Did you know?
President Lyndon Johnson signed Medicare signed into law in 1965—providing millions of elderly healthcare stability. President Obama’s historic health care reform law, the Affordable Care Act, strengthens Medicare, offers eligible seniors a range of preventive services with no cost-sharing, and provides discounts on drugs when in the coverage gap known as the “donut hole.”
Did you know?
President Barack Obama awarded George H.W. Bush the 2010 Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor, for his commitment to service and ability to inspire volunteerism throughout the country, encouraging citizens to be “a thousand points of light.” The administration continues to promote service and civic engagement, honoring heroes of local communities as “Champions of Change” and fostering civic participation.
I don't know if any other president has done the same thing. Do you or anyone else know?
You're right, Obama has done some great things and helped continue good programs, however I don't think it's appropriate to put a plug in for your presidency in a biography detailing past presidents achievements.
Do you feel it's appropriate for the current president to plug his administration while a someone (like a teacher) is trying to research about a past president? What purpose do you feel this will serve?
Wouldn't Obama's achievements be more appropriately placed on his own web site, on the main White House site (since he's the president) or on his own bibliography or is it okay for him to place himself in another man's history?
