All about me: Obama ‘stealing Reagan’s glory’

Barack Obama has been accused of “vandalizing” the presidential biographies posted on the official White House website by injecting his own personal agenda into the details of what past leaders accomplished.

On the page with Ronald Reagan’s biography, for example, it states: “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.”

Then Obama has added, “Today, President Obama is calling for the same with the Buffett Rule.”

“This is a truly disgraceful behavior,” wrote Examiner Senior Editorial Writer Philip Klein.

“Put aside the fact that what Reagan was proposing in 1985 had nothing to do with the Buffett Rule. Obama should not vandalize his predecessors’ biographies to promote his own agenda,” he wrote.

“Obviously, as president, Obama can use the tools of the White House to advance his goals. But at the same time, all presidents are to some extent guardians of the institution,” he continued. “Sure, a lot of the White House website is naturally going to be used to promote Obama, but there are some areas that should be considered neutral ground – one of them being the history sections.

“I’m sure that during the Social Security debate in 2005, if President Bush had updated the biographical page to say that he was trying to preserve FDR’s original vision for Social Security, liberals would have been up in arms.”

Seth Mandel at Commentary Magazine has assembled a list of some of the citations added by Obama:

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.

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.

President Lyndon Johnson signed Medicare signed (sic) into law in 1965 – providing millions of elderly health care stability. President Obama’s historic health care reform law, the Affordable Care Act, strengthens Medicare, offers eligible seniors a range of preventive services with no cost-sharing, and provides discounts on drugs when in the coverage gap known as the “donut hole.”

Wrote Mandel, “The Heritage Foundation’s Rory Cooper tweeted the Obama had casually dropped his own name into Ronald Reagan’s biography on http://www.whitehouse.gov, claiming credit for taking up the mantle of Regan’s tax reform advocacy with his ‘Buffett Rule’ gimmick. My first thought was, he must be joking.

“But he wasn’t…”…………………….

    Reblogged this on Liberalism is Trust Fucked with Prudence. Conservatism is Distrust Tainted with Fear and commented:
    QUIT FUCKING NEWS. GG!
    Obama ‘stealing Reagan’s glory’ are you kidding? Reagan died figuring out if Nebraska is in Africa or Antarctica. Reagan son confessed that his father was dyslexic.
    Here’s the deal… Republican Dan Sullivan Wins Senate Race in Alaska
    USA needs badly dumb people to maintain the Republican Status Quo.
    a Greasy Israeli clitoris called Debbie Wasserman Schultz successfully managed to lead DNC to get Obama second term. Now it’s time to get Hillary elected Potus. See what I mean.
    The reason the democrats lost because they’re too fat to fight, too lazy to hit streets and they ain’t any worthwhile war to rage. It’s the same ol’ boring National Debt, Obamacare and Baghdadi. It ain’t worth it. Give it to Republicans to fuck it.
    Come on girls. Joseph Smith is a real gentleman and scholar he followed the nature calls. He made his phallus so happy that Mitt Romney became Mormon. Glenn Beck strangled his dad to death to join Joe the Mormon.
    The Honigga clitoris is right. Obama fucked America for 6 years to please the Republicans Endangered Rednecks Dinosaurs’ Species. Now he’s on his own to crush ‘em or impeached.
