Nothing at all, as evidenced by these billboards Dan Blatt saw on I-70 near Fort Riley:

    I drove this country from one end to the other.  I did not see a lot of pro Obama bumper stickers.  Except in the Taliesin parking lot at Spring Green, Wisconsin and in downtown Madison.  Even Illinois was surprisingly free of da One stickers.  Why is that? 

    I am not underestimating da One’s support, but it does appear to be waining.

    The hatred…it’s just trickling down, for now, I can’t wait
    for the general election campaign to begin to see it all ooze out in all its
    unrestrained glory.

    No need to wait.  It’s oozing out already:

    Obviously, Jeff, those billboards have to be taken out.

    I can’t wait for the zero to be defeated. Perhaps I’ll volunteer at a suicide hot line.

    As allways you are a Dungbat.

    I’m sure that there’s plenty of suitable literature available from the extensive writings of Dr. Kevorkian.

    Obama’s new slogan:  “Waning the Future!”

    I would paint for them an inspirational picture of the future. A Nation embracing markets free of government efforts to pick the good guys. A Nation where showing the flag and other celebrations of American Exceptionalism was championed by the people and its leadership. A Nation where discrimination for or against persons based on race, gender, ethnicity or place of origin would no longer be encouraged or subsidised.
    Given a little time this could go on for several pages. I shall give this some more thought in preparing for my new career in volunteer work. I shall endeavor to inspire the despondent to embrace the new dawn of National prosperity and greatness and if failing in that effort…I’ll just recommend that the discombobulated lefties go live under a bridge

    I started humming the Patton theme.
    This could do some serious damage …….I mean, this could help bring them back from ledge.

    I give Ann Barnhardt a lot of credit.  I’d be afraid to have my name on display like that.  There are a lot of crazies out there, and they’re not all in D.C.

    After you get through reading the first few pages, if you hear a loud blast followed by a dull thump and then silence, you’ll know it worked.

    Don’t underestimate the efficiencies gained by having them “living” them under a bridge.
