Barack Obama Is the Most Important President In History!

Eye Roll 34

obama nixonWhen a new president takes the oath of office, he gets to change things up from his predecessor. He gets to pick his own cabinet members and other advisors, he redecorates the Oval Office and his family’s living quarters, and in modern times, he gets to redesign the White House website to suit his tastes. 

Part of this President’s website redesign apparently included Obama inserting himself into the biography of every president since Calvin Coolidge (except Gerald Ford, for some reason). At the end of each section on a particular president in the last 100ish years, there’s now a “Did You Know” section relating some achievement of that predecessor to the current president.

Here’s an example:

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.

(This featured infographics, charts and data side-by-side in real time with the President’s speech.)

Right. Because why mention the war on terror and how President Obama continued President’s Bush’s pursuit of Osama bin Laden to the very end? The Internet is what’s important!

Because conservatives on Twitter love to poke fun of Obama’s shortcomings, the hashtag game #ObamaInHistory was born. Here are some of the best:

@politicalmath: Albert Einstein discovered relativity. But it was Obama who discovered it's political applications. #ObamaInHistory

@BethanyShondark On August 21, 1959 Hawaii became a state of the union so Obama would be eligible to be President. #ObamaInHistory

@DinaFraioli In 1985, Barack Obama finds himself transported back to November 5, 1955 without the plutonium needed for the return trip!! #ObamaInHistory

@LachlanMarkay Prometheus brought fire down from the mountaintop. Obama capped its carbon emissions. #ObamaInHistory

@JonahNRO General Eisenhower invaded Europe. Historians rank this as almost as audacious as Pres. Obama's Bin Laden raid. #ObamaInHistory

@ExJon #ObamaInHistory Abe Lincoln lived in the wilderness, eating locusts & honey. He cried, "make straight the path for the coming of The One!"

@bradcundiff George Washington cut down the cherry tree but Obama was there to catch it. #ObamaInHistory

Seriously, Mr. President … we get that your presidency is historic and all … but it’s the not the culmination of everyone else’s accomplishments. Please check your ego at the door.

When I heard about this, I thought it was a hoax.  It's so obnoxious, and honestly, exactly the sort of self-approving crap I've come to expect from this administration.  You just know he starts his day with some staffers following him around like lap dogs, barking "you da man!  you da man!  you da man!"

Procrast, ROTFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"What's funny to me is that Republicans love to call the Liberals "sheep" when we're not the ones willing to buy the box without knowing what's inside it. Even when we tell them again and again that there are only fear and lies inside that box, not one of them will open it to investigate. They just take the seller at his word and buy (vote for) the box. Boy, but they'll regret that purchase in mere months if Romney gets in! Talk about buyer's remorse! "

Change you can believe in!


Hypocrisy much?

(rhetorical question)

Does the world wants righteousness, or truth and grace? (Romans 10:5) *Lamentations 1:18 The Lord is righteous; for I have rebelled against his commandment: hear, I pray you, all people, and behold my sorrow: my virgins and my young men are gone into captivity. *John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

Your candidate is the guy who originally lost to the guy who lost to Obama! And McCain was leaps and bounds more viable than Mittens even with his choice of running mate. How many weeks and months has Myth Romney been...
