Obama has been relegated almost to the level of a messiah in the American Political Process, something I, and countless others, will disagree with.

EDIT: OK, due to popular demand (I sold 2 shirts of this over the last two days!), I've uploaded a large version for prints. Enjoy!

Shirts can be purchased here: [link]

2nd Edit: I'm back, and I'm pissed.

Freedom of Speech. The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution is a right I hold close to my heart, and a right that I have never taken for granted. In that vein, I would like to state that someone reported this image to Deviant Art as a "violation". That violation was shot down and the piece, as you can see, still stands.

While I understand this piece isn't something everyone agrees with, let me state this: This piece has achieved 3,674 views and 124 favorites. I'm glad that has become my most popular piece ever. A lot of time, effort, and joy went into this and the reactions have been nothing short but priceless.

To the person who reported this, I would like to state this:

I voted for Obama.

I have insulted the "Final 3" in this election; Hillary, McCain, and Obama. Each of them got a piece. I'm an equal-opportunity offender, folks! Now, if you don't agree with the message here, that's fine. But please, remember the rights of artists to express themselves. I'm sure Obama would agree with that. :)

Obama is a horrible person and a terrible president. We need to punish him for what he's done. Sign this petition on whitehouse.gov to raise awareness for his impeachment. It make not work, but if it gets over 100K signatures, THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION HAS TO MAKE A STATEMENT ABOUT IT, PUBLICLY!!!!!!petitions.whitehouse.gov/.../i…

Probably true, but Obama never claimed himself a messiah. (You had one president God personally was speaking to, especially the day before he had a tough time explaining something). So Obama isn't a messiah, it's just you who tries to look for one. I thought you religious people already have at least one messiah.

This is offensive and totally out of place. False messiah? Who even said he was the messiah?? Pres. Obama is an intelligent man - much more so that George W. Bush and John McCain, and without question Sarah Palin. You want to talk reckless violence (as the missiles in the background clearly indicate)? How about we start with W.'s decision to invade Iraq in a search of "WMDs," which under the guise of instilling democracy, quickly dissolved into an /increase/ of violence and death tolls and alienation of an entire country.

I'm not saying Obama has lived up to (even my) expectations. He hasn't. But given the shitty state of the country he inherited from W., he's doing his damnedest to tackle a seemingly impossible task.

You know what else is offensive and out of place? YOUR FACE!

BURN!

No, seriously, though, your comments actually are offensive since they seem to dismiss any opposing viewpoint.

For starters, you didn't even read the description, otherwise you would understand that I even said no one is calling him a messiah, but during the 2008 election he was elevated to that level. "Obama has been relegated almost to the level of a messiah in the American Political Process, something I, and countless others, will disagree with."

Is he intelligent? Yes, and he's smarter than Bush, John McCain, and Sarah Palin. If you want to talk about violence, we've got the fact he has ordered the murder of American Citizens without trials, the fact he declared war on Libya without getting Congressional approval (just like Bush and almost ever president since WWII), or the fact that he sent more troops to Afghanistan the same week he got a friggin' Nobel PEACE Prize! In terms of violence, the guy isn't exactly a saint, is he? Bush was an idiot for going into two wars; lets hope Obama's Libya doesn't turn into another Iraq, shall we?

Finally, you said it yourself, Obama hasn't lived up to the expectations (and in my opinion, the promises and hopes and change he said he would bring), and that's a fair thing to say. At the same time, you can't just blame everything on Bush Jr; that's kinda what his supporters said. "Don't blame Bush, it's all Clinton's fault! Hell, he was bombing Iraq for years!" The guy had Democratic control in the House AND the Senate, and instead of getting Medicare for all, he STARTED with a compromise and we got a really crappy deal.

The fact that his presidency has been such a failure is as much a failure of his leadership as it is the fact that the Republican party has had a united front of trying to stop him. Great presidents understand the issues they face and the fight as hard as possible against them, not just sit back and try to be friends with someone who wants to destroy them.

So, once again, what I find offensive is your reply that doesn't seem to understand the piece itself and what it questions. It wasn't about if he was better or worse than Bush. It was entirely about the fact that everyone seemed he was going to fix everything overnight and my fear that no one during the 2008 election seemed to be paying attention to just what it was, exactly, that he was actually saying and capable of.

And THAT is why he's a "False Messiah".

hello, i am from obamastan. here we live in a utopian society where everything is so perfect, life is pointless! we have a population of about 100,000 people, since we had to get rid of all those cruel heartless christian liberatarians who hated everything that was good and right. of course our population is decreasing due to the gay and lesbian population of our country. but thats ok, they were born that way and they cant help it.plus, we can just biologically engineer more zombi-i mean people from fetuses that we throw from how many women forget that they can get pregnant. but thats ok. we dont need them anyway. goodbye for now, comrads, because i have to be put back inside my house for the next three days due to military police enfced curfew. remember, a dead baby a day keeps the doctor away! and hail obama your lord and savior every day!

What many " Obama Hater" Fail to realize is that he is the president because many people voted for him... Not just blacks... If you all knew anything about the U.S. you would know that many minorities are locked up or cant vote. Therefore, He is our president because.. yep you guessed it "White Americans" Helped put him there.. So stop your whining and complaining.. Republicans had there chance and they screwed it up.. There the reason for the failing economy.. Look at Enron..Hmm that happen when Bush was in Office... Housing market plummited..hmmm.. When Bush was in Office.. War on oil..Oops my bad..Let Bush tell it War on terroism..Happen while he was in Office.. The media tells you half truths...We could never know who were on those planes that took down the World Trade... Its all speculations and lies... How does the media know who were on the planes and who hijacked them.. There is no video on the plane nor any survivors... There is A black box.. But none of us have heard what actually took place... We just know what the media wants us to know and whats us to think..The news is nothing but a form of Brainwashing... America was founded on Lying and deceit what makes you think it has changed.. Learn your history and wake up. And if you all Hate President Obama so much.. Its not that hard to pack your @#$% get a passport and take your @#$% to another country..But no one is going to do that. You all rather sit on your @#$% and complain..Complaining doesn't change anything.. If it did we wouldn't have had Bush Lazy @#$% for 8 years..

Um, excuse me, but founded on lying? You mean like we fought so hard for our freedom, only to have it ultimately taken away again? Sorry, but no. I'll admit they've been screwing around with some of our freedoms, but if you're talking in terms of like, they're trying for ultimate enslavement, then that's just insane.

As for the media telling us only half truths...yes, that's true quite often. Because they mainly believe what they're told by the politicians and whatnot, and they usually don't get the full story, because they're not told the full story, because the people in power want to do the best they can to hide their incompetence. But it's a known fact that even things they try to keep secret, EVENTUALLY get written about in the media. Even wikileaks is starting to be written about in the media, and that exposes lots of war crimes that they wanted to keep secret.

As or what REALLY happened on 9/11...there's really no way to be sure. I've heard numerous different theories as to what really happened. But the terrorists have proudly taken credit for it, so it was likely terrorists, inside job or not.


Bottom line is, I know our country lies to us a lot, but meh. They're mainly just doing that to hide their own incompetence and whatnot, as I said before. Not really a big deal.

Also, I know they often do a lot of highly disagreeable stuff, and then lie about it, but that's mainly out of greed, and to try to make some big-ass profit, and want to keep the people from knowing about their greed. But even then, it isn't part of some big-ass conspiracy for global enslavement, like so many people think. I'm not saying you believe that, just making a point here.
