Poster image design by Shepard Fairey
I wasn’t particularly fond of Obama when he came on the scene. I got really bad vibes, listening to him speak, watching the body language filled with arrogance as he approached a podium. I couldn’t come to trust him…..he was/is a phony.
Those Obama poster images hanging in campaign halls and who knows where throughout the nation, that’s what really did it for me. Who does that? May be I’m wrong, but I just don’t recall images of a candidate and President up for re-election with his image hanging from the walls and rafters like he is to be worshiped. Not like that anyway. I don’t believe you saw that from McCain or Romney.
I just could not keep from thinking we were just like the old Soviet Union, with images of Stalin and Lenin their citizens got to enjoy everyday, everywhere. That is what I took from the public poster images of Obama, that he wanted to be just like Joseph.
If he thought he could get away with it, his image would be everywhere, just like Caesar.
Just how hopeful are you feeling these days?
