Tennessee’s Republican Party is trying to tap into the resentment that some Americans are feeling about the Obama administration’s foreclosure prevention program.

Thursday, the Nashville-based organization began selling bumper stickers reading “HONK If you’re paying my mortgage.” In five days more than 4,000 have been purchased, according to Bill Hobbs, the party’s spokesman.

I saw one the other day that said, “Where’s my bailout?” It was on an Army Soldiers car. Awesome!

I think I would reword it to “Honk if I'm Paying YOUR Mortgage”. The way it is might get some righteously outraged Taxpayer to trash your car. Then he's have to pay to fix it when the Gov’t comes in with a Bailout for the Auto Insurance Cos.

I ordered 10 of the “Bend Over” stickers yesterday. For those who haven’t seen it, the “O” on the sticker is represented by the One’s rainbowish logo.

That was my thought. I would buy one of those bumper stickers in a New York minute.

I hope that’s not a new car that you want to keep nice. Many Obama voters are a vicious lot. They don’t like people who have more than they do.

I thought about that in advance... I put the sticker on a blank magnetic bumper sticker. I take it off when I park.

That's our situation. We paid ours off a few months ago.

Ah, yes, that “rainbowish” logo. It’s the one with the American flag lying on the ground with Bill Ayers’ jean-clad legs standing on it.
