On the White House website you can find biographies of all 44 Presidents of the United States. But did you know that the biographies have been updated with little tidbits about all of the wonderful things President Obama has done since taking office?
It’s actually kind of creepy and disturbing. We paid someone to do this, and when he’s voted out of office we’ll have to pay someone to restore these presidential biographies.
The Heritage Foundation’s Rory Cooper tweeted that Obama had casually dropped his own name into Ronald Reagan’s official biography on www.whitehouse.gov, claiming credit for taking up the mantle of Reagan’s tax reform advocacy with his “Buffett Rule” gimmick.
