Obama Joker Poster "politically mean spirited and dangerous"?

Via ktla.com

Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson is calling the depiction, politically mean spirited and dangerous.

Hutchinson is challenging the group or individual that put up the poster to have the courage and decency to publicly identify themselves.

"Depicting the president as demonic and a socialist goes beyond political spoofery," says Hutchinson, "it is mean-spirited and dangerous."

Really? You don't say? I would suggest Mr. Hutchinson Google Bush images using the words Joker, Hitler or Devil and then get back to us on his faux outrage.

They teach us all this stuff and then get mad when we learn?

I know, don't you just love the selective outrage?

Excellent summary of the events leading to the outing of Jesse Griffin. Well done.

Thanks, but have you been to RSMcCain or Riehl World, clearly something else is afoot!

I actually thought the poster was pretty fitting (not to mention funny).

It's like gravy, ya know? You know you can eat those taters without it, but they taste so much better when smothered in creamy, rich, delicious gravy. We need a little humor (or blatant honesty) to help the crap sandwiches go down.

And HOW MANY nasty photo shops have I seen depicting EVILBOOOOSH, McCain, Palin, Rush Limbaugh, etc. etc. ad nauseum, ad infinitum...

ROTFLMAO! Gravy, I have to remember that one!

Actually I find the whole Joker concept so fitting for Obama. The only thing better might be making an Obama Decepticon Transformer!

He could start out as Obama and then transform into a mechanical Karl Marx!

No more, or less than some of the posters the liberals came up with for Bush or Reagan.

In short they need to shut up sit down, and have another Starbucks coffee.

Sometime I think liberals are so use to using projection, that they completely forget people have memories.

I think their real outrage is because Obama is turning out to be the joke, conservatives said he was and that is hitting too close to home.

The Obama administration is practicing its own caricature of the people protesting at town hall meetings around the country, even referring to them as "rabid".

When's the last time ANY White House released a statement calling a group of Americans "rabid"??

I would never personally make a poster like that about Obama or any other person......but my goodness, if he can dish it out, he needs to be able to take it.
