Terrible -- So if you go to the official White House website you'll find biographies of every president.
But someone in the Obama camp felt something was missing the greatness of their own leader.
According to commentary magazine additions were made to the presidential bios so you can see how Obama has approved.
All -- work for example after Reagan's.
Is a bullet point that said is quote in a June 281985.
Speech Reagan called for a fair tax code.
What were multi millionaire did not have a lower tax rate than his secretary.
Today president Obama's going to the same with the Buffett rule.
Another bullet point compares obamacare to Lyndon Johnson ushering in Medicare and another compares a bomb ending Don't Ask Don't Tell to Truman -- military segregation.
At this point let's just put him up on mount Rushmore next to George Clooney -- the cast of glee and Jersey obamas get any physical therapy for the strained shoulder he gets from patting himself on the back.
And it totally anyway Obama reminds me here but -- the guy at work who signs the birthday card for a co worker without ever chipping in on the gift.
He's the roommate you grabs a slice of pizza we needed to help his pals paint that Dan.
He loves spreading their wealth but -- is -- -- 1% -- with credit.
But I guess that's inevitable when you're the cops an object of celebrity affection -- you get a taste you want at all.
Can -- you were shaking that it got its tip that it's -- Are you just outrage beyond belief mean really what I think they'll play around on Wikipedia or some.
At what is with this and you know editing the file as of other presidents.
It is so self promotional and narcissistic -- it just shows really how -- that administration is they don't get it -- counts.
Against that know what's gonna go good job good job you're number one all right.
That's ridiculous they haven't messaging problem I don't and that's gonna help them let alone with her own base with independents or anything out -- Bob you gotta admit there's a flat on this table right now that -- -- -- -- a this is obviously done by somebody else but you have to admit it is.
Funny this is something you can make fun of about Obama it's about him need need need need need it's always about him.
I would make fun of this excerpt of that spiders coming up to shoulder right now.
The first of all I I will say this I'd probably would not have done this if are them -- that I will all also not have but she didn't include here in your monologue which.
I can understand given your politics.
Is indeed they added on to.
-- Grover Cleveland.
-- -- -- -- Nixon.
Ford now if you got to just make a play for you know greatness.
You've probably would not have been included those people and so I think somebody had probably thought it was a good idea it was not a good idea and the other thing they should've had under -- by the way was it Obama.
Doubled the debt -- triple that.
-- -- Oh please -- -- is what you're you're -- -- the issue which was this is the right side I think that was I think -- was Reagan Reagan -- -- -- was it 200 billion -- now it's sixteen trillion trump says Bob.
No one is no one is is increase the national debt -- Even close no one's close to President Obama disputed which adds it's increased and so on even go there with apple you know this is like -- -- -- President Reagan -- -- the assassination attempt in Al Haig says it's I got this air and hits me you know he was fourth -- -- in presidential chain of command.
And when Al Gore said to Wolf Blitzer.
I would say invented you know I took the initiative to invent the Internet and maybe not so right -- there's a thing and yes this is a gate we we've done this.
But a couple times about how humorous Saturday that live.
Jon -- have problems grasping.
-- whatever they can't about Obama that makes people laugh.
Do you think they're gonna cover this I mean what are you shouldn't isn't this beautiful beautiful like.
Meet for their for their machine I think that they are you did in fact read -- that's -- -- last -- as he was talking about it he almost burst out laughing because.
There were some really good funny things ended up on Twitter Rory Cooper and Heritage Foundation.
I've found is when he was doing some reactions like -- second.
Doesn't sound right I don't understand is don't realize that it White House that.
Academia is going to do this for them via -- textbooks will be written an X -- as -- President Obama will be written and I just glad that there are some funny things that the Republicans get a sense of humor activities can and RNC these are photographs.
That you hadn't heard about yet this was on some that the White House has been working on -- that President Obama is that.
That that signing of that accident and then it seemed to be had another line yes the man -- at -- and and they would be exploits there is something Manning actually happened I -- I got a serious -- I was coming at the White House has too much time on the hands -- this is taxpayer money pays for the salaries for people that are actually going back and doing this type of thing.
And you wonder why they can't dealing with somebody who are the ones stern.
Is it is Obama does enjoy a great deal of people have a positive image of him he's very closer this -- -- -- grabbing hold.
And you got -- you've got to think through this right now that what the Republicans are gonna pushes his line about him being arrogant and you don't feed the briefs I mean it's it's -- -- It's sad I think man I tell you -- you're not you do your popular president.
In a delicate job but you're probably -- don't -- -- -- in the whole life you can't -- -- how awesome pass this mail I got that we had I know people like this you've worked with people like this you pass a big like it's not enough they would be -- want acceptance they want approval they want love looking at it public and yet I'm looking young -- you right now stop looking.
