So the White House apparently updated a number of presidential biographies hosted on their site to include tidbits about how that president's policy/actions can be related to Obama.

For instance, the following line was added to the official bio of the late President Ronald Reagan: "In a June 28, 1985, speech, Reagan called for a fairer tax code, one where a multimillionaire did not have a lower tax rate than his secretary. Today, President Obama is calling for the same with the Buffett Rule."

All bios have been edited except for Gerald Ford. You can find these bios here.

Do you think these edits are a good idea?
Why might President Ford have been skipped over?

The response from the Republican National Committee was to launch the website:
http://obamainhistory.tumblr.com/
Where images of obama have been photoshopped into iconic historic images.
What do you think of such a response/the site?
