    Obama - The Joker

    Ya know, some people just don't get it. As they say, the truth hurts. Real Americans call it FREEDOM OF SPEECH. Something the left coast and most democrats don't believe in; unless it their speech



    LOS ANGELES -- A poster showing President Barack Obama as Heath Ledger's "Joker" character from "The Dark Knight" is creating a stir on the streets of Los Angeles where the image began appearing over the weekend.

    The Obama-Joker poster shows President Obama with white face paint, dark eye shadow and smudged red lipstick and also has the word "socialism" printed in bold, dark letters under the image of his face.

    It's unclear who created the image and who is posting it across the city. No one has taken credit so far.

    Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson is calling the depiction, politically mean spirited and dangerous.

    Hutchinson is challenging the group or individual that put up the poster to have the courage and decency to publicly identify themselves.

    "Depicting the president as demonic and a socialist goes beyond political spoofery," says Hutchinson, "it is mean-spirited and dangerous."

    "We have issued a public challenge to the person or group that put up the poster to come forth and publicly tell why they have used this offensive depiction to ridicule President Obama."

    The poster has also gone viral online, crashing the website that first posted images of it and rising to the top of Google's "Today's Hot Trends" list.

    Well , well, well..... Don't really recall any outcry when President G.W. Bush was portrayed as anything from a chimp to the second coming of Hitler. Somebody puts a little make-up on a photo of the Messiah and it's" mean-sprited and dangerous". Give me a freaking break.

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

    Hey there, there are a few of us that don't identify with this. I know...I know...I need to move to Utah or at least out of CA. It figures that this article would come out of La La Land.
