White House Busted!!
White House Dossier ^ | July 28, 2012 | Keith Koffler

Posted on 07/28/2012 1:51:01 PM PDT by yoe

The White House incorrectly claimed that a bust of Winston Churchill was not removed from the White House when President Obama moved in, insisting with emphatic certainty that it had simply been moved to the residence but then retracting the assertion.

In a “Fact Check” post added to the White House website Friday, White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer scornfully dismissed as “100% false” the “rumor” that Obama had removed the Churchill bust that had presided over the George W. Bush Oval Office and shipped it back to the British.

Turns out Pfeiffer’s was the false statement.
Picture

[snip] Pfeiffer then provided a White House photo of Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron admiring the Churchill bust in the White House residence.

[snip] “Hopefully this clears things up a bit and prevents folks from making this ridiculous claim again,” Pfeiffer sneered.

Well.

In what he labeled an “Update” but which is actually a “Correction,” Pfeiffer later added that there are in fact two busts, and the one that was in the Oval Office was indeed removed when Obama took office.

There is literally nothing this White House says anymore that I believe.

I’m of the opinion that everything is a lie until proven truthful . . . and even then it better be double checked.

Busted twice over the “heads.”

If Obama thought Churchill too odious to be a presence in the Oval Office, why would he want a bust in the residence?

There was a saying about Clinton: “He’ll tell a lie, even when the truth would serve him just as well.”

Looks like it goes double for this administration.

What the heck is so hard about saying “Oops, I got it wrong, there are TWO busts, and one was indeed returned to the British in 2009”.

Had he done that, it would have been a 15-second story and be dead by now.

We are long past the time when every ‘name’ in the conservative sphere with a podium and a microphone should have started saying the honest truth about this admin. As you said, Nothing these people say can be trusted. NOTHING.

If water was said by this admin to be wet and conduct electricity, I’d throw a radio in the tub and hop in because all evidence of these people’s honesty points to it being a lie.

Seriously. The ‘respect for the office excuse isn’t cutting it. We are past that. There is nothing there to respect because a liar ‘is’ the office now. So call him on it every time he/they draw breath. Non stop. Until every American is so sick of hearing it that they give in and accept it just to make it stop. New game, new rules.

You’d never catch the impeached bent-one (X42) removing a bust from the White House.

“There was a saying about Clinton: “He’ll tell a lie, even when the truth would serve him just as well.””

Greg Dulli of the band Afghan Whigs had a song called “Crime Scene Part 1, which had the lyric “A lie, the truth? Which one will I use?”

Sorta fitting.

THIS is what Conservatism has become? Arguing about a bust in the WH and where, or where not, it may be???? Wow. No wonder we keep nominating idiots.

Let’s have some ideas. Let’s govern. Let’s do something other than counting angels on the heads of a pin.

This is idiotic,. And the only thing more idiotic ... the WH responding to this idiocy.

Not to worry! If in fact this admin said water was wet and conducted electricity, I assure you of my safety. Since they are wholly unable to tell the truth, it will be more likely that the laws of physics were somehow altered without our awareness.

I mean seriously now...What has greater odds of happening? Me getting electrocuted (and I assure you many here would like that ;) or the administration telling the truth?

If one goes with the statistics, I should be perfectly safe! ;)

Winston is grateful to be at the English ambassador’s house. Had he stayed in the Oval Office, he would have had to witness the -resident with his small mind and enormous ego screwing up America every day,

Why should they care?

They’ve spent the better part of 4 years lying through your teeth without being held accountable by the gatekeepers in the MSM. Chances are this Churchill bust thing won’t register to the general public either.

There’s no downside.

Gravity is still working - just send in your quarterly and don’t forget to add me to your will. ;-)

I got my first “jolt” in a long time recently working on a Hunter fan/light remote switch recently. Breaker, test breaker, test, test, oops!

Just the usual “buzz” - household voltage (125V) - absent standing in water I don’t know how people actually get electrocuted. And no the breaker didn’t pop. Sigh. *;-)

My last zap was 10 years ago. A high-po automotive ignition (MSD-6 Digital). Which puts out a metric ton of voltage. I am not sure what happened and I really try to forget about it. But I promise you that it sucks in very artful ways. And it hurt. A lot.

Some of us don’t appreciate being called liars by liars. Personally, I’m funny that way. And more than a few of us are capable of arguing more than one point at a time, so I don’t see it as a “distraction.”

My father was in Electrical Contracting, and I worked with him long enough to get a few pokes of 277 VAC. I decided then and there I *really hate* shocks and would not be following in his footsteps. Ironically, I ultimately landed in a R & D department of a semiconductor company working with >1,000 VDC.

Its as simple as that.
