BioGate: White House Claims ‘No biographies have been altered’

The pathetic Obama crew brought massive ridicule upon themselves for ridiculously injecting Dear Leader into biographies of past presidents, an act so narcissistic not even Obama Kool-aid drinkers could defend it.

So instead of just removing the offending information and admitting how lame they look, the morons are doubling down.

The Obama White House is drawing ridicule for appending the official online biographies of nearly every president over the last century, in order to link President Barack Obama’s accomplishments to the former commanders-in-chief.

The Obama team went into the pages of US presidents dating back to Calvin Coolidge to add “Did you know?” fact boxes to the end of their bios. Those additions were used to plug a host of Obama administration initiatives.

For instance, the following line was added to the official bio of 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 defended itself, saying, “No biographies have been altered. We simply added links at the bottom of each page to related whitehouse.gov content, which is a commonly used best practice to encourage people to browse more pages on a site.”

Pages, of course, that are all Obama, all the time. Hey, they simply added helpful links, why aren’t people thanking them?

    They had not been altered…. so… did George W Bush’s staff add those paragraphs in when they were leaving… and have time travel tech?

    I knew they could blame Bush!

    If you check the Internet Archive, you’ll see that all of these changes were made after April 2011 and most likely in 2012. 2012, you know, the presidential election year.
