Think It Over Thursday – 10.25.12

(By YetiVedder)

It is election time and I figured I would keep this week’s T.I.O.T. a little bit presidential for all y’all.   Mt. Rushmore is one of the most famous memorials in the U.S.  You often hear about adding another president’s dome piece to this famed sculpture.  Whether it be because of political beliefs or just to get a conversation going.  It really is a great way to spark a debate.  Everyone has their favorite president and reasons they believe that person belongs on a Mt. Rushmore.  Here are a few names that I have heard:

Barack Obama –  Yeah, yeah, yeah…  I know he is the current president and some of you readers might be voting for him or against him, but you have to realize he was a giant step for this country.  50 years ago there was no way an African American could have become the president.  Maybe we add his face due to the progress we have made as a country?   I don’t think that this is a crazy thought at all.

Ronald Reagan –  If it was up to conservative voters this man would have been the king of the U.S.  He made Mr. Gorbachev tear down a wall and some people still believe he was one of the greatest leaders this country has ever had.  Does he win this one for the Gipper?

JFK –  You don’t remember where you were everyday of your life.  If you ask ANYONE where they were when they found out Kennedy had been shot they can tell you a fully detailed story.  He was inspirational not only as a president, but the dude had Jackie as his first lady AND Marilyn Monroe on the side.   ON THE SIDE!!!  Seriously, Kennedy did more for a nation in 2 years then a lot of presidents have done in 8.

FDR –  He was pretty much the King of the U.S.  He held the office the longest and also guided us through World War II.  Can you have 2 Roosevelts on Mt. Rushmore?  Always a possibility.

Bill Clinton –  I have always been a big fan.  I don’t care about his infidelity.  I do care that when he was in charge our country was in a pretty awesome place economically.  It really was a great time in this country.

So who ya got?  Who’s face would you like to hypothetically see up there?  I think John Adams is the Rodney Dangerfield of presidents.  He gets no respect!  I think I would vote for JFK though.  Maybe simply make a Mt. Change and add these 5 presidents to it?   Let me know what you think!

He wants the ladies to think that they may or may not have made love to a giant man last night while feeding him a steak and cheese sandwich!
