Controversial Artist Depicts Obama Trampling The Constitution

Provo, Utah (CBS Las Vegas) – In front of the White House a man is sitting on a park bench in the throes of depression. He is surrounded by all 43 presidents. In the forefront, purposefully ignoring the depressed man is President Obama, whose right foot is stepping on the Constitution. James Madison is next to Obama, pleading with him to stop.

This tableau is called “The Forgotten Man”, a painting by Jon McNaughton, an artist who is known for his politically-charged work.

The painting, which uses objects such as discarded dollar bills as symbols and scraps of paper with individual constitutional amendments scrawled onto them, has been making the rounds across the Internet.

The painting was initially released in 2010 and has resurfaced, causing a stir when it appeared for a caption contest on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow’s blog.

The responses have ranged from sarcastic — “We’ll trade you this peasant for that constitution. We’ll even throw in the bench.” — to Photoshop works of art.

McNaughton released an accompanying YouTube screen share video for his painting. The video shows McNaughton painting the piece with a soundtrack that emulates a movie trailer.

“For a long time I didn’t know if I wanted to paint this picture, because I worried it might be too controversial,” McNaughton explains in a voice over. “(T)his man (on the park bench) represents every man, woman, and child who is an American… he hopes to find the American dream of happiness and prosperity.

“But now because of unconstitutional acts imposed by the American people by our government we stand on the precipice of disasters,” he added.

McNaughton explained his position behind the painting. “I don’t place all the blame on Obama. On my website I try to explain what each president has done,” he said. “The thing I like about the painting is that it does get people talking.”

The painting has done well since it was released. “It sold thousands,” he told CBS Las Vegas. “I sold many different sizes and editions, and now that we are in an election year I expect to sell more.”

This isn’t the first time McNaughton waded into politically charged waters.

Previously, he released “One Nation Under God,” a painting depicting Jesus holding the Constitution and judging several archetypes such as a liberal journalist, a smug college professor, and another archetype that McNaughton calls “Mr. Hollywood.”

Originally from Arizona, McNaugton currently lives in Utah. He received a full scholarship to Brigham Young University. Initially he studied art, but switched to design later on.

“I hope my work will create conversation and reach people on a deeper level,” he says on his website. “I like to use metaphor and multiple levels of meaning to reach my viewer. If it makes them think and feel, then it is successful.”

He later added to CBSLV: “I’m not trying to create an art style.  I want to communicate my ideas.  Isn’t that the purpose of art?”

    what no one seems to write about are the radical presidents behind Obama smiling and clapping. Obama is in the front because hes the current POTUS….

    • Sparky Nanook

      Very realistic depiction.

      • Jeanine Ruby

        oh honey….what are we do to with people who make up stuff? You can’t prove this – you people can’t prove anything.

        However, Obama has proven to be a successful leader and Commander in Chief. Our votes go to Obama.

      • Barry Levy


        He promised that with his stimulus package unemployment would not exceed 8% and that hasn’t happened. When you promise something and don’t deliver that is called failure.

        He has failed to uphold immigration laws, yet sue states for doing that work. Where I come from, if you can’t do something that is your job and somebody else bails you out, that is a failure and even worse that he has the government, that is we the people, suing the people.

        But he did promise that with his energy plans the cost of energy would skyrocket and I am reminded that he has proven to keep his word on that every time I get gas from my car, and the thousands of dollars that I have had to shell out because he was successful, is enough reason to remove this man

      • Mark Christopher

        Dear Jeanine,

        Why?? Haven’t you seen enough?? Do you hate your country?? I mean that in a nice way….

        Do you actually believe what you hear on the 5 o’clock news? You seem so misinformed…

      • samson

        Keep drinking that Kool Aid Jeanine…the only thing Obama has been successful at is the destruction of our country, bailouts that didn’t work, high unemployment, highest poverty percentage, more people on food stamps than ever before, solyndra scam, as bad as enron, the list goes on and on and on……

      • fgrey

        Sparky, you are more ignorant and probably as racist as he artist. Yes, this is America and one is entitled to their views and the stupids are the fair de jour for their like-wise massively short attention spanned audiences.

      • Rk Warren

        I don’t find the work objectionable, it is art and one mans opinion, nuanced or not. What continues to amaze me is the denial the conservative public embraces. Their ideology failed time and again and they still continue to read the same book. J.S. Mills once opined the not all conservatives are stupid, but most stupid people are conservative. I find this well expressed in most of the responses following herewith. This note will engender the usual Kool-aid, foolish and insipid comments. After the blatant failure of Mr Bush s presidency and the decent of the GOP into what it has become today, laughably inept but hateful. I no longer wish to discuss issues with the anonymous posters. They are cowards hiding behind a non de plume without backbone, knowledge or sense of history.

      • Duneflower

        Agree with both Kevin Groenhagen and stopthe below, with the addition of the other Roosevelt and the other father/son duo named John Adams, and an emphasis on W – I think he should be right up there with Obama.

      • Kevin Groenhagen

        It could be more realistic, esp. if Woodrow Wilson and FDR had their feet on the Constitution as well.

      • stopthe


        AND Lincoln, with his contempt for states’ rights. And every single president since Howard Taft, including Ronald St. Reagan, who is merely the most saintly of the 20th century villains.

      Yea, sorry your side’s so bad….too bad your candidates are such jokes.

      But yet you trash the only person in the ring who’s looking out for YOU.

      Obama will win his 2nd term and you all know it – we all know it. So go on and keep bashing Obozo and show us your true colors.

      Unleash! We need a good afternoon laugh!

      • Susan Gate

        Obumbler is not going to win election.. there is only 10 states and the district of columbia that give him above a 50% approval….
        All the other states gus aoproval is around 40% and lower.. look it up by googling gallop obama state approval jan 2012. Obama will lose in a landslide. Nov can’t come here fast enough to get rid of the worst President ever. Unfortunately the damage Obumbler has done will take a long time to repair.

      • RangerDan

        Your statement is way out of date. Look again!

      • Jeanine Ruby is a fool

      • Elaine

        THE ONLY way he will be in the WH again is the same way he got in the last time: Voter Fraud; and I have no doubt he will try to do it. But that is his only chance to get back in OUR WH.

      • Stephen Johnson

        You realize Obama is still funding ACORN. The only difference this time is ACORN is under a another name.

      • Right Is Wrong

        Voter fraud was of little to no consequence in the 2008 presidential elections, where it might have been much in play when George W Bush was declared president after Republican operative’s jackboot, thug intimidation at the Florida State Office entrusted to recount and inspect hanging chads. I find that Republicans take an isolated incident, e.g. the two Black Panthers (maybe) hanging out in front of one polling place. This is a classic Republican dirty trick tool–always create the illusion that there’s a huge problem and then hammer it home on Fox News over, over and over. Whether it’s the phony War on Christmas scandal, etc. Republicans find a way to distort the truth, dehumanize the opposition and spread their virulent form of propaganda. Currently, Republicans are trying to disenfranchise many legal citizen voters with laws that resemble Jim Crow laws, poll taxes and intimidation. You are the true enemies of democracy and you’re sore losers. Even if there was voter fraud from the boogeyman ACORN, whatever, it doesn’t even begin to compare with the way your side raises billions in secret money from corrupt corporations and criminal donors.

