MSNBC Debates if Obama Should Be on Mt Rushmore

MSNBC debating whether or not Barack Obama should be on Mount Rushmore is like a bunch of fat kids debating whether or not to eat cake. Just dispense with the formalities and start carving already.

Touré is not willing to put Obama on Mount Rushmore until he is done with his “fundamental transformation” of America, including gun control, immigration reform and gay rights. Touré is willing to get Clinton into the mix, though, “another great American president.”

Abby Huntsman, host and producer of HuffPost Live, agreed with Touré in general that it takes time to know how Obama’s policies will affect Americans in the future (spoiler alert: not good). Huntsman was also willing to bring Reagan back up in the conversation, along with Ike Eisenhower. However, it does seem like the premise that conservatives want Reagan on Mount Rushmore is a bit of a stretch.

    Like it or not idiots, Mt. Rushmore is a work of art, albeit a large one, it is not shelf on which articles are to be placed, and replaced. BTW, the Italians have asked that his gigantic ego stay the hell away from Florence, they rather like their “David”, as it is.

    I think it would be kind of vulgar to have a sculpture of a horses rear end up there.

    I’d say start a 2nd one, beginning with the entire dem’cat lineage starting with Marx, Lenin, Stalin, a crotch (which could cover Kennedy and Clinton) and then Obama
    ……..can just print up a few billion to get r’ done……….it would be like a WPA project, but he could just use welfare recipients “free labor’ to cheapen up the project.

    Are they gong to stake him out where they were going to put the constitution, or just hang him from rosevelts stiff upper lip? If they won’t take him we might get stone mountain to hang him there for all to see. Maybe bury him alive in that mountain that fell when the quarter came out.
