  • Worried Barack Obama

    Worried Barack Obama
        • Pretty sure W. could have done a better job protecting us from attack if he had actually paid attention to his intelligence briefings. But who knows? If invading countries with no affiliation to 9/11 is keeping us safe, let's hope Obama invades Iran immediately.

          Oh, and a critique, since that's what I should be doing: don't use comic sans... ever, under any circumstances, also, it would be nice to see this in a bigger size.

          [Edited by User on 11/8/2008 5:54:14 AM]
        • With the mess Bush and his policies have made of things I am surprised that Obama didn't have a stroke after his first CIA briefing.

          I just hope he will not want to fill those shoes and just throw them out with the rest of the garbage!!!

  • Barack Obama Can Get Bin Laden

    Barack Obama Can Get Bin Laden
        • If your going to attempt good propaganda satire?

          First, You must have an element of Truth.

          The Truth you are trying to sell here is the same kind of Truth that tied 9-11 to Iraq, nad 8 years of BullSh!t.

          The Things We know about George Bush and Osama Bin Laden are, We All Know what they did, And Only One of them Has Been Caught.

          Nothing against Obama whatsoever. Don't get upset mate.

          Quit Your Whining about how horrible it will all be, and ask yourself how the New Jersey you can make it better.

          Take Care.

          Oh? ...I did a Osama Picture years ago ...except he had an American Flag wrapped around his head.

        • You couldn't find a better Obama source? I'm sure there's plenty to be had out there which would increase your score a lot, also maybe try matching source skin tones if possible.

          Good luck