      • Right Is Wrong

        You realize that Republicans receive money from shady casino owners, the Koch Brothers, Big Oil, Big Pharma and Big Religion, right? You realize that Fox News, the propaganda arm of the Republican party, distorts the truth, plants stories and gives talking points to everyone on the conservative side. You realize that Republicans gave us Jack Abrahamoff and other corrupt lobbyists who peddle influence, mainly with Republicans to overturn laws that might help the average American? You know that Newt Gingrich was a lobbyist. You know that Mitt Romney “hides” his money in the Cayman Islands to evade paying taxes, etc. Tell me when you want to stop. I don’t need any lectures from your side about morality, ethics, etc. Your side has shown time and time that you’re NOT the party of Family Values, or any other kind for that matter.

      • Stephen Johnson

        Liberal, “open minded” CBS will no longer allow me to make comments to you. That, or you have block me. Otherwise, I have written you 4 times and nothing is posting.

      • Right Is Wrong

        Your WH? I am a registered voter and I voted for the President. I also got out the vote and walked hundreds of miles canvassing and meeting with voters. We were better organized and had a much better candidate than you. We won, fair and square. I had to sit through 8 years of former President Bush’s trampling of the Constitution and trampling of the Constitution. You can wait your turn or throw your vote away on Newt, Cain, or whoever the flavor of the month is. You blame everybody for your own shortcomings, except yourself. I did well under Bush, and I’m doing even better under Obama. I get up every day and work had. That’s all it takes, Elaine. So instead of thinking up you dim-witted little names for our president, perhaps you should apply yourself to your own career, business or education. You’re the typical Tea Party type–everyone else is to blame, never you for making poor life decisions. That’s all.

      • Elaine

        “OUR” WH…You aren’t the ONLY person who got out and campaigned. You are an extremely arrogant man just like YOUR fearless leader who is destroying OUR Country.

      • Right Is Wrong

        I am arrogant, or what Republicans call intelligent and superior. You can quote any statistics you like, but the fact remains that President Obama is the President of the United States. We won. You lost. I served with 100’s of dedicated volunteers and I ran into your type every day. You generally back down when confronted. You equate your hate and bluster with power. Most Americans can see right through it. Your candidates, if they win, will do nothing that benefits the majority of Americans. If you’re a millionaire or a billionaire, they’re your party. If you enjoy being ruled by the Religious Right, vote for them. If you win, I can guarantee you’ll be out come the next election. Republicans always mess up.

        Jeanine Ruby

        He attacked a foreign country WITHOUT congressional approval and never did let them vote on it. Say what you want about Bush, at least he let Congress vote on his war.

        He placed Czars in record numbers to avoid congress.

        He’s administration sold guns illegally to Mexican drug cartels under the operation “Fast and Furious” and has been playing cover up ever since. The reason for Fast and Furious was to build his case to take away the 2nd amendment right to Americans living along the boarder because too many guns were going across the boarder. When the facts didn’t show his case, he tried to flood Mexico with American guns and so far over 300 Mexicans have been killed by these guns and atleast 1 American Boarder Patrolman was murdered by such guns. Maybe you should do some research.

        I could go on and on, but for someone like as dense as you, you could witness the crime taking place and you would still not believe it.

      • David Wamsley

        Let’s see now , so called recess appointments comes to mind; Gun registration in the southern boarder states, Fast and Furious, which is the attempt to undermine our second amendment, resulting in the death of boarder agent Brian Terry and hundreds of Mexicans, the war involvment in Libya with out congressional approvel, Selective enforcement of laws past by a elected congree and signed by a setting president I am sure there are more.

      • joyce

        jeanine, how about the killing of american citizens by drones without due process? think, before you speak.

      • James

        Should we mention mandatory health care reform? Ok fine, I’ll pick another from this exhausting list, since you only asked for one:

        Czars: The moniker for appointees who report to no one but the president has taken on a new and eerie resemblance to the dusty Russian tsars of old. Article 2.2 grants the president leeway to appoint managers, but those managers may not have any regulatory, legislative or law-making powers — such powers are reserved to the legislative branch. Today’s “czars” have the power of cabinet members without having to go through a vetting process or the confirmation process prescribed for cabinet members. Czars are unelected and untouchable political decision-makers — in violation of Article 1.1

      • John

        how about resigning the patriot act

      • Frank Whyte

        @Jeanine, He signed the NDAA authorizing the indefinite detention of American citizens. This is in direct violation of the sixth amendment. He also authorized the assassination of Anwar Al-Awlaki, an American citizen, without due process of law. I would call both those unconstitutional. I voted for him and supported him but it’s important we be honest about the state of affairs in this country. Blind allegiance is not patriotic!

      • ER

        Wow, you people pin the blame for resigning the Patriot Act and singing bills passed by Congress all on Obama (he should have vetoes the NDAA). The rest of your cited examples have not been ruled unconstitutional. There is this thing called the Supreme Court that decides what is and isn’t constitutional, no all of you people. If you read the actual constitution, it is open to lots of interpretation. Take the second amendment. How many Militias are around these days, but the Supreme Court long ago decided that the text of the second amendment meant you could own any gun you want for any reason.

        Not another single example has been ruled unconstitutional, and therefore, your claims are your opinions (based on your years of legal study I am sure). The argument that all of these things Obama has allegedly done (even though many of them passed Congress) that are “unconstitutional” is ridiculous. Until the third branch of government (i.e. the Courts) decides, these things are not unconstitutional under current law.

        But this isn’t really about the facts, is it? It is about your unbridled political agenda.

      • jim

        There is still a Militia around that is in excess of 65 million Americans strong.

        The need for a strong militia is just valid today as it was at the time of the founding of our country,

        Americans can still be secure in the fact America still has a strong militia to keep brain dead people with an old tired failed ideology from destroying the greatest country this planet has ever produced.

        If the third branch of government continues prostituting our constitution, America still has fourth branch of government, the American Militia, to step in and put an end to the destruction of this great nation.

        Saving a great nation, What a beautuiful political agenda.

      • Right Is Wrong

        I am absolutely sick of hearing the whiny complaints of Tea Party, militia types, etc. President Obama we democratically elected as the President of the US. You may not like, it just as I didn’t like it when Bush was elected by the Conservative-leaning Supreme Court, but you didn’t hear me saying we should arrest the former president for treason, overthrow the elected government, raise militias, etc. I think at the core of it, Republicans, Conservatives, Tea Party folks or whatever are the true radicals and are dangerous to democratically-elected governments. If you don’t get your way, you threaten violence and other nastiness. You truly resemble the Nazis and other dictatorially regimes more than anything I’ve ever seen. My first vote ever was cast for President Ronald Reagan, a man who would be judged as “liberal” by the likes of you and your ilk.

