JAKARTA Indonesian authorities said Monday they are considering a petition to tear down a statue of US President Barack Obama as a boy, only a month after the bronze was unveiled in Jakarta.
The statue of "Little Barry" -- as Obama was known when he lived in the capital in the late 1960s -- stands in central Jakarta's Menteng Park, a short walk from the US president's former elementary school.
Critics say the site should have been used to honour an Indonesian and 55,000 people have joined a page on social networking website Facebook calling for the statue to be removed.

Even Barry’s fellow Muslims are ashamed of him.
This is the largest muslim country in the world. They are also a democracy. something odumbo doesn’t understand.
My opinion of them went up a couple of notches. The get it. he is a Zero.
Loved the line about eating and chitting.
W-T-F..... You can’t do that to the Choosen one!
He will rise again!
Mmmm, let’s see. Happened with Lenin. Happened with Stalin. Happened with Sadam. Yep, Barry’s in good company.
“Little Barry”, eh?
If they decide to take the statue down, they should send it to Washington, DC. We could make our OWN “Little Barry” monument out of it and but it on the Natiojnal Mall.
It could be after the fashion of those ancient Greek “boy peeing in fountain” statues.
I even know a sculptor who would probably volunteer to carve a marble copy of the U.S. Constitution to serve as “Little Barry’s” target.
Would you do this on the Natiojnal Mall in aMeriKa?

It’s shameful and embarrassing to have this little twirp in the WH! “Little Barry” growing up in Indonesia?! And he becomes POTUS?! I’ll never get over it.
New statue on order.
What kind of a world do we live in where jokes are taken seriously?
I mean, does the “winky-smiley-faced-guy” icon mean NOTHING any more??
Tear it down!
THAT’S the one I was looking for but couldn’t find it quick enough.
Those Husseins have the worst luck with statues.
Critics say the site should have been used to honour an Indonesian...” Well?
I’m actually starting to feel a little sorry for the guy...ROFLMAO!!!!
