White House rebukes guests who flipped bird at Reagan portrait
 
The White House on Friday rebuked two visitors who were photographed last week at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue flipping the middle finger below a portrait of the late President Ronald Reagan.

The guests had been invited to a reception last Friday marking gay pride month. The images of them -- with both middle fingers raised, pointing up toward Reagan -- were first published by Philadelphia Magazine.
The White House did not approve.
"While the White House does not control the conduct of guests at receptions, we certainly expect that all attendees conduct themselves in a respectful manner. Most all do," Shin Inouye, a White House spokesman, said. "These individuals clearly did not. Behavior like this doesn’t belong anywhere, least of all in the White House."
Photographer Zoe Strauss and Matty Hart, national director for public engagement at the group Solutions for Progress, had posted the images of themselves to Facebook.
Hart, under his, wrote simply: "F--- Reagan."
He later posted a link on his Facebook page to the Philadelphia Magazine piece about their gesture.
Neither Strauss nor Hart have responded to FoxNews.com for comment.

I find it hard to believe that the Obama White White House 'rebuked' them

Regardless of what political views and opinions you have doing something like that still just shows a lack of class.

Yes it is.... and it is sadly a typical microcosm of the behavior of the left!

I seriousy doubt that you will find Republican 'visitors' that would do the things that these two worm heads are doing.

It was the Clinton White House that rented out the Lincoln bedroom and had people jumping on the beds.

It was Clinton White House staffers that vandalized parts of the White House as they were leaving after losing the election to Bush; I remember stories of staffers removing the letter 'W' from all computer keyboards.

Manners and class, the right has them. The left...not so much.

Just look at the difference between TEA party protests and the Occupy protests.

Its true that each side has morons, but my life's experiences have shown me the left has way way way more of them than the right and its not even close.