      • lafe

        Don’t worry Jeanine, these tools don’t have a clue. The President NEVER said unemployment would be held below 8%.

        The bailout of auto companies is not against the constitution. If it was, Teabaggers in the House would be screaming for the Supremes to do something.

        The Affordable Heath care act is a moderate success, only lessened by stupid republicans efforts to derail it. These are the same cowards who were too scared (re. YELLOW) to allow terrorists to be tried in the US so Guantanimo was forced to remain open.

        I could go on and on about how republicans trashed the economy and left the next administratin to clean up the mess, but why bother? These morons still wouldn’t get it.

      First of all. I know the Great Great whatever Grandson of Sitting Bull. He will tell you he is AN AMERICAN INDIAN Not a native American.. Most other American Indians like to be called American Indian rather thennative American. Only the wacko American Indians who want to remove the great names of College or HS with a non Indian name. How many times have you heard of a college changing their sports nick name to something other then Cheif or Indian or Warrior of the like? In Ohio, Miami U on Oxford, Oh, changed their name from Miami Redskins to a safe name. It was after a unheard of until then tribe of Miami Indians , protested the nickname Indian.. They have since gone back in to the blackness of no one knowing where they are today. Other tribes protest , are offered MONEY to go away and they do..

        Muslim Inbreeding: Impacts on Intelligence, Sanity, Health and Society

        The religion of peace…the closer the blood relative, the more likely was there to be a schizophrenic illness.

        Massive inbreeding within the Muslim culture during the last 1.400 years may have done catastrophic damage to their gene pool. The consequences of intermarriage between first cousins often have serious impact on the offspring’s intelligence, sanity, health and on their surroundings

        The most famous example of inbreeding is in ancient Egypt, where several Pharaonic dynasties collapsed after a couple of hundred years. In order to keep wealth and power within the family, the Pharaohs often married their own sister or half-sister and after a handful of generations the offspring were mentally and physically unfit to rule.

      What’s funny is everybody’s blaming Obama.

      And yet we’re rooting for Romney (who said he would also have signed the NDAA) and Rubio (who voted yes to NDAA and sponsored SOPA.)

      Swapping the president’s (D) for an (R) doesn’t mean much these days.

      There’s one GOP candidate who is against all of this nonsense. You know who he is.

He will add more Czars who bypass Congressional approval and scrutiny, he will stuff Liberal/nonConstitutional judges into place, he will absolve term limits and be “President for Life” if ever given the chance. And–who can stand another 4 years of listening to all the lies and conspiracies he creates!

      • Big_Mack1

        Joejo said, “There’s one GOP candidate who is against all of this nonsense. You know who he is.”

        Yes, but unfortunately, the LameStream Media drove him out of the race about a month ago.

      • Eric N

        Who’s rooting for Romney? Me and nearly everyone I know is rooting for Ron Paul – the one who is against the nonsense.

      • upaces88

        Joe! I know! Even George Sorros said the same thing! Maybe they just watch the news and think they are getting it. The Media is shoving Romney down our throats.

      • Roger

        We’re not swapping joe, Obama’s going to get re-elected. Not saying I want it, but it’s gonna happen.

      • proudnot2bliberal

        Oh good God not another Rupaul nut! Ru is in agreement with odumbo on man issues!

        Ru blames America for 9-11 & other issues hes jimmy carter thinks we can just let the chips fall where they may. Gee let me ask if you next door neighbor was building a nuke plant in his backyard wouldnt you be a bit concerned? Ru & the paulettes arent! That speaks volumes

      • Don Kaag

        Doesn’t matter if Obama gets reelected so long as Conservatives increase their presence in the House and take the Senate from the Democrats. If that happens in November the Obama Administration will spend the next 4 years trying to stay out of jail and they will get zippo passed in the Legislature. I don’t think much of RINO Romney either, so I am focusing on the elections in the Congress.

      • tim thomerson


      • Ken Bowser

        yea, me. KENEMA. And Obama has been the most blatant. And to think he taught constitutional law.

      • ClapYo Hands

        Sure we do, Joejo. There is only one American candidate who is loyal in everything. Ronnie. Test yourself folks. Can you imagine the subject painting showing Ronnie stamping on our Constitution? See, it doesn’t woik. We know who is stamping on our Constitution, and the artist got that right.

        Awesome poem, my friend. Only an idiot could miss the truth of it. But…take no heart, as we have about a hundred million brainwashed idiots here in the USA, apparently. Spend one night watching TV and you will see where it comes from.

        Great poetry RJ, thanks. And so true. Funny thing about Truth. They can ridicule it, hurl insults at it, try to suppress it, and after all that work, there it stands.

        this might be the gayest thing I ever read…

        Not so fast Mr. O’Guillory! I bet charlie has read lots of gay stuff!!

      • ClapYo Hands

        Wowzer. Hope it slaps awake at least some snoozing Americans. Poor junior demons never had a chance to be anything else thanks to the empty, vacant of truth and morals society enabled by their parents and which Americans have watched “progress” like flipping magazine pages and then ignoring. Charlie, zombie like, brings in for comparison his reading experience which confirms the trash opportunities in our glossy society.

        I like it. Keep on with the truth. The truth is mighty and it shall prevail.

    • mark

      only one problem with the painting. barak obama is the 43rd person to hold the office of president but the 44th president. grover cleveland served as 22nd and 24th, meaning the picture should hold only 43 men

      • ClapYo Hands

        To Calvin Kenney, I agree. Don’t worry, we’re not through with those silver spoon goofs. Wheels of justice grind slow but exceedingly fine, and we want every lump of snot taken out of them. Ol Cheney gets so scared he runs to the hospital with heart probs to get cover and sympathy. Won’t work, fella. Bush doesn’t seem to be chopping down trees on his plantation since he left office, maybe hoping he can hide behind them. Wolfowitz gets booted from jobs and no one wants to be close to him because Americans are angry and will inflict Justice. All of those neocons and zionist anti-Americans are not out of range of American attention. Obummer is just one in the same and thinks his theatrical glares at the zionists will make us think he is not their pal. That’s all for today, folks! Have a good weekend everybody.

      • Mary Beth

        Doesn’t the man on the bench represent the people?

      • 50gary

        The man on the bench according to the artist is “The Forgotten Man” of the Great Depression. The artist has him representing the unemployed man of today, that is not how the phrase was originally coined and used, so this artist mis-named his painting. Actually during the Great Depression the Forgotten man was the man still working and paying all the taxes and bills. Everyone always feels sorrow for the poor down trodden man (as it should be) but the forgotten man was still working Mitt Romney. just mentioned the modern forgotten man, the middle man that still works and still pays his taxes. Mitt R. was misquoted (on purpose by many) when he said, I don’t worry so much about the poor they have the safety net the middle man does not.

      • Jeff Stone

        Barrack is the 44th President, no one is disputing Cleveland’s 2 non-consecutive terms…but Obama is still the 44th President in terms of proper numeration.

