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.
The "non" and cartoon is sitting in the White House. Obama and his sycophants can lie from anywhere on any subject.
They lie about big things and lie about the little things just as well. They lie about everything.
Inquisitive press corps?
It was reported by SpewsWeak 4 weeks after the inauguration. Here it is:

Has America's even- tempered new president already ruffled feathers in the land that spawned Borat and Benny Hill? That's certainly how the spiky British press responded after the White House sent back to the British Embassy a bust of Sir Winston Churchill that had occupied a cherished spot in President Bush's Oval Office. Intended as a symbol of transatlantic solidarity, the bust was a loaner from former British prime minister Tony Blair following the September 11 attacks. A bust of Abraham LincolnObama's historical heronow sits in its place. A White House spokesperson says the Churchill bust was removed before Obama's inauguration as part of the usual changeover operations, adding that every president puts his own stamp on the Oval Office.

As we see here, the Commies from Newsweek who reported it, and which was on Obama's orders to have the bust of Winston Churchill removed before he took up residence.
It's a very real lesson.
If, as I expect, your rendition is accurate, it is clear proof that the current resident's first impulse is to LIE.
It is particularly egregious when there is no reason for the lie. The repair, return of a loan, and continued presence of WC's presence on the premises would have stopped the discussion.
We are being ruled by a little kid with huge ears, thin skin, and a knee-jerk need to yell "did not" whenever someone catches him doing just about anything.
For that matter, given his recent comments on successful non civil servants, he's big on "did not" in a lot of situations.
It’s not like there aren’t plenty of other examples besides the bust. The wookie manhandling the Queen, the iPod of Obama speeches, the collection of unusable video discs to a man who can’t see, the plastic marine helicopter from the WH gift shoppe. There are loads of ways this little man has snubbed our cousins.
