[pic] Artist depicts President Obama stepping on Constitution in Controversial Painting

My question is where were all these artist when George Bush was in office? Did he not trample the Constitution and get this country in the mess it is in now?

Provo, Utah (CBS Las Vegas) – In front of the White House a man is sitting on a park bench in the throes of depression. He is surrounded by all 44 presidents. In the forefront, purposefully ignoring the depressed man is President Obama, whose right foot is stepping on the Constitution. James Madison is next to Obama, pleading with him to stop.

This tableau is called “The Forgotten Man”, a painting by Jon McNaughton, an artist who is known for his politically-charged work.

The painting, which uses objects such as discarded dollar bills as symbols and scraps of paper with individual constitutional amendments scrawled onto them, has been making the rounds across the Internet.

The painting was initially released in 2010 and has resurfaced, causing a stir when it appeared for a caption contest on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow’s blog.

The responses have ranged from sarcastic — “We’ll trade you this peasant for that constitution. We’ll even throw in the bench.” – to Photoshop works of art.

McNaughton released an accompanying YouTube video for his painting. The video shows McNaughton painting the piece with a soundtrack that emulates a movie trailer.

  1. Yes, George Bush, Jr. was also a Progressive. So was GB, Sr. And John McCain.

    They did it slower than Obama. That’s why so many Conservatives allowed it to happen. They fall for that balogney “Compassionate Conservative”.

    And my question to you is, what’s your point? It wasn’t right then, and it’s not right now. Stop doing the “rah team” manuever, and start holding the current guy accountable. And the next one, too.