      • Jeff Stone

        Counting the actual presidents in the picture, lol, you people have way too much time on your hands.

      • James

        I counted them in seconds. It’s pretty easy. There are only 43 presidents pictured.

      • Wang Chung

        Who cares? Obama thinks there’s 57 states !!!

    • robert m. simon

      I think that it is very provocativd and accurate.

      • Benjamin

        Indeed art often imitates life. Obama has little respect for our Constitution. In an interview in 2002, he criticized the constitution for it being an instrument that specified what the government could not do to you, but lacked content specifying what the goverment could and should do for you. He is a totalitarianist, that believes the Government should control every segment of socdiety. If he remains in office our freedoms will continues to vanish. He is among the most corrupt presidents our country has ever had.

        You are right about one thing; he will be the greatest president ever in driving up the debt. Let see, so far to date, it is five trillion dollars, yep! he is by far the most spending president ever in history. We have a real winner in the white house.

      • Collin Jonn

        Apparently your mind has become delusional with the hope and change BS…..whenever obama speaks its nothing but lost hope and change for the worst.

        Yes, we are all illegal aliens Gabe. Plus the art has no resemblance to reality and Yankee Doodle comments are not correct. Was there a country to regulate migration when the Europeans arrive to North America? Was there a welfare system for illegals to parasite from taxpayers? So many imbeciles receive “multicultural” diplomas in the public education system that these days reasoning is a scarce commodity. Wait, logic is a product of western civilization why bother when logic equates cannibalism? We are in the times of multiculturalism, of relativism. How can I forget that?

        I don’t like Obama, but he won the last election. This November, I’ll vote again.

        Well the founders themselves were illegal immigrants. What constitutes illegal varies. does natural law not have a place in judicial law? That doesn’t mean that our founders were bad, they were doing what comes natural, dominating their environment using the tools that either evolved or were given to mankind. Blankets statements show why our nation is in such dire straights, there is not only a loss of intellectualism, currently there is a fad of anti-intellectualism going on. To state facts is called making a judgment, it is hating America, it is hating God, wanting poor people to die, you name it. It is everything but an honest discussion of how to save ourselves from ourselves. Thanks to talking head TV and talk radio our national politics has devolved into a sporting event where our team has to win even if it means the entire league and fans losing. I have hope for our Republic but it is going to get much worse before it get’s better I’m afraid. The days of Pax Americana are over, hopefully the days of Pax Sinica have not begun or God help us all.

    • Lee

      Hey Gabe Hernandez, so you think native Americans just sprung up out of the ground here? We all immigrated here, even “native” Americans immigrated here. Some “natives” arrived first, then other “native” tribes shifted and displaced the original tribes for many years. Do you think all nativie American Indians are the very same? Do you think all Asians are the very same? Do you think all hispanics are the very same. No, they are not. So the natives that Europeans met when they arrived were not even the first group to live on this land. There were even Europeans to arrive in North America way before Columbus. The “natives” that later Europeans met had displaced others that were here first. Europeans just did what the “natives” had been doing for centuries before them; they joined the crowd and moved in on this land just like all of the other “natives” moved in before them. Do you think the Aztecs were the first to live in Mexico Mr Hernandez??? NOPE! Your Aztec ancestors in Mexico conquered the other Indians in that place and took over their land. So the ancestors of the Mexican natives were not actually the original natives. It is very racist and bigoted of you to treat one group of people differently because you don’t like their white skin.

      • David L

        Correct the Red Dirt People existed here before the contemporary “Native Americans” they are also called Paleo-indians but don’t let reasoned thinking and fact keep you from hating the brown people.

      Well just because art provokes does not mean the message is good or even accurate. Leni Riefenstahl was one of the great directors of all time – having made “Triumph of the Will” for the Nazis….

      There are one or two other Presidents in the modern era that clearly overstepped their bounds that might be more appropriate in this painting. No doubt – for those who already dislike Obama – this simply helps fuel their anger – even if it is unwarranted that he appear this way in the painting….

      • JeffreyJ

        The message is very accurate, though not necessarily complete. Fact is, the constitution was trampled very much along the way. Roe v. Wade is an example. States rights have been obliterated. The Rico laws are another example.
        I think the painting is conveying a contemp and hatred of the constitution by Obama, more than anything else. Never has the office of the president been occupied by such a virulent anti-american in our history. Obama despises the constitution and would turn us into a place like a hybrid of his birth country Kenya and communist China if he could get away with it. The ideologue fool has got to go in November if we want to pass a nation on to our grandchildren.

        I’ve hated every president since Carter. Mostly because between their own inflation of the function and size of government, but mostly their UNCONSTITUTIONAL national policies. Now, when legislation is passed with the signature of the prez, that makes him personally responsible for it’s passage. He may not have drafted Obamacare, but he backed and signed it. He may not have drafted or even supported the NDAA BUT HE SIGNED IT!!!! Worse yet, he might have been entirely ignorant of it, but if he signs HR 3166, IT’S PASSAGE WILL BE HIS FAULT TOO! That is why we hate Obama! Not because he is black, not because he is a democrat, but because HE LIES, and (as a result of his ignorance, or an inherent lack of ability to perform his function as president) as we knew he would, has done a lot to harm the people of this nation.

        Unwarranted? Where have you been the last three years? Mars? Oh wait, because of Obama, we are out of the space program…..and have to catch a ride with the Russians.

        Over-stepped? He has not stepped on the Constitution, he is stomping it into the ground. He has bypassed congress with “executive orders” more times than I can even count. He has shoved this healthcare debacle down our throats, and appointed supremely biased justices to the highest court of the land, who advocated for the government, on behalf of the heathcare law before getting her LIFE LONG spot on the bench. Nothing unusual about that? He attacked Libya, with out the consent or the will of the people and congress behind him. He took over private industries, and actually told a private company where they can, and CAN NOT do business in America.

        How much more proof do you need, this painting is VERY WARRANTED, and that idiot will probably get four more years because the republicans are just as stupid.

        Best ticket in town would have be Col. Allen West, because unlike obuttmer, he ACTUALLY KNOWS about foreign affairs, and is not afraid to use the word “terrorists” or “islam” in a bad light, or in combination.

        VP should have been Cain, he has actually WORKED for a living, not been smoking pot, and organizing communities……….

        Unwarranted you said!!! One has to be deaf and blind and illeterate to be able to conclude it!

        We don’t need anything to fuel our anger. Obama is doing fine all on his own. so sorry I voted for him. won’t make that mistake again. Dont’ like Romney or Gingrich but they would both be preferable to Obama. I was a moron when I voted for him.

    • Maria-Erlinda

      Not only very likeable art, very accurate art also!

      And the message conveyed, that Obama is trampling on the Constitution should surprise no one; it was Obama who –publicly, in front of TV cameras– stated that the Constitution merely is “…a charter of negative liberties.”

      It’s Obama’s own words, and all the artist has done is jut put it graphically.

