Painting Shows Obama Trampling Constitution
WTAE.com ^ | September 16, 2010

Posted on 09/16/2010 12:50:12 PM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia

SALT LAKE CITY -- A new painting of President Barack Obama by a Utah artist is stirring things up politically.

The piece, which includes every U.S. president, is titled "The Forgotten Man" and shows Obama stepping on the U.S. Constitution.

"I feel like our presidents have really forgotten who put them there," artist Jon McNaughton said.

The painting shows conservative presidents on one side and liberals on the other. It also features dollar bills blowing around and depicts the American flag at half-mast.

"The flag being at half-mast usually happens when there is a tragedy in the country," McNaughton said. "I have painted the flag at half-mast because I feel that right now our country is experiencing a tragedy at monumental proportions."

It’s a great painting...and very sad.

I would have used his Karate pose rather than have him stand with arms crossed. Where is Teddy with the big stick?

"...as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical.

It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as its been interpreted and Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties.

Says what the states can’t do to you. Says what the Federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf..."

- Barack Hussein Obama

Blow up the image. Woodrow Wilson is to the right of FDR. It is not clear if he is applauding. The guy to the right of Woody, however, clearly is-- it might be TR.

Teddy had his faults, but I would never question his patriotism.

Hope the link works. His pricing is quite reasonable, and he has some other interesting pieces as well. He has links that name each person and what they did, and why they are designated as conservative or liberal for each of his paintings.

May God bless,
Tatt

You know it. They allow no dissent against the first black "president". Responding to negative comments directed at BO is the daily full time job of this administration. In fact, that's all they do.

Notice the other progressive presidents clapping their hands and the more conservatives begging for the man on the bench to do something... very clever.

It hangs in the Denver Airport? Where—the janitor’s closet? That is truly repulsive. I don’t even want to think what the “artist’s” intentions were.

Honest Abe should be standing a closer to Hussein. He stomped it a few times himself.

...or else George Bush made him paint it.

Well, that exhausts the supply of Leftist arguments.

Then next thing that they are likely to say is “Poopypants, poopypants...Conservatives are dumbheads!!!!”
or the equivalent, but with $7.95 college words.

I'm just joshing ya, ol' timers will remember those sick-o paintings int he Denver Airport with all those freemason dead Christian images, truly chilling, the style of that Obama painting looks like it could have been done by the same person. If you want to see some bizarre stuff google the denver airport paintings ...

There were alot of threads on them back in the day ...
