    Does billboard comparing Obama to alleged shooter go too far?





    Caldwell billboard is raising questions in the Treasure Valley as it compares President Obama to accused Colorado killer, James Holmes.

    The billboard on Franklin Road equates the actions of the president's foreign policies to the acts of Holmes, who's suspected of killing 12 people in the theater shooting.

    The group that owns the board, The Ralph Smeed Foundation, says it wants to draw attention to military men and women dying overseas.

    "(It's) way over the line, and I am not an Obama supporter," Lynn Davis Hathaway, said on the KBOI 2News Facebook page.

    A spokesman for the group says everyone has the right to their own opinion. | Additional photos of the billboard

    Ashley Helton, who also wrote on Facebook, agrees with the group.

    "It's a free country, this group has a right to voice their opinion no matter what anyone thinks about it," Helton said.

    President Obama recently visited the Pacific Northwest - making stops in Portland and Seattle.

    You might as well put every U.S President on that billboard then, not just Obama.

    The disrespect for the office of President in this country is sickening...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    Every post-World War II President should have been tried for war crimes.

    It's been brought upon by themselves. Election years are full of campaign ads trying to convince the public how terrible of a human being they're opponent is. They're marketing strategy is to get people to hate the other guy. And that hatred carries over regardless of who gets elected.

    There's some truth to that, no doubt about it. However, when you see pundits ripping into them, and your average joe talking about the POTUS like he is some dirtbag, it's disgusting. I'm far too young to remember the Reagan and Bush 1 years, but I don't remember it being this bad with Clinton. The left was pretty mean in regards to Bush I, and now the right has taken it to a whole new level with Obama. We've become a country that thrives on hate. It's depressing...

    Where were these billboards when Bush was El Presidente?

    I'm surprised they didn't call him a Dune Coon or the N-word with it up in Idaho.

    When it comes to his drone bombing policy and continuation/expansion of Bush's war policies. He deserves it. I agree there is a lot of other BS Obama get's attacked on ie. muslim, birther and socialist. But war crimes is totally legit.
