Obama hacks White House biographies, inserts himself into the past....

No, that title is not a joke.  But it is as sick as it sounds.

Believing his own side's endless rants about the stupidity of the average American, Obama has gone back and altered the official biographies of multiple presidents to include himself in their actions, figuring no one would know any better:

The Heritage Foundation’s Rory Cooper tweeted that Obama had casually dropped his own name into Ronald Reagan’s official biography on www.whitehouse.gov, claiming credit for taking up the mantle of Reagan’s tax reform advocacy with his “Buffett Rule” gimmick. 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)

Some examples below. As embarrassing as a Rocky & Bullwinkle cartoon, or a North Korean news dispatch:

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.

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. 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.

The last one is somewhere between a sacrilege and a desecration.  Claiming Reagan would support a wealth confiscation scam, while inserting the bullshit story about Buffet's secretary, is blasphemous, especially coming as it is from the office of the president.

Is he trying to disguise himself as a mainstream president here, claiming his radical agenda is a mere minor extension of the policies of previous presidents?  Or is he so desperate to create a legacy for himself that he needs to alter history in an attempt to show that anything a great president has done, he can do better?

Or are there darker machinations at work here?  Perhaps he has decided that it is time we understood that  there was, is, and always will be....Barack Hussein Obama.

And we'd better get used to it...
