Idaho Billboard Stirs Controversy

by Kymberly Bays, published

A political billboard comparing President Obama to the Colorado movie theater shooter is causing outrage in Iowa.

It shows side by side pictures of the suspected Colorado shooter and President Obama, in mid-laugh. It reads: "Kills 12 in movie theater with assault rifle, everyone freaks out. Kills thousands with his foreign policy, wins Nobel Peace Prize."

The Idaho Statesman first reported on the billboard and a regular commuter's response:  “I don’t care if you’re Republican or Democrat, it was just beyond bad taste.”
