White House Adds Notes About Obama to Presidential Biographies

Critics are blasting the White House from every corner after it was learned the Obama Administration has been ‘editing’ the official government biographies of past Presidents to benefit Obama.

If you log on to the official White House Presidential Biographies, small ‘did you know’ boxes have been added to every president since Calvin Coolidge,  comparing Obama’s ideas and performance to that of previous Presidential accomplishments!  From the Fox News story:

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 says no biographies have been changed, they are merely adding links to each Presidential page, which they say has been done in the past.  However, each of the Obama additions tout things he has done that they believe are positive policy decisions. The additions attempt to link Obama policy ideas to those of Johnson, Kennedy, Truman, Reagan and others.

But conservatives have fired back with a hilarious Twitter hashtag or thread, that lists numerous world events that Obama participated in that you might not know about; such as juxtaposing him with the Beatles at Shea Stadium,  with Einstien, and at Stonehenge.
