Haha, that's hilarious! Not far at all. Great timing too. Even the mainstream television watchers can understand this.

Yes. I think it is too much.

Attack Obama on countless items, attack his decisions, attack his policies, attack his character.

But this?

Poor taste and badly directed.

I know it won't stand me in good stead with my fellow conservtives, but I think it was poorly done.

Totally tactless imo.
While it's true Obama's foreign policy, just like every other recent President's foreign policy, have resulted in the deaths of people overseas, to use this recent shooting as a political tool is pretty disgusting.

The wrongdoings of Obama can stand on their own merit.
Go find some other tragedy to push your political agenda.
If I was a family member of one of the deceased I would want to slap the makers of this billboard.

No Kidding.
I have a question to all.
Was he born in kenya?
In hawaii?
In a manger?
or somewhere on the other side of the gates of HELL.
Just a thought.

LOL....too far.

The political debate is a farce to begin with. How far is too far in a farce?

A sign like that would not change anyones vote. Those who agree with it will like it, those who don't won't, and those who don't care one way or the other (like myself) will think its stupid (like i do).

Overall shock value on a scale of 1-10: meh.

Talk about getting it wrong.

The Colorado shooter did it because he's crazy = no profit

Obama does it for money and oil = profit.

Obama is arguably the most prolific killer this Nation has ever known. He is running around the Country bragging about killing Osama Bin Laden when he had ample opportunity to bring him in alive.

I am starting to think he is a Natural Born Killer. Perhaps a Serial Killer. Here is my list of deaths I feel Obama (Barry) is responsible for:

Osama Bin Laden
Our credit rating
The American dream
The coal industry
The oil and natural gas industry
The healthcare sector
Job creation
Economic growth
Small businesses
Andrew Breitbart and his coroner

All those who, in their desperation over lost jobs, lost dreams and foreclosed homes, committed suicide.

There is a long list of unexplained deaths which the last person to see the victim alive was him. But curiously he was never asked one question.

Is Obama (Barry Soetoro) a Serial Killer?

All the Hammer Heads bravely saying that it's correct, and not to far.

What changes in Foreign Policy are you looking for?

To go to War with Iran?

Ya, that will save lives because no one gets hurt in Wars.

You people really define Ignorance.

Like other posters have said, the billboard doesn't really make sense. Seems more for the gasp factor than actually trying to relay a message. Walking away, I don't know what to think? More shooters? Less prizes?
But I'm not American so I'm not as clued up on the whole business

It's just neither of those men have been convicted of killing anyone (One is on trial, and the other sits behind a desk)

Would people boycott Volkswagen, if they found out that JH drove to the cinema in one?
Yet people use the same logic with the Pres and wars? People and soldiers make their own choices in life

Comparing Obama to a mass murderer is showing deep hate for the president that goes well beyond disagreeing with his policies. Whether you're a republican, democrat, libertarian or independent, making a comparison like this simply shows your ignorance.

Using this tragedy in order to try and win over votes is truly disturbing.

Also, to blame one man for the atrocities of war? What about everyone who are following orders, what about all the "patriots"? What about everyone that doesn't do anything more than whine about what their country is doing on the internet?

I am thoroughly against war, but I know that this is not only disingenuous, it's insulting to the victims and their families.

People died in a horrific way, using it as a political tool is just sick.

The people who put that up might have a right to do it, but they would lose any support I had for them based on this stupid display of complete insensitive idiocy immediately.

Billboard go too far! They are a blight upon the landscape and should be outlawed as they are in Vermont. Capitalist pig bastards have to rape and wreck everything!

This particular time, yes especially considering it's only been a week. Obama is a goof but so is the moran who did this.

I disagree, this man should be held accountable for his choices, and ridiculed in public. I mean, he won the Nobel Peace prize for crying out loud, yet we still have American troops occupying foreign countries and we are at "war" against terror. So, I say, put up more of these billboards everywhere...if you support war and killing people then yes you should be held accountable, and comparing him to a killer is the right thing to do. Why? Because even if Obama is not actually physically pulling the trigger, he is still the Commander in Chief and has the power to stop the killing and actually bring peace to the world...but will not do it. So yes, he is no better than the Colorado murderer.

James Holmes is a suspect - not a convicted killer of 12. He's innocent until proven guilty, and as such the sign is actually slanderous and potentially prejudicial to his case. The comment about Obama "kills thousands with his foreign policy" is also slander. Just because an opinion is widely held, doesn't mean it's a fact. I doubt anybody can prove Obama has killed a single person with "his foreign policy".

Anyway, if Obama doesn't get a second term, who are you going to get? Some soulless vampire that's so evil it's wonder he doesn't start smoking when exposed to daylight.

Ok man! I feel better now! To answer your question this disgusting billboard does make a valid point. Obama sit's in the situation room with the rest of the gaggle of stooges and plays judge, jury and executioner and kills people all around the world by drone. Now he's killed U.S. citizens (in a foreign country) without due process of law and quite possible without even probable cause. Why do you think that they took GPS coordinates during the last census? Could a hellfire missle be coming to a home near you? I mean, piss off the government enough and boom your house explodes, the ATF and FBI investigate (destroy incriminating evidence of government involvement) and suddenly you where a nut job making god knows what in your basement or..gas main explosion. Think about it, all from two miles up, you'll never hear it coming. AND YOUR PAYING FOR IT!!!

I don't know, are we talking about hurt feelings here or truth? Is there any truth to it? Has his actions (foreign policies) resulted in the death of others? If so then no I don't think it has gone too far. I vaguely remember Bush being compared to Hitler years ago, the picture reminded me of something I saw somewhere. Just because something is mean, rude, ect.. doesn't necessarily mean it doesn't have some truth behind it.

Good point!

There were Bush/Hitler posters all over the place!

I'd like it if conservatives restrained themselves in that manner.

I appreciate all those who have commented. I don't think there has ever been a time where so many on the left and I have been on the same page!

Nope.. this is not going far enough. This guy is responsible for mass death all around the world, so that means he is much worse than the batman shooter.
