Wisconsin Officials Want To Name
Soviet-Style Building After Obama,
‘JFK Of Our Generation’

Daily Caller, by Eric Owens

Original Article

Local leaders in and around Madison, Wisconsin are seeking to rename the main county government building after former President Barack Obama — “the JFK of our generation.” The seven-story building is currently called the City-County Building. It’s a gray, soul-crushing, Brutalist slab of concrete. Inside the dreary, Soviet apartment-style exterior walls — originally erected in 1956 — are administrative offices and a jail. “Barack Obama was the JFK of our generation,” County Executive Joe Parisi said on Thursday, according to The Capital Times, a Madison newspaper. “He deserves to be honored, and he deserves to be recognized, not only for his accomplishments, but

Comments:
How befitting to name a Soviet style building after the Marxist Obama. Obama deserved to be honored because of his commitment to civil discourse and respect?? Good. Grief. Talk about propaganda. That is really perverse. Sadly and sickly, the adoration of that evil man will continue on for years and years.

Hopefully more thoughtful "officials" will rethink this.

In the meantime I have a problem naming government buildings after anyone. Who do they think they are?

I live in NY, where we´ve had a round of "rename the bridges and tunnels" and managed to rename them all after Democrats.

My favorite renaming is the Tri-Boro bridge that became the RFK bridge - RFK Jr. used to ride over it regularly to buy heroin in Harlem.

Don´t mind Laguardia airport - he actually was a WWI pilot, and did much to bring an airport to NYC.

if they want. but in the long run, same as they are scraping the name of every slavery supporter off every building and school, one day we will do the same with every abortion supporter. I think we will start with Obama, but it is tough: pelosi? durbin? harkin? jesse jackson? the clintons? gore? All their names off everything and any statues pulled down and melted. going to.

JFK would have loved Obama´s cozy relationship with Castro. He´d love his bowing to foreign leaders, his dumping of NASA, his "tax the rich" mantra, his ceding of American leadership and world wide apology tour, his "flexibility" with the Russians, his nuclear deal with Iran, etc.

JFK, no matter how he conducted his personal life, was a proud American. He didn´t hesitate to speak about the opportunities America provided or the possibilities if we set high goals for ourselves. Just the line "Ask not..." is the antithesis of Obama´s philosophy.

Stupid people rewrite history when there are so many left who lived it.

If those saying that Obama is the "JFK of our generation" actually were educated enough to know about JFK, they would know that, compared to Obama and the Democrats today, JFK looks like a conservative.

No picture of the building but the idea is perfect -communist building to honor a communist. As the author said dreary, soul crushing, describes him perfectly. Just tired, old, empty, uninspired ideas ... and most of all, failed ideas, just like the soviet union.

Like the clintons, obama deserves a lot of things, but it doesn´t seem as though anyone is interested in investigating or prosecuting.

Obama had a "commitment to civil discourse and respect" ?? Who knew? He stirred up racial hatred and division for eight years, causing rioting in the streets and attacks on innocent white people.

As for Obama’s eight “totally scandal-free” years, the “style and grace with which he served.” Is there another dimension or reality in which leftists live? Do they need to be re-educated or de-programmed? Unbelievable.

If you feel that strongly about it, go ahead and name the building after the Kenyan/Indonesian fraud. You can engrave his list of accomplishments on the front door knob and make sure you dedicate one of the LGBTQFTH bathrooms after him/her/it.

As James Bond’s nemesis Auric Goldfinger famously observed, “Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence. The third time is enemy action.” On Tuesday evening, three prominent Republicans — Senator John McCain, Senator Marco Rubio, and 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney — endorsed the left-wing media’s preferred narrative and embraced the masked thugs of Antifa as heroes. McCain and Romney used almost identical language, bending their knees to the media narrative that only two factions were present in Charlottesville during the awful events of last weekend: white supremacist Nazis and “Americans standing up to defy hate and bigotry.”

CNN host Wolf Blitzer said Thursday there would be questions if the Barcelona terror attack involving a van crashing into a group of people was a "copycat" of what happened in Charlottesville, Va. At least 13 people were killed and more than 50 were injured in Barcelona on Thursday when men rammed their van into a crowd of pedestrians at Las Ramblas, a popular tourism area in the city in northeastern Spain. The attack came five days after a man with white supremacist group ties was arrested for driving his car into a group of counter-protesters in Charlottesville, killing one

Trump ignited a political firestorm yesterday during an impromptu press conference in which he said there was "blame on both sides" for the tragic events that occurred in Charlottesville over the weekend. Now, the discovery of a craigslist ad posted last Monday, almost a full week before the Charlottesville protests, is raising new questions over whether paid protesters were sourced by a Los Angeles based "public relations firm specializing in innovative events" to serve as agitators in counterprotests.

Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina warned President Trump on Wednesday that his “words are dividing Americans, not healing them” in the wake of the bloody clashes in Virginia that has sparked a national conversation about white supremacists and race. Mr. Graham also vowed that Republicans will “fight back against the idea that the party of Lincoln has a welcome mat out for the David Dukes of the world.” “Through his statements yesterday, President Trump took a step backward by again suggesting there is moral equivalency between the white supremacist neo-Nazis and KKK members who attended the Charlottesville rally and people like

As James Bond’s nemesis Auric Goldfinger famously observed, “Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence. The third time is enemy action.” On Tuesday evening, three prominent Republicans — Senator John McCain, Senator Marco Rubio, and 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney — endorsed the left-wing media’s preferred narrative and embraced the masked thugs of Antifa as heroes. McCain and Romney used almost identical language, bending their knees to the media narrative that only two factions were present in Charlottesville during the awful events of last weekend: white supremacist Nazis and “Americans standing up to defy hate and bigotry.”

NEW YORK- They wash their hands of neo-Nazis and wag their fingers at leftists. They denounce a press corps they see as biased and controversies they view as manufactured. But in the frenzied blame game over the deadly violence at a rally of white supremacists, Donald Trump´s loyal base is happy to absolve the president himself. Even as Trump´s zig-zag response to the weekend bloodshed in Charlottesville, Virginia, has brought criticism from some Republican lawmakers, many men and women who helped put him in office remain unmoved by the latest uproar. "He has done nothing to turn me away from

The Presidency: President Trump´s statements regarding the tragic events in Charlottesville have created a firestorm that, even by the unique Trump-era standards, appears unprecedented. Unless Trump can undo the damage, it could cripple his administration. In his presidential memoir, "Decision Points," President George W. Bush wrote about the fallout from 2015´s Hurricane Katrina and his own mishandling of the situation. In particular, he admitted that a photo taken of him flying over New Orleans was a huge mistake. "That photo of me hovering over the damage suggested I was detached from the suffering on the ground. That was not how

Washington — A prominent Republican senator delivered a stinging rebuke Thursday of Donald Trump’s short time in office, declaring he has not shown the stability or competence required for an American president to succeed. Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, also said Trump “recently has not demonstrated that he understands the character of this nation.” (Snip) Trump, he said, needs “to take stock of the role that he plays in our nation and move beyond himself, move way beyond himself, and move to a place where daily he’s waking up thinking about what is best for

He was not supposed to be back until Thursday, but President Trump’s Thursday afternoon may have been too much for Joe Scarborough as he returned to air a day early. The Morning Joe host beamed in to co-anchor his namesake show from what appeared to be a living room in Maine to denounce the Commander-in-Chief after the comments he made during his Trump Tower press conference on Tuesday. ´He has now officially become the president of the white nationalist movement,´ said Scarborough. ´The president has chosen sides, and it is very clear. Not only morally, but also politically.´ Scarborough then added: ´He has chosen
