On Wednesday, July 23, 2014, when President Barack Obama was in Southern California on yet another fund-raising junket to benefit his fellow Democrat politicians, he may have seen bus stops decorated with posters adorned with his face. These were not the Obama Hope posters designed by Shepard Fairey that became icons of the 2008 presidential campaign. These new posters appearing in the affluent Los Angeles neighborhood of Hancock Park were inspired by street artist Sabo, a retired Marine- turned guerilla artist. Instead of the optimistic fantasy of the Hope posters, these images were starkly urban and reflective of today’s actual scandals and multitude of unresolved issues plaguing America under the Obama Administration’s myopic leadership.

Mitt Romney, appearing relaxed and casual wearing blue jeans with a blazer, shirt and tie, slow-jammed the news last night (January 24, 2014) on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Governor Romney and Mr. Fallon talked and rapped on topics ranging from President Obama’s upcoming State-of-the-Union address, the NSA spying on American citizens, the flawed Obamacare program, and Governor Romney’s “47%” gaff in his unsuccessful presidential campaign.
