Is President Obama Comparable to Colorado, Shooter, James Holmes?

Updated on December 12, 2013

Comparing President Obama to, James Holmes? Really, Really?

It wasn't enough for the Obama haters to compare candidate and now President Obama, to Hitler, a Nazi, a Muslim, the Gestapo, a Socialist, even a racist...now he's being compared to Aurora, Colorado shooter James Holmes! He's even shown as being worst than Holmes. (Will these people ever stop!)


The Billboard

There's a billboard in Idaho, that has a picture of Aurora, Colorado shooter, James Holmes next to a picture of, President Obama. The caption above the picture of Holmes say, "Kills 12 in a movie theater with assault rifle, everyone freaks out," contrasted with the caption above President Obama's picture which says "Kills thousands with foreign policy, wins Nobel Peace Prize,"

The billboard is said to often contain anti Obama messages. (No surprise there!)


Maurice Clements

The leader of the group who put the billboard up, is a former Idaho state lawmaker named, Maurice Clements. Clements said in a report by, the Idaho Statesman, "We’re all outraged over that killing in Aurora, Colo., but we’re not outraged over the boys killed in Afghanistan,” Clements says he's not trying to connect the President to Holmes. (Really?)

He's just comparing the way society reacts differently to both situations. He says, "We’re not saying that Obama is a lunatic,”. (Really? Then why make the comparison with a "lunatic"?)


Many Local People Aren't Buying It

But many of the locals aren't buying what Clements and his group are selling! Calling the billboard "pathetic" "offensive" and "abhorrent.

I wholeheartedly agree with that! I was very pleased and surprised to hear that!

That restored some of my faith in humankind!

I'm sure many people in Idaho may not agree with President Obama's policies or may not like him cause he's black and the president. But they still have the decency to speak-out, against something this crass and insensitive, to the shooting victims' families, and insulting to the President and his family


What's Wrong With Clements?

What's wrong with people, like Clements and his group, and others, who make these outrageous, offensive, and wacky comparisons, about President Obama?

Do they even think about, what they we're doing or the implications of what they we're doing, before they did this? Apparently not! hmmm....on second thought...maybe they did!

Love to hear your view on the subject!

      I think that billboard is just about the stupidest thing I've ever heard of if you don't count Mitt Romney wondering why you can't open the window on an airplane! ;D

      Sad, but hardly surprising. I will just be glad, whatever the outcome, when the election is over.
