“oOh That bust of Winston Churchill, yeah, yeah everyone knew we admired that one and to show our gratitude, we returned it to the British” sarc off

Rotten from the head to the toes. It is going to take some serious cleaning to get the stench out of our WHITE HOUSE.

Can we return Obama's bust to Kenya?

Actually, Kenya can have him back as well.

The amount of misinformation and disinformation on this one story says a lot about the ineptitude of the White House press corp.

One bust was sent back for renovation. The Brits sent another as a loaner to Bush. All art on loan during a Presidency is traditionally returned at the end of the term. The renovated bust was returned to the White House, the Bush loaner returned to the Brits.

This is a non-story that has reached cartoonish proportions. A few facts and details by an inquisitive press corp would have cleared this up years ago.

Anyone who was around in the 1960s and aware of what was going on knows these types.

They are campus radicals -- spoiled brats actually -- who rarely in their lives were held accountable.

Lying means absolutely nothing to them; responding to annoying questions with lies is no different than batting away an annoying fly.

Obama is a biological/ideological issue of 1960s Marxist-Alinsky ideologues and the whole damn administration is occupied by aged 1960s campus spoiled brats and their bratty ideological issue -- and that includes the majority of the MSM.

This whole story proves what freepers are up against. We are information sponges, I would bet that 90% of us remember when this happened originally. Though in the scheme of things, the event itself was no gigantic deal, most of us remember this. In this we are the 1%, we remember this event, yet the administration and the obamamedia knows that 99% of the population has never heard of this, so they feel confident that they can blantantly lie to the american people, and the people will see it as just another lie from those wascally teabaggers...if those teabaggers will lie about this, what won’t they lie about

Compulsive, pathological liars have always scared me silly. Why on earth would you lie about the location of a tangible object? Only someone who is insane could think they could not be exposed.

But even more scary is how the average American has become so complacent in their reaction to compulsive, pathological liars.

Everybody knows you can’t have a bust of Winston Churchill and an Islamic prayer rug in the same room!

A quote from an 1899 book by Winston Churchill, "The River War", in which he describes Muslims he apparently observed during Kitchener's campaign in the Sudan

“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property - either as a child, a wife, or a concubine - must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science - the science against which it had vainly struggled - the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome. “

Yes,but in fairness it does sound (from one of the comments upthread) that the original reports of it being sent back to England, by people on our side, were also misleading: Bush had a loaner while the original 1965 bust was in for repairs; when the original came back and Bush left office, the loaner was sent back. That should have been reported by our side in 2009.

Obama’s crime was to demote the, now restored, original from the Oval Office to the Residence.

I am impressed that Romney got it right—was careful to say, “restored to the Oval Office.” Someone in his staff must have paid attention to the details.

It would behoove us to do the same.

Bingo! The Churchill bust return, "you didn't build that," "spread the wealth around," plus 1000 other comments by Obama and his minions point to their Marxist/Alinsky/socialist/communist roots. What about this do Americans not get? . . November 6, 2012. .
