TheDemocrats tweeted an Obama quote to commemorate the “Little Rock Nine”—nine black students who enrolled in a public high school in defiance of then Governor Orval Faubus. They forgot to mention one little detail though.

Yeah, it’s surprising there isn’t a staged picture of Obama at the high school in Little Rock. There must not be any good golf courses in Arkansas.
Have @TheDemocrats become The Audacity of Dopes? Arkansas Governor Orval Faubus, center of the Little Rock Nine controversy was a DEMOCRAT.

Glad @TheDemocrats are finally coming around to the Republican position since it was a Republican who ensured it against the threats of Dems

Hmmm…we must have missed the stories about Republicans using the armed forces to segregate schools.
