Seriously? did anyone ACTUALLY believe George Bush couldn`t read? no yet the second some complete bullsh*t comes out about Obama not being a citizen that was some completely false conservative bullsh*t propoganda everyone hops on it like Jenna Jameson. F*CK YOU CONSERVATIVE ASSES!

    I really think it`s a little racist to be saying that anything you do and say that isn`t complete praise of the president is racist. Seriously, some people are preocuppied with race. Get over it. The whole point of this is because Obama`s a "jokeer", meaning he isn`t who he says he is and his rhetoric is different than his actions. That`s it, it`s not saying "omgz, black peoples sux!!"

    It`s pretty funny. No worse than the multitude of Bush posters, so I don`t wanna hear any complaints.

    I like how the liberal blog voluntarily brings up Fox News. Do they not realize that they`re just playing into Fox`s hands? I bet half their viewership just watches because they hate it and now people are gonna watch Fox News to hear their reaction. Idiots.

    "I really think it`s a little racist to be saying that anything you do and say that isn`t complete praise of the president is racist. Seriously, some people are preocuppied with race."

    Hey, Obama is half-white/half-black so he should be fair game for anyone. It`s not like he even grew up among African-Americans. He was basically raised white by white grandparents and doesn`t share in the slave legacy because his black father was directly from Africa so he can`t relate to the black experience that the descendants of slaves share. Michelle is his only tie to that.

    "The only thing missing is a noose" WTF - this poster is in no way a racial statement. That noose comment is completely idiotic. I am not down with most conservative exploits but criticizing the president is free speech and we need critics for an chance at an honest gov`t - if there is such a thing.

    Hopefully, Americans also have figured out by now that the Socialist ideology Obama and his political ilk subscribe to so wholeheartedly has a number of pre-manufactured beliefs attached to it; these would include anti-Christianism, anti-Americanism, anti-Capitalism, anti-Caucasian racism, Islamic supremacism, and others.
    -------------------------------------------------
    yup thats an exact quote from the website of the people that made this poster. These people are idiots. You may not like Obama`s policies and views but really? So many things are wrong with this statement its ridiculous. While reading this I was literally waiting for a "white power" at the end of each sentence

    eh, I don`t think its that bad, there were way worse things about bush... and way funnier things too. Lots of people aren`t going to agree with Obama... but at least he`s trying... If you walked into to a job where the entire company was going to be destroyed and someone says "here fix this" would you take the job? probably not, but he was willing to try and help get America back on it`s feet.. so we`ll just see how it pans out.

    Oh for petes sake Obama is no where near the left, let only socialist in thoughts or actions. Like almost all Americans, his either a centrist or right wing. And so far he`s played to the center in pretty much everything he has done so far. The US needs to get a grip, cause if they don`t, they`ll be just like 1930`s Germany. And anyone who`s read history knows where that lead.

It`s much simpler in Britain. "Gordon Brown is a tosser, all politicians are liars, we don`t really care who gets elected" is the general idea.

    that is why in this country we still have the power to hold our politicians feet under the fire and that is why we the people can stall something like government takeover of health care simply by speaking our minds. i wish you guys had the kind of power we still do. unfortunately we are headed your way.

    Oh and by the way, the united States IS NOT a free market, its a regulated corporate controlled market. Any and every country the has tried or forced to implement a `free market` has failed.
    The Americans have alot free trade agreements, but but free market, that is a myth. Much like the greatest danger to the US come from else where, when it will really come from with in. Since all of the US`s current crop of "enemy`s" are CIA creations.

    Yes indeed, WTF are you talking about? Dave letterman was torn to shreds and forced to apologize, not so so far with this poster.

    Seriously, WTF?

    Are you suggesting we punish people we agree with more than those who we don`t? If anything it is the perfect example of the opposite of your beliefs.

    Well done. From now on, rather than have me argue with you, why not just type out why you believe something, and that will suffice as my argument.

