The city of Chicago on Thursday announced plans for construction of a $60-million selective-enrollment high school that would be named for President Obama.

The 1,200-student Barack Obama College Preparatory High School would be built in Stanton Park, blocks away from the former site of the notorious Cabrini-Green housing project, according to the Chicago Tribune. 

The project was announced by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who served as the president's first chief of staff.

The White House has placed an emphasis on redesigning high school curriculum to focus more on math and science, and better preparing students for expanding career fields.

Liberals who make up awards to give each other now name things for other liberals to make them look better than they really are, even before they're dead.

Obammy got a Nobel peace prize for doing absolutely nothing, why not name a school after him that will do.... absolutely nothing?

I was an elected member of a legislative body. Historically, this body had named government buildings and forest preserves after both dead and living politicians.

When a preserve was named after a still-breathing former forest preserve commissioner and he later ended up in a federal Graybar Hotel, legislation was quickly drawn up and passed to name any piece of land or building after those who had already shuffled off this mortal coil.

You can bet that at some time in the future the above school will, out of necessity, change it's name from Barack Obama to George Washington or George Washington Carver, depending on the location.

How many schools do we now have named The Barack HUSSEIN Obama ___________ School? How many do we actually need? Naming schools after the most incompetent and most corrupt, racist president this country has ever seen seems like something only a bunch of drooling, bedwetting morons would do. IMHO.
