SMH! New Anti-Obama Billboard Compares President to Aurora Shooter
Let's be honest, in this day and age we've seen some really over the top strategies to get the attention of the masses. Whether it be over the top radio ads or crazy campaigns designed by top brands, they've mastered capturing our attention. But how far is too far to get our attention? Well an Idaho billboard has definitely crossed that line.
The billboard above is one of the few that the Ralph Smeed Foundation has established comparing President Obama to the deranged Aurora, Colorado shooter. Apparently the Smeed Foundation feels strongly enough about the president's foreign policy to compare them to the acts of James Holmes.
According to KBOI 2 News, the group that owns the board, The Ralph Smeed Foundation, says it wants to draw attention to military men and women dying overseas. A spokesman for the group says everyone has the right to their own opinion. - GlobalGrind.com
Although everyone is entitled to an opinion their should also be enough discretion used to not boldly advertise a devastating shooting on a billboard simply because you don't agree with the president's choices. Life is full of opportunities to exploit situations but waiting until the president goes on a campaign trail to advertise your negative thoughts takes away from your point of view and typically ends up looking ignorant. There's a proper way to speak your opinion and I'm sure the negative attention from this situation will put things in perspective for many.
