Honestly, at some point you have to start thinking of this as a cry for help. What’s next? Funny haircuts and whining on Facebook?
Many of President Obama’s fervent devotees are young enough not to have much memory of the political world before the arrival of The One. Coincidentally, Obama himself feels the same way—and the White House’s official website reflects that.
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).
God, if this is what adolescence looks like from the outside then I will be hating life a decade from now.
PS: I’m going to guess that the Ford exception is because the most significant thing that happened during Ford’s administration is that the Democrats stabbed South Vietnam in the back and left it to the Commies, then promptly tried to forget that Vietnam ever existed (except as an opportunity to create a new victim class). You can imagine that the administration probably would not want to bring that up…
