This Is the Obama-Aurora Billboard Everyone's Talking AboutThis billboard got a lot of media attention this weekend for its meme-style juxtaposition of President Obama and Aurora-shooter James Holmes. Styled like something you'd see on Reddit, the billboard features side-by-side pictures of the two men with the words "kills 12 in movie theater with assault rifle, everyone freaks out" over Holmes' picture, and "kills thousands with his foreign policy, wins nobel peace prize" over Obama's picture.
Maurice Clements is the guy in charge the billboard. He's part of a group who honor the memory of Libertarian Ralph Smeed. He says the group is angry over Obama not bringing the troops home. "Were all outraged over that killing in Aurora, Colo., but were not outraged over the boys killed in Afghanistan," Clements said. Locals think the billboard is "pathetic," and "abhorrant."

Very poor taste, nothing I would want to be associated with.
This is so wrong.
The caption on the Obama side should read:
“Wins Nobel Peace Prize,
Kills thousands with his foreign policy.”
“Kills thousands with his abortion policy; will provide taxpayer funded abortions under 0bamacare....” etc
At first I thought, this is pretty harsh.
But then I thought what is wrong with comparing a mass murder to the Devil?
Yes, I am being serious.
What this board really illustrates in my mind is the staggering stupidity of American voters.
I thought it was an AR-15, not an assault rifle?
Kills a dozen with a gun,
Kills thousands with a pen,
Freedom of speech does not necessarily mean cogent speech............
After eight years of Bushnazi, BushHitler, Chimpy McHitler, and burning the President in effigy, this is promising.
Obama’s foreign policy as regards Afghanistan is to keep our troops in mortal danger, until the election is over, with no strategy, no mission, no reasonable rules of engagement, and no moral or verbal support from the President; after the election (if he wins) he will shrug off all pretense and withdraw the troops as hastily as possible and as periously as necessary.
His policy, in other words, is to campaign on the backs and fighting and dying Americans, with no thought for their safety or their honor.
The billboard is absolutely on point.
Good for them for using the ridiculous giggling girl picture of Hussein.
Maybe someone can post a clearer verison of this girly pose by the usurper?
I think it is in poor taste, but when I went to northern NY, over the MA border in 2007 I saw the same type signs about Bush being a mass murderer. Billboards and such.
The area was full of wealthy hippie wannabees with their organice farms and basketweaving and such. It just made me aware I never wanted to live in or do business with an area so clueless and self centered. Never thought about taking pictures to mail in places.
Unlike libs, like Bush, my reaction was, it’s great to live in a county with a 1st amendment, where folks are free to demonstrate what utter tools they are.
I knew I recognized that name, and thought the billboard looked familiar. Ralph used to pretty much twist the left's knickers from his billboard in Caldwell, ID. I used to drive by it daily. He'd go after those on the right, too, when it was deserved. Sorry to hear he passed.
My major objection to this is that it gives the impression that a RIGHT-Wing group had it erected.
