Mogulman-"but it really seemed like an overly dramatic way of saying, "LOOK AT ME! LOOK WHAT IM DOING! I AM AN ARTIST!""

There`s not question that this man is an artist. (Especially at a time where a urine soaked object is considered `art`.)

He`s a good artist. And artist have created political based are since the beginning of time. But the only reason he`s getting ANY press is he has the audacity to paint *gasp* negative things about Obama. (how DARE he.)

DOR-"would be so ignorant as to assume that the current US fiscal situation is the result of barely three years of one man`s effots."

Actually, his painting does not represent that. (in fact, his presentation specifically states `The actions of Barack Obama, AS WELL AS other Presidents`) It merely represents that Obama is stepping on the Consitution (which he pretty much has been doing since he got into office.)

PhotoKing: What picture are you looking at ? GW Bush is pictured right behind Obama.

[quote]...there is nothing he could do to really fix anything.[/quote]

Obama had 2 years of democrat majorities in both the house and senate, he could`ve done whatever he pleased to fix things, instead he focused on Obamacare, bank bailouts, and a worthless `stimulus package`.

he`s a good artist, but not accurate. it would be nice if the guy referenced what obama has done to be jousted out like that. like shouldn`t bush be right next to him? after what bush did there is nothing he could do to really fix anything. so it`s not really fair.

sssfdg-"WOW... total propoganda....biased..."

Can you name one bit of art that does not reflect the beliefs and/or bias of either the artist or those who commission the artwork?

That`s what art IS: The expression of the artist.

This artist is not presenting this as anything other than his own opinion.

NDDA
ACTA

most of you do not know what either of those are, or that Obama signed them and because you do not know what they are you do not realize they took away your freedom.

ok go back to your porn and lolcats since that is the only thing most of you give a ratsass about anyway.

WOW... total propoganda. Anyone notice that all the republican presidents, especially from recent past, had a look of sorrow and the democrates have this look of pride.

this painting is a biased as fox news.

3 years? No. But he IS putting the `finishing touches` to the end of America. And by God, doing an incredible job of it. His handlers must be proud.

"It is astonishing to think that someone with so much talent, and a passing understanding of history would be so ignorant as to assume that the current US fiscal situation is the result of barely three years of one man`s efforts."

This.

By the way, whatever happened to that Archer guy? You know, the Ayn Rand guy? He would have LOVED this painting, I suspect, but I haven`t seen him on here in ages.

DOR: Not just one man`s efforts, but the cumulative efforts of those pictured applauding in the picture. I believe you are the one who assumed to quickly here.

What Scuzoid said, Although instead of two parties all the parties, as we have had presidents from the Whig, Democratic-Republican, War Union(Andrew Johnson), and Federalist (John Adams) political parties. In addition George Washington was against political parties.

Yes. Because Reagan, Bush, and Bush wanted smaller government with less executive power? Seriously? How on earth do people get so biased? Do facts just not matter at all?

And Lincoln suspended congress so he could run the war, so he`s on the wrong side...

Good concept, dude`s just way too easily twisted to party lines. There should be a considerably larger number of presidents from both parties applauding Obama. If he (the artist) wasn`t such a partisan tool, this would be a GREAT painting.

Beautiful painting, moronic message. As if it`s only the Presidents that can do anything about the Constitutional issues. Right.

Get a job, idiot.

For a minute there I was thinking, "Wow! 5Cats submitted something about painting--something about art instead of politics for once!"

But no. ~facepaw~

He makes fine points, but it really seemed like an overly dramatic way of saying, "LOOK AT ME! LOOK WHAT IM DOING! I AM AN ARTIST!"
