Billboards Against Obama

A couple of months ago, I told you about the billboard that an anonymous group of businessmen put up in the Oshkosh area that was calling for the impeachment of President Obama for not fixing Bush's recession fast enough.

It now appears that this might have been part of bigger movement:

Achieving an unlikely harmony between old and new media, an anonymous group of Atlanta business owners is using a website to crowdsource the funding of an anti-Obama billboard campaign.

The group -- Billboards Against Obama -- was formed several weeks ago, and has already put up several billboards in the Atlanta metro area, according to local news reports.

While the group plans to remain anonymous, they have asked life coach, motivational speaker, and New York Times bestselling author Tommy Newberry to act as their spokesman. Newberry told TPM that the group was united by a common frustration against Obama and a desire to do something with that feeling.

I'm sure this is just another "grassroots" movement, like the Koch Industries-sponsored TEA Parties.


  1. According to the most recent polling, Obama would lose reelection to a potted plant.

    I don't think any industrialists can change that one way or another.

    I know that's a hard concept for you to grasp, but you might want to start working towards that eventuality.

    I know you are a self-indentified mental health expert, so hopefully you can work on this as a self-actualization project.

  2. There is still more than two and a half years until the next presidential election.

    Plenty of time for people to see through the right wing's smoke and mirrors.
