WH Is Trying to Rewrite Recent History Now? Says Obama Didn’t Return Churchill Bust?!


Good grief…We all know he did. It was huge news at the time – it was seen by many as a petty slap at the British, who of course, adore the man. Who doesn’t?

And now it’s an election year, so we have to stamp out narratives that don’t help Dear Leader.

White House “Fact Checker”, Dan Pfeiffer, reporting for duty!:

Lately, there’s been a rumor swirling around about the current location of the bust of Winston Churchill. Some have claimed that President Obama removed the bust of Winston Churchill from the Oval Office and sent it back to the British Embassy.

Now, normally we wouldn’t address a rumor that’s so patently false, but just this morning the Washington Post’s Charles Krauthammer repeated this ridiculous claim in his column.  He said President Obama “started his Presidency by returning to the British Embassy the bust of Winston Churchill that had graced the Oval Office.”

This is 100% false. The bust still in the White House. In the Residence. Outside the Treaty Room.

News outlets have debunked this claim time and again. First, back in 2010 the National Journal reported that “the Churchill bust was relocated to a prominent spot in the residence to make room for Abraham Lincoln, a figure from whom the first African-American occupant of the Oval Office might well draw inspiration in difficult times.” And just in case anyone forgot, just last year the AP reported that President Obama “replaced the Oval Office fixture with a bust of one of his American heroes, President Abraham Lincoln, and moved the Churchill bust to the White House residence.”

Really?

Is it possible that there were two Churchill busts, and the one that was on loan to George W. Bush was returned when Obama entered office? Yes, I believe it is…

How could “fact checker” , Dan Pfeiffer get this so wrong?

Sir Charles awaits his apology.

    Well, ya know, ND, that if Obhammud or one of his sycophants/minions says something, it’s got to be the gospel truth.

    Doesn’t it?

    And a full three years later to start rebutting this “rumor”? I hardly think so.

    Obama is self imploding. 2012 will be the year that is recognized as when Alter media stood on equal ground with the MSM.
