White House: Hey, We Still Have That Winston Churchill Bust (Or Do We?) The latest bit of Tom Foolery coming from the Obama campaign of desperation. Seems like the three card Monte dealer is trying to pull a fast one. Turns out the bust was sent back, there were two. I don't even care if Obama sent it back, but to try and fool the public is something that should bother us all. Washington Times: So presumably it was no accident that one of the new presidents first gestures was to have a bust of Winston Churchill given to the United States by the British government removed from the Oval Office. The Telegraph: A bust of the former prime minister once voted the greatest Briton in history, which was loaned to George W Bush from the Governments art collection after the September 11 attacks, has now been formally handed back. The Daily Beast: the White House sent back to the British Embassy a bust of Sir Winston Churchill that had occupied a cherished spot in President Bushs Oval Office. The Washington Post: The murmurs began when President Obama returned to the British Embassy the Winston Churchill bust that had been displayed in the Oval Office since Tony Blair lent it to George W. Bush. Tampa Bay Times: Churchills bronze is now in the possession of the British ambassador to the United States, Sir Nigel Sheinwald.
