Skip to comments.White House under fire for adding Obama policy plugs to past presidents' bios
Posted on 05/16/2012 7:00:19 PM PDT by Justaham
The Obama White House is drawing ridicule for appending the official online biographies of nearly every president over the last century in order to link President Obama's accomplishments to the former commanders in chief.
The Obama team went into the pages of U.S. presidents dating back to Calvin Coolidge to add friendly looking "Did you know?" fact boxes to the end of their bios. Those additions were used to plug a host of Obama administration initiatives, ranging from the health care overhaul to the so-called "Buffett Rule" to his green-energy policies.
For instance, the following line was added to the official bio of the late President Ronald Reagan: "In a June 28, 1985, speech, Reagan called for a fairer tax code, one where a multimillionaire did not have a lower tax rate than his secretary. Today, President Obama is calling for the same with the Buffett Rule."
The White House is coming under heavy criticism from conservatives for the changes, and not just to Reagan's page.
Late Tuesday, the White House defended itself, claiming the staff was merely adding links to other pages.

Nobama looking to his rational base to get the facts out, and burn down a local depository. FUBO you bunch of MoonBat derelicts. Nobama is nothing more than butthurt.
Says the Malignant Narcissist:
“It’s all about me.”
That’s inexcusable. These people have no shame.
Sorry, but..........what the hell did you just say?
Drop the turd in the Jimmy Communist Carter punch bowl, Mayby the gay Johnson unit. Maybe even FDR or the other communist believers. But, don’t mention the Marxist Zerobama in the same sentence with any past presidents who valued freedom for US CITIZENS!
Those bios are all evolving.
The last six words will do....
Obama created the Earth and the heavens
Obama said let there be light
Obama won the revolutionary war
Obama freed the slaves
Obama completed the transcontinental railroad
Obama invented radio
In an effort to assist in community organizing, President Barack Obama invented the internet.
Tom Lehrer - "Lobachevski"
The affirmative action token knows that his reign will be viewed as a non-period between presidents that mattered; he has nothing to distinguish himself (especially if the disastrous ObamaCare is tossed - bad publicity is better than no publicity for this fake).
At least he hasn’t put his head on all the busts of past Presidents yet.
OMG! He’s a bigger narcissist than Al Gore!
In a successful environmental marketing campaign, Barack Obama hand painted the spots on a limited number of owls in the Pacific Northwest. Larger owls immediately collected the entire set.
President Barack Obama has an unknown writing credit for “Love Story” starring Al and Tipper Gore.
His moonbat base is not going to pull his ass out of his record. OWS throwing bricks at banks after Peloso et al; supports that, is not going to help.
I just woke up, thanks.
Of course, that is the way the real world works, but in the Obama world it is OK to pull crap like that..
Cheer up. The Administration knows what its doing.
This is the opposite of plagiarism, it’s false attribution. This isn’t stealing someone’s words, this is stuffing your words in someone else’s mouth.
But I like your quote. I’m stealing it.
The Four Tops went on to Motown stardom after political ambitions resulted in a young Barack Obama leaving the band.
Albert Einstein was credited with the discovery of the Theory of Relativity after reworking his original equation - Which Barack Obama found offensive to Muslims.
Like a stain getting into your tile grout.
Nightmare, please end in Nov.
We can all thank Allah Obama stopped the Mongol Hoard from invading the Americas.
One of the Photoshopped from the RNC's Obama In History site. Funny stuff!!
The elders sat around the fire and asked Obama, “Barack, what is best in life?”
He replied, “To Fool the voters, raise the taxes before you and hear the lamentations of de wimmenz”.
This served as inspiration for the famous scene in the Arnold Schwartzenegerr movie, Conan the Barbarian”.
I thought that was the inspiration to one of the early, early episodes of Red Dwarf.
Never forget, Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize just like Henry Kissinger. They probably should have given it to him before Kissinger in fact, at the age of 11.
Could be. Now that I think about it though, Barack Obama also had the original role of Appolo Creed in Rocky. But he had to step down over prior acting commitments. Seems he was scheduled for an Iranian production where he climbed out of a well.
Then the Revolution happened and that gig was postponed.
The new tourist guy. Let’s hope this catches on....
Needs a caption. How about “Hi there ;)”
I sure am glad Obama got that Galileo guy off the hook with the Church. And people scoff at his Harvard education!
The Barack Obama coming announcement was inspired by the Lamar Latrelle role in “Revenge of the Nerds”.
Sounds like a clever kid’s civics class school project, maybe. As anything substantive it is a total yawner. Every age has had its follies; why boast of following in those follies’ footsteps?
Barack Obama was also responsible for making the earth round solely to discredit uppity white scientists.
His life story also inspired others to write the Magna Carta.
What a treasure I received tonight!
Inspired by the fairytale story of Sleeping Beauty, President Barack Obama devoted his adult life to riding the ‘white horse’.
The annointed one landed on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day. When his LCM pulled up to the water’s edge, he yelled out “where did you say were are?” Someone replied ‘Omaha Beach’ boy and he yelled back, “oh, I thought we were landing on Obama Beach!”
The original draft to President Barack Obama’s inauguration speech began with the words “If Frank Marshall Davis had a son...”
Ping to Laz...more fun to be had here ;)
