, wait, that’s the administration I wish we had.

    The “divide and rule” worked for the British Empire until it collasped and they left behind frontiers of conflict, see India-Pakistan etc.
    All the administration’s drooling about democracy was addressed to the gallery. Their plan to establish American hegemony, first in the ME then in the world, will take any kind of puppet government they can get.
    They had no problem shifting the goals from WND to democracy to a unified Iraq, to staying the course, never having wanted to stay the course, so another curve or underpass will not trouble them.
    I’ll stick to the Bolton “bad” ticket. If he changes his mind, it is for a reason.
    With the war on Xmas, Santa will not knock on doors and since the administration has moved on to Iran they are probably snorting among themselves about how they are duping us again.
    When Cheney climbs out of his hideout something bad is always going to happen.
