    That's right, Obama has changed the name of the tallest mountain in North American from Mt. McKinley to Mt. Denali.

    So what are some other things that need name changes?

    How can acheive political correctness perfection?

    Actually he has restored it to its original name. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/31/us/mount-mckinley-will-be-renamed-denali.html?_r=0

    That seems a "conservative" thing to do.

    Recognizing the common usage by Alaska citizens today, the 1975 request of the state legislature, and the restoration in that year of the name to Denali by the the Alaska Board of Geographic Names. The US BGN didn't go along.

    Your knee-jerk reaction to all things Obama is alive and well. It discredits you, don't you know that????

    Yours is the knee-jerk.

    Whodey made no comment, derisive or otherwise.

    Yes, we know Whodey, we also know if Obama wore the same tie twice in one week, you'd be complaining about that too! 🙄

    Not a name change. The native peoples of Alaska have called that mountain Denali for over a thousand years.
    Read the history before you post.

    The name denali has never changed and still is what the general area is called.

    If the next Republican president does not change it back you will know it is more than simply Obama making the change.

    Ohioans aren't happy about it (President McKinley was from Ohio) so if John Kasich becomes President he might reverse it. http://news.yahoo.com/ohio-gov-kasich-opposes-changing-name-mount-mckinley-205205060--election.html;_ylt=A0LEVu7ePOZVrAQArz4nnIlQ;_ylu=X3oDMTByMjB0aG5zBGNvbG8DYmYxBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDBHNlYwNzYw--

    Knee jerk reaction? I'm glad Obama changed the name.

    After all, do we want statist politicians putting their names on anything? I see this as progress. 😵

    So you don't think "denali" was a name brought up by some local statist politician? It seems there were many.
