Obama Dollar

Barack Obama again warned about the kind of campaign John McCain will wage against him. When addressing supporters yesterday, Barry O said,

"What they're going to try to do is make you scared of me. You know, he's not patriotic enough, he's got a funny name, you know, he doesn't look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills."
When questioned about what he meant by the comment, O's spokesfolks were unclear, but were definite that the comment was not about anything untoward. So, lets compare a one dollar bill with Barry O's likeness and a five dollar bill with the likeness of Honest Abe.

Well, they look pretty much the same to me - two eyes, a mouth, and a nose centrally located. Okay, there are the ears. Obama has ears that would make Dumbo blush, but the placement is correct. So far, he looks essentially the same as any other guy on money, except maybe they were Presidents and are now dead while Barry O isn't.

Perhaps the difference can be found in what Barry O said last June.

"We know what kind of campaign they’re going to run. They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. ‘He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?’"
OMG! He's black! Does he mean he doesn't look like the other guys because he's black?

Nah, that couldn't be what he's meaning. His campaign guys say so.
