According to a survey of George Washington University professors, some 30 percent generally endorse the eventual addition of President Barack Obama’s face to the Mount Rushmore National Memorial.
The survey, conducted and reported by The College Fix, is hampered by an extremely limited sample size. Nonetheless, the results are fascinating. Of the 10 history and political science profs queried, three suggested that Obama may eventually be added to the huge sculpture of four enormous presidential heads carved into the granite face of a mountain in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
Professor Paul Wahlbeck, who chairs the political science department at GW, says he believes that Obama could be added to the monument because of his race.
“History undoubtedly will accord President Obama a special place by virtue of being the first African-American President,” Wahlbeck told The College Fix via email.
Wahlbeck added that he is, of course, “reluctant to venerate political leaders while or shortly after they served.”
History and public policy professor Edward Berkowitz offered a similar sentiment.
