Kathryn’s confusion is excusable. The way some of Barack Obama’s supporters are talking, it’s just a matter of time.

The response to this idea on Twitter was, shall we say, unenthusiastic.

Perhaps Obama deserves special treatment on the Mountain.

Then again, maybe another location altogether would be more appropriate:

Somewhere, Gutzon Borglum is rolling over in his grave.

Update:

It was just a matter of time: A White House petition to “Place the likeness of President Barack Obama on Mount Rushmore.”

    “That Guy” doesn’t need to be on Mt. Rushmore. He needs More #Rush (Limbaugh). Like he has listened EVAH!

  • peteee363

    if reagan didn’t make rushmore, no way obama does. i did rename a object in my home after him though. as a matter of fact, i just flushed the barak a few minutes ago!

  • RIChris

    If Obama is put on Mt. Rushmore, won’t he just find his way back down, defeating the purpose of putting him there in the first place?

  • WilliamAmos

    Don’t they mean putting Obama on Mt. Doom ? The one to rule them all ?

    • MJ Pauls

      IN Mount Doom.

    Closer to home, Dems plan to pry Abe from the chair in the Lincoln Memorial and replace him with Obama with his feet up on the Resolute Desk. Why wait?

    • meeester

      good one!
      Someone should be able to make simulated bronze Obama masks that could be ut on EVERY statue.
      We’re so lucky he allows himself to be our ruler.

    Why don’t we just throw his scrawny azz into Mt. St. Helens instead????

    OH.MY.GAWD!!! sharpton is such a ________ !!!!!

  • Purple State

    Wasn’t Gutzon Borglum a member of the KKK? So, yeah, he probably is rolling in his grave over this suggestion.

  • Catchance

    Could we make out of papier mache? With him inside it?

  • Guest

    OH HELL NO! Pres. Reagan is more deserving than Pres. Obama. Pres. Obama popularity is lower than Pres. Carter. To put Obama on Mt. Rushmore is sacrilege and abomination to the founders of our nation. I will fight to stop this. These damn liberals and Democrats are starting to p*** me off. I hope this just a trial balloon topic.

    I would be okay with Congress appropriating $100 to put Obama’s picture on top of Mount Trashmore, a reused solid waste landfill in Evanston, Illinois. There can be no more appropriate location than that.

    I heard there was no room left on the front so now they’re thinking about putting him in the back

    I’m not sure Obama would want to share the honor with those peons…maybe a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

    Oh, please.

  • detroit19

    Can we start a White House petition to keep him off?

  • madian_kikyou

    Yeah no. we don’t need his ugly mug on mt. Rushmore.

  • Colonel_Bat_Guano

    I’d blow the whole damn thing up before they put that tool up there.

  • meeester

    i like the idea. Go full speed ahead. Add Clinton and Carter too.

  • Kleverabevera

    He needs his own statue. Let’s say, a colossus straddling the national mall. Something we can all gather round and worship!!!

  • thatsitivehadenough

    LOL! How pathetic are Obama supporters? They have their brains up their you-know-whats. Dummies.

    No problem. Simply hang a doggie bag over the edge. This 3-D representation of his legacy would of course include the Obama stench.
