White House aplogizes to Charles Krauthammer
Original post made by Gary on Aug 1, 2012
Krauthammer truthfully spoke of the issue recently and the White House immediately said he was wrong. Egg on face for the WH.
Obama should do the right thing and request the return of the Churchill bust to be honorably placed in the Oval Office. This would demonstrate the USA's special relationship with Britain. Mitt Romney has promised to ask for the return of Churchill's bust.

Here we go again--Gary with his fixation over the Churchill bust!!!!
Let's look at the real facts:
"The one that had been in the Oval Office had been lent to Mr. Bush by Tony Blair, then the British prime minister, in July 2001 before a presidential visit to London (not "shortly after 9/11," as Mr. Krauthammer would later write). "
So the bust was a loan not a gift.
"The White House curator's office, he said, cleared out all lent artwork from the Oval Office as Mr. Bush took his leave as a matter of course. That was "not something that President Obama or his administration chose to do," Mr. Pfeiffer wrote."
So both Gary and Krauthammer are lying--the bust was not given back by Obama--it was removed at the end of Bush's presidency as it was a loan.
Of course never let the facts get in the way of some Obama-bashing by serial Obama-basher Gary.
And what else does one expect from an empty suit like Romney--is that really the main issue facing America--the lack of a bust of Churchill in the White House????
Of course if Obama had placed a bust of a foreign leader in the White House, the republican sycophants and their hater-minions would be howling bloody murder.
Hypocrisy of the Garys knows no bounds

THE MOST EARTH SHATTERING NEWS EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!
OMIGAWD! GARY IS SO TOTALLY ON TOP OF IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MOST IMPORTANT THING EVER!!
Let's ignore Romney's no good, very bad foreign trip.
Let's ignore the abortion vote in the House this week.
Let's ignore Romney promising to get back to ABC with a list of years that he paid less than 13% on his millions in income. (hint - it's MOST of them!)
Let's ignore the fact that there are two Churchill busts, one of which is still in the White House.
Let's ignore the fact that Obama keeps a bust of Honest Abe & MLK in the oval office.
Most important to Republicans - keep your eyes focused on drivel like this, so that Mitt can sew up your nomination without you looking under the hood of the trainwreck you have for a candidate - one more month and then you are stuck with him.
Yippee! (for the dems)
Romney is sinking, and every day he doesn't release his tax returns, he sinks some more in the SWING STATES. Gary is going to have serious buyers remorse when Mitt's returns come out AFTER the convention.
Look at Romney's slide in the most important states - "Quinnipiac: President Barack Obama hits the magic 50 percent mark against Gov. Mitt Romney among likely voters in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, with wide support for his plan to hike federal income taxes on upper-income voters, according to a Quinnipiac University/ CBS News/New York Times Swing State Poll released today. ...no one has won the White House since 1960 without taking at least two of them:
° Florida: Obama edges Romney 51- 45 percent;
° Ohio: Obama over Romney by a slim 50 - 44 percent;
° Pennsylvania: Obama tops Romney 53 - 42 percent."
Obama's lead in two of them is equal to or greater than the combined MOE and the undecides combined.
Better find a new candidate Gary.
Or keep talking about Churchill for four more years.
Keep letting Fox news distract you for another 30 days and you are stuck with the worst candidate ever!
Keep ignoring reality, Gary, and you are going to be really depressed in November - Romney wins the popular by about a half million, loses the electoral by 60+ votes.
All because you nominated a fraud without the good sense to demand that you see his returns before you nominate him!
How dumb is that?

Your ire is misplaced, ol buddy. I have it on good authority that there is no bust whatsoever of Ronald Reagan at 10 Downing Street. Sic 'em, boy.
