Barack Obama on Mount Rushmore? Maybe if some college professors have their way.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, seeing the face of Barack Obama on Mount Rushmore might stand a chance if the President’s popularity remains high. But the IRS scandal has seen Barack Obama’s approval ratings as President drop below 50 percent.
Polls show that three out of 10 college professors believe Barack Obama’s sculpted face will end up on Mount Rushmore. But they still recommend waiting until Barack Obama is out of office, saying, “History undoubtedly will accord President Obama a special place by virtue of being the first African-American president. It could be that he will be one of the great presidents, worthy of having his likeness carved on a mountain, but certainly not yet.”
The college professors list Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, as Barack Obama’s greatest achievement. There is even a “Campaign to Put President Obama on Mt. Rushmore” Facebook page. But recent comments have been very critical of President Barack Obama, saying things like:
“I agree Obama should be on Rushmore! Hanging from a tree to honor our founding fathers cause i’m sure they would string him up, too.”
“If we’re adding criminals to Mt. Rushmore they better add Nixon then too.”
“I think he should do something good — anything good — for our country before we consider that. I mean, something besides destroying our economy and dismantling the best health care system this world has ever known. Face it: The only reason anyone would back this idiotic idea is because of the color of his skin. And that, my friends, is racism at its worst.”
Do you think Barack Obama should be on Mount Rushmore?
