They are moving the statue from a park to in front of the elementary school where Obama went for several years. Why the drama-queen headline on your thread? It's no big deal and it won't end up on e-Bay.

I loved the headlines from the left, the garbage they used to spew out for the Bush Administration and what not. Just giving some loving back, trying to keep it equal, that's all, and enjoying doing so after listening to the Evil Halliburton, Contracts for Buddies, Oil Budies, and on and on for eight years.

You're comparing corporate greed during the Bush administration to a statue of Obama when he was 10 years old? LOLOLOLOLOLOL, that is priceless! I guess that's the only thing you could think of to make fun of, if that's the case we know we've got a good one in the white house!

I'm not comparing it all wedjat. It has no significance to any event, present, or past, it's just a made up controversy, but not for naught.

What outrage? The article says that no one minds the statue being at the school where it is now, and it does not mention ebay or craiglist. "some people do not like this one bit" ?? who?

Default I would guess people in Indonesia?

The AP reports "due to a public backlash "; maybe people in Jakarta?

In the village where Obama grew up they probably do not even have craiglist or ebay.

Besides who would want the stupid thing anyway?

It already is a garden statue, so whats the big deal.

Even the village people are ashamed of him to want to take down his poor little statue.

His statue did not even last a year over there, what does that tell you?

I will offer $1 for the statue and pay the shipping to me, I could use the fill for a hole at the end of my driveway!!!

Cheaper then fill dirt.

A lot of misdirected anger. May I suggest a milkshake? Milkshakes can always bring a smile to someone's face.
