Rains wash away Mount Obama in Charlotte, N.C
Washington Times ^ | 9/1/2012 | Stephan Dinan

Posted on 09/01/2012 2:17:49 PM PDT by KansasGirl

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A torrential downpour that struck Charlotte Saturday afternoon damaged the Mount Rushmore-style sand sculpture bust of President Obama — an ominous beginning to what many fear is a plagued convention.

Workers were trying Saturday afternoon to reform the base of the sculpture, built from sand brought in from Myrtle Beach, S.C., pounding and smoothing out the sand that had washed off the facade.

Oh, the irony! It kind of sums up Obama’s whole presidency, doesn’t it?

The original one they were constructing was the DNC logo — but cancelled that one — they said “for security reasons” — on Friday — guess Clint did get under his skin on Thursday night.

I had a vision of a “Mount Blamemore” with both Obamas, Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton. Of course, it would be the back of Joe’s head as he is always going the wrong way.

Obama can go pound sand.

If they wanted to be accurate when they built this absurd bust, they should have built it out of bull crap.

That’s just so horrible in so many ways. It’s so bad that it could almost be a gift from the GOP. It would be great if the workers were wearing Romney T-shirts.

I find it absolutely sickening, that in this country, in this day and age, so many people would succumb to a cult of personality, like Obama. The fact that his Image is being used like that, when I visited 2nd world sh*tholes around the world, thats how campaigns were waged, with images of the person. I dont recall the last time a persons image was used to such an extent here.. maybe I am wrong, but I get that sick feeling that my country is going down that route.
