Skip to comments.White House under fire for adding Obama policy plugs to past presidents' bios

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.

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 ;)”
