Fairey,

, "Some of the works are about gridlock in Washington. Washington is too intertwined with corporate America . . . I had a lot of hope for Obama, but it's not panning out. He's not pushing hard enough."

Is he down on Obama or no longer down with Obama? I can’t get the lingo these kids use straight anymore.

All things being equal, you would think this guy would want to change his name. But after looking at him, maybe not.

The more time that passes, the more I believe Obama just wanted to be president. Not to govern or solve problems, but to go down in history as the first “black” president. He really doesn’t have a clue what he is doing and neither do those he surrounds himself with.

When I saw Shepard and Fairey in the title, I thought it was about Shepard Smith.

Fairey is a sell out.

He has a deal with Saks Fifth Ave.

What kind of anti-corpratist is he anyway?

'Hope' Artist Shepard Fairey Down on Obama

Interesting headline. I bet he was "down" on Obama before...

Good to hear the regret, but these people are still delirious. They do not realize that they were used. This guy intended all along to take the reigns of the entrenched bureaucracy, grow it beyond any of our worst nightmares, and tighten the relationships with entrenched large interests. People like this were clueless enough to buy his crap about ‘changing how Washington works’. They think he just hasn’t done enough.

Which is why I don’t think he will run for re-election.

He wanted to become POTUS and pass Obamacare. Then he will leave and go fun the UN or something.

Fairey got rich off Obama's candidacy and victory. Does he have any regrets over that?

Why do people still say his the first black president? He is not black nor white, he is mulatto! One more point, and a disgrace to this great nation!

Did he EVER run for re-election? I thought he kept stepping up his offices (from state legislature to US senator to the White House).

He never had to persuade a majority of voters to put him BACK into the same office. He just kept looking for a bigger pool of fools.

He's “Ben and Jerry's” kind of anti-corpratist.

In other words, he wants to line his pockets just like any other CAPITALIST.

Not pushing hard enough, eh?

That's what you get when your candidate was allowed to skate through college ala affirmative action, having everything handed to him just because of his race.

You get a smooth-talking (when the teleprompters work), lazy, good for nothing, narcissistic bum.

Can't he just eat his waffle and shoot some hoops and play some golf.

Nobody told him this president'n stuff was going to be WORK!

Bingo!

He’s a drive-by politician.

Hit and run.

I'll believe that he is "down" on OBAMA(TM) when he goes to making anti-Obama artworks and pasting them up in the middle of the night as he did against GW Bush and when he promoted Obama...

Bingo. And it's a real shame that this artist was hired to create the front covers for the new editions of George Orwell's anti-Stalinist novels "Animal Farm" and "1984".

I know he isn’t black but he doesn’t know he isn’t black.

The most radical politician ever elected to Congress isn’t far left enough for this pinko.

Bummer dude.

He has been the “Graffrti Artist in Residence” here in Cincy for a month or two.
I guess its rubbing off on him.

Obama knows exactly what he is doing. He is doing what he and his minions intend to do in a swift and terrifying way. He was selected because they needed to get the black vote to win. The John Kerry types and Hillary couldn’t have got them to the polls in big numbers.

I have always thought he was promised all the perks like parties and luxuries for being the big COIC, Community Organizer In Chief. He acts as though he knows very little about being an American. I also think he knew he could very well be a one termer for wrecking the US. That was the plan.

Sooo...he feels deserving of all the parties and glitz and he doesn’t really care if folks don’t like it.

I’m afraid that the perks of this job may be too good to voluntarily give up, though.

I disagree.

If you think these people want to be successful (want their programs to be successful) I think you are mistaken.

These people want a revolution. They want discord and chaos.

They are systematically destroying the US economy a sewing the seeds of hatred and sedition.

They plan their programs with failure in mind. Then when the program fails they blame their enemies (banks, Wall Street, BP, businesses, Republicans and capitalism).

The hatred builds as the economy tanks. Our only hope is that truth wins out this November.

Yes, he is destroying the economy, abusing and insulting the American People and our closest allies on purpose to achieve his marxist goal of ‘fundamental change’.

That was one of his first "tricks." People bought it, too. If he went with the truth and referred to himself as mulatto (or bi-racial), he wouldn't be the president, I don't think.

You, my fine FRiends, are nothing if not astute. Top that with a dash of pointing out truth.

Could be he’s not using straight lingo, his last name is Fairey, you know. Check with Larry Sinclair.
