One Nation, Under a New Obama Salute - Washington Whispers (usnews.com)
US News - Washington Whispers ^ | 08/07/08 | Paul Bedard

Posted on 08/07/2008 6:40:18 PM PDT by vrwc54

George Bush had his three-fingered W salute that supporters flashed when greeting him at presidential campaign events in 2000. And now, if a Los Angeles creative agency gets its way, Sen. Barack Obama will see fans meet him with his own salute like the one above. "Our goal is to see a crowd of 75,000 people at Obama's nomination speech holding their hands above their heads, fingers laced together in support of a new direction for this country, a renewed hope, and acceptance of responsibility for our future," says Rick Husong, owner of The Loyalty Inc.

Those 75,000 are going to look like they want to wring Obamy’s neck. Those LA “creative” guys aren’t very bright.

He’s a zero. Of course, the middle finger would also be appropriate for Zero bama.

Ever since I’ve seen his tacky little “Presidential Seal”, the custom embroidered “Obama President” leather seats on his plane (how much campaign $$ did those cost?), and now this little gesture - he keeps reminding me of Steve Harvey. Just bizarre, horrible taste in everything.

I seem to remember being in a restaurant in Southern Italy many years ago and I flashed the A-Okay sign to the waiter and my friend at the table told me that in this part of the world that meant A—Hole....and was an insult !..so maybe we should encourage it !

You’re right on about the marxist art. Shepard Fairey who did the progress poster admits that he was infuenced by Soviet style art.

Well, I guess this was the next stage; little gimmicks to make the masses feel like they are part of something. You start with a charismatic leader, give him a bunch of NLP filled rhetoric, work with the media outlets and entertainment outlets to make it 'cool' to be part of the group. Then, of course, you need some sort of salute or hand signal to let everyone know you are part of the 'chosen' crowd. The next thing will be matching uniforms...

..oh wait, who are we talking about again?

No, empty. His rhetoric is empty. His change is empty. His experience is empty, not present & when he was he voted “present”. His patriotism is empty. His promises are empty. His words are empty - “just words”.

Marxist and Fascist. I toured Spain and visited the Valle de los Caidos so I know what you mean.

That other reply to me got pulled. I don't remember your name but you're so right, it is scary.

There is a fun experiment.. Go to a leftist forum, post some Hitler quotes, just change a word or two so it is period, and put Obama's name after it and see if folks can tell the difference.. I am not kidding, it works..

All great movements are popular movements. They are the volcanic eruptions of human passions and emotions, stirred into activity by the ruthless Goddess of Distress or by the torch of the spoken word cast into the midst of the people.
Adolf Hitler or Barack Obama?

He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.
Adolf Hitler or Barack Obama?

People of Berlin - people of the world - this is our moment. This is our time.

Hey, that's right. It was the Japs who dropped that bomb on Pearl Harbor, right? And, of course, the LBM (that's Lame-Brain Media, for those in Rio Linda) wouldn't even mention this.

WTG, well done!

Well, have to have a bit of fun sometime. What does 'menino' mean in Mexican? NOT Spanish. I assume something to do with a male child or children, but I only speak a little Spanish, no Mexican at all ...barring a few obscenities.
