Obama's Campaign Artist

Drones Killed All 'Hope'

EXCLUSIVE

President Obama's use of war drones is a buzzkill for the guy who created the 'Hope' campaign.

Shepard Fairey -- the artist behind Obama's 'Hope' poster -- was clearly disappointed in the Prez while bouncing from the Chateau Marmont last night. 

Fairey was crystal clear -- Obama didn't live up to expectations ... and the word 'Hope' should be replaced on future posters.

Many people credit Fairey's handiwork with igniting the grassroots campaign that got Mr. O elected.

What should replace 'Hope'?  Check out the video.

Sorry... his record speaks volumes. So many things have changed for the better under this president. The absolute DISASTER that would have befallen us had Romney won is mind-boggling.

Hmmm, what has TMZ done today? Oh that's right:
.
> Attempt to throw Lamar Odom under the bus with a bullshyte story.
> Attempt to throw Corey Booker under the bus with a bullshyte story.
> Attempt to throw the President of the United States under the bus with a bullshyte story.

Three black men, two basically unsubstantiated stories and an idiot who cares story. BTW TMZ, THIS is what America Wants right now:

Simple obama-voter simpletons can still repent for their complicity to bring their own country down in ruins -- as is the over-arching policy and doctrine of Hussein. But for this guy, among the inner-circle and top propaganda architects, there's really no hope.
No greater shame than him.

I'm not 100% happy with President Obama either. (Romney or McCain would have been much worse) However, I understand we don't live in a country that's run by a dictator and have 3 branches of government and the executive branch holds little power without the help of the legislative and lets face it, those idiots in Washington care more about their pockets than the average American. I'm more upset with congress (the one's who actually make laws or are supposed to anyway) and the a$$hats that voted them into power.

Obama truly has become Dubya 2.0. He's plunged this country into deeper debt, given his office greater, and more controversial powers, and made it his mission to silence anyone who opposes him (Snowden anyone?). And the sad thing is that his successor is going to do the same thing, regardless of which side of the aisle they sit on. The two-party system in this country is broken. We're no longer voting-in the best candidate, but rather electing the candidate who appears to suck slightly less than their opponent.

He wasn't Obama's "campaign artist", TMZ. That role was filled by four different people; including noted avant- garde/outsider-artist, Joseph Seefeldt.
