A Bumper Crop for Obama
Insight ^ | July 21, '09 | Tom Purcell

Posted on 07/23/2009 10:20:46 PM PDT by T.L.Sink

Sentiment toward Obama is shifting fast if bumper stickers have anything to do with it: "How's that hopey, changey thing working out for you?" "Bankrupt America? Yes, we can!" The bumper stickers people are customizing and buying are an interesting barometer and that doesn't bode well for Obama: "Barack Obama: A new chapter in American history, Chapter 13." "The Audacity of hype." Before the election Obama's bumper stickers were mostly positive. Six months into his presidency, mostly negative. It's true that Bush initiated the bailout. But Obama used it to do things for which it wasn't intended - such as buy a couple automotive companies. "Honk if I'm paying your mortgage." "The big three couldn't sell me a car, so they stole my taxes instead." Many bumper stickers target spending. Obama is making Bush look like a piker. His spending will run our debt to unsustainable levels - beyond $20 trillion in 10 years: "Honk if the word trillion scares you." "Are you better off than you were $4 trillion ago?" "Work harder! Obama needs your money!" "If Obama's stimulus was working, I'd be working."

Purcell also adds the following: Obama is letting the same Congress that wrote the stimulus bill - the same geniuses who packed that bill full of programs that had nothing to do with stimulating anything - draft a massive bill to 'reform' our health care system: "You think health care is expensive now? Wait until it's free." "Didn't our ancestors leave Europe to get away from this crap?" "If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention." ["Many a truth is said in jest." - Shakespeare]

My bumper sticker reads: FOOLS (with two Zero Logos for the O’s)

Mine reads FUBO. I thought of FUBHO later.

I love the simplicity of Hey, Barack, we’re baroke. That’s a great one! Also, Honk if I’m paying your mortgage. These are all great!

Attn: Freepers conservative stickers and anti Barack Hussein Obama items can be obtained at very reasonable prices from The Patriot Depot. Please don’t lend your support to the ultra liberal Obama loving scum at Cafe Press. www.Patriotdepot.com Read more about Cafe Press below.

How’s that hopey, changey thing working out for you?

Bankrupt America? Yes, we can!

Those are some of the top sellers at CafePress.com, an on-demand printer that allows people to customize and sell their own bumper stickers, T-shirts, mugs and other items.

Here’s another gauge: During the election, CafePress customers produced twice as many Obama items (3.3 million) as they did McCain/Palin items (1.7 million). Seventy-five percent of the Obama items were positive in nature.

My favorite is “Don’t tell Obama what comes after a trillion!”

Yeah, that is a good one!

The libs were so smug with their anti-Bush stickers for all those years...well, just look at all the fodder Obama is feeding us. There is already so much more potential for scathing anti-zero stickers than there ever was for anti-Bush ones. Great time to be in bumper sticker sales!

I agree. I thought no one could beat Carter for the Presidential Failure Championship - but Obama’s done it in six months!

I got a great sticker from CafePress (though my husband won’t let me put it on our van ... he’s afraid the crazy libs here will key our car). It has the Obama sigil for the “O,” and it just says:

BEND OVER

I LOVE the "Are you better off than you were a TRILLION DOLLARS ago?" Whoever the GOP candidate is 2012 (Palin, of course), she should use that in the best tradition of Reagan, who famously asked voters "Are you better off than you were 4 years ago?" when running against Jimmy Carter. The GOP candidate should amend that to "Are you better off than you were X TRILLION of dollars and 4 years ago?"

Here's a couple of bumper sticker ideas (and maybe t-shirts)

Congratulations! I sincerely think your bumper sticker slogans really hit the mark! You should try to market them; they’re very funny and at the same time pack a wallop!
