'If Teddy Roosevelt is the measure, I think it strengthens the case for President Obama'
Al Sharpton aired a segment concerning a recent National Journal article which analyzed President Obamas chances of attaining a coveted spot on Mt. Rushmore Friday evening on MSNBC. Teddy Roosevelts presence on the landmark garnered particular attention from Sharpton, who expressed his opinion that Roosevelts thin resume as a transformative president strengthens the case for Obama to be included:
ABBY HUNTSMAN: You look at Reagan, he ended the Cold War. I think they have to have a legacy that changed America. Obama was the first black president. That is something that will always be remembered.
AL SHARPTON: And he stopped two wars and the whole question of finance reform on Wall Street and health care. I mean, he has done some concrete things. I can, again, the reason I raised Teddy Roosevelt is that a lot of people could say that Teddy Roosevelt was more of a character than a transformative president. I can name, literally, things that President Obama has done. Now, Im going to say that if Teddy Roosevelt is the measure, I think it strengthens the case for President Obama.
Teddy Roosevelt is credited with accomplishments such as completing the Panama Canal and establishing the National Parks system. Historians typically rank Roosevelt among the top five greatest presidents.
You Right Wing Nuts are a bunch of bigots if you don't agree with me about immortalizing the Wee Wee!
Note: There's a video embedded in the original article if you can stand it.
When Barack Obama took office, the USA was a global power and by the time he leaves office, the USA may be a regional power again.
This needs a Super Barf Projectile spew!
I’m already disgusted with the fact that a MLK statue is in DC in an area reserved for Presidents.
It would be a hoot watching some idiots trying to put Barack the Kenyan on Mr. Rushmore. I’d sell my house here in Arizona and buy a house as close to Rushmore as I could get. I’d then pick up an industrial strength popcorn popper. I wouldn’t want to miss one minute of that circus. LOL! Sorry Al. Mt. Rushmore is reserved for Americans.
I’m all for it as long as he’s on his knees shining the shoes of Ronald Reagan.
I’m sure the Republicans will rubber-stamp it. Consider it done.
Zero can be on Mt Rushmore is Sharpton does the carving. Somehow I want to see him busy for a few decades busting rock
OTOH. They still haven’t finished the south end of Crazy Horse’s northbound horse yet. There’s some space there.
Is there enough rock/room for such a big head?
They will never be able to finish the work.
Aside from the absolute obscenity of the suggestion and of the odious maggot proposing it, there’s simply no room on that rock for the half-breed’s jughead ears.
It would prove interesting to put up a pool to see how long it lasted.
Obama’s picture should be memorialised in the same places Jane Fonda is memorialised, as a urinal target.
If Obama is the measure why not put Fiddy Cent up there?
Brokeback Mountain, maybe.
Here I am on top of Mt Rushmore ... jack hammer in hand ....
How long before the vibration cracks this many times repaired and supported monument to some really great men of honor, strength and patriotiuc character ... something(s) o'zero has never posessed?
Do I really want to ride this rubble down a thousand feet ?
Will obamacare fix me up good as new ?
What am I, an asshole ?
phuque you zero ... carve your OWN phuquin' face in a crumbling mountain
The old man of the mountains
KEEPING HIM THERE
Is Al Sharpton able to manage 1st grade level grammar?
Yeah. Lets dynamite Abe Lincoln and put up President Unprecedented Pretentiousness.
That’s a great idea.
And maybe we could carve the clenis’ curly-q dork on George Washingon’s forehead.
First they need to blast off the statues of those racist honkies. /s
The only thing worse than a white fool is a black fisheyed fool. Time man of the year twice, nobel peace prize and now MtRushmore. Forcing the people into believing we have a legend on our hands. I say give him his statue! Ina town overrun by pigeons so they can sh## on him for eternity
Obama has surpassed JFK as the Dems beau ideal.
Camelot is already taken. Look for them to find some similar mystic aura to place around Obama.
[And ‘we’ thought those styrofoam Greek columns in 2008 were fake.]
It will be blown up within days after the last chisel stroke.
Obama needs a mountain all to his own - Mt Barfmore.
I’d rather see it destroyed, than allow that POS’s face to be put there.
That would take an immense amount of money, and harm the environment.
Perhaps a Sharpie drawing on the wall of the mens room at an I-80 Rest Area in Illinois would be more in line.
Well, the Taliban are into blowing up statues and Obama does seem to have an affinity for them...
is sharpton suggesting the demise of Obie, I thought presidents had to be dead before they are memorialized?
He has the same qualifications he did the day he won the Nobel Peace Prize from a box of Cracker Jacks.
How about a life size statue made out of bovine excrement?
Eco-friendly and recyclable to boot!!
Only in America can an absolute idiot like Al Sharpton be given the chances in life that he doesn’t deserve and be a media presence as well. These are the type of people the establishment GOP wants to find common ground with?
Upon Arrival it will be hauled into position at the top Mount Rushmore.
Skilled artisans will then begin the long task of carving likenesses of our
beloved 44th President, Barack Obama, and First Lady Michelle Obama.
Sharptown might as well suggest taking Lincoln out of the Lincoln Memorial and put a giant Obama in the seat instead.
They will have to provide 24/7 SS protection to that statue.
..needs a whole new mountain
What they can do is make a similar sculpture on a man made mountain.
Believe the one in Norfolk/Virginia Beach area is called Mount Trashmore, a mountain formed out of a landfill.
We can get some artist like Crisco to form a sculpture out of the garbage, a fitting monument to BO and maybe, in honor of both, add Jesse J and Al S to flank BO....
Of course BO fans will liken it to Jesus’ crucifixion, and once they do that we will be able to say complete with being flanked by two thieves
“Is there enough rock/room for such a big head?”
head yes EARS No way.
I have to agree with Empireoftheatom48. Your title should have been “Al Sharpton (Super Barf Warning Don’t Click on this link - No really, I mean it)”.
Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood beat us to it.
Al Sharpton owes his “career” longevity to his protected-class status.
Sure...we can put him on the backside as the butt.
How about Mt. Douchemore?
0bama is ready for Mount Olympus.
Mt. Rushmore??? heck I figure they will erect a 275 ft tall italian marble sculpture of the one right at the end of the reflecting pool in the District of Criminals. after he retires from office in 2030!
Maybe something easier , a smaller project .. maybe he should be on a postage stamp or a coin...
