You would think that Obama would practically be a god in Chicago and Hawaii — Hawaii being his home state, and Chicago being where he built his career. Apparently residents of both aren’t big fans though, considering that community feedback caused local politicians to cancel their plans to honor our Dear Leader.
Less than a month ago, the city of Chicago did an about-face on naming a school for Barack Obama. Windy City Mayor Rahm Emanuel — Obama’s former Chief of Staff and political adviser — quietly let it be known that a new, state-of-the-art $60 million high school would not be named for the man who had made Chicago his home.
The reason for the rejection? “Community input,” said Emanuel — community input about the former community organizer. Ouch.
Now, the state where Obama claims he was born — the state where the Obama family will reportedly have a home once they leave the White House — yes, the state of Hawaii has its own case of “never mind.”
According to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, two city council members have withdrawn their proposal for renaming a popular beach for Barack Obama — a beach where the president himself has been seen, quite publicly, enjoying the surf.
Don’t feel too bad for Obama, though — he’s still getting other stuff named after him. Apparently, researchers named a parasitic worm in Africa after him, which is probably much more fitting anyway.
