It's election time again, and President Barack Obama has taken his campaigning strategy to a new height (or low) by tinkering with presidential bios on the White House website. Nearly all the biographies of former presidents have been modified to make the current administration look good, but these changes to put Obama on a pedestal could actually backfire.
The changes are more of addendums placed at the end of the bios under the headline, "Did you know?" These little factoids, according to FOX News, constitute "gratuitous references" to Obama and go way too far to promote re-election efforts. For example, Franklin D. Roosevelt's biography now includes this tidbit: "On August 14, 1935, President Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act. Today the Obama administration continues to protect seniors and ensure Social Security will be there for future generations."
It's doubtful Barack Obama personally made the changes to the White House website, but he surely had knowledge that it had been done. It seems the president's staff fears voters have little idea what Obama has actually done while in office and need some reminders. Is this new strategy to uplift the Obama administration truly excessive, as FOX claims?
