I just want to make it clear that I don't want to have Mt. Rushmore "blown up". What I wrote yesterday was stupid and offensive, and I retract it entirely. I apologize to anyone who read my original post and to anyone who will read it.
When my family visited in '97, we were shocked and taken aback by all the changes that had taken place since our earlier visit in '89. I thought the new visitor center and parking garages were an assault upon the natural setting, and I don't think I will ever go back. Now that I've had a chance to sleep on it, this posting (and see below) is truly how I feel about the place.
However, to those who have never been, this is what will be the normal appearance. I believe Mt. Rushmore is something everyone should see in their life, just understand that it will only take about 1-2 hours to experience it. It is a stunning large rock sculpture, especially with clear skies. I think the people in charge could do some more to make the whole experience more interesting, and maybe they have, as I said I have not been there in 15 years.
Again my apologies for an incredibly stupid and offensive post.
One postscript in relation to the thread, I seem to recall there was a movement to put Reagan on Mt. Rushmore also. My personal opinion is that since it's been this way for so long, it should not be added to. It also takes a fair amount of maintenance on the four faces that are there now, so adding a face would add to that.
Nearly everything you post is stupid and offensive, so why bother apologizing for what comes so naturally to you?

NATIONAL PARK SERVICES TO ADD PRESIDENT OBAMA TO MOUNT RUSHMORE
VIBE Pop Culture Posted November 20, 2012
http://www.vibe.com/article/national-park-ser...

One way to capitalize on your stellar win for re-election is to be added amongst our nation's founders on Mount Rushmore. Is it true? We have the details after the jump.

CORRECTION: According to the U.S. National Parks, there's simply no room for any more additions to Mount Rushmore.[Source: HuffPo]

Is President Barack Obama being added to the legendary Mt. Rushmore monument in Keystone, South Dakota? It appears that the National Park Service formally announced its intent to proceed with the modification, which is scheduled to begin in late 2015. The official announcement was made yesterday at NPS' Washington D.C. offices, and carries a target completion date of September 2018.

The project aims to involve several hundred miners and engineers (Obama putting people back to work!) and will utilize state of the art machinery and green solvents to re-create Obama's bust in the area adjacent to the George Washington visage. Optimistically, the three-year completion time is a bit of a rush, seeing that it took a total of fourteen years to construct the original monument. Unlike the throwback era construction, which relied on workers affixed to the top of the monument via rope harnesses, hydraulic lifts are expected to be placed with telescoping platforms, employing the same engineering technology currently in use to reconstruct the World Trade Center.
==========

I VOTE YES TO THIS AS DOES OVER 50% OF THE ELECTORATE!! With our win in this election, this is a logical next step.....

Oh, really!?!? I'll admit I hadn't even thought about the topic until I saw it open here, but doing a little digging, it's not difficult to find some confirmation. I even found one confirm from a right wing website, Georgette, just so you know that I can be fair and balanced. Here ya go, sweetness:

Obama To Be Added To Mt. Rushmore – Park Service Confirms
Posted on November 19, 2012 by Geoffrey Willis
http://thinkingrightblog.com/obama-to-be-adde...

In an action that I can only describe as tragic, the United State National Park Service announced today that it has contracted to add the face of President Obama to the Mount Rushmore National Memorial near Rapid City, South Dakota. Evidently secret negotiations between the Park Service and the private donors sponsoring the addition have been ongoing since the later part of 2009. The American tax payer will not foot any of the bill as a combination of the Nobel Foundation (sister organization to the Nobel Prize) and the Soros Foundation have agreed to cover the entire cost of the addition. When asked about the timing of the announcement the Nobel Foundation spokesman Thor Karolinska told the press “we awarded President Obama a Nobel Prize for winning his first election, we thought something a bit more permanent would be more appropriate for his second victory.”

The project will be completed in phases with the planning stage already finished. The Park Service conceded that the five-year schedule is going to be a serious challenge given that the original work took fourteen years, but the contract provides that workers salaries will be increased for every additional year that the work continues providing the necessary incentives to have the work completely in a timely fashion.”We did discuss the potential incentive for the workers to extend the schedule, but the unions convinced us that they would keep the workers properly motivated,” said Hugar.

Technical difficulties originally put execution of the project in jeopardy.”One of the key problems that we faced was finding suitable rock for the new carving,” stated NPS spokesman Tre Hugar.”Most of the rock around the existing sculpture is quite fragile and obviously we can’t do anything to threaten the integrity of the original memorial. Now that we have completed the feasibility study, we are moving directly to design and have tentatively settled on this digitally created projection of the look of the final work”(See picture above)”Obviously a huge part of this is the generous donations of the donors that allow all of this to be done without any federal funds.”
==========

Oh yeah, we just wanted some free stuff, like our beloved President on the side of the mountain....To use term succinctly.....ROCK ON!!

The faces on Mt. Rushmore represent the following: Washington, the father of the country. Jefferson, father of our nation's laws and constitution. Lincoln, who preserved the union. Teddy Roosevelt, who made the nation into a world power.

So, do we now carve an image of a EBT card into the granite to honor President Foodstamp?

Mt. Rushmore needs to be blown up. It's the most boring thing to look at in the Black Hills. The four men portrayed are certainly great, but to go and look at that ceases to be interesting after 10 minutes. And the Park Service managed to turn the Visitor Center from something that complemented nature into something that Albert Speer would have admired. Not to mention the construction of two parking garages, out in BFE.
Blast the faces off, smooth it into a flat vertical surface, and show an IMAX movie about the history of our country on it. THEN you would have something. And change the movie regularly. Then the whole experience would have the complete tackiness that American and world tourists love.
Good idea.

The rock on Mount Rushmore is to soft to support another face.
