Illinois Announces “Barack Obama Day” – Snubs Former President Ronald Reagan

Former President Barack Obama is getting his own official holiday. The governor of Illinois, Bruce Rauner, has officially declared August 4 as “Barack Obama Day” beginning in 2018. The governor signed the bill in “recognition of Obama’s career serving in the Illinois State Senate, the United States Senate and as president,” according to ABC 7.

Now in the Land of Lincoln, Obama will be honored. The bill passed both houses of the state legislature, without a single “No” vote.:

Considering Obama’s eight years were a disaster, we should remember those eight years were a holiday for the Obama family. And with the serious violent crime and poverty suffered by Chicago, this is a fitting tribute to Obama’s legacy.

But Obama didn’t move to Chicago until the 1980s, where he worked as a “community organizer.” Born in Hawaii, he moved to Seattle, Indonesia, Los Angeles, and then attended Columbia in New York City.

And now that he’s out of the White House, he has no plans to move back. Instead, the Obamas own luxury accommodations in Washington, D.C., Palm Springs, California, and Honolulu. Obama’s Chicago-ties are only out of his own political convenience.

Why has the state ignored Ronald Reagan? After all, he was born in Tampico, Illinois, in 1911 on 2nd floor apartment in a commercial building. He even attended Eureka College, which is in Illinois. That is really disgraceful.

How will you celebrate Barack Obama Day? Please leave us a comment (below) and tell us.


Thomas is a movement conservative and American patriot. He has a vigorous blue-collar, Jacksonian attitude with a skeptical eye toward pop culture and political correctness. He’s not afraid to sound the alarm about America’s rapid decline. He has worked on political campaigns for over a decade at every level of government.

  • Actually I would celebrate Obozo Day the day he goes to prison! That would be worthy of a huge celebration!!!

  • Why he needs his own day is beyond me..he already had Presidents' Day, which Lincoln and Washington lost out to. What's good enough for great men like Lincoln and Washington should be good enough for Barry.

  • If it is a paid state holiday, I will thank him for the one thing he did for me, and ponder if a Muslim could be canonized in my lifetime.

  • Obozo Day, totally ludicrous!! This idiot did nothing for this country but try to destroy it but if the people in Illinois are that ignorant then let then celebrate. No one else in this country will recognize it or celebrate such a moron!

  • How I feel I will never celebrate any Obama day,or anything else he has done.If Chicago want to celebrate him then they can have there own day in Illinois,do they think he was greater than Kennedy,Reagan,or any other president? I call him the worse president that American has ever had he has been a national pain in the you know what for eight years

  • Does this create a paid holiday for Illinois state and local public employees??? That would be insane to be throwing out another holiday when their pension system is in tatters and careening towards default. If it does not, then its about as important as National Chip and Dip Day.

    • That's because Illinois is full of corrupt politicians like Obozo, Valerie Jarret, Eric Holder, Rahm Emanuel & previous govenor Blagojevich who is in prison where the rest of these criminal idiots should be.

  • It's like having a Chicago Murder Day. This guy does not deserve a holiday. He deserves time in GITMO, stupid idiots.
