The New Obama Typeface: Revolution Gothic
Buzz Feed ^ | 7/7/12 | Zeke Miller BuzzFeed Staff

Posted on 07/09/2012 11:29:49 AM PDT by Nachum

A reader points out that President Barack Obama's new typeface is Revolution Gothic, a style inspired by retro Cuban propaganda posters. Who vets the fonts? (Obama press secretary Ben LaBolt emails: “Your GOP operative should have had the courtesy to stay sober before noon, and BuzzFeed should go back to labeling cat slideshows.”)

“Your GOP operative should have had the courtesy to stay sober before noon ...

LOL! it's like Bob Beckel accusing people of early and heavy drink. Hey Dems! It's spelled P-R-O-J-E-C-T-I-O-N.

No surprise, his Houston campaign office had SEVERAL Che Guevara flags posted during the 2008 election.

Stalinists lie. Always.

And the White House Press Office shows their usual grace, courtesy and class in responding.

Ben LaBolt??? Sounds more like a fag porn star.. but considering that’s part of Obozo’s target demographic, it’s not that far fetched.

I don’t understand why people don’t understand who Obama is. He’s a socialist dictator wannabe.

Revolution rock, it is a brand new rock
A bad, bad rock, this here revolution rock
Careful how you move Mac, you dig me in me back and I'm so pilled up that I rattle
I have got the sharpest knife, so I cut the biggest slice, I've got no time to do battle
Everybody smash up your seats and rock to this brand new beat
This here music mash up the nation
This here music cause a sensation
Tell your ma, tell your pa everything's gonna be all right
Can't you feel it? Don't ignore it
Gonna be alright

I wonder which bright bulb over there came up with the slogan: "Betting on America"

Don't betting odds almost always favor the house in the end?

And while you are at it, check the www.dailyracingrag.com to see Ann Romney's amazing walk-in closet. It's to die for!

Unfortunately, the vast majority Americans don’t know that 0bama is a communist, nor do they know why that’s bad, nor do they care.

But they will tune in to American Idol.

Years ago, I was creating a print ad for a conservative Catholic newspaper. I was trying to match the paper’s own typefaces to trick readers into thinking my ad was an article.

It turns out that the primary headline typeface used was named “Humanist Bold”.

Idol is over for the season.
Today’s hot items are: new Kardashian baby, global warming induced heat wave, and Tom & Katie’s divorce.

Oh, I believe most people do understand. The ones who support him just don't care. They think something will still be in it for them.
