    Hey… whatever it takes to further denigrate the heritage of the United States.

    What a shame, those who are too ignorant to see that naming the mountain after McKinley in the first place was the true denigration of American heritage. Likewise the very construction of Mount Rushmore itself, a testimate to the fascism and racism of America. You want satire? You want real satire? You missed the BIG one Varvel. How about the Obama International (formerly known as REAGAN) Airport. Try that one on for size. We need an airport named after a real leader, a man who represents America. Not some half-assed, washed out actor who catered to the rich and DENIGRATED American heritage.

    @Dypak

    Your ‘real’ leader who began his political career with terrorists? The one who has set race relations back 50 years in this country?
    -
    Do you mean the one who spoke of 57 states while vowing to stand with Muslims whatever may come?
    -
    Or the one who is considered the worst president since WWII (Google it) and had zero qualifications for the office, other than being an instigating community organizer?
    -
    The one who praises murderous thugs as his sons? THAT one?
    -
    LMAO!!!!! This is why liberalism is considered a dirty word these days.

    When you chose to hate someone you become blind to what is really going on. Read a little about the region.

    I understand why it was renamed- the point still stands. The Emperor with No Clothes and his handlers are all about minimizing the heritage and history of the United States.
    -
    Why don’t we rename all our states and cities to whatever they were called before the U.S. was formed as well? That would also be something on which 0bama would happily waste taxpayers’ money!

    Dypak; After all you accusations in you post you did not say, how Rushmore is a testament to fascism and Racism. Lincoln is on it, he signed the Declaration of Emancipation. Or how naming a mountain after a President degrades American heritage.
    .
    What does degrade the heritage of America is a President deciding by himself to rename the Mountain when there was a 1917 law naming it and President Obama does it with an executive decision. Law by decree that is what Fascism always become. Also, if you get a dictionary Fascism is a Strong central government under the control of a Dictator.

    Oh and Lincoln then led a war to enforce it.

    Shouldn’t the sign say “Mt. Denali, formerly known as Mt. McKinley, formerly known as Mt. Denali”?

    Somehow I don’t remember these conservatives having a fit when National Airport was renamed Reagan Airport. Where’s their respect for the Nation?
    .
    Conservatives’ entire worldview is seen through a partisan lens. If and when Obama tries to name something after himself, you’ll have a talking point; but that would never happen, because Obama is not the demon that this cartoonist is trying so desperately to make him.
    .
    Trump, on the other hand, names EVERYTHING after himself, and that’s not an issue to conservatives, because after all, he’s one of the the boys so that’s understandable.

    Wasn’t Denali the real name of that mountain?

    True enough. But what Republican would miss a chance to denigrate Obama?

    Yes. McKinley never went there, It was an Ohio delegation who pushed the name change through Congress around 1917 or so to honor its “favorite son.” Pure politics. People in Alaska generally refer to it’s original name. And that’s all Obama is doing: restoring its original name.

    Formerly known as: That big mountain in the far north of the continent in a place later known as Alaska.

    @libsmasher

    You mean Reagan who praised the dead of the dreaded SS in W. Germany as victims?


    Who thought his greatest movie role was as president of the USA?


    What I get are jeo citizen’s views not historians on “worst” president which isn’t the same. And it just doesn’t track. How is Obama worse than GWB unless it is acting like a Republican then I would agree. He is better than GWB as a Republican president.
