Should Mr Obama be the first black person on American Currency?
Why or why not?
What currency would you suggest his likeness appear on if you are of the opinion that he should be depicted on currency?

I think he should have his face on the Pound.... the Egyptian Pound, not the UK Pound. In fact, any ME country would be fine.... since he seems to favor them over our country.

How about stamping him on a penny so it reminds all of a 'scent'?

It is federal law that no living man or woman can appear on U.S. currency, so we have a long time to consider the answers to these questions.

He should have his face on the Ruble, he's inflicted more damage on the USA than a Russian first strike could ever accomplish

I am merely looking towards the future.
I'm pro-active like that.

Sorry, I thought you were talking in the near term. My mistake.

But we still can't answer those questions until he finishes his time in office, and we can see what effect his decisions and policies will have. Then there is the harder decision of which of the current likenesses do we remove?

I think Obama deserves an aircraft carrier to be named after him.
After all he got OBL.

Some former presidents are on two pieces of currency.
Pick one.

I was not aware the food stamps came in notes with faces on them. However..that would be the currency i would put it on.

I agree that he will get his name on the first carrier that is started after he leaves office, and rightly so. And it will be for the respect of being the President, not for anything to do with bin Laden.

Yep George Herbert Walker Bush got his name on one and did very little to deserve it other than being president.

I wonder why the Navy never commissioned a carrier or any other vessel for Bill Clinton? Maybe he asked them not to? :dunno:
