(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 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.

-Blackout-, Your billboard has shown up again, this time in the Ozarks, Branson,
MO.

Here is a Link to the Article:
www.ky3.com...

And from the: Greene County Democratic Central Committee.

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.

Maybe they should ask their local Democrats How they feel about Obama, instead of Spouting the Party Line.

From the People who bought the sign and had it brought to Branson, MO.

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.


'Voted Obama? Embarrassed Yet?'
I really like this Quote from the people who brought in the sign.

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?


I want to ask, How is this sign Racist? Here is a quote from the article:
Critchfield says he's received death threats due to the sign; people accuse him of hate speech and racism. He insists the billboard was for something more American in the name of discourse, conversation, and old-fashioned debate.

That's Right, This Billboard should make you Think and Debate.

Edited for Spelling Corrections, I might of spelled " in " instead of " is " or
" abd " instead of " and " That might make Misoir nauseated because one word was not spelled correctly.
ljtg123, don't worry about it, most normal people automatically knew what you meant to spell here " This quote is interesting. Perhaps someone should clue Annie in on the fact that respect in earned not learned. "
And you're correct, Respect is Earned and Not Learned.

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.

If you are asking that if McCain had won, would we still see these signs.... Being from Texas, I doubt it... A good deal of Texas tends to be Republican/Conservative.

So, you would be less likely for sure around here to see a sign like that if our president were a republican.

All in all, I tend to be more left leaning ( Liberal is a dirty word where I am from) but I have to say, really so far, there has not been much of a chance... no real significant difference between the last presidency and the current. Then again, it is still early...

Maybe someone could teach you about proper spelling. Just saying...

Did I vote for Obama? No way. Would I have voted for him? No. Will I vote for him? No.

Obama has proven not to be FDR or even LBJ, he is a combination of JC and BC. Not worth a damn.

I wouldn't mind Pat Buchanan or Ron Paul, they earn honor and damn sure deserve it.

This is hilarious. I didn't vote Obama, heck I didn't vote at all - what's the point if all you ever get is more of the same? - but I don't see a reason why someone should be embarrassed for voting for who they thought was the best candidate.

I don't mind it when Obama gets bashed in this way because Bush got some of the same treatment, I mean comedians and ordinary Americans everywhere tore Bush to shreds (and rightfully so).

So a
for free speech not that I necessarily agree with what the billboard says.

And a star and a flag for the OP.

I didn't vote for him and I'm embarassed that he is the POTUS.
Doesn't seem logical though...

He really isn't making any decisions.
The people around him are.

I wish people would wake up and realize that he's not our problem.
If we could rid ourselves of all the garbage in DC, we would have a start.
Seems all Americans are worried about is what this guy does.
The people that surround him are who worries me.
(although he's not helping)

Why do liberals hate free speech when it is directed against them?
