The reason he was placed on the bill isn't really known, but if you think that Mr. Obama would be a good replacement for someone being mocked, I would agree.

Really? How many nukes have been removed from Iran? Do you really believe that they've stopped or slowed their research or processing at all?

The only question is whether it'll be New York or Tel Aviv which gets hit first. I'm betting NY because if they hit Israel first, it would be that much harder to smuggle one into the US. They won't strike DC because they want Obama around as long as possible - unless they wait until he's vacationing in Hawaii.

Default Should Obama replace Jackson on the $20 bill?

Obama should replace the flower print, on the toilet paper my wife buys.

Trailer parks and welfare high-rises are already full of little Baracks.

No argument there, although I think we differ on WHY he'll be remembered, and how fondly.

It is change you don't like, but it is lasting change. The country after Obama is gone will be different in fundamental ways from what it was on the day he came into office. Obamacare, alone, will impact almost every person in the country. It will forever change how 1/6 of our GDP is spent. Immigration reform will impact millions today and millions upon millions of descendants of those people for generations to come. Others have tried and others have repeatedly failed in both those arenas. Presidents who manage to accomplish grand things like that are the ones who are judged most kindly by history. The dead presidents on the money and on the mountain are those kind of presidents too.
Did you recently sign up for the same class that LexusNexus took?

Or maybe you got hired by the same propaganda firm?
