I'm surprised he hasn't already established a full statue monument somewhere to himself. With a bronze plaque full of one syllable words and many exclamation points. MANY! The best!

He probably tried to propose it, but the people he talked to were laughing too hard to reply.

I think to be truly fare you would need to scale the size of their faces relative to how awful they were. Their proposal implies 4 equally bad Presidents. Reality is shaping up to be Trump by a WIDE margin and then 3 guys that were more of the "shouldn't have been given a second term" variety.

Back when I was impressionable and idealistic and had just read a bunch of Edward Abbey's stuff for the first time, I wrote a short story about an eco-terrorist group that used shape charges and plot-device-level geometry skills to turn the faces on Rushmore into Sitting Bull, Black Elk, Chief Joseph, and Geronimo.

Eisenhower is notable for being the last decent republican president. Ironically, Nixon might have had that title instead - given the EPA and Title IX - if he hadn't let his nature as a paranoid, weaselly, power-hungry racist get the better of him.

Washington and Jefferson owned slaves and helped create a nation built on slavery. Not everyone is perfect.

Mt. Rushmore was meant to be an "f.u." to the Sioux Indians.  The Republican version would be an "f.u." to the entire world...

Johnson was impeached for firing his own Secretary of War without congressional approval. I think attempted genocide outweighs that by a considerable margin.

The idea of a Rushmore is repugnant to me. As soon as somebody says, "We'll carve gigantic faces into a mountain," it's some cheezy Planet of the Apes knockoff. Regardless of what I think of the people represented on the mountain.

Mount Rushmore is the very last place I'd visit.
 
2017-07-16 09:55:21 AM  
Hoover should not be on bizzaro Rushmore.
The man was as blindsided by the magnitude as anyone else was by the Great Depression. He did what experts thought was the proper response to a small recession (Keynes didn't write his magnum opus until 1936), and once it was clear of the size of the problem, he initiated several programs that would later be expanded upon by FDR.

Not a great president.
Not a terrible president.
Just one with the bad luck to be in office at the time.

Unless intentionally destroyed, Mt. Rushmore will be the longest lasting sign of human habitation on this planet if we happen to kill ourselves off before we colonize elsewhere. Buildings will either catch on fire or rust away. Vegetation and weathering will slowly hide everything else,

Rushmore is carved into granite in a geologically quiet area. It will last almost 200,000 years in a recognizable state. It will take MILLIONS of years before it is completely rain-eroded away.

For that, I award it a few points.

This is beyond not perfect. This is cruel an inhumane on the level that boggles the mind. What he did in Europe after the war was barbaric on Stalin levels.  And then Korea!! Holy shiat right? Looking Washington was a piece of shiat. He wasn't a slave owner he was the slave owner. Yeah he shouldn't be on the mountain. Jefferson shouldn't be up there either his evil is well documented.  How about we stop destroying mountains for rich dead white monsters of men. Stop telling fairytales about there greatness?
