Here’s a Billboard Comparing President Obama to the Colorado Shooter

By

The billboard in Caldwell, Idaho — juxtaposing photos of Obama and James Holmes, who opened fire in a Colorado movie theater just a week ago — is owned by the Ralph Smeed Foundation, which told local KBOI2 News that the intention was to draw attention to all the servicemembers dying overseas. Although the foundation appears to lack an official online presence, its deceased libertarian founder Ralph Smeed is described on his website as a "not-so quiet blend of Barry Goldwater, Walter Matheau and H. L. Menkin" whose billboard messages "amuse, tantalize and provoke the citizens of Caldwell and SW Idaho."
