    Some of the comments at the twitter link made me chuckle

    Narcissists will be narcissists I guess.

    Really though this is beyond pathetic. Imagine for a moment if a President with an (R) next to his name... oh nevermind... I hear that dog-hater Mitt Romney may have bullied another kid 45 years ago and we all no that's worse than molesting children...

    Well fuck it then I'm linking myself to Jimmy Carter. When I was young and in school on my own I ate a lot of peanut butter and drank cheap beer. Made me what I am today yes sir.

    Nobody would've noticed if Fox hadn't made an issue of it. Who goes to the White House website to read Presidential bios?

    You're right, there's no such thing as the internet and social media.

    The Obama White House is the greatest real-life sitcom in the history of man.

    I'm not offended by this, per se. I'm just shaking my head. This is so fucking lame, like Josh_R said. It's just pathetic.

    I once ran for class treasurer. My speech basically listed all my mathematical accomplishments up to that point (which, given I was an Asian kid in a podunk town in PA, was far and away above the average). Later, looking back on that speech, I was and am embarrassed at how full of myself I was (and am, but not in the same way). That's pretty much what President Obama's staff just did to him, here.

    I don't think for a minute that President Obama wasted any of his own time doing this. This is way below his radar horizon. I hope. But it says how fucking pathetic and kiss-ass his people are.

    Can we start on a list of the ego trips by President Obama (and his staff)?

    I'll start:

    iPod with his inaugural speech as a gift to Queen Elizabeth II.
    Rewriting the White House bios of previous presidents to shoehorn him in.

    I'm still convinced that the dog was named after him...and it's not some nickname of Michelle's relative like they claim. I mean, it's a pretty big fuckin coincidence.

    The big one for me though...was this statement:



    He was the guy that was going to end wars and halt the rising oceans, and help the sick, and restore our image overseas. THAT was the moment...didn't exactly pan out that way, huh?

    I love how the "accomplishment" of Bush was that he did something on the Internet. Obama can't even dig up one policy thing to connect with, because he knows his base would have a fucking fit over it. Delusional retards.

    But Bush!!!! In O's defense...he did add graphics.

    I actually find it kind of interesting and informative how a bunch of other president's tied in their 'accomplishments' with past president's actions as kind of a 'see how I am like this guy, only better?'

    Oh wait....

    Obama's a do-nothing suit, cheering from the sideline, when it comes to things like ordering the killing of Osama Bin-Laden, but he's a devious mastermind who plots for months on end, and for whom the buck stops here when it comes to changing around some graphics on a website. It makes perfect sense.
