With Election Day looming ever nearer, my mailbox has become flooded with anti-Obama leaflets. Ignoring my initial reaction to quickly throw them away, I soon became fascinated with the misleading information, demonization of the President and overt fear mongering these ads employ. Below are two mailers from Americans for Tax Reform.
The Train of Debt will Smush your Children
Ah, yes. Obama the Commie Train Conductor. Note The Washington Post quote below… an op-ed, not a news article. Also worth considering: The United States Public Debt doubled under President George W.

Obama Burns $100 Bills for Fun!
And here we see how the President cares more about studying ants and giving cocaine to monkeys than helping Coloradans find jobs. Although, one must consider that the study “Effects of Cocaine Self-Administration on Metabotropic Glutamate Systems” at the Wake Forest University Medical School is designed to help find treatment for cocaine abuse. Its funding also makes up than .0001% of the stimulus package. The study on exotic ants at the California Academy of Sciences is less than .00002% of the stimulus package. It created 22 jobs.
Have you received anti-Obama propaganda? If so, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to see it, analyze it, and then mock it!
