Why So Serious?

August 11, 2009

Since President Obama’s earliest moments in office, one of the biggest issues on the agenda has been healthcare reform. Yet as the clock ticks, many Americans have expressed disappointment, asserting that the healthcare goals are far from having been met and that they may have even been poorly planned and misguided from the start. As a means of voicing criticism, the word “socialism” has begun to create a loud whisper, but the assertion is not without visual aids, the most recent of them being President Obama depicted as the Joker. via Racialicious

The artist of the image is unknown, but it has been found posted in cities like Los Angeles and Atlanta

Thoughts?  Is this image racist or just an example of political satire?  How is Obama performing as president?  Living up to expectation?
