The Truth? (Shouldn't We See The Journalists At Obama's Feet All Begging To "Shine His Crown"?)

"The Truth" by Painter Michael D'Antuono will be unveiled on President Obama's 100th Day in Office at NYC's Union Square.

And we love this mindfuck bullshit from the artist:

"Until now, Mr. D'Antuono has chosen to paint purely non-political subject matter, opting instead for iconic celebrity portraits and hard-luck romantic narratives. However, now the artist feels the need to make a statement."

Can anyone tell us what "statement" is being made if "this piece is a mirror; reflecting the personal opinions and emotions of the viewer"? [Underline ours.] Isn't this dim bulb actually avoiding making a statement? Or, by depicting Obama this way, trying to look brave without taking any heat? Trying to have his cake and eat it too?

Look, Artistic Pal O' Mine, here's what a statement looks like:

If you see Barack Obama as a mystical-powered anything you're a damn fool.

Now, Mr. D'Antuono, hang that up in Union Square and see what kind of reaction you get.
