As if the Vero Possumus Pre-presidential Seal weren’t presumptuous and preposterous enough, the Obamessiah’s acolytes have struck a Barack Obama coin. Fittingly, the coins are produced in a foreign country:
A company in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter is making commemorative coins for American presidential hopeful Barack Obama. […] Windsor, Elizabeth & Windsor has already sold more than 300 limited edition commemorative silver coins to the Democratic Party to hand out to key members of the campaign to elect Obama. […] WEW is producing limited edition runs of gold, silver and platinum Obama coins, and plans to produce new ones in other finishes for public consumption if the demand emerges. […]
The company directors got the idea of producing the coins after seeing actress Meryl Streep talking about Barack Obama on a television programme. When they got in touch with the Democrats the party jumped at the chance. And the coins have proved such a hit that locally produced versions have already been launched to compete with the UK originals.
The coins show Senator Obama’s face, along with a picture of the White House and the legend “President of the United States of America”.
Not so fast, Barry. Hot Air comments:
Julius Caesar was the first Roman to put his image on coins, which started his downfall. Barack Obama may be the first person in history to start striking coins in his image before taking power. Maybe he just wants to look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills, but this is starting to get … creepy.
Obamania collapsing under the weight of its own absurd excess before the moonbat messiah gets a chance to wreck our economy is the best possible outcome to the entire farce of his candidacy.
