Actually, I prefer green chilis... but the famous phrase "better red than dead" plays on Obama's perceived communist leanings.

Oh well... if I have to explain, it ruins the whole effect.

The further explain, the original phrase was "better dead than red." Better dead than red - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Later, during the cold war, leftists usurped and inverted the original to "better red than dead" [ie, better communist than dying in a nuclear holocaust.]