    Wait, Bush kills 60`000 civlians, and starts 2 wars, you paint a picture of him and ask why we don`t object.

    Obama tries to fix your failing economy, failing healthcare system, failing country, as his "great sins" and painting a picture is deserved?

    Not to mention, whilst I don`t recall liberals complaining about the Bush as Joker picture, I do remember Republicans bitching like they were being told to bitch at gunpoint.

    Bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch bitch, pausing only to call liberals bitchers, cry summore, and go back to bitching.

    this is the part, where you bend over, and take what you`ve been dishing out for 8 years, instead of only crying hypocrite the half the time it applies to 2 dems in a room.

    Bitches.

    Also, yes, the Joker is not a Socialist, as I doubt his first thoughts are regarding economic organization advocating state, public or common worker ownership. He`s clearly an anarchist, and not even a socialist anarchist at that.

    The link`s comments section draws many parallels between Obama and Joker to try and demonstrate how they`re the same, but those comments are made by idiots.

    I`m sorry Baalthazag I can`t understand you with all that punch in your mouth. Please swallow and get back to me when it wears off. Releash your anger and look at the situation from an untainted viewpoint.

    I won`t even begin to go into the history lessons about what the current government is doing wrong and why. Everything is not a crisis, everything cannot be solved through the use of spending excessive amounts of money and entitlement programs have a low level of efficacy and a significant drain on governmental budgets. You`re guy has done nothing yet to help anything but sepnd money and apologize. We still have two wars and prisoners in Gitmo. The economy`s key indicators are increase in spite of the massive and crippling ARRA, the auto manufacturers weren`t aided by bailouts as much as buyouts and bankruptcy courts, the medical "reform" will change medicine but I doubt for the good and our national debt will now be 23 trillion within the next ten years

    BTW lukas1051, this guy is most likely going to pan out as a tosser too. And I would agree that politics is the second oldest profession and bears a sdistinct resemblence to the first (tip of the hat to Ronnie).

    As far as the picture, I think Noam Chomsky said it best: "The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum."

    "It has a bit of everything to appeal to the drunk tank of California conservatism: Obama is in white face, his mouth (like Ledger`s Joker`s) has been grotesquely slit wide open and the word "Socialism" appears below his face. The only thing missing is a noose."

    Oh. My. God.

    Baalthazaq, your an idiot.. republicans have not `dished` anything out for 8 years in the way of bitching and griping.. it has been liberal democrats who have been bitching for the past 8 years.

    Also, it is my opinion that Obama is destroying our economy more than it has been.. ever. He has already spent more than my great great great grandchildren can possibly pay back.

    Baal you have a seriously screwed up view of government. It`s not something that is supposed to be used to "dish it out" at the "opposition." The government is supposed to protect its citizens rights.

    And btw, Obama has not ended the war in Iraq. He`s only continuing the timeline that Bush had already set in progress for withdrawal. Bush scheduled the withdrawal of US troops from Iraqi cities a few weeks ago, not Obama.

    And guantanamo? Yeah Obama is figuring out that it`s easier said than done. For one thing no US states want the prisoners in their backyard. So Obama has to plead with our allies to take 1 or 2 of them. He`s already pushing back his own deadlines on it.

    Not to mention the fact that his populist promises of no taxes for anyone under $250,000 is breaking down day by day.

    elkingo:

    BUSH is the one who destroyed this economy, not Obama. You wanna talk about who has put this country trillions upon trillions of dollars into debt? It`s your beloved Bush, that`s who. This country was doing well when Clinton left office, then Dubya came along and decided to f**k everything up to fight his daddy`s war with Saddam and start a "war on terror". It`s BUSH who is invested in oil companies and made millions when the rest of us were spending at least $4/gallon to fill up our cars. It`s BUSH who ruined many of our alliances with other countries, and it`s BUSH who helped ruin this economy with his war. Now Obama has to spend years picking up the pieces, and unfortunately it`s going to get worse before better.