      Of course, Obama made acts follow his words; the violations of the Constitution Obama has so far perpetrated are evident and keep acceleratedly increasing in number, scope, breadth and impudence, as the main ones called to bring it to the Courts, the ones we have hired to do it in our name –the U.S. Congress– do nothing about it.

      The Democrat-controlled Senate is in the hands of Obama’s comrades; the Republican-controlled House is in the hands of RINOs, establishment Republicans and other spineless GOP specimens.

      Meanwhile, it has to be artists and other plain citizens the ones to bring the case to the attention of the rest of the American people.

      Thank you, Jon Naughton!

  • david

    The Truth has become controversy? Interesting. RON PAUL!

    • drainthesswamp

      So if Ron Paul gets elected we will have prostitution and drug use.

      That’s so shocking. All the hard work by the hordes of Federal/State/Local anti prostitution and anti drug which have kept us free of these social cancers will be for nought….

      LMAO at the numbskull Paul haters.

      The real reason for Rons hatred is his foreign policy which is despised by the Zionistas…

      • Nestor

        Do you honestly think we don’t already have drug use and prositution? What will change under Ron Paul is that the state will no longer be able to profit from these activities! Use your brains please!

      • Bryant

        How is the state profiting from prostitution and drugs? Won’t the difference be under Paul that if drugs and prostitution are legal they can be regulated and taxed and therefore made PROFITABLE to the state as opposed to a huge drain of resources to fight?

      • Upaces

        Amsterdam did what you are suggesting. They made prostitution and drugs legal. When that got out of hand, they implemented a program of “GIVING” those addicted to drugs FREE drugs.

        Amsterdam has now seen that the combination of drugs with Prostitution has brought their crime rate to an all time high; and they have corrected their mistaken policy.

        ANYTIME, you have drugs and prostitution, you are inviting:
        Human Trafficking;
        Crime including murders, violence will jump to an all time high due to “wanting” to own the prostitutes and “ALL” the drug trade.

        Please research the stats for yourself in France, etc.

        You know what cracks me up about Republicans is they always bash New York and New Yorkers, but right after 911, all they did was declare how much they loved New York and that we’re all in it together. It’s funny to see how they’re right back to their old ways of bashing New York, LA, San Francisco, etc. San Francisco gave you the computers, social media, etc. that you’re using right now. New York has given you Wall Street (big business) and LA produces all the movies and TV shows that you so love. I guess it proves when you’re so blinded with hate, that your ability to reason is severely impaired.

      • upaces88

        I haven’t seen anyone bash NY; however, I have seen people bash Bloomberg for selling NY out to the Muslims and CAIR.

        CAIR is now running the NY police dept. telling them how they should or should not train their officers to respond to the Muslim Community.

        They’ve made “Constitution”, “conservative” and “Christian” all equally toilet talk. I would say May God have mercy on their souls. But, I can’t right now. I’ll have to pray to God whom they deny for the grace to forgive them enough to be able to honestly pray for them rather than about them. Jesus said to pray for our adversaries. Only by God’s grace can you pray FOR your enemies.

      • Derrick Sexton

        David Still is the dope. Look at every speech Ron Paul has ever given, every word he has ever said, every thing he has ACTUALLY written, and it is obvious to all except the blind that this man wants equal individual liberties for ALL people, freedom for ALL. Justice for ALL. Those like David just haven’t used to brain power to look into the subject and instead think they are so cool and so smart for trying to sling mud on a white wall. Get informed, please, for the sake of all.

      • aubreyfarmer

        upaces88 We already have prostitution and the fact that drugs are illegal only makes drugs more profitable for the drug cartels and our CIA. Do you see any decline in drug use after the billions upon billions that have been spent on the so called war on drugs? You can not dictate nor enforce morality on people. Morality is a decision that each individual must freely choose for themselves. It is pathetic that there are those that think for society to function that we must have an all powerful government acting like our mommy and daddy. You either believe in individual liberty and personal responsibility or you don’t. My individual liberty guaranteed by the Constitution gives me the freedom to choose and does not rely on receiving permission from people like you for how I wish to live my life. You and millions of others are manipulated by the Jewish controlled media and consent is manufactured with the help of the sheep like yourself, which results in the loss of freedom for all. Who are you to tell me or anyone else how to live my life, when the way I choose to live has no negative results for your life? A government that promises you everything can also just as easily take everything away and often does so to coerce those they are suppose to serve into doing things that are against their best interests. You are ignorant, but I hope you aren’t stupid. Everyone needs to wake up and help the rest of us save our nation from tyranny. A very good place to start. http://www.iahushua.com/JQ/436quote1.html

      • The Classical Liberal

        Yes upaces88 , I do want to legalize prostitution and drugs.

        Much of the problem in both those industries is because it’s illegal. If alcohol was illegal and people were killing each other over beer; using kids as couriers because they wouldn’t be imprisoned – would you then say that legalizing beer and wine would be a silly, stupid idea?

        I’m not in favor of prostitution or drug addiction but … what exactly are we truly accomplishing by having it illegal. Could we not deal with the problem better if it was legal?

      • BRUTUS

        I wish before you say Ron Paul that you would read the Constitution, as for those of us that have we know that Paul is NOT a supporter of the Constitituion rather he believes in the Articles of Confederation which limits the Central government the way Paul would have it but NOT the way it is the the Constitution, read and be informed. I too like many of Pauls ideas save one on National security and defense and for eigh policy. We can’t live in a dangerous world wth our heads buried in the sand. Like it or not the world is a very dangerous place and we must be ever vigilant and prepared for the unknown for we do not know what we don’t know.

      • Amillennialist

        I’ve always admired Ron Paul for his defense of the Constitution.

        However, I cannot support him as Commander-in-Chief, since he’s stated his belief that if we leave Islam alone, it will leave us alone.

        Nothing is further from the truth. Islam exploded out of Arabia nearly one and one-half millennia ago and has since waged war against the non-Muslim world on the basis of universal, open-ended commands like “kill the pagans wherever you find them” (Qur’an 9:5).

        Paul’s position on jihad is essentially the Left’s: When Muslims attack us, it’s our fault.

        If you really believe that, then how do explain the Barbary pirates attacking American shipping just after the Revolution? (George W. Bush wouldn’t be born for another two centuries!) You historians will recall what Adams and Jefferson discovered when they asked our Muslim antagonists why they were attacking us, since we had done nothing to them:

        “In March 1785, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams went to London to negotiate with Tripoli’s envoy, Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman (or Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja). Upon inquiring “concerning the ground of the pretensions to make war upon nations who had done them no injury”, the ambassador replied:

        “‘It was written in their Koran, that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every mussulman who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise. He said, also, that the man who was the first to board a vessel had one slave over and above his share, and that when they sprang to the deck of an enemy’s ship, every sailor held a dagger in each hand and a third in his mouth; which usually struck such terror into the foe that they cried out for quarter at once'” (Wikipedia, First Barbary War).

        Obama says, “Respect Islam.” Paul says, “It’s our fault.” Romney says, “There’s nothing inherently violent about Islam.” Utter nescience (or worse).

