President Obama added to bios of other Presidents on White House website
I truly this was bogus. Then I started looking, beginning with President Bush since that one would make sense. Here is where you go: http://www.whitehouse.gov/about/presidents Surprisingly I didn't find President Obama in the Bush bio, it's in the "Did You Know" section where I found this: 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. No surprises then to see Obama tagged in the Clinton 'Did You Know': Continuing his work as a lifelong public service, Clinton created the Clinton Foundation in 2001 to improve global health, education, economies and environments. Affectionately calling him “Do-Gooder-in-Chief”, President Obama has worked with Clinton to make buildings in our country more efficient—announcing a $4 billion investment in energy efficiency upgrades for commercial buildings.' So, I moved on to George H. Bush - what could Obama add? President Barack Obama awarded George H.W. Bush the 2010 Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor, for his commitment to service and ability to inspire volunteerism throughout the country... Seriously? Propaganda? Hard to not see it that way when you see Ronald Reagan's: 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.