    Take a look at Bush and what he did before you start criticizing Obama, who hasn`t even been President for a full year.

    It`s easy to be a socialist if you don`t have a job.

    If you want the government to run your life, then yeah socialism is great. Personally, I don`t trust the government. It`s funny how a group of people who hate the government so much want it to run their entire existence.

    slugs: this country was in dire need of change, and for better or worse, the government stepped in to change what was happening. Maybe it will get better, maybe it won`t. Maybe this country is going to Hell in a handbasket and nothing the government does will change it...who knows? All I know is, people were sick and tired of the Bush administration and what they were doing (or not doing), and so wanted to change things up. Change is here, so now we have to see how it goes.

    I wonder why people spit on socialism as if you believed in it you are wrong or evil. Isn`t that restricting political freedom in the land of the free. It is also in my opinion that Obama is far from socialist since actual socialists say he is not even close to being a socialist. You may disagree but I am not one to debate over the internet I am just giving my opinion.

    i dont get it... what does joker have to do with socialism? joker wanted anarchy, are they trying to imply that obama will cause anarchy by turning america socialist? even assuming obama wants socialism, he doesnt want it because he thinks it will cause anarchy.
    at best (for this poster and its creator) obama wants socialism and will succeed in creating anarchy
    joker wants anarchy and failed at creating it
    there is absolutely no link between the 2 even in a world where everything is how the republicans say it is.

    this is just another failed attempt by the republican party to try to get younger voters by clinging to some random reference to a movie from over a year ago.

    Then again, I`ve never actually watched any Batman stuff, so I have no idea whether the Joker represents socialism or anything.

    Ignore me. I`m rambling.

    I`m not saying socialism is a good thing, but most of the people screaming socialist are really just mad because they might have to pay a few more taxes in the future.

    Besides that, socialism isn`t about the government running your life, it`s about the government running business. Now if business is your life then sure, but most people just work for a living.

    Currently - unregulated corporate mega-conglomerates run your life and control the government. don`t think so? try doing ANYTHING or going ANYWHERE without huge megacorp involvement.

    REAL socialism - The government nationalizes part or all of all corporations, rations all products of all companies in order to create an economy based around the control of those products. You want to see real socialism taking over, look at Venezuela, Chavez has nationalized EVERY exportable resource in order to control the country`s economy. THAT is socialism, not a stupid tax hike.

    Socialism doesn`t happen all at once. Piece by piece.

    You don`t have to take my word for it; look at the recent youtube vids of Barney Frank talking about single payer healthcare, or Obama talking about same.

    They want a single payer system. Period. If you say otherwise, you`re either ignorant or a liar.

    First off, it is very true that this is a mediocre attempt for a political poster.

    TehKitteh:

    Just for the record i agreed with a lot of your points, but Obama has spent more than any other president previously. If Bush hadn`t started the war over in Iraq, the war would have been started by terrorists on our ground, even worse for the country, yes? The reason there seems to be such better terms among our alliances is because of Obama`s apologizing and compromising ways. (Much like the Europeans; As much of a good ally as Britain is, they`re generally compromisers.) I hate political flame wars, but I had to get that out, no hard feelings. :-)

    Also, SuperSmash, I agree wholeheartedly with that statement.

    I`m not one for all these words and governing systems, is socialism the same as communism? Cuz communism, everyone being equal, would be great if you didn`t need people who are more equal than others to enforce it.

    So, counterarguments to my points are that:
    Republicans don`t bitch.
    You know your history (but won`t go into it).
    Only your viewpoint is valid.
    All the governments of the developed world (who already have socialized healthcare) are wrong.
    Every good comes from Bush, every evil from Obama.

    Well if those points are true I guess I must be wrong, yet somehow I don`t think you`re going to demonstrate that to be the case.... can`t think why.

    Florida, if you read my pre-election posts, you`ll find all my complaints about Obama.

    Trying to pigeonhole me, someone who would have voted for McCain if it wasn`t for Palin, as an all out Obama supporter doesn`t hold much ground.