        We need to fill the Oval Office — and the Congress! — with citizens who understand not only that government exists to protect our rights (not that we live as a resource for the State to exploit), but that while there may be moderate Muslims (google “taqiyya”), Islam itself is not “moderate.”

        So the vast right-wing conspiracy theory still lives. Look at it this way. If Mr Obama has the right to enact an HHS rule, a conservative president will have the right to outlaw-by-rule-not law the same insurance coverage and more. Do you really want that kind of government? Government by who paid off the president last to get what they want? That is why this needs to be stopped now.

    • Moosemiester

      Nice troll comment johnsta but the facts are that Obama has taken everything GW did and doubled down. Three examples:

      Obama now has the right to arrest anyone, anywhere, and hold them indefinitely.

      Obama assassinated an American citizen without a trial.

      A Democratic super majority not only renewed the Patriot Act, they made it stronger.

      • Upaces

        What deeply concerns me? He has twisted the Patriot Act to the point that “HE has the capacity within him” to arrest a citizen for disagreeing or protesting against him.

        There was a Protest in D.C. that was “NOT” allowed on You Rube and the Media was NOT allowed to cover it. I know because a friend of my family called me about it. She was shocked because they were NOT violent…it was a simple protest with signs — and without being loud and rowdy.

        Our “boy” is the President of the United States.

President Obama can’t win with you folks. If we stay in Iraq you complain. If we leave because we’re honoring an agreement made by former President Bush, you complain. By the way, if Bush had actually acted during his 8 years against Iran, our current president wouldn’t have inherited yet another mess. You act as if the previous 8 years and the Bush Administration’s policies had no effect and they ended as soon as the president took office. Conservatives always act from emotion, superstition, hate and a complete indifference to facts, science, logic or history. If you can distort, utilize lies of omission or rewrite history all together, you always do.

        RT, you memory is short. Have you forgotten the botched response and ignorance by Obama during the BP oil spill? Gov. Jindahl was BEGGING Obama for Fed help and received silence!!!!! Basically, there was NO response from Obama.

        As far as wars go, Obama took military assets over to Libya. After 90 days he refused to get the approval of congress, which is a courtesy and required. Obama believes he is a King. The MSM has been quiet, but the British press is reporting the ongoing civil strife in Libya….great job ZERO!

        Obama washed taxpayer money on a risky investment (as he was advised by the DOE, that is was!) into Solyndra….that failed and all taxpayer money lost.

        Or what about Fast & Furious? Having the ATF sell guns to the Mexican drug cartels so that you, Obama & Holder, can lie to the American people and say that the U.S. is also responsible for the violence in Mexico (as said by Obama with Pres. Felipe Calderon standing by his side on the WH lawn two years ago.) One of our border patrol agents was killed with one of those weapons.

        Obama is a BIG FAT ZERO…and he and skinny rear will be out of the Peoples House come Nov. 2012.

      I took a plane when GW Bush was president and I didn’t have the TSA scanning me or patting me down. That is BO’s doing. He also dramatically EXPANDED the Patriot Act. BO promised to repeal it.

        The problem is that the bad guys dramatically expanded their efforts. During Bush years, bad guys weren’t shoving explosive in their underwear or up their ass.

      If you would look, the artist has George Bush place on the opposite side of the Founding Fathers and the presidents who were conservative and who upheld the Constitution. GW is placed among the liberal presidents and right behind Obama. The aritist knew very well the failings of this man.

      • davec

        yeah I noticed that, with his back to them. The meaning is clear.

      • HansJurgen

        Nope, he placed Bush in the “recent” president position. In fact, if I were the artist, I would have had Bush raise his middle finger at Obummer, but then that wouldn’t accurately represent Bush since he has more integrity than Obummer.

    • johnsta is clueless

      How do you know what his views were on Bush? And I would ask the same question of you – are you concerned that Obama has pretty much kept doing what Bush was doing? I’d guess no because you are a democrat. Pathetic.

      And Bush didn’t destroy the constitution. Quit with the hyperbole. The warrantless wiretapping in effect is constitutional and severely restricted. And you have no right to fly on a commercial airplane without being checked for security reasons. I have no idea what executive orders you are referring to and I doubt you do either. I guess you’ll need to go look at a left wing website to get more information…

      • James G

        Just for he record… What part of the Constitution gives the federal government the right to grope citizens who want to travel? Many of those “gropes” would get you arrested if you did it to another person– especially a child.

        This is not about security. TSA has never apprehended anyone, they fail every test they are given, they steal from our luggage, and they are the ones who are almost always responsible for airport security shutdowns– because they leave their posts, or leave doors unlocked, or just don’t pay attention.

        TSA was foisted upon us to relieve airlines of liability– not to protect us. TSA is an amateur hour collection of otherwise unemployable misfits. If you think you are safer– think again.

        I’m with you on admiring Mr.Naughton’s work and wanting to raise awareness of his artistry. McNaughton’s images provides a stark, compelling illustration of how we as Americans were beguiled four years ago and how important it is that we “don’t get fooled again”.

        I would hope that you and all others who are moved by McNaughton’s work will respect the essence of our free enterprise economy. A truly evocative artist is rare and should be fairly compensated for his work.

        If you’re going to buy a wallpaper jpg since it is of higher resolution than a basic screen grab and therefore more suitable for desktop reprinting, and you don’t have the decency to ask the artist for permission to steal 20 copies of his work, at least don’t brag to us all about your “patriotic” larceny. Your copyright infringement, also known as “theft” sets a bad example for your children and their friends.

    The painting when viewed in real life (a reproduction) is striking in its accuracy, power, and clarity. This artist has done a wonderful job of showing just what the Monster Obama is up to…. jams down churches throats that they must hand out contraceptives, hires 150 leftist, bolshevik “czars” to make policy outside of the constitutional processes, issues books and books of regulations on industry with no conressional process, involves the USA militarily with Libya with no Congressional authorization, says he’s not going to enforce the law of the land DOMA, changes military policy toward gays by kingly order instead of involving the citizens of this nation, and he’s about to give amnesty to illegal invaders by kingly order, and he’s said he will go around congress on budget. This guy is a monster and should be impeached today, even though he has 11 months and 2 weeks to inflict damage.

        Recently, Hillary Clinton’s campaign has picked up on this charge. In a March 27 conference call with reporters, Clinton spokesman Phil Singer claimed:

        Singer (March 27): Sen. Obama has often referred to himself as “a constitutional law professor” out on the campaign trail. He never held any such title. And I think anyone, if you ask anyone in academia the distinction between a professor who has tenure and an instructor that does not, you’ll find that there is … you’ll get quite an emotional response.

And didn’t Obama double the number of deportations of illegal immigrants? And aren’t churches exempt from the birth control thing and it’s only for universities and other organizations that take federal money? And didn’t that Libya thing work out pretty well with zero dead and way less than 1% of the cost of Iraq?

      Obviously people can disagree with Obama, but I feel like you might be being a little histrionic.

