President Obama has routinely assumed the personas of former U.S. presidents. In this photo, Obama is channeling an iconic image of John F. Kennedy known as “The Loneliest Job.”
Now the Obama White House has “amended” JFK’s online biography—and the bios of many other of the past century’s U.S. presidents—with a closing “Did You Know?” section in an attempt to link their respective accomplishments to those of President Obama.

The Forrest Gumping of Obama immediately inspired a new Twitter hashtag craze: #ObamaInHistory. Additional visual “evidence” of Obama’s role in key historical events is available at the website Obama In History.
