Melbourne, Jan 8 (ANI): US bloggers have declared war against ex-Australian Prime Minister John Howard for kicking US president-elect Barack Obama out of a bed at Washington’’s Blair House in the lead-up to the inauguration.

Last month, the Obama family asked the Bush administration if they could move into Blair House the security home near the White House a fortnight early to get their daughters settled at their new schools, reports the Daily Telegraph.

However, they were refused saying that it was not possible because foreign dignitaries had been booked in.

Now, it has come to light that the only dignitary staying overnight on January 12 is Howard.

Howard will be staying at the Blair House the night before he receives the US Medal of Freedom from retiring President George W Bush next week.

Meanwhile, the Obamas are staying at the Hay-Adams Hotel at Lafayette Park while they wait to move to Blair House. (ANI)
