This pattern of revision reminds me of the White House website presidential biographies, rewritten and edited to include the not-at-all Great One, Obama. Sure, Reagan would support Buffett Rule!

From Bloomberg:

When the president hopped on a hastily planned conference call intended to push the passage of the Paycheck Fairness Act, he got a key statistic wrong. But that would be corrected for him hours later.
