The Great George W. Bush Billboard Mystery

February 10, 2010



UPDATE: Morphyne.com is taking credit for the billboard claiming they spent only $1,200 for the ad space.
When word first circulated around the Internet of a billboard showing a smiling George W. Bush emblazoned with the message "Miss me yet?" some thought it was another viral e-mail hoax.

But it wasn't.

The billboard along Interstate 35 near Wyoming, Minnesota is real.

So who bought it?

And why?

Mary McNamara, general manager of Schubert & Hoey Outdoor Advertising in Minneapolis, says the billboard was purchased by a group of small business owners who wish to remain anonymous.

Some of the business owners, McNamara says, are small business owners who support President Barack Obama who want to convey a message of change.

Democrats aren't buying that story.

Cindy Erickson, chairman of the Democratic Party of Chisago County, Minnesota -- location of the billboard -- feels the ad's buyers are actually conservative activists claiming to be Obamacons.

"My thought was that they're Tea Party people," she said.
