Fine.

Some one put up this George Bush Caricature To make things even.





If you go into politics you had better have a real thick skin or get the heck out of the ARENA.

I am really getting sick of the Bush bashing is O.K. but do not touch a hair on Obama's head or we will tattle to Mommy that you are a racist.

Bush is gone and good riddance now it is Obama in the Hot seat so get over it!

The signs are ridiculous! President Obama is tough....he can handle it. I am very sure in the scheme of things...these silly signs matter not to him at all. He has more important things on his mind.

You forgot lady bird Johnson and her campaign against interstate bill boards.

For the most part, outdoor ads must be placed 660 feet of the nearest edge of the right-of-way, which is why some of us need binoculars to read them....

...however, if the signs are posted on the easement of an interstate - thats federal property and washington state has no say-so over whats allowed on federal property... right?... wrong?... not sure?... i'm not sure either, just guessing, lol...


As I said, signs like this have been on that particular piece of property since there has been an I-5. If they were illegal they would have been taken down long, long ago. They are a fixture on this piece of property. As I understand it, the old guy passed away and now his son is carrying on the tradition.

OK, I gotta agree with you there. Those signs were not in the least racist and were very directed at the Obama Administration's specific policies - not that I agree with all of the conclusions this individual came to in regards to those policies.

And yes, there were some real whoppers that came out when Bush Jr. was president, my favorite and most unforgettable below. There would be a total freak out if this were done to Obama in an international newspaper today. I am not white, and racists abound, but folks need to differentiate between the racist and the political.

There are laws/regulations defining the use of billboards along the highways in Oregon and Washington (not sure of the exact requirements, they differ) and these may fall within or under the guidelines, as well as being placed on private property and not for use for profit... There is another stretch of I-5 much further south that also has something similar placed on private farmland, but the signs are ground level and definitely not billboard size. Here is the WSDOT info. regarding this.

ETA: I have not found a "news source" indicating anything with regards to WA state (or the property owner) having a spat with DC. All the searches have led to blogs... Perhaps someone else has (or will) find a more substantive source...

It does not matter it is not pornography and therefore even if it is in poor taste we can either laugh with the cartoonist or ignore it.

This is the other option


On a spring day in 1918 several government agents entered a print shop at Washington, D. C., where the original edition of this book was being printed. "Destroy all the Lindbergh plates in your plant," they told the head of the institution. He was forced to comply..... Not only were the plates of this book "Why Is Your Country at War?" destroyed, but also the plates of Congressman Lindbergh's book "Banking and Currency," written in 1913 and attacking the big bankers and Federal Reserve Law. So was the painstaking effort of months wiped out. Only a few hundred copies of this book had been printed, and they were sent to Minnesota for use in Congressman Lindbergh's campaign for the governorship of that state....

well, what do people expect out of the right-wingers? fairness and shared responsibility? c'mon, that train has long ago left the station.
hey, when are we going to see step and fetch-it? or monkey bodies, or cotton-pickin, or watermelon-eating....
the only thing republicans want is no taxes for the top 5%, and no social benefits for the bottom 95%.
maybe progressives and liberals should wear yellow stars on their clothing, or just change the words a bit on this poster and put it up as billboards.

This is HILARIOUS!!!!

Just look at the spelling of the right wingnut/tea bagger that wrote those signs. Shows what were dealing with here. Their platform should read 'Not smarter than a fifth grader, but we know whats best for our country'.

HILARIOUS!!!!!

Taxe - HAHAHA, should of checked the internets for pointers on how to spell better than a fifth grader before putting paint on those signs.

Thanks for giving me a good belly laugh, and confirming the education level some of these COMERADES!

LOL! Star and flag!

[sigh]. Is this how you see all black people? I don't instantly think black person when I see a caricature like this. I think caricature. I have one very similar of myself I got at a fair. Here, do this to absolve yourself of this notion. Go to images.google.com and search for 'Jimmy Carter caricature' and then 'George Bush caricature' and 'Bill Clinton caricature'. Then stop throwing around the racist crap so willy nilly as it demeans what real racism is.

Is it racist? Isn't it equating ALL WHITE people to chimps? Why when its Obama does it somehow equate ALL BLACK people? That is a hypocritical view. I guess if you haven't paid attention to politics until Obama you can be forgiven for not being aware. This goes back a good 300 years to England - probably all the way to the printing press.

ROTFLMAO

That really is a good one.


Given the political situation in this country we need the humor to vent the frustration. Better laughter than what happen in the UK

Honestly those are disgusting. The caricature is racist itself and most of what is written (and misspelled) is untrue. This is not free speech as much as it is libel and defamation.


Please, how is it racist in any way? You obviously don't read many financial or wall street news papers, because they have cartoons in them like this all the time. Get real, your only mad because it's true.
Umm... no. The accentuated ears, lips, teeth and noise coupled with the reduced cranial dome is classic racism.

It is called a caricature. Get with the times and get over yourself man! Every single political person on the face of the planet at one time or another has probably had a caricature cartoon of them in one way or another. Hell I got a caricature for fun at a fair once, should I have punched the caricature artist for doing their job and portraying me in a cartoonist fashion with over proportioned features? No, because that is what they do. Bottom line is this is not racist in any way shape or form. Take a look at Obama and tell me those features on him aren't already big before being caricatured.

Who is a communist? Because if you are calling me one...you are mistaken....I am not nor have I ever been a communist.

All I did was state that the President has better things to do than worry about some signs.....

Amazing how the Racism Card took over the thread and ran away with it when the real news/question is Did the US Government and Washington State get into a tussle over the signs.


The signs are not the real issue, the right to free speech is and whether there was a tussle in the first place or is it Dis-Info.

Agree with you and it's difficult to track down. Searches link to a lot of blog sites, but nothing resembling "news source"

SG-17, When I think of Free Speech and a picture of the obama's I think of this one, Only because I think it best fits his and hers agenda when it comes to America and It's People.
