Talk about delusions of grandeur, the White House website contains biographies of each of the men who held the office of President. Recently the Narcissist-in-Chief decided to embellish each of the biographies beginning with Calvin Coolidge. The embellishment? A mention of a milestone achieved by his most favorite person in the entire world—Barack Obama.
This is what the Coolidge addition looks like:
Did you know?
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.
Silent Cal was a small government president who used budget and tax cuts to create what came to be known as the Coolidge prosperity. He is probably spinning in his grave about being tied to big budget Obama in any way, no matter how benign.
Another fun one is Truman:
Did you know?
In a 1946 letter to the National Urban League, President Truman wrote that the government has “an obligation to see that the civil rights of every citizen are fully and equally protected.” He ended racial segregation in civil service and the armed forces in 1948. Today the Obama Administration continues to strive toward upholding the civil rights of its citizens, repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, allowing people of all sexual orientations to serve openly in our armed forces.
Hey he forgot to mention that progressive hero Woodrow Wilson segregated the military.
Shouldn’t the second half read this way? Today the Obama administration continue to strive toward uphold the civil rights of its citizens (except for people of faith), cops who arrest African-American professors in Cambridge, and Caucasian voters who are intimidated by New Black Panther thugs. He is also the first president to use rac e as a weapon of political intimidation branding anyone who disagrees with him a racist.
He really gets creative with JFK:
Did you know?
President John F. Kennedy famously suggested the American people: “Ask what you can do for your country.” In 1961, the Peace Corps was created, facilitating service among citizens working toward peace in developing countries. In 2011, President Obama celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Peace Corps with a Presidential Proclamation.
Notice anything missing from the Kennedy quote? It began with “Ask not what your country can do for you…” Of course “not asking what your country can do for you” is abhorrent to a progressive like Obama.
Not surprising is that Obama ignored the 20% across the board tax cuts originally proposed by Kennedy, signed by LBJ and resulting in prosperity. (if you cannot see video below please click here)
Somewhere in heaven Ronald Reagan is saying, “Well…there you go again.” As President Obama lies about what Reagan said over a quarter century ago.
Did you know?
In a June 28, 1985 speech Reagan called for a fairer tax code, one where a multi-millionaire did not have a lower tax rate than his secretary. Today, President Obama is calling for the same with the Buffett Rule.
Technically the first sentence was correct. Reagan did call for a fairer tax code, but not by raising taxes on the rich but by simplifying the tax code and lowering tax rates.
With lower personal and corporate rates and
another capital gains tax cut, small and entrepreneurial businesses will
take off. Americans will have an open field to test their dreams and
challenge their imaginations, and the next decade will become known as
the age of opportunity. American industry will benefit, too, because the
billions that are presently being squandered on the loopholes—things
like jojoba bean shelters, racehorse write-offs, windmill farms, and
luxury lunches for business executives-will be reinvested in the
productive economy, where it will build new factories and businesses,
create new jobs, and finance the new inventions that will keep America
number one in the world market.
Read them all but and try to keep a straight face. The White House claims that its all OK because they didn’t change the bios, ignoring the fact that much of the added information was false. The larger issue is that with this president its all about him. HE killed Bin Laden, the military is fighting for HIM. Whatever happened to the concept laid out by Abraham Lincoln in the Gettysburg Address
..this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth
If Obama gets his way it will be:
..this nation, under the government shall have a new birth of freedom — and
that government of Obama by Obama, for Obama, shall not
perish from the earth
