HUD Encourages Stimulus Recipients to Post Signs Praising Obama

Ben Johnson, Floyd Reports

The Department of Housing and Urban Development is telling recipients of the $787 billion stimulus bill to post highway signs praising big government – and Barack Obama. Internal HUD memos and e-mails show the agency tells states undertaking road improvements or building projects funded by the bill that posting such a sign is “highly recommended.” Among the suggested signs is a template that reads, “Funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, Barack Obama, President.”

It’s nice to see the mainstream media catching on to this. My friend Tait Trussell discovered more than a year ago that roadway signs touting the massive spending bill cost at least $1,000 each in his home state. (It appears to be down right now. Here is a cached version of the article.) I’m proud to have edited the article to bring this aspect of the story to the fore.

ABC News reported the taxpayer-financed political ads last month. One sign at Dulles Airport near Washington, D.C., cost $10,000 alone. Tennessee spent only "$12,931 and an average of $37.67 each." Rep. Darrell Issa, R-CA, and other Republicans recently offered a bill to defund these signs, which Congressional Democrats rejected.

Obama intended readers of the signs to marvel how his costly bills are “Putting America Back to Work.” Instead, readers should look at each one as a thousand dollars he transferred from their families to his 2012 reelection campaign.

    • Joe, you keep demonstrating that you have lost the larger debate.

      You can't say anything, you can't even pretend to think up why your failed ideology should be taken seriously.

      You lost, but then you're a complete loser so it's no big shocker.

      Get professional help.

      • Roger, you keep demonstrating that you are a homo sissy boy pusssy dick head.

        You can't say anything original, you can't even pretend to think up why your failed comments should be taken seriously.

        Your records are sealed, the ones about your being a child molesting POS but it's no big shocker because you're a yellow-bellied face sitting girlie girl.

        Get phucked.

        • You keep proving you hope so.

          Am I a father figure for you now? Just because your dad may have lived that way and probably raised you to be that way, it doesn't mean real men are like that.

          I don't have a record, Joe, you had a PI check on that. And the clumsy lie never holds up outside the defamatory comments you post here. It's simply not true.

          Roger,
          while you and I may not agree on just about anything, it was wrong and unacceptable for me to call you a "child
          molesting POS." I apologize for making that statement, and I have absolutely no reason to believe that you've ever been inappropriate with children. I hope that someday you can find it in your heart to forgive me.

      • poor homo sissy boy dick head is relegated to posting the same thing thousands of times. that's what happens when you huff spray paint.

  20. As a deviant sexual stalker you come to a forum about politics and of course have nothing to contribute, not that makes any sense.

    So, you want to make it a personal attack.

    You are a bigot and a fraud, you pretend as a progressive and openly homosexual man that there is equality then use that label as an insult.

    I'm not interested.

    But that aside, for you to use that label as an insult shows you have no integrity and simply can't be taken seriously, and of course nobody here has done that for years.

    And frankly, your family rejects you for many reasons and your lack of integrity is only part of it.

  21. This is a good time to remind you as a deviant sexual stalker that I don't discuss anything of a sexual nature with you, you're a creep.

Speak Your Mind
