I had a bad dream. President Obama plans to make certain changes to Mount Rushmore.
The two Republican presidents, Abe Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt, will be replaced by Jimmy Carter and himself. This will bring a much-needed update to this historic monument.
Also, the name of Mount Rushmore will be changed to the name of a woman Democrat yet to be selected.
Congressional Democrats all support these changes. After all, they support whatever the president wants, no matter how stupid. Some extremist, right-wing Republicans oppose this, but most Republicans pretend it is not happening.
Never miss a local story.
House Speaker John Boehner said that he wants to see how the changes turn out before he offers a comment. One leading Senate Republican drafted legislation that requires a two-thirds majority in the Senate to defeat Obama's plan.
A local Republican congressman plans to vote in favor of the president for fear that opposition would cause a government shutdown. But he need not worry. If Obama's one-third vote seems doubtful, he will use an executive order anyway.
It's only a dream. But it could happen. And seeing how things are going; it probably will.
