Yeah, one of them's a brown skinned guy promising help and health for the poor, proper taxation for the rich, and tolerance for all members of society.

The other was Jesus.

See how the old guy is trying to catch one of Fartbama's farts? It's like he's wafting it into his nostrils, like a fine wine. And all the other old guys are pointing to the homeless person saying, "What about this guy? He needs farts, too!"

I'm glad I wasn't the only one who immediately thought that. Its like the artist has realized half the truth. If he could only have visualized putting the bongos in the painting, he would have captured the very essence of the Fartbongo.

On a positive note, it does mean she's posting much less about Benghazi.

My thoughts exactly. In comparing Obama to Brian, it made it a painting of hope.

*shakes head* This does not surprise me. Only the Right can compare their candidates and elected representatives as Jesus and/or Saints. Anyone else doing that is just blasphemy!

So that explains Dubya! He was haunted by two former Presidents with grossly different views on the Constitution and the purpose of government, thereby confusing him and causing him to make such poor decisions as cutting taxes and taking us to war for no apparent reason!

Damn, I almost feel sorry for the guy.

I think the real tragedy is the number of people who've grown up believing that the Romans only ever crucified one guy. What about the rest of them? Didn't anyone stop to think that maybe the artist was comparing Obama to one of the other people the Romans crucified?

Jesus was crucified by his own party.

No one out there on the Left has the balls to crucify Obama for his energetic support of right wing policies.

The painting doesn't even make any sense.

After John Wilkes Booth snuck into Ford's Theater, pulled a loaded gun out, and mortally wounded Mr. Lincoln, he quipped to the press "It wasn't my intent to murder him."

"My intent was not to compare him to Jesus"

Unlike Jamie Foxx the blasphemer, who DID compare him to God. Apparently Jamie never read this:

"On an appointed day Herod, having put on his royal apparel, took his seat on the rostrum and began delivering an address to them. The people kept crying out, 'The voice of a god and not of a man!'
And immediately an angel of the Lord struck him because he did not give God the glory, and he was eaten by worms and died." (Acts 12:21-23)

Let hope those worms chew fast.

What's going to happen to all these lunatics and their Obama-obsession when Obama is done with his second term? If the next President is a Democrat, it seems like the nutjobs are going to be too burned out to start over with someone new.

They'll give it a few years, then claim he was really one of them and take credit for Obamacare and economic recovery.

I don't see how anyone could think he meant to compare Obama with Jesus. After all, Jesus was Ronald Reagan, and the conservatives would NEVER compare Obama to Jesus in that fashion.

You mean Limbaugh, Beck, Savage, O'Reilly, Malkin, etc? I'm sure they'll soldier through somehow.

Sarcasm from a comedian is often lost on those who cannot grasp subtlety

Seriously, the only references to Obama the Messiah in the past few years have been coming from the
radical, activist, resentful base of the republican party.

The radical, activist, resentful base of the republican party is so damn stupid and so damn caught up in delegitimizing the
President, they can't grasp the concept that it is "they" who were the target of mockery by Jamie Foxx
