‘HOPE’ Poster Artist Doesn’t Think Obama Lived Up to the Hype or ‘Hope’

Many of us in 2008 watched the election in disbelief. Some people really were buying what Obama was selling. A lot of people were buying it. And given that the main alternative was John McCain it almost made sense.

The happy death of “political correctness” for those who think.

This has nothing to do with “crony capitalism.” Just the thoughts of your humble editor.

While others say don’t hate nothing at all, Except hatred.” – Bob Dylan

“He not busy being born is busy dying,” – Bob Dylan

I have no tolerance for hatred. People who are consumed by disgust and ill will for their fellow man, whether black, white, Asian, Indian, Berber, Basque or gay,
