The President is on (bill)board

Maintenance man David Lee, of Arvada, puts the finishing touches on a sign featuring drawings of President Barack Obama for a sales lot for pre-owned vehicles along Interstate 70 in Wheat Ridge (Colorado) on Friday. The billboard, completed by an artist Thursday, shows a grinning cartoonish Obama wearing a turban. ( David Zalubowski )

A billboard at a Wheat Ridge car dealership -- with a caricature of President Barack Obama as a turban-wearing jihadist -- has sparked a boycott and death threats, but even more support, its sponsor said.

Phil Wolf, owner of Wolf Automotive, said the billboard asks a legitimate question about Obama's alleged lack of documentation of his Americanbirth.

"President or Jihad?" the billboard reads. "Wake up, America! Remember Fort Hood!"

Wolf said politicians have not been held accountable.

"This man is not telling the truth," Wolf said. "He should prove he's an American."

Bobby Clark of the liberal online network Progress Now Colorado is organizing a boycott of Wolf Automotive. Clark said "birthers" and "teabaggers" like Wolf have been emboldened by mainstream Republican politicians and pundits.

The man behind the sign is either an idiot, crazy or a racist (maybe all three). We won the election and now these sore losers will continue to spew their hate with lies. They remind me of the Birthers losers, who even “Fake News” Bill O’Reilly has smacked down like the true flies they are.