      • Hugh K

        Well, let’s correct a few misconception – Where to begin? We’ll skip over DOMA and gays in the military. Virtue in our society has sunk to such depths, what is the point of pointing fingers on that matter?
        Moving along…..Deportation – Obama recently bypassed Congress (he seems to do that a lot – does’nt that concern you?) via DHS instituting a new rule halting deportation of all illegal immigrants on a case by case basis. And we all know how swift the courts operate.
        Churches are not exempt from the birth control ‘thing’? Under Obamacare, religious employers are forced to provide birth control coverage to their employees – something the Catholic Church among others are challenging vigorously. Ironically, these are the same religious organizations originally supported Obamacare – now we know why Nanny Pelosi told us we would have to pass the Bill to know what is in it.
        Libya worked out well? For who? Just last week in Gadafi’s former stronghold of Bani Walid its inhabitants staged an uprising. They overran guards at the main prison, where growing numbers of their friends had been detained, and ejected pro-government forces from the town, killing at least four of them. Thousands of men have been dragged away across Libya in the past few months to prison and in many cases torture, in some cases for revenge just because they came from a town that was pro-Gaddafi during the war. The United Nations and human rights groups accuse militias of doing what Gaddafi’s torturers used to do, with whips, chains and plastic hoses. Yeah, Libya worked out real well. Where is the same concern now hysterically displayed in the recent past for Iraqi civilians? Hypocrites.
        A simple google/bing search will confirm all of the above.
        Histionic or truthful?
        The real question is why would you support a President that tramples the constitution appointing czars and bypassing congress in a multitude of ways? If it was Bush would you be so apologetic? Keep in mind that their will be another President after Obama – might be a right-winger that will invoke this precedence set by Obama and trample the rights of those whose ideology you agree with. And remember that person can invoke Presidential precedence. Be careful what you wish for.

I may use the word insane to describe people who are deluded or appallingly ill-informed, but even if I really thought they were clinically insane I don’t think they should all be rounded up, imprisoned, or exterminated, so it seems fairly unpersuasive that the inevitable conclusion of my mindset is a violent fascist religious army that will persecute and exterminate all who disagree.

        You however, really seem to believe that people who disagree with you are violent fanatics who intend to oppress and persecute you.

        Now in all honesty, don’t you think the distance between your point of view, and violence against people who disagree with you looks a whole lot shorter?

        Hi Bobsled,

        I read most of your manifesto verbatim elsewhere on the thread, so it wasn’t really necessary to copy/paste it here.

        Honestly, it seems like the raving of a mad person, I know you think I say that because I want to avoid addressing the substance of your post, the problem is there is no substance to address. Your description of what I, or any other progressive wants, or believes is cartoonishly absurd and based on nothing but you wanting to imagine the worst of people you disagree with.

        You say that what I think is basically religious belief, and then in the same sentence state that facts aren’t important to you.

        Well, I have defended all of my points with facts, and none of you have even tried to dispute them. I would humbly suggest that you are the one whose view of the world is religious in nature, since it is clearly based on what you want to believe, and not factual evidence.

        As far as me not even trying to understand the viewpoint of those I write off, I have given you all an opportunity to dispute my points and the response has been to call me a stupid idiot with my head in the sand, and leave all of my points unaddressed. If you want me to understand your viewpoint you need to give me more than that.

      • bobsled

        LB 22, your entire discussion is a religious argument. The facts really don’t matter, they are not the point. If it were, you would honestly attempt to understand the viewpoints of those you so easily write off. You have a religious world view that requires you to ridicule anyone with whom you disagree. You label them as ‘insane,’ or ‘paranoid’ because it makes it easy for you to deal with their view points. You are a violent religious fanatic.

        In your mind, and in the minds of others like you, it is perfectly acceptable to have a juvenile emotional response to very reasonable objections. Pretty soon, you, and others like you will project your issues on those with whom you disagree and respond to them as you believe they would respond to you. You will find it very easy to justify your violence because in your mind, ‘those
        people are insane and they deserve what I give them.’ The ultimate end of your argument is the religious persecution of all heretics who disagree with you. In reality, you are projecting your insanity and paranoia on others. It is impossible to have any meaningful discussion with you and with others like you.

        what is really scary about people like you is that you are a religious zealot. True insanity is found with the religious zealot believers of progressive socialism who assume that their ritualistic creed should be self evident to all men, women, and lifeforms inhabiting Earth. Their liturgy requires the entirety of mankind, (or womankind, etc.), to conform to their fervent belief that humankind can become perfect, if only they would convert to their confession of faith and
        let self proclaimed high priests of progressive socialist elites, be they so called scientists or elitist politicians or other experts in their respective fields, dictate to the world what is acceptable in the eyes of the mother earth goddess they claim to worship. The fanatics of progressive thought don’t understand when reasonable people do not genuflect and become breathless in the presence of holy ones of progressive socialist environmentalist doctrine.

        These progressive fanatics are intolerant of any disagreement from heretics and would violently constrain freedom of speech. Ultimately, the devotees of the new world order would set themselves as thought police and take it upon themselves to become the fascist army.

        This fanaticism, this new totalitarian state mind is scary. The lies they swallow are laughable. They strain really hard not to swallow gnats of improper believe while swallowing lies the size of camels and elephants whole. They are entitled to be fools. That is their choice. They just cannot handle the fact that others refuse to become fools with them.

        Lets come to an agreement. You are free to follow your foolish whims. Grant those who don’t want to drink you Kool-aid the freedom to pursue their own happiness. How about minding your own business and let everyone else protect their own self interests?

        The “gradual adjustment” comment was hardly a campaign promise, and its not exactly clear from the clip that he thinks they should go up, merely that he prefers they be gradual than sudden. And since it is pretty much inevitable that they will go up over time, which would you prefer, gradual or sudden? You’ve already indicated you are against gradual.

        A quick search showed that 2001 was the highest year for oil production in the US since 2003, the exact opposite of “working overtime to decrease production”, and number 7 in the list of easily disproven conservative fictions.

        In a broader sense, the gas price issue is an interesting one, because it reveals how hollow conservative’s idiot ideology is. Evidently any government interference with private companies or free markets is outrageously tyrannical, except when it comes to oil. In that case conservatives seem to want government to force companies who produce oil domestically to sell only to Americans, at a reduced price, rather than selling it on world markets, where supply and demand will determine the price.

        As far as your other points go, over three years the federal civilian workforce has expanded by less than half a percent, which is slower than population growth. Not exactly evidence of an out of control expansion of government.

        Obama certainly campaigned on a promise of healthcare reform. He may not have talked about mandates, but since he had yet to negotiate the bill with congress, he wouldn’t know what exactly would be in it.

        I’m not a constitutional scholar, my association with the fifth amendment is the right to refuse to testify in a court of law if it might incriminate you. You will have to point out where it says something about wealth distribution. I would point out though, that Republicans are all for wealth distribution, they just believe in using government to transfer wealth from the poor and middle class, to the mega-wealthy.

