Pretty much summarizes the way they voted in November.

My hubby heard this, he said, ‘montle williams’ bought some, and he got this junk, was ranting on his show (whatever that is), hubby said heard he spent $200 on $20 worth of coins with stickers. LOL!

The commercials also irked me until I read this. Now they'll be a good source of laughter. I'm trying to remember the ad's exact words but it inferred that the coin was painted, now it only seems the sticker is.

Gee, there were people around that can still be fooled by the proverbial wooden nickel. Next thing you know they’ll be believing the 3 biggest lies, just ‘cause Obama said them. Lie one, “the check is in the mail” is about to hit them.

“The parallels of this and the Obama presidency are many.”

The coin is a metaphor for this counterfeit administration.

Did these morons actually think the US mint had struck a new coin for The One? Really?

If they are that stupid, they deserve to be separated from their money. Money deserves to be in smarter hands.

These coins are very good representations of Obama.

Neither he or the coins come with a certificate of Authenticity.

The American people were similarly sold a fraud with Obama’s presidency ...a colorful sticker over raw socialism.

I was at Bath, Bed, and Beyond a couple days ago and when I got to the cash register, there was a pile of boxes of those “Obama commemorative diner plate” you saw advertised constantly on tv last month. Right next to all the other “As Seen On TV” crap they are selling at a discount as well.
They were selling them marked down for 5 bucks! I’m sure those things are real high quality.
I got one and going give it to my father, the lifetime republican, as a gag gift for his birthday. He’s going to looooooove me.
