Absolutely agree with the preceding three comments. Mark Kieft just about took the words out of my mouth. All Obama brought us was more war mongering and more obstruction to universal health care. The Nobel committee already disgraced itself by giving him the Peace Prize. He deserves nothing but an honest evaluation of his presidency - something which has so far not seen the light of day.

Do not name the highway after Obama. Perhaps a garbage dump in need of a name?

I agree with the sentiments of others who have posted on your website earlier today. DO NOT rename Interstate 25 after ANY political figure, and DO NOT waste taxpayer money on signage in connection with the same. If you don’t any have more pressing issues to address than this, you shouldn’t be representing the people of Colorado!

Do not rename I-25 after any political figure. Don’t you have more important business to address than crap like this.
