I Wonder What It's Like to Be an Obama Supporter

I saw this cringingly lame example of political street art in my neighborhood today and wondered what it must be like to be an Obama supporter. After Wednesday night's epic Rocky Mountain debate smack down by Mitt Romney, Barry's flock should be thoroughly embarrassed. But, "Fuck Romney Fuck"?--really? It sounds like what was probably sputtering through their minds as they watched their vaunted messiah implode so disastrously on national television--their Hindenburg, so to speak. So obviously at this point "Fuck Romney Fuck" is all they've got to offer. Wouldn't it be easier to just bite the bullet and admit that they were wrong? Even the despicable, treasonous mainstream media is now being finally forced [dragged kicking and screaming of course] to admit that their guy is a total zero.
How things have changed. I haven't seen any Obama street art anywhere around here and there's only a month to go until the election. Just four and a half years ago, starting in the early spring of 2008, this part of Brooklyn was completely awash in pro-Barry propaganda art. Most famous for the iconic and much-appropriated Hope 'n Change posters by skateboarder-turned-street "artist" Shephard Fairey, who is in fact, now no longer supporting President Empty Chair.
