OBAMA TRYING TO REWRITE HISTORY OF PRESIDENTIAL BIOS
Now this ego has taken the site to a new low as he has authorized changing most of the 20th Century Presidential bios on the site to make comparisons to Obama and several past Presidents and try and deceive the public into believing that many of his policy moves are similar if not extensions of those by past occupants of The White House.
For example he has compared FDR instituting Social Security with the Obama propaganda that only HE is trying to save Social Security for future generations. Yet in his more than three years in office with the full knowledge that the program will soon go bankrupt and is in desperate need of overhaul, has not offered ONE idea for the overhaul or a means of , "saving," the program from it's obvious future demise.
Another example comes form the bio of President Reagan who called for a change in the tax rates to make them fair. Reagan's fair change, changed the tax rates, lowering them across the board REDUCING taxes which spurred a massive economic growth as people had more money in their pockets. But the Obama revision of Presidential history to stroke his own ego is comparing Reagan's call to change the tax rates to make them more fair by reducing taxes to Obama's call for passage of the, "Buffet Rule, " which raises taxes on those who make over 200K a policy that Reagan would NEVER have even considered.
He also compares Truman's call for Civil Rights legislation to his reversal of, "don't ask, don't tell." He compares Carter's creating of the Energy Department to his supposed, "all of the above," energy policy. In a blatant attempt to connect his administration to the Kennedy administration, Obama compares his decision to decree a Presidential proclamation recognizing the Peace Corps to Kennedy's actual CREATION of the Peace Corps.
The only link to a past President that Obama uses which actually makes a little sense is his comparison of Obamacare to LBJ's institution of Medicare. Yet even in that he claims that he is saving the program by Obamacare when in fact his law guts Medicare and forces seniors to drop most of their Medicare coverage to take part in Obamacare.
The only Presidential bio he has not revised after Calvin Coolidge is that of Gerald Ford's. I guess Obama doesn't see Ford as, "worthy," of his revisionist blessing and not good enough to be compared to the great Obama. History is history and historical fact does not change unless it is as an ego boost to the arrogant one who obviously believes that he is the greatest President and all others paved the way for him to be the savior of all American kind. Excuse me while I go throw up for even writing that last sentence!
