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

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.”

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.
