ABBY HUNTSMAN: You look at Reagan, he ended the Cold War. I think they have to have a legacy that changed America. Obama was the first black president. That is something that will always be remembered.
AL SHARPTON: And he stopped two wars and the whole question of finance reform on Wall Street and health care. I mean, he has done some concrete things. I can, again, the reason I raised Teddy Roosevelt is that a lot of people could say that Teddy Roosevelt was more of a character than a transformative president. I can name, literally, things that President Obama has done. Now, I’m going to say that if Teddy Roosevelt is the measure, I think it strengthens the case for President Obama.
Teddy Roosevelt is credited with accomplishments such as completing the Panama Canal and establishing the National Parks system. Historians typically rank Roosevelt among the top five greatest presidents.
Well ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to point out that president Obama doesn't deserve his face on a normal piece of paper much less Mt. Rushmore. I can't believe they even would consider putting Obama next to any of those patriots on that mountain. It would be kind of hypocritical to put somebody who wishes to destroy the constitution next to either one of the two men who actually helped us acquire our freedoms.
Sharpton is full of it.

Benjamin Franklin? OK. John Wayne? OK. I can't think of anyone else deserving of it. I am sure there are more though. I another note. It would be nice to see it finished as envisioned.

Good thing there isn't any place on Rushmore to put his face, or we would all be in trouble eh? That to me is an absolute INSULT, that he would even consider trashing Mt Rushmore in that fashion. I've nothing against folks of other ethnicities, but this guy's track record speaks for itself. Yes I know presidents do what others tell them to do, but pawn or no, at some point you have to wake up and smell the coffee, no?

When did Obama stop two wars?
Didn't he also start a couple while continuing others?
What planet is Sharpton on?
