I'm surprised that Obama hasn't already dictated the name change.

What's stopping him?  He doesn't give a rip about his legal authority anyway.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

If I was the owner of the Redskins, I'd tell Obama perhaps he should think about actually acting like a President.

Names Obama would dictate for the Redskins by executive order, of course...

Since the Annenberg Poll was done in 2004 during the Bush administration, I'm sure Ali Bama considers it no longer to be valid. :pondering:  If he finds the name 'Redskins' offensive, I find many of the things he says about middle class Americans to be HIGHLY offensive so I would expect him to change his rhetoric. :thumbsdown:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

Middle of a government shut down and this is the taking point?

It truly is the most transparently pathetic administration ever.

Obama has mistaken the executive branch of our government for a King's decree.

The members of Congress are letting him get away with it!

If we have to change the name REDSKINS


Then I better never hear another Liberal say the word REDNECK


If I do, I'll charge them with a HATE CRIME on the spot, and call the police
