Top 10 Obama ties to history
Daily Caller ^ | 5/16/12 | Jamie Weinstein

Posted on 05/16/2012 7:33:48 AM PDT by Nachum

Earlier this week it was discovered that on the White House website, President Barack Obama had been inserted into each and every presidential biography dating back to Calvin Coolidge with the curious exception of Gerald Ford.

For instance, the White House biography of Franklin Delano Roosevelt notes, “On August 14, 1935, President Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act. Today the Obama administration continues to protect seniors and ensure Social Security will be there for future generations.”

The Daily Caller has since discovered other historical sketches the president has been written into. Here are the 10 best:

10.) In 1941, Standard & Poor came into being after H.V. and H.W. Poor Co. and the Standard Statistics Bureau merged. In 2011, Barack Obama became the very first president in American history to preside over the down-grade of America’s credit rating when S&P changed its rating of America’s creditworthiness from AAA to AA+.

9.) After warning of the Nazi menace during 1930s, Winston Churchill became prime minister of Great Britain in 1939. Perhaps no single person was as valuable as Churchill in winning World War II and saving Western Civilization. Upon taking office in 2009, Barack Obama returned a bust of Winston Churchill that sat in the Oval Office to the British Embassy, even though the British government offered to allow the president to keep it through his administration.

8.) On his desk in the Oval Office, President Harry Truman had a sign that read, “The Buck Stops Here.” After three years in the White House, President Obama’s 2012 campaign has internalized a similar motto: “The Buck Stops with George W. Bush.”

Ford pardoned Nixon....Obama intends to pardon Holder, the entire democrat party and all terrorists. This was missing but will be addressed right after the election.

LOL!

I had a time choosing my favorite, but finally I settled for #2: In 1940, the novel “Lassie Come Home” was published. In 1943, the story about a fictional pup was made into a film. In 1954, “Lassie” became a TV series. As a child in Indonesia in the 1960s, Barack Obama ate a dog.

Is this some flavor of satire?

The first insertion to King FDR’s story was pro-Hussein.

All the rest, while stunningly and offensively true, do not suck up to Hussein.

Why was this article excreted?

To protect Hussein’s King FDR connection post and then show “humor” afterwards?

Reminds me of how Hussein “jokes” about his fraudulent BC.

I have one to add that involves

a man with no verifiable documented history
tying himself to history.

Barack Obama says his last two years in office are a daze, but he is making history just being there.

In 1968, young Obama met with President Johnson:

PRESIDENT JOHNSON: I understand you are a complete idiot. Where do you normally keep your head, son.

FORREST OBAMA: In the buttocks, sir.

PRESIDENT JOHNSON: Oh, that must be a sight.

"...a man with no verifiable documented history tying himself to history."

That reminds me of the Clintons who made millions selling their memoirs, but could only answer "I don't recall" when being questioned about incidents they were involved in during congressional inquiries.

“All of us MADE UP Tuttle.”

Hmm, well, enough of us certainly assented, and most American voters disgraced themselves to crown the peas of sh!t.

Nice obscure reference, here’s another:

“BOW to the King (Queen) of Garbage, BOW!”

I'd like to see one like this:

"In 1800, John Adams became the first incumbent white President to be voted out of office. In 2012, Barack Obama became the first incumbent black President to be voted out of office."

Now, can you get him, “tourist guy”, “looter guy”, and “evil Bert” all into the same shots?

In 1985, Barack Obama finds himself transported back to November 5, 1955 without the plutonium needed for the return trip!!

LOOTER GUY! I loved that website. Wonder what happened to him....I figured some left wing dope would try to “help” the “innocent victim” of evil George Bush...because he “hated” black people, dont’cha know.

The current, pathetic moves on Obama’s part, I think, shows his unraveling. He's not used to being under pressure to actually DO SOMETHING and be judged on it.

Just waiting until he blows. He or the First Beard, Michelle. You know she is like a pressure cooker....knowing that the first “gay American Preezy” is being outed via the inter-webs.

Dust off the popcorn machines everyone....Things are going to get very interesting in the next 5 months.
