'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
