I just saw this on HSN and couldn't believe it . . ..
(Excerpt) Read more at hsn.com ...
KEYWORDS: change; coin; dearleaderobama; hsn; obama; obamamessiah; obamaworship; submission
I think most of the shopping channels are selling Obama-merchandise. They are all about sales, after all - so they are selling what is being championed as “commemorative”, “historical”, and “collectible”.

I guess there were inspired by McCain’s skit on “Saturday Night Live” (with McCain/Palin “renting” airtime on QVC to counter-balance Obama’s infomercial).

I know, but the ironic pun in the title (theirs, not mine) is just too delicious.
The idiots on the left will blow their welfare checks on those worthless things.

How do you make a small fortune in Obama coins?
Start with a large fortune.
I just saw this on HSN and couldn't believe it . . ..
I've not seen the QVC advert.
But I'm inclined to believe it.
As I saw an advert on TV today (channel unknown as I was just
passing through the living room) and it was advertizing a coin that
looks like the one at the middle top of your graphic.
With The ObamaMessiah...Anything is possible!!!

I saw it on FoxNews just a short time ago. I thought it was funny that they said “a $24.99 value, now for just $9.99”.

I had to go to Wal Mart today and was struck in the check out line of all of the mag covers with the ONE and the front page of today’s Toledo Blade devoted to this nothing person. It all makes me ill...
I went to the site but couldn't figure out what the initials HSN are supposed to stand for.
Hussein the Savior Network?
Buy it for $24.95 today and it will be worth .05 cents in 6 months.... ;)

I had to go to Wal Mart today and was struck in the check out
line of all of the mag covers with the ONE and the front page
of todays Toledo Blade devoted to this nothing person.
Same here in Mid-Missouri (The Columbia, MO Tribune).
This is just another in an endless line of extrordinary delusions
and the madness of crowds.
Similar to the way in which periodicals learned that every time
Princess Diana appeared on their covers, sales went through the roof.
EVEN before she got "kilt".
Obama is just another Princess Diana.
With a much better tan.

Wasn't there a law at one time about defacing currency? I looked it up on Google and found this:
United States currency and coinage are governed by federal law through the U.S. Treasury Department. Generally, it is illegal to fraudulently deface, mutilate, impair, diminish, falsify, scales (sic) or lightens any coins minted or “coined” in the United States or any foreign coins which are by law made current or are in use or circulation as money within the U.S. (18 U.S.C. 331)
It is also a crime to fraudulently possess, pass, publish, sell or attempt to possess, pass, publish, sell or bring into the U.S. any such coin with knowledge that the coin has been altered, mutilated, defaced, etc. (18 U.S.C. 331)
Defacing currency with the intent to alter the bill to gain a benefit is illegal. If someone alters a written instrument (such as a check) without permission and with the intent to gain a benefit, then it is called forgery, which is a crime. If one tried to alter a cash bill (like changing a $5 bill to a $20 bill) for the purpose of presenting the altered bill to gain a benefit, then that could be considered a forgery. Forgery of United States Currency in this manner is called counterfeiting and carries with it very stiff penalties.

(Don't blame me, I voted for John McCain and Sarah Palin. Well, for Sarah Palin, anyway.)
at least Diana did some good...
Indeed. If they only knew.... (or maybe some do?)

Lol. FNC must have put the ad into its regular rotation; I saw it again just a couple of minutes ago. I was tickled at the "value price", too. Erm, has it already been relegated to the clearance bin? Hey, buy two Obama coin collections and they'll throw in some Mighty Putty, a Swivel Sweeper, and three Shamwows.

(Delightfully tacky since 1974.)
I don't see any customer reviews yet.
Nobody is buying the Change change?

In my local Pa paper today, I saw something about a new $3.00 bill with Obama as the face on the bill. I am still not able to stomach hearing or reading anything about the ONE.

(Wake me up in 4 years.)
That is funny. I wish someone would call in and ask about Obama’s change. “What denominations are they? It looks like a quarter, a dime, a nickle and a penny. 41 cents in Obama change!”

Isn’t it illegal to put the face of a living person on a bill?
