If you look closely, Obama does NOT have big ears...they merely stick out. Costs about $1500 to pin 'em back if he actually gave a hoot, which he doesn't.

I agree does not have big ears. That is a comment that people with small ears would say. I pray he does all he and I hope for. It is a difficult task. This is one of the worst economies in history.

I've been trying for days to see who put Obama over the top over McCain. So it turns out to be the cabal of big eared people. I hope you are ashamed of yourself for electing such a demotic candidate.

I met Obama...president elect in 2005 early in the morning at midway airport, I bet he was going back to DC after visiting his family for the week-end. There was a lone old police officer escorting him to his gate. i could hear some people around asking "who's that guy?" I bet they all know him now, if they remember that moment.

We now know that the slave movement of the past has come full circle. America is now and will always be the land of milk and honey for evermore. No longer can we point our finger at the other person.Jim Crow, your day has come, it is now time for you too, to change. If not, pick up your assets and move back to the T-park.
