Obama Graffiti

In a move as classless as graffiti on a nursery school wall, the Obama administration has purposefully defaced the biographies of 13 presidents—every one of them from Calvin Coolidge on except for Gerald Ford. This is truly one of the most blatant, self-aggrandizing acts of this president in the past three years and the American people should demand that these selfish, “look at me” splatterings of territory marking be scrubbed from those presidential biographies immediately.

Some excerpts:

Calvin Coolidge

Did you know?
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 the original defacement, all of the social media sites above are links to Obama’s accounts or stories about him.

Harry S. Truman

Did you know?
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.

(A momentary aside.)Somehow I doubt the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum has anything at all to say about B.H. Obama

Richard M. Nixon

Did you know?
In 1973, Richard Nixon created The President’s Export Council, which was expanded and reconstituted under President Jimmy Carter in 1979. Today the PEC continues to work towards reaching President Obama’s goal of doubling the nation’s exports by 2014’s end.

James Carter

Did you know?
In 1977, President Jimmy Carter created the Department of Energy; today the DOE works with the Obama Administration to drive towards innovation in energy and reducing reliance on foreign oil with an “all of the above” approach.

An aside here is tempting, too, but that would lead to a rather lengthy digression. Let’s just say the "all of the above" is suspect.

Ronald Reagan

(President Reagan merited 2 splotches of Obama graffiti)

Did you know?
President Reagan designated Martin Luther King Jr. Day a national holiday; today the Obama Administration honors this tradition, with the First and Second Families participating in service projects on this day.

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. Today, President Obama is calling for the same with the Buffett Rule.

George W. Bush

Did you know?
In 2002, President George W. Bush’s State of the Union was the first to be live broadcast on the Internet. In 2011 and 2012, President Obama’s State of the Union speeches were available in an enhanced live stream version that featured infographics, charts and data side-by-side in real time with the President’s speech.
