LA School Board Votes To Name Elementary School For First Lady


First lady Michelle Obama has done a great deal for school children: She’s filled their plates with healthier, if less palatable, food and encouraged youngsters to get off their keisters and move around a bit.

Members of the Los Angeles School board have decided to honor the first lady by naming an area elementary school for her. Board members voted unanimously to name Valley Region Elementary School No. 13 after Mrs. Obama, reported CBS Los Angeles.

This is not the first, or biggest, idea for honoring the Obamas while they still occupy the White House. In May, a group of George Washington University professors pondered whether the President has already earned himself a spot on Mount Rushmore.

    There was a time when American public schools were named for patriots who had a positive influence on molding young citizens of OUR Republic; obviously that is now no more. America, you owe the memory of Senator Joe McCarthy an apology … he was right.

    Will they name the school’s sports teams the “Wookies”?

    Is it appropriately located in Watts?

    She deserves the “Nobel Peace Prize.” She should pay attention to her next Cracker Jack box and look for that prize in there!

    When history looks back at the Obozo administration without their rose colored glasses on, I don’t think anyone would want to be insulted by having to say they attended Moochel Obozo elementary school, and South Dakota would not want to deface Mt Rushmore, I would think all 4 of the current faces would crumble right off than be seen with this criminal out to destroy what the others tried to create and preserve.