    I`m just pissed off that the Republicans were still blaming CLINTON in the last year of an 8 year Bush reign for the economy, and now instantly have moved on to Obama.

    It`s like the 8 years of Bush have passed by and he has had no negative impact on the economy according to the Republicans.

    8 years of "How can bush be expected to fix the problems of Clinton in a mere X years", and now it`s "Obama has been in for 20 minutes and STILL no change!" along with revisionist history of how we didn`t lose $14 trillion in the Bush years, and that unemployement wasn`t on the rise, and so on.

    From what my parents tell me of Communism, it was the most awesome and stress free life ever. The only reason it failed is not because Communism is flawed, but because all of us are. With that being said, perhaps Socialism would work because we`re imperfect but not hopeless, and Socialism isn`t based in a perfect world, but still becoming idealistic.

    first: this is so funny and the picture is hilarious... bottom line.

    second: i know we need health care reform but here is the thing, the government is full of idiots, both sides. here is the way i see it. you have the left that want to control every aspect of your life (look at their health care and tell me that aint control) and you have the right who want to know every aspect of your life but lets ya go on with it (look at the patriot act)i dont like either solution. 260 million have health insurance and "every1" wants to RADICALLY change that over the next 15 years. y should we screw things up for those who have. (btw i have not had insurance for 2 years now) dont nerf the strong buff the weak! i dont want the government in charge of health care because it does not matter what party has the majority.. they all suck. everything they touch loses money, no matter what obama tells ya, and they say the solution to them... IS THEM??? wtf???

    and for those who are on the left (i cant say on the right because they do not have the super majority) if health care, cap and trade, ect... passes, think about this, in a few years it is most likely the right will be the majority again. they will be in charge of the health care policy... not obama. they will be in charge of who gets care and who does not, do you want that??? the crazy rush limbaugh / glenn beck nuts will be in charge of your health, obama has 4 years or 8 if he is lucky. and yes not even he can change the law that fast to give him more than that and looking at history one party does not stay in the majority forever.

    Additionally:
    Obama has not turned out as bad as I thought he would. You needed an Obama.

    Complaining about taxes at this stage is like complaining about all the water the firemen are "wasting" in putting out the fire.

    Yes it sucks that fixing your hundreds of trillions of dollar economy costs money, but it does.

    Just some examples of how much the skew is in favour of Obama here:

    People made unemployed in the last 8 Months of Bush: 4 Million.
    People made unemployed in the first 8 Months of Obama: 1.3 Million.

    Lets take this even further:

    For "I won`t go into the history" dude. How`s 60 years of Republicans driving up unemployment and Democrats pulling it down?

    Modern Republican policies simply haven`t worked.

    it is not about taxes it is about lying. you have people like you saying that this group of politicians are outstanding, fantastic, truthful, wonderful people because they have a (D) in front of their name but the ones with an (R) are just horrible, racist, sexist, homophobes because of that (R). guess what ITS ALL OF THEM!!! Rs/Ds.. it does not matter. i dont know when we began trusting them before ourselves, our neighbors, or our families. the media makes people out as right wing nuts when the question their representatives, but they are not, they are exercising their constitutional rights in a peaceful manner, they are not extremist just concerned Americans.

    Since it is apparent that the Democrats are not going to reverse any of these Bush-era incursions against liberty, we can see what President Obama really meant by "change." While breaking every promise he made to his supporters regarding war, torture, and domestic spying, he has launched an all-out assault on what is left in America of the individual rights to property and free enterprise. His American Recovery and Reinvestment Act handout to existing welfare programs instead of to the "shovel-ready projects" that he claimed the bill would fund, his health care "reform" initiative that will merely attempt to implement programs that have already failed in Europe and Canada, and his destruction of contract law in stiffing secured creditors in the GM bankruptcy are only the beginning.

    LOL! These posts are FUNNY!

