In case you missed it…

The Obama White House has inserted Barack Obama’s name into almost every official presidential biography on the White House website. From George W. Bush to Calvin Coolidge, Commentary reported yesterday how the president casually dropped his name into the biographies of our nation’s past leaders, including Ronald Reagan. You might think Reagan and Obama are polar opposites, but according to the White House website, Obama has up the mantle of Reagan’s tax reform advocacy with his “Buffett Rule” nonsense.

Commentary‘s Seth Mandel writes:

My first thought was, he must be joking. But he wasn’t—it turns out Obama has added bullet points bragging about his own accomplishments to the biographical sketches of every single U.S. president since Calvin Coolidge (except, for some reason, Gerald Ford). Here are a few examples:

  • 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 healthcare 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.”
  • On August 14, 1935, President Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act. Today the Obama administration continues to protect seniors and ensure Social Security will be there for future generations.

Today, the Washington Free Beacon has tinkered around on photoshop to give us a glimpse of the role Obama played in each of the past president’s legacies:

Abraham Lincoln led the Union to victory in the Civil War; though impressive, that feat pales in comparison to the raid of Osama bin Laden’s compound, described by Vice President Joseph Biden as the most audacious military plan of the last 500 years. In this photograph, President Obama photo bombs Lincoln.
