(May 7) -- A provocative billboard in a small Texas town is causing more than a few drivers to do a double take.
Located on Highway 59 in Marshall, the sign features a head shot of President Barack Obama along with the words, "Voted Obama? Embarrassed yet?"
As ABC affiliate KLTV reports, the only indication of who is responsible for the billboard can be found in its lower right-hand corner, where the words "Paid for by EM Citizen" appear.
I know the president didn't win down here, but there were a lot of people down here that voted for him, and I think I can speak for them and say we are not embarrassed yet," Matthew Patterson, executive director of the Greene County Democratic Central Committee.
I've certainly voted for people I'm embarrassed to say I've voted for," he said. "We're not naïve enough to think that we wouldn't get someone to be upset. I'm just surprised how upset people are.
If everybody thinks [President Obama's] done a great job and they're very happy," he said, "then I guess they'd be buying billboards saying 'I'm proud to have voted for him.' That's what makes America great, isn't it?

Annie King, another Marshall resident, told KLTV, "It really shouldn't matter and he will be in office for a while and people need to learn to respect him."
This quote is interesting. Perhaps someone should clue Annie in on the fact that respect in earned not learned.

I don't mean to be flip but if McCain was in there would still be these billboards. The ONE party system in the States makes it so.