    Baalthazaq...you`re sooo mad...lol

    "The joker wasn`t a socialist! He was an *anarchist* (links provided)."

    Looking back on the previous 8 years of American politics, you could (clearly) argue that Bush wasn`t a member of the Nazi party, but that didn`t stop all of the Bush-Hitler posters from flying around.

    Looking back at many of the "Kill Bush" posters, I would have to say that this poster is pretty benign in comparison.

    I think the idea here is that the protester considers Obama a joker (i.e. a clown) and feels that his policies are socialist. This encourages debate.

    Crying "racist" (noose) is just a desperate and cynical response, and needs no response.

    Banana, reread my post, you`ve inserted every descriptive word you used, and ignored that I wasn`t a Democrat 10 months ago, or that I`m not claiming they`re evil because they`re Republicans.

    I`m simply stating that modern republican policy has demonstratably failed over the last 60 years. I`m merely stating that Republicans have had 8 years of patience for an imbecile, and 8 month of impatience for an adequate (adequate was the adjective I used, not amazing) President.

    But hey, with a bunch of lies, you made you point well. Care to try it again with some truth instead?

    Also Mannord:

    If you put a picture of the Joker on the cover of something, then put "Socialist" underneath, it seems like you`re suggesting one is the other.

    It is also pretty telling of your mindset if your impression of what a Socialist looks like is a Comic book villain.

    Furthermore, I don`t think the Hitler comparisons were because of his political stance. You cause the death of thousands of people and respond with an "oops", you get a Hitler comparison. There is at least a connect with the real world there.

    You... plan economic reforms... and get a Batman villain... with a socialist stamp on the bottom. There is no connection between the 3. There is a complete disconnect from what you think the world is, and how it really is.

    It`s as meaningful as a Limbaugh poster with bunny ears and the word asparagus tagged on the bottom, with a bunch of people who go "Lol, exactly" because it happens to be someone they dislike.

    Baalthazaq, people on my side of the fence who did blame Clinton predicted this economic slump way before Bush took office. Your argument that we `defended` Bush because of Clinton arguments is moot.

    Not to mention that after 911 for nearly a year we had NO economy. The slump was predicted because Clinton was the moron that allowed anyone to get a home loan, and when anyone got a home loan people lost homes. Somehow though, in your mind, Bush was supposed to provide jobs and economic security for people who couldn`t get a home loan, yet did thanks to Clinton.

    Why bring up the past when you know it is idiotic?

    Obama may be centre left, just like Tony (scum-bag) Blair was but he is in no way a socialist.

    Also stop bitching about his healthcare reforms, Britain`s NHS may not be perfect but at lest we don`t need to worry about how much a life saving operation is going to cost.

    Ahh, Baalthazaq. Throwing such a pissy fit that you forgot how to read. :-D

    At least you have enough sense to stay away from the knee-jerk criticism that this poster is somehow racist (which clearly, it is not).

    Your summation of world events to try and make a "Bush=Hitler" comparison even laughably legitimate shows me that you`ve never even read a book on world history.

    Fortunately, most people get the poster (if you don`t), whether they agree with it or not. It has nothing to do with equating a socialist to a comic book character, or a movie character. :-?

    Somewhere in our history our government became less for the people by the people and more for the "big business by the big business". We don`t have a government anylonger, our politicians don`t care any longer, they just want to be the boss, and all are ill equipped to run this country.

    They take a college course, get a degree, play local politican, then run for president.

    When things aren`t running right in society, it`s time to start from scratch. Screw everything and start over. 0 balance 0 everything. Make it once again for the people and by the people, not for the business and by the business.

    And as people said about Former President Bush. I didn`t vote for obama, so don`t blame me.

    I LOVE how I`m an African-American and can`t STAND Obama. Whoa that`s a hell of a curve ball. Can`t handle that, can you?

    "I`m simply stating that modern republican policy has demonstratably failed over the last 60 years."
    Right... simply stating without anything to back up what you are saying.
