Man paints picture of all the past presidents...surprise with Obama....
Thanks for the post. I want to cry.
Against the background of a darkening sky, all of the past Presidents of the United States gather before the White House, as if to commemorate some great event. In the left hand corner of the painting sits a man. That man, with his head bowed appears distraught and hopeless as he contemplates his future. Some of the past Presidents try to console him while looking in the direction of the modern Presidents as if to say, What have you done? Many of these modern Presidents, seemingly oblivious to anything other than themselves, appear to be congratulating each other on their great accomplishments. In front of the man, paper trash is blowing in the wind. Crumpled dollar bills, legislative documents, and, like a whisperthe U.S.Constitution beneath the foot of Barack Obama.
Yeah, I was there today. Great site, can even order the poster, if you want. And you can scroll over the picture for info on the pieces of paper on the ground, or the Presidents of this USA.
Great art in the service of waking people up, BUMPS!!!!
I would make one slight change to the painting. James Madison instead of bending down saying “what in God’s name are you doing?”, would instead be giving Obama a swift kick square in the shin with his colonial style square toe hard leather size 9 1/2.
