Obama Bumper Sticker Removal Kit

Posted on Jul 19, 2010

The pitchman in this video is a conservative Christian comedian (according to his alliterative Wikipedia entry), but his Obama Bumper Sticker Removal Kit, which appears to be an actual product, might sadly have a market among disaffected progressives.

Have you ever noticed how many “Conservative Christians” are driving around with Bush Cheney 04 bumper stickers?

As Durante said, “Everybody wants to get into the act!” And here I thought that the premier christian comic was that guy Benedict!

We’re screwed anyway we go….

  America is still going to elect either

  another Bush, or another Obama….

  We deserve what we do to ourselves,  but the rest
  of the world sure doesn’t deserve what we do to them.

I HEAR ALL THESE COMPLAINTS ABOUT PRESIDENT OBAMA; BUT WHAT PEOPLE NEED TO UNDERSTAND IS THAT GOD ALMIGHTY PUT HIM THERE AND HE IS THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN REMOVE HIM; SO ALL THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH HIM, HAS A PROBLEM WITH THE GOD WHO PUT HIM THERE; SO MY SUGGESTION TO YOU IS, TO TAKE IT TO THE MASTER ABOVE. IF GOD BE FOR YOU WHO CAN BE AGAINST YOU?  TO THE SO-CALLED CHRISTIAN COMEDIAN THAT MADE THE STATEMENT ABOUT THE OBAMA REMOVAL KIT, IS JUST THAT, A SO-CALLED CHRISTIAN, BECAUSE IF HE WAS TRULY A FOLLOWER OF CHRIST, HE WOULD KNOW THAT AN AUTHORITY FIGURE THAT GOD HAS PUT IN PLACE SHOULD BE HIGHLY RESPECTED, WHETHER YOU THINK THE PERSON IS GOOD OR EVIL, YOU HAVE NOT BEEN GIVEN THE AUTHORITY TO JUDGE HIM; THAT’S GOD’S JOB, NOT YOURS, OR ANYONE ELSE’S.  IF HE WAS WHITE, EVERYONE WOULD HAVE MORE RESPECT FOR HIM. I FIND IT VERY DISRESPECTIVE TO MAKE FUN OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. BUT I WANT TO ENLIGHTEN ALL OF YOU ON A LITTLE FACT; YOU DON’T HAVE TO ANSWER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA, BUT YOU DO HAVE TO ANSWER TO A HIGHER POWER, “THE ALMIGHTY GOD-THE CREATOR”. YOU ARE NOT JUDGING PRESIDENT OBAMA, YOU’RE JUDGING THE ONE WHO CREATED HIM, AND PLACED HIM IN THE POSITION THAT HE’S IN. REMEMBER GOD IS IN CONTROL; IT DOESN’T MATTER WHO VOTED OR WHO DIDN’T VOTE FOR HIM, GOD AWAYS HAS THE FINAL SAY SO. GOD PUT HIM THERE, SO GET OVER IT, BECAUSE HE’S GOING TO BE THERE UNTIL GOD SAYS OTHERWISE. SO I SUGGEST TO YOU TO GET ON YOUR KNEES, REPENT OF YOUR SINS AND PRAY FOR THE NATION’S PRESIDENT,AND ASK GOD TO GIVE HIM THE WISDOM TO DO THE JOB THAT HE HAS BEEN CALLED TO DO.  IT’S DOESN’T MATTER WHAT YOU ALL THINK HE SHOULD BE IT’S WHAT GOD AND GOD ALONE WANTS. TALKING ABOUT HIM, MAKING FUN OF HIM, CALLING HIM OUT OF HIS NAME, DISRESPECTING HIM AS OUR NATIONAL LEADER WILL NOT CHANGE WHO HE IS OR WHAT GOD HAS CALLED HIM TO DO FOR THIS NATION.  IF YOU WOULD TAKE TIME TO READ YOUR BIBLE INSTEAD OF WORRYING ABOUT THINGS YOU CAN NOT CHANGE MAYBE YOU WOULD NOT HAVE TIME TO PASS JUDGEMENT ON PRESIDENT OBAMA. GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU THAT’S HAVING A PROBLEM WITH OUR PRESIDENT; SEEK GOD’S FACE FOR THE PROBLEMS YOU ARE HAVING AND STOP TRYING TO PUT IT ON PRESI8DENT OBAMA. JUST REMEMBER YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW; WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND.  JUDGE YE NOT, LEST YE BE JUDGED. THANKS!!!!!

That sticker would be inadvertently funny because the current deficit makes
Bush’s deficit look like a surplus and because Obama could have canceled TARP if
he thought it was a bad idea.  So I encourage you to use your sticker idea.

yep - removing them all is the ticket - how much removal?

La Place de la Concord ring a bell?

All of Capitol Hill is wholly owned by Wall Street and it’s widely known - that’s
where it starts- want to start solving the problems? start with the biggest of the
lot - Global Finance Oligarchs - a few dozen heads roll (literally) and the rest will
begin to see the light - drastic times, drastic measures… who’s got the guts?

or maybe you’d rather just keep feeding your progeny to their endless, mindless
Global War Of Terror, while making them richer by the hour

“I don’t suppose any one has pushed the idea that this tool could also be used to
remove all those Bush/Cheney stickers that some people are still driving around
proudly flaunting?”

Why would they wanna remove them?  They’re feeling vindicated now while the
Obama-bots are drowning in recrimination.

I voted for Obama when I was living in Florida and also gave to his campaign and showed up at rallies.

I will NEVER make that mistake again. 

Obama promised FDR but delivered Bush’s 3rd term.

Beck, Palin and O’Reilly can tear him apart for all I care.  They can have him.  Real progressives should be busy getting Obama impeached and finding a true progressive candidate to undo the Obama/Bush legacy.

It probably isn’t just the right-wingers that are pushing this item. There are probably a lot of voters who are now feeling betrayed by the white man in a black man’s skin, as Ralph Nader described Obama. Of course people screamed it was a racist comment because it was a too complicated reference to the manner in which Obama had risen to prominence for them to comprehend. And I don’t suppose any one has pushed the idea that this tool could also be used to remove all those Bush/Cheney stickers that some people are still driving around proudly flaunting?

And to think, we wouldn’t have to be where we are if only people were smart enough to figure out that voting for the lesser of two evils isn’t the only choice. We could have had Ralph Nader. Now that’s change I believe in!

Any true liberal or progressive should buy that product and remove the stain from their bumper to hide the fact they ignored Nader and elected a slick con man who is actually ultra-right wing.

this b(rad) s(tine) confuses as to whether
“conservative christian comedian” is an oxymoron or a
redundancy.

Just another dude that is mad his team is losing.

It would have been much funnier if someone would have every dem/repub
presidential candidate since whenever they started making these stickers
symbolizing all of them have been bad and pretty much the same.
