President "Look At Me!"

Do you have any clue how insecure you must be, if you keep repeating "look at what I did!"

This guy, this President, has gone into the archives of former presidents on the White House website, and added comments about himself. From what I can see, it starts with our 30th President, Calvin Coolidge, and continues from there.

Here's what was added to Harry Truman:

"In a 1946 letter to the National Urban League, President Truman wrote that the government has "an obligation to see that the civil rights of every citizen are fully and equally protected.” He ended racial segregation in civil service and the armed forces in 1948. Today the Obama Administration continues to strive toward upholding the civil rights of its citizens, repealing  Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, allowing people of all sexual orientations to serve openly in our armed forces."

There's just too much Obama to put on one page, so, they wisely spread him around.

Are shame and humility related? Not in some corners, obviously.

h/t Ace.

Ya, I was reading yesterday that he's appended himself to every entry from Coolidge on (save Ford). He's building his legacy!

Newsbusters has a fun photo up of Obama standing between President Nixon and Elvis Presley.

Still, Obama has some distance to go to match the Nobel Peace Prize committee for undeserved insertion.
