Looks like the White House got "Busted" lying about the bust. The British Ambassador has confirmed that the bust was returned on inauguration day and it currently resides at the Ambassador's quarters awaiting the day Barack Hussein Obama is sent back to Chicago or Kenya.

Where's Vera Baker?

Chicago does not want the Kenyan back as he has given Chi town the worst reputation ever. Where is the birth certificate BO? Where are the college records BO? Shame on the Democrats for allowing the office of the presidency to be usurped. SHAME!

Yes, the Democrat party will have to live with what they did to get elected in 2008. They ran a total incompetent that they thought they could control, but he fooled them. He did as he pleased, and ruined his reputation, and theirs.

Note to Mitt Romney: Abraham Lincoln WAS a Republican.

Why can't both Churchhill and Lincoln be displayed. It's not like there is a shortage of room in the Oval Office.

There could also be a cardboard cutout of a full-size Abraham Lincoln in the Lincoln Bedroom.

The bust was on loan. Well, things loaned have to be returned.
Obama did the right thing.
Churchill was a great war leader, but after the war the British people dumped him.
Do you really think you can lie your way out of Obama's actions.....the White House already got busted trying to do that.

Sending the Churchill Bust back was done within days of the sewearing in. He hated those slave traders. Now he wants us to forget about it. Huh uh He also insulted the Queen. Giving her sonn stupid old movies, and his speeches. How arrogant is that? No, he deserves whatever the Brits want to do to him.

So let me get this straight… these right-wingers who have been running with the narrative that President Obama is un-American have their panties in a wad because Obama moved the Churchill bust to the Treaty Room of the White House and replaced it with a bust of Abraham Lincoln?
More proof that it is the right-wing tea-bagging idiots who are unpatriotic, un-American and bitter idiots who are suffering in their misery of knowing that there is a brilliant and strong Black leader in the Oval Office who single-handedly found and killed Osama bin Laden.
Busted, ya big liar. It was returned to the Brits.

Maybe the Obama White House should wrap up the bust Churchill
along with one of Timothy McVeigh (another hero of the Loony Right)
and send them on down to Bush at the ranch.
What an idiot you are. believe every thing that Gorilla tells you.!

I don't understand why they have to lie about everything. It wasn't done secretly. They made big deal about showing that country that sold slaves. That black man showed them. Now they need the AngloSaxon vote, Oh it was all a big mistake. Well, the joke is on the kenyan.

Yep,

Obama Takes a Risk on Bubba for Bailout With Blue Collar Voters
If President Obama can’t improve his standing with working-class, white voters he is facing a landslide defeat in the fall. And with the stakes so high, the president is again forced to turn to his most dangerous ally: former President Bill Clinton. Will Obama’s failure to back workers by not going to Wisconsin cause a domino effect with voters in other states?

This country was built by the middle class. Americans want to Work. Obama's regulatory policies killed millions of jobs. We cannot continue to take the losses. Gov Romney has been in business. President Obama has been a Community Organizer. He needs to go back to Chicago.