        I’d keep picking apart your arguments, but I’m sure you get the trend, and have already concluded that none of your points will withstand scrutiny, and I have to take my son to the park now.

        lb 22 wrote: “Also, I don’t recall Obama ever campaigning on a platform of raising gas prices through the roof, so lets make that number six on the list of delusional beliefs.”

        Obama was asked if he thinks rising gas prices are a good thing and he stated “I would have preferred a gradual adjustment.”

        And he’s been working overtime to decrease production in this country, his propaganda notwithstanding.

        Of course, he naturally didn’t “campaign” on it. He’s a lying fraud. He knows the people would reject his agenda if he had campaigned on it. He didn’t campaign on a health care mandate, either, claiming that forcing people to purchase health insurance would be like trying to solve homelessness by forcing people to buy a home.

        He DID campaign on “fundamental transformation” and I’ll let a genius like you figure out what that means. Hint: He’s been working over time to swallow up the private sector and expand the size, reach and power of the government. That is hardly advancing the constitutional principle of limited government.

        He also stated that “when you spread the wealth around, I think that’s a good thing for everybody.”

        “Spreading the wealth” is not part of his constitutional mandate, either. In fact, we have a fifth amendment preventing it.

        And he’s been an absolute imperialist, with his executive orders, czars, bureaucratic mandates and insistence that if “Congress doesn’t do what he wants, he’ll do it alone.”

        Hence, the picture. And its accuracy.

        OK, now go back to sucking your thumb and sticking your head deeply in the sand.

        Wow redstate, you sure give up easily. You didn’t even try and dispute one point on my list. Are you sure the cognizant dissonance you perceive is not your own, as you realize you can’t actually find any evidence to support your beliefs?

        TO lb22 re: you list: Clearly, sir, you believe that cognitive dissonance is something to be prized.———– That said, I’d say that 69 million or so of the electorate allowed themselves to be deluded that Obama actually meant anything he said while campaigning.————Well, actually, he did in some cases: driving fossil fuel prices through the roof comes immediately to mind.———-This is it for me, with you.

      • Right Is Wrong

        Gas prices continue to rise for a variety reasons: 1. Global demand. 2. Market speculation. 3. Geoglobal unrest, specifically in the mideast 4. Strength of other currencies used to purchase oil 5. Use in plastics, paints and numerous household and industrial items.

        I always thought that Republicans are free market capitalists, yet the forget that oil is one of many commodities traded on the global market. If you don’t like how high oil prices are, perhaps you should get a more fuel efficient car, quit driving so much, switch to a hybrid, etc. Blaming Obama for oil prices is ridiculous. Don’t forget that Exxon Mobil and BP had record profits. I own both, plus Slumberger and Occidental. See just another wealthy Democrat making money in the stock market.

        take a breathe, get down off your hind legs, and then type. You won’t come across like you are so insane.

        Redstate, I don’t think I have time to type twenty, but I’ll do what I can based on comments I’ve seen on this thread alone.

        1. Obama is gonna take away our guns. (name one piece of legislation that has even been discussed that aims to limit gun ownership)
        2. Obama is going to round up all the christians and put them in concentration camps. (Again, evidence?)
        3. Obama is a marxist communist fascist. .(Name a single policy he has proposed or enacted that wasn’t supported by a major repub previously)
        4. Obama wants to eliminate private ownership (????)
        5. Obama wants to bring in Sharia law (how can this be described as anything but paranoid delusion?)

        Yes, you do seem to be out of touch with reality. Google “45 Communist goals Congressional Record”, “Psychopolitics” and go to http://www.cpusa.org.www. yclusa.org and http://www.plp.org.

        Obama is completing the ambition of communist Russia long after it fell. Unfortunately the moles sent into Europe, North America, the Middle East and SE Asia after WW II are in full bloom.

        That is a ‘rich nugget of insight’ coming from a religious zealot of the progressive socialist environmentalist doctrine. You really believe that If only the world were able to see the truth in your religion and make the elitist socialist environmentalist holy people dictators for life, then humankind would approach perfection.

        The tone of your insightful response says otherwise. Not knowing what to do with reasonable people who refuse to be come fools with you, you provide a diagnosis for which you are not qualified to prescribe. The fallacy in your whimsical notion is that while you have the right to be a fool, you cannot make another become a fool with you. You are to be pitied; you cannot help it. You want to be deceived and you must hear these lies constantly so that you can sleep at night.

      The difference is that during Bush years, bad guys weren’t shoving explosive in their underwear or up their ass.

      • lb 22

        The worst terrorist attack in American history was during Bushes term, that was followed by a wave of anthrax attacks, then the shoe bomber. Have you just decided to forget all of that, or do you remember, but feel that the underwear bomber is so much worse, because underwear is naughty?

      • James G

        What does that have to do with anything? Besides, you don’t know what the bad guys were doing. We only know about the underwear bomber because some morons let him get on a plane– after the guy’s own father warned us about him.

        We should never have heard about the underwear bomber– our intelligence agencies knew about him and should have dealt with him before he ever got near a plane, let alone on one flying into the USA.

      • lb 22

        Redstate, what is wrong with you?

        As I already explained once, my comment was purely in response to what Ted Knight said here:
        “The difference is that during Bush years, bad guys weren’t shoving explosive in their underwear or up their ass.”

        I merely pointed out how obviously false this statement is. I made no judgment about how capable or inept Bush was on terrorism. If you want to get into an argument over that, go ahead, but based on how incapable you are of actually reading and comprehending someone else’s position, I don’t think I’ll join you in that.

      • Cka Redstate America

        To Ib 22: What a foolish juvenile comment you made re: terror attacks on Bush 43’s watch.———–But if you’re going to play that Democrat/progressive/liberal/leftist tripe about 9/11 occurring on Bush’s watch and the other things, then chew on this: Were it not for Bill Clinton’s “serve them with legal papers” approach to combating terrorism — actually, he lacked the stones to call it that — and that includes the first bombing of the WTC, the U.S.S. Cole and the embassies in Africa, to name a few — the stage would have not be set for what unfolded in Bush 43’s term.———Oh, yes: The shoe bomber did not originate from the U.S. His flight originated in Paris.———-The underwear bomber’s flight originated in Amsterdam.———- I’ll just spitball it here, but seems the French and Dutch dropped their end of security.———-And given that both bombers had al-Qaeda training, did you ever think that what they did was simply a test to see if they could execute the plan and innocents.———But, per usual, facts are just hindrances to you Democrats/liberals/leftists/progressives who appear so frequently to be so obviously intellectually and morally bankrupt.

      • Right Is Wrong

        Al Qaeda determined to attack US. Saudi Arabians learning how to take off, but not how to land. Face it–inept leadership caused 911. It had nothing to do with former President Clinton. Weak logic and further proof that Republicans are incapable of accepting responsibility for anything.

        Noel, I realize that terrorist attacks happen under every president. That was exactly my point in responding to Ted Knight, who, while great in Mary Tyler Moore, seems to think that terrorist attacks began under Obama.
