Hawaii will not be naming an abandoned lot after Barack Obama after all. They won’t name anything after him except for a snow cone.
Since 2009, Hawaii’s politicos have sought to name two schools, an abandoned lot, a scenic overlook and two state holidays after Obama. An effort to put the 1960s-era cinder-block apartment building — where he lived — on the National Historic registry went nowhere, The Washington Post reported.
Obama does have an ice named after him called the “Snowbama”. That’s appropriate since he’s always giving us a snow job.
The Republican who recommended the abandoned lot be named after him has given up because he doesn’t have the will to do it.
Excuses being offered are cost, he’s still president, and it’s not a Hawaiian name.
Another seven-year long proposal is to name Sandy Beach after him. Some said they didn’t want to name the Beach after him because it’s actually a dangerous beach. So is he!
Obama didn’t bother to accept the Island state’s offer to build his library there and that might have ruffled some feathers.
Some are considering a plan to build something at the University of Hawaii’s East-West Center, where Obama’s Marxist mother studied on a fellowship.
The dirt lot has come the closest to actually being named after him. It’s where his birth certificate lists his address.
Shouldn’t that be in Kenya? Just kidding.
Some have tried to revive the bill to name the lot, but state Rep. Gene Ward, who was the original Republican co-sponsor, said he wouldn’t back an effort to revive the bill, offering a long list of reasons.
“Given the way he’s handled the presidency and handled the security of our nation,” Ward said, “I just don’t have the heart for it.
A Democrat won’t give up the dream to name the lot after him and will call it “Barack Obama Birthplace Garden,” if it ever leaves the cutting room floor.
Perhaps they can find a pot farm to name after him in honor of his choom gang.
