PostSubject: Was Winston Churchill Bust Returned Britain?   Mon 30 Jul 2012, 7:07 am


Yes, Winston Churchill Bust was returned to Britain.

Here is the original news report report of the bust removal from February 14, 2009, written by Tim Shipman at The Telegraph, Barack Obama sends bust of Winston Churchill on its way back to Britain:

A bust of the former prime minister once voted the greatest Briton in history, which was loaned to George W Bush from the Government’s art collection after the September 11 attacks, has now been formally handed back.
The bronze by Sir Jacob Epstein, worth hundreds of thousands of pounds if it were ever sold on the open market, enjoyed pride of place in the Oval Office during President Bush’s tenure.
But when British officials offered to let Mr Obama to hang onto the bust for a further four years, the White House said: “Thanks, but no thanks.”
Diplomats were at first reluctant to discuss the whereabouts of the Churchill bronze, after its ejection from the seat of American power. But the British Embassy in Washington has now confirmed that it sits in the palatial residence of ambassador Sir Nigel Sheinwald, just down the road from Vice President Joe Biden’s official residence. It is not clear whether the ambassador plans to keep it in Washington or send it back to London.


Another mistruth from “the most transparent administration EVER.”............


Dan Pfeiffer, the Obama's communications director, said in a statement that widespread reports of the bust being returned to Britain's embassy in Washington as Mr Obama took office were untrue.

"This is 100 per cent false," Mr Pfeiffer said. "The bust is still in the White House. In the Residence. Outside the Treaty Room". Illustrating his statement with a photograph of Mr Obama inspecting it with David Cameron in 2010, he added: "Hopefully this clears things up a bit and prevents folks from making this ridiculous claim again".

White House admits it did return Winston Churchill bust to Britain
Barack Obama's White House has been forced (by The Daily Telegraph) to admit that it did return a bust of Sir Winston Church

Why the lie? Why not say ...it was on loan... and this is the was the reason it was returned!!! Why??

Many people (that I know) are alive only because it’s illegal to shoot them.

Ronald Reagen said it best.......The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn’t so.

I have always said I don't care what you do or with whom you do it, but don't demand that I think that it is normal or that it is OK!!!!

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity!
