Denver Obama-Jihadist Billboard Stirs Debate
This is odd. An Obama-Jihadist billboard seems to have upset some Denver liberals.

Surprisingly, an Obama-Jihadist billboard is stirring debate in Denver.
St. Louis Today reported:
A billboard showing President Barack Obama wearing a turban has sparked a lot of attention at the suburban Denver used car dealership that put it up.
The sign, completed Friday by artist David Lee, shows a grinning, cartoonish Obama and bears the words “PRESIDENT or JIHAD?”
Underneath the president’s image is a big yellow square with the phrase, “BIRTH CERTIFICATE, PROVE IT!”
The words “WAKE UP AMERICA! REMEMBER FT. HOOD” appear at the bottom of the billboard at Wolf Interstate Leasing and Sales, about seven miles west of Denver. The sign is visible from Interstate 70.
Lee said there were plenty of honks as he painted it.
“One lady came by and gave me the ‘shame, shame’ look,” said Lee, of Arvada, another suburb of Denver.
