Springtime for Obama!

This is a German language poster from the Obamalord's current victory lap in Europe:


My question is, what office is he running for and in what country?


Yikes. The Obama campaign thinks this is a good idea? Patrick Ruffini has more.

Wow. Comparing Obama to Hitler? Isn't that just a liiiitle over the line?

I wasn't comparing Obama to Hitler, although others have been troubled by Obama's cult of personality. I am too. Nothing good can come of it.

No, I was pointing out the poster was made in the "Plakatstil" style seen in early to mid-20th Century Germany. This style feature few but strong colors, a clean, minimal look and bold, clear types.

It's nothing new. Other posters of Obama have been made in styles reminiscent of early Soviet propaganda and religious iconography.
