0bama is getting way out of hand. ACORN/SEIU and this continuation of our money being spent to spread his propaganda.
No one cares it won’t change anything... but people have no freaking jobs and this money is wasted.
In the meanwhile, as he strives for such homage, it probably seems little enough for him to ask American artists to replicate the fantasy art of the Soviet & Nazi regimes, so that Americans may be reeducated in their ideals.
