Obama Inserts Himself in White House Bios of Past Presidents
Breitbart.com ^ | 5/15/12 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 05/15/2012 12:28:05 PM PDT by ColdOne

The White House website has always featured biographies of past presidents. The biographies are largely designed for students, so they can research the history of the White House occupants; the text is taken from The Presidents of the United States of America, by Michael Beschloss and Hugh Sidey.

Now, however, President Obama has decided that those other presidential biographies weren’t complete without a sentence about him. Seriously. As it turns out, all past presidents are just a window into President Obama’s grand accomplishments. Here are some examples:

President Calvin Coolidge: “On Feb. 22, 1924 Calvin Coolidge became the first president to make a public radio address to the American people. President Coolidge later helped create the Federal Radio Commission, which has now evolved to become the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). President Obama became the first president to hold virtual gatherings and town halls using Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, etc.” The creation of the FCC wasn’t even one of Coolidge’s top ten accomplishments as president. But it allows Obama to brag about how he uses Facebook, so now it’s one of Coolidge’s most important achievements.

President Herbert Hoover: “President Herbert Hoover signed the bill founding the Department of Veterans Affairs July 21, 1930. President Obama is committed to making sure that the VA, the second-largest cabinet department, serves the needs of all veterans and provides a seamless transition from active duty to civilian life, and has directed his Administration to modernize the way health care is delivered and benefits are administered for our nation's veterans. First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill

Dear God , do not let Obama be assasinated , Could you imagine ? His heinous name would be plastered everywhere desensitizing the American people to how they were captured and conquered through a seemingly benign trojan horse !

Far be it from me to defend Obama.................. but:

Those quotes are not from the "Biography" they are from a Post script called "Did you know?"

That is not quite the same as altering the biography itself.

I think this narcissist will not be able to accept defeat in the November election. I wonder what will happen if he barricades himself in the White House and simply refuses to make room there for President Romney?

The Clinton White House launched the nation’s first White House website.

It was partisan political hackwork from day one and Bill Clinton’s profile was used to blame Reagan and Bush for the situation he was in charge of.

The post office also issued stamps depicting things, events, and names from the 20th century while Bill Clinton was president. Some of the stamps were voted on by the public, others were chosen by panel. There was some socialist revisionist history going on there too.

The work of Obamunists does not surprise me.

Payback’s gonna be a bitch when Mitt Romney gets to hold press conferences and sit in on White House discussions as “Office of President Elect” holder Barack Insane 0bama did.

Recall Obama’s temper tantrum when Bush and Congress wouldn’t go along with the spending agenda after the election.

Then Obama whines about how much money Bush spent that HE ASKED FOR.

“What can be written can also be erased.”

Even better, the word Obama should be deleted from every mention in the White House...like he never existed...never to be uttered again.

Instead of a portrait of him lined up with the other presidents, a picture of a huge question mark with a reference to us “not really knowing who this president was as we could not confirm his beginings.”

I remember when he did that, the MSM was just giddy. That was the first sign.

Ozymandias

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desart. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,

Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

That's acutally a pretty good description of Il Douche:

“Did you know?

That FDR signed EO 9066 on Feb. 19, 1942, giving him the power to put all Americans of Japanese descent into internment camps, but that Obama extended that to include all American citizens regardless of ancestry?”

Heh.

So did they decide to leave the earlier presidents alone, or have they just not gotten to them yet?

The "Did You Know" tie in with George W. Bush was boastful like the others, but lame:

In 2002, President George W. Bush’s State of the Union was the first to be live broadcast on the Internet. In 2011 and 2012, President Obama’s State of the Union speeches were available in an enhanced live stream version that featured infographics, charts and data side-by-side in real time with the President’s speech.

Not where they could have gone.

I love that scene from the Ten Commandments but you forgot to insert the drum rolls as the Pharoah pronounces each command:

“Let the name of Obama be stricken from every book and tablet.” (drum roll)

“Stricken from every pylon and obelisk of DC.” (drum roll)

“Let the name of Obama be unheard and unspoken, erased from the memory of man, for all time.” (drum roll)

So let it be written; so let it be done.

It's Chicago-style ghetto grafitti that will need to be removed in 2013. Looks like the community organizer (it's what he knows how to do) insists on organizing everything everywhere besides his own specific community. Six/seven months seems like an eternity with these WH occupants.

Re:

Hummmmmmmmmmmmmmm... In The Ten Commandments didn't Pharaoh pronounce, "So let it be written... so it shall be done."

Whoooooooooooaaa! When any metrosexual man says that... I get chills!

Put those away, Lho. Since The Big O made same-sex marriage the law of the land... I just go for guys--

Just one second, Yul! There are still plenty of us guys... who like Lho to keep shaking those things!

Sorry, Piggy, but we still cannot legally get hitched. Obama only legalized... same-swine marriage.

LOL. Actually I think that should read:

"to include all American citizens related to anyone whose ancestry may have owned slaves"
