    Were these drawn by the "Garbage Pail Kids" people? Style and level of humor are about the same.

    LOL Leo! I hurt myself laughing at some of these.

    A friend of mine has a bumper sticker.

    "Somewhere in Africa, a village is missing it's idiot." πŸ™‚

    • Gregory Charles

      I don't get it… He's not from Africa…


        He is if you dont believe in facts

      • Uberbrie

          you type like the way i would imagine a drunk jessica simpson would talk…

          • Lisa_Martin

            I am who I am Tyler. Like me, don't like me, no skin off my nose. Anyone who knows me in real life, they know that's how I talk when redneck roots peek through. πŸ˜‰ I could comment on your lack of capital letters, but I won't. πŸ˜‰ LOL πŸ˜€

            • Paul

              but you did

        • Gregory Charles

          But it's a joke that doesn't make sense. I am literally destroying my room right now in anger!

          • Lisa_Martin

            Gregory, if anything on the chive makes you that angry, dude, you gotta figure out how to relax. Wow. πŸ˜‰

            • Gregory Charles

              No!!! I won't have it! I'm going to go burn something to calm myself down. Silly bumper sticker makes me rage sometimes!

        • top dog

          And it's stupid.

      "it actually works on so many levels. said person is trying to make fun of Obama but is proving their ignorance."

      • Paula

        Yeah it works showing that Lisa Martins friend and Lisa for liking it are dumb fucking whores. Burn them with fire.

      My gun is much bigger than your's Lisa. And I'm not afraid to use it.

    #17, Thats real funny right thar, right thar,
    McCain , Palin cut in your hair, in ya hair.
    I don't think thats shopped, he must have did that one right after the election.

  • rick

    Yeah I come the Thechive for good laughs. I don't want stupid politics. Damn this totally ruined my whole outlook on Thechive. Might as well change the name to Theglennbekk.com

    • http://twitter.com/withquotation @withquotation

      you see politics. i see an homage of humorous pictures that has followed the Presidential office for centuries. Centuries!

  • alan

    I like how the national debt is Obama's fault and not the 15 presidents that came before him.

  • BravesFan

    #16 not that cool. I'm not an Obama fan, but think that's just a little far.

  • Negrodamas

    Meh, some were funny…but please, chive, explain to me how depicting Obama as a crack head sitting in an ally with a 40oz of MD 20/20 isn't racist.

    • Bob

      How bout you explain how it is?

      • Negrodamas

        Ok, Bob, I'll attempt to explain. Would it have made any sense or had the same impact if Bush Jr. or Sr., Clinton, or Reagan had been depicted in the same way? As a liquor swilling homeless crack addict? I'm sure you'd laugh just as hard, right? Tell me, why do you find it humorous?
        It was tacky when Bush was depicted as a monkey, so is this. It seems the best excuse that folks can come up with for justifying this sort of "humor" is "well, they did the same thing to Bush, so that makes it ok!". It's child-like reasoning.

        • Bob

          Wow, so you CANT explain why its RACIST? You explain why you dont think its funny, but fail to explain what RACIST about it.

        • Bob

          Can't wait till there is a white president again, so making fun of them will only be "tacky" again, and not "racist". Your double standards are glaring.

          • Negrodamas

            You know bob, you might just have a few points there. Perhaps I'm looking at this from the wrong angle. I suppose the humor could swing both ways, eh? I could see a depiction of obama as a hill billy, cousin fucking meth addict. Or say, a child molester, right? How'd that be for a laugh? After all, the man is half white. Thanks bobby, you've given me a bit of artistic inspiration for when the next white president is in need of some lighthearted mocking, much like the work in in this gallery. Best part of it all, no one can be insulted as racism no longer exists. Keep up the good work, fella!

            • Bob

              No you're right, racism is alive and well. It lives in people like you, who are determined to perpetuate it. One day I hope you may realize that the colour of your skin should not exempt you form critisim and mockery, esspecially when you're the POTUS.

