Ahhhh that makes it OK then.

I'm not denying that such a thing has happened before, although Obama's began before he even took office. JFK had one too. You know, the whole Camelot thing. Although were there Ronald Reagan roads, schools, etc while he was President? If so, equally unacceptable. I wasn't aware that when bringing this up I needed to mention each instance that it has happened before.

I thought I was clear on this - it doesn't matter what President it is, it's not cool while they're in office.

Unmentioned is the cult that has grown up around Ronald Reagan. Started while he was still in office, and still active.

You know that there is an organization whose sole purpose is to get things named after Reagan?

Like the 11th hole at the Tierra Rejada golf course?

Akron texted me the other day, a picture of a sign that read Obama's BBQ Chicken. It was in MO, I forget the town name.

Germans were required to buy Mein Kampf. I figure we will be labeled as racist or un caring for poor children, if we do not buy the book. The Nazi's held several national charity drives to benefit the poor of Germany. Very little and sometimes none of the money ever went to the poor. It all went into the pockets of the Nazi leaders.

A person can buy Obama books for cheap online. Nice scam B&N has~take a donation for full price on a book they probably bought for a buck each.

How about they give away The Book: The Pursuit of Happyness instead?

I don't especially disagree with you, YLM.

Those who like Obama shouldn't like this sort of thing either. If it becomes the norm, it'll be Presidents you don't like on t-shirts, school wall murals, painted with a crown of thorns in front of the Presidential seal, or other crap like that. It is not good for this country.

As for the more practical side of things - do we not have ANYTHING better to give homeless kids than biographies of Obama?

"..celebrity status and hero worship a lot of people, including some in the media, and even some here, afford this particular President to be very distasteful..."

And, as you know, VA, taste has very little correlation to profit margin. As tbr alluded to, its just a business decision. I'm sure if they could promote an ant, and receive the same results, they'd do that to.

A cult of personality does not need to originate from the person at the center of it, and I'm not accusing Obama himself of having anything to do with it, supporting it, or approving it.

I disagree with Wikipedia's definition which suggests that a cult of personality must originate from the person(s) at the center of it. Personality cults can be built surrounding people who aren't even alive, such as Che Guevara, or even around a fictional person (such as Big Brother).

And I fully appreciate that a true cult of personality is far and beyond what we're talking about here. But I find the celebrity status and hero worship a lot of people, including some in the media, and even some here, afford this particular President to be very distasteful. He's the President and is certainly worthy of the respect of his office. But holy crap...... schools and roads?

But this is not Obama mandated. He has nothing to do with it.

So I suppose you have a right to be upset, but to call it a cult of personality is off base...
