So Obama's been caught editing the bios of former presidents on whitehouse.gov. A couple of days ago I found possible evidence that Obama was literally making those edits himself.
And today we've uncovered further evidence, picked up by Jim Geraghty. This time, it appears we've found an edit he is working on that hasn't been released yet. To date, the edits cover all of the presidents (except Gerald Ford) back to Calvin Coolidge. In this photo, we see Obama working on Rutherford B. Hayes:
Wait. President Hayes? Hasn't Obama brought up Hayes on the campaign trail? Oh, right, he has.
Yike. The Washington Post gave him four pinnochios for that one.
One of my predecessors, Rutherford B. Hayes, reportedly said about the telephone, ‘It’s a great invention, but who would ever want to use one?’ That's why he's not on Mount Rushmore because he’s looking backwards. He’s not looking forwards.
Let's zoom in and see what the edit Obama is making actually says:
Oh, right. Not surprising.