              • Negrodamas

                Oh I have, you've opened my eyes, dude. That's why I made suggestions for some more humorous depictions. You wouldn't be offended by them, would you? Also, explain to me exactly what I said that makes me a racist. And think it through, because as you labeled me a racist for citing what I perceived to be racism, then that could make you a racist for calling me a racist, for citing racism. I truly would like to have your profound incite.
                Since nothing is off the table anymore, I'm sure you'd get a kick out of some humorous shots at people's religion as well. That's always an easy and fun. Got any ideas, bob?

    • SinisteRtheWickeD

      Yes, I do kind of see you're point, but then again it's not like there are representatives of all other races, creeds and ethnicities who don''t have members who do crack and drink MadDog 40oz, . but still…

      • Negrodamas

        Yeah, like I said to Bobby up there, would it have made any sense or had the same impact if Bush Jr. or Sr., Clinton, or Reagan had been depicted in the same way?

        • Paul

          I see Bush being protrayed at a Alcoholic Coke Addict on almost any mainstream comedy show. Everyone sees that as racist too right? Oh wait….. No they dont. They see it as a slight against the person, and not the race of the individual. Maybe you can learn something from that. But looking at your above posts, I doubt that will be the case.

  • Moby

    Ahhh yes. Look at how pro-free speech everyone is, until, that is, they hear something they dont like. Then its time to silence the oposition. LOL hipocrites.

    • Sarah

      We're not asking to silence anything, we're simply expressing our disagreement with the spirit or agenda or theme (whetever you want to call it) of this post. And we are at liberty to do so.

    • odd

      Free speech means you have the freedom to say damn near anything.

      Including voicing your dislike about someone else's free speech.

    • kmg

      Moby, the opinions expressed in comments to photo galleries are good examples of free speech

  • Scott

    Ooh ooh ooh, someone give me the link to the shopped GW images. He had 8 years of suck. His must be hilarious!!!

  • Peter

    Nothing free about a world where you cant poke fun at your government.

    Red Necks unite and paint yer necks!!

  • obvi

    I run the military nigga if you want that beef! I give a long ass speech and put your ass to sleep

  • lunche

    how are any of these racist?

  • Bolton

    The Chive WAS a guilt pleasure. Now, I just feel guilty. Good-bye Chive.

    • Paul

      Dont let the door hit you on the ass on the way out. Dont want ass prints on the door!

  • slin

    lame. Who runs this site? are you going for the redneck teaparty demographic?

  • NOUU

    #12 EXACTLY.

    • Chu Mai Huang

      Somebody has some big gay fantasy shoes to fill.

  • jake

    Funny to make fun of George bush . but not Obama? what scared you will be called racist?

    • Johnny Wadd

      No, most of these just suck. Mad Magazine rules, though. Obama is like an articulate Bush kid but the republitards and teabaggers lost their shit because he's half black. He gave us Mitt Romney's Republican health plan that nobody on the left liked. He gave us a bunch of tax cuts we can't afford and extended the Bush tax cuts we couldn't afford, like a Republican credit card junky. He kept the torture chambers open and the wars going and he didn't prosecute anybody for war crimes or crashing the economy. I think Obama was really born in Texas.

  • Jeff

    That's how it should be though. Either everything is funny or nothing is funny. I'm a republican and think the jokes on Bush were friggin hilarious. Never made it political, was just funny. Now it's come full circle

  • Dirt

    Anyone who doesn't find humor in this is a nimrod. Politicians are like diapers, they both need changing regularly and for the same reason. Obama is a fake MC, a condition endemic to both sides of the aisle.

  • disappointed

    This site is ran by mid-western white suburban raised kids… damn right there will be the undertones of racism. And looking at the comment ratings it seems that most of the chive readers are just a bunch of the same.

    • Mort

      Its amusing that the ones crying racism appear to be the only ones with a strong fixation on the race of individuals.
