"If you’re headed for a cliff, you’ve got to change direction," Obama said. "That’s what the American people called for in November, and that’s what we intend to deliver."

President Bush's former Chief of Staff, Andrew Card, doesn't appreciate President Obama taking his cues from Phil Collins:
"There should be a dress code of respect," Card tells INSIDE EDITION. "I wish that he would wear a suit coat and tie."
"The Oval Office symbolizes...the Constitution, the hopes and dreams, and I'm going to say democracy. And when you have a dress code in the Supreme Court and a dress code on the floor of the Senate, floor of the House, I think it's appropriate to have an expectation that there will be a dress code that respects the office of the President."
Card continued, "I don't criticize Obama for his appearance, I do expect him to send the message that people who are going to be in the Oval Office should treat the office with the respect that it has earned over history."
