    You got any quotes to back this up?

    Or is this one of those... any verbal criticism of the Romney campaign, or any of his surrogates, is tantamount to "supporting Obama" which equates with "worshipping Obama as Jesus Christ"

    I guess Glen Beck and I agree...

    Beck agreed with D’Antuono’s sentiment, saying, “Art is in the eye of the beholder, and this guy has right to do this. I think it’s offensive. I don’t think it’s close to reality, but whatever floats your boat, Jack. I support his right to do exactly that.”

    Apparently a seemingly mediocre artist has gotten himself quite a bit of attention with a cliché. I'd say he's probably proud of himself.

    Glenn Beck is a moron. I listened to him for a few seconds yesterday while on an errand as he was challenging his sycophant to name "Three other people who have been crucified." He thought it was funny to mention Peter being crucified (albeit no contemporary accounts of same exist) but said that didn't count because he wasn't wearing a crown of thorns (how the F would Glenn Beck know that? Is it in the Book of Moron?).

    Offense is your choice.

    I am sort of with Odie on this one. It is overt, heavy handed, and sloppy. All it gets from me is a "meh."
    To compare that artist's imagery with the allegory of the Chronicle of Narnia is ridiculous!.

    C. S. Lewis in stated that when writing the Narnia books he asked himself what would Christ be like if he was born in Narnia and Aslan was the answer he came up with. I don't believe that the artist asked himself what would Christ be like if he was born in the USA and concluded he would be as Obama. I feel his thought processes were a lot more convoluted than that and I also suspect that much of his purpose was to tweak Christian sensibilities.

    I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.

    I think Lewis created a story for children in which the same basic lessons of the gospel were put in an alternative setting, so that they would spark the readers' imaginations and ultimately their actions-to be able to rely upon their faith to sustain them and direct them in any situation or place,

    You voted against Romney hence you voted for Obama even if you didn't actually hit the switch for him. A vote for 3rd party loser was a vote for Obama in this election so that said, you voted for Obama IMO.

    Actually it's 10. People always leave out the 58th state Obama mentions in that line: "I've now been in 57 states. I think 1 left to go..."

    You do realize that if every Gary Johnson vote had gone for Mitt Romney, he still would have lost, yes?
