"There are several political signs attracting all kinds of attention in one Uptown neighborhood.

On Wednesday, crowds gathered at the corner of Calhoun and Coralie streets, looking at several signs depicting President Barack Obama as either a dunce, a puppet or a crying baby in a diaper."

Bush as a chimp or as Hitler was offensive. The fact that this guy is a whiner is apparent to all.

I seem to remember during the election there was a move to make criticizing Obama illegal. I mean literally against the law.

The Obama thugs were told to look for anything anti-Obama and then call the police. And in a couple of cases the police actually showed up.

The fact that the guy was not immediately arrested just shows how poorly the Messiah has done and how times have changed.

The Obama ‘infallibility’ idea is gone.

A thread last night showed that sign and it had Herman Cain bumper stickers on it. That pic has been Photoshopped.

Awesome! If those signs cause just 1 previous Obama voter to change his/her mind, they did their job!

So are, according to the local news, people are saying it is his right to have the sign. Funny part, Ray Nagin (NO former mayor) visited his home about the sign, came out of the house and said nothing. I guess the guy will get the expected visit from Jessie Jackson and crew. All I can say is this guy has real guts given the PC invironment we live in. I may try to go see the sign in person before things really hit the fan. I am sure Louisiana/NO will be rediculed on late night shows but what’s new about that.

Here is the original, with Herman Cain bumperstickers. They've obviously been photoshopped out of the pic above so the newsies can claim it's ALL about racism. Such obvious BS.

Might this have been taken later after the power line shadow was gone and the bumper stickers added by someone else? Color seems like a late day “red” instead of sunshine “red” as the first picture shows?

FWIW???

The pic in the OP was a screenshot from the TV news report...And their site.

No telling which was which, I guess!

Hmmm...works for me in Chrome.

Wonder what’s up.

Try again in a bit and see what happens.

I just tried again. Same result. The website’s control bar at the top appears, but nothing underneath. Perhaps due to the current server I’m attached to? I’ll try again after work.

Interesting! I clicked on “Home” and the page came up with text and pictures, including a link to the story regarding the sign. But, when I clicked on the link for the story, the page came up blank like before.

More the latter than the former, in that part of town.

Notice the video surveillance warning sign. No wonder the local college students haven't yet defaced it or set it on fire.

True enough, but one only has to wander a few blocks in any direction before one finds the former.

I wonder who put that sign there, because it is really akin to putting a crucifix into a den of vampires.

This guy is playing these Leftists like a Stradivarius violin. Just think of how much publicity he has generated. And now some want to create zoning rules with the intention of restricting his first amendment rights? Even more publicity.

I really don’t like this kind of signs but they are funny anyway.

I wonder if a “positive” sign for another candidate will be left undisturbed? Surveillance camera and all! LOL
