Obamamania and the Houston Mayoral Race

Today My Lovely Bride and I were driving around Houston, seeing the sites. We were stopped at a light at the corner of Alabama and Travis and I spied the following painted on the side of a building.


















To the right of the previous sign was this:



















Below shows how the were together on the same external wall of the building.


















We made the block to see what the building was. It turned out to be a campaign headquarters for Gene Locke for Mayor. He is running for mayor of Houston. The thing that caught my eye was the the signs did not have the weather beaten look of signs that had been up since before the election. In fact, they looked almost new.


















I wondered about how Obamamania has overtaken the country and people using him and his image for every imaginable thing. As I have stated numerous times in the past, Barack HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro, Oprah's Love Child, The Boy Wonder, BO, The Big ZERO, P Bo. The Cult Leader) is a rock star, not a POTUS. Could you imagine if a poster of either President Bush or Ronald Reagan was on the side of a building such as the above photos? They would have been defaced within hours.

People have been caught up in Obamamania since way before the election and it is taking this country right down the toilet and I have not even addressed Tony Hawk skateboarding in down a hall of the White House.

"...a person with the indisputable intellect necessary to comprehend the complexities of the international crisis . . . a person with the persuasive prowess to be able to engender the symbiosis between the masses and the classes." - Democrat Congressman Gene Green talking about Gene Locke

I can't believe all the people I see who are still wearing their Obama t-shirts. It's sick.

I'm trying to remember the last time I saw someone wearing a t-shirt with G.W. Bush's mug plastered across the front. Um, that would be... NEVER!

I feel like I'm living in a communist country with images of our Dear Leader plastered everywhere. It seriously gives me the creeps.

Chanman: At some of the high school graduations here in the Houston area, I heard of students wearing Obama medallions on their graduation gowns. The lunacy never dies.
