Billboard compares Obama to Colo. shooting suspect

CALDWELL, Idaho – A billboard in an Idaho town that draws a comparison between President Barack Obama and the man believed to have shot and killed 12 people inside a Colorado movie theater is drawing controversy.

The electronic billboard in Caldwell, Idaho, a suburb of Boise, pictures Obama and James Holmes side-by-side.

The text by Holmes’ photo reads, “kills 12 in a movie theater, everyone freaks out.”

On the president’s photo, “kills thousands with foreign policy, wins Nobel Peace Prize.”

The group that owns the board says it wants to draw attention to the sacrifices of military men and women overseas.
