According to Bristol’s blog, which was written to criticize the said move of the president, there are other more important issues that he has to give attention to.

The historic change made on the three-day presidential trip to Alaska, will be part of the president’s legacy in fighting climate change.
On her blog, Bristol said that the president, while in Alaska, should check their oil fields or focus on opening a pipeline to supply our own natural gas instead of buying it from the Middle East.
“The President should be worrying about the radical jihadists ISIS who are gaining land and power everyday as they enslave, rape, and murder their way through the Middle East.,” Bristol Palin wrote. ”But instead he worries about renaming a mountain.”
Bristol said she never called the mountain Denali.
“By the way, no one is buying the ‘Denali is what the Alaskans have called it for years’ line. I’ve never called the mountain Denali, and neither does anyone I know…It’s Mt. Mckinley…It always has been and always will be to most of us,” Bristol claimed.
Well, looks like Bristol forgot about her mother.
Half-term Alaska Governor and Bristol’s mom, Sarah Palin, called the mountain Denali in her farewell speech from office back in 2009.
“Denali, the great one, soaring under the midnight sun,” the former governor said in her speech.
And during the 2008 election, Denali was even the codename the Secret Service used for Sarah Palin.
Natives of Alaska had long before called the mountain Denali, meaning “The High One.” It was changed to Mt. Mckinley in 1896 to honor the 25th US president, William Mckinley.
