I don't even.

'An effigy of US President Barack Obama was burned over the weekend by members of the Conservative student association at St Andrews University.'

'The university said it was aware of the reports and was seeking clarification.

Suggestions that the effigy was also wrapped in an EU flag have been denied.

In a statement, the university said it had asked to meet the president of the society to discuss "very understandable concerns".'

On unrelated news, here's Mikhail Gorbachev in a 1997 advert for Pizza Hut: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9lvzzH0STw&feature=player_embedded

I'm still trying to work out why America are starting to dislike Obama..

But then I haven't been paying much attention.

The conservatives hate him because he's an educated, socialist muslim who is a part of a baptist church that hates america and he wasn't born in america blah blah blah.

Liberals hate him because he's too conservative and bending over to the conservatives and selling out the democrats.

Everyone else hates him because he isn't putting his foot down and being a leader.

Though in all honesty, the entire government has a low approval rating.

He's actually fairly popular with liberals and moderates, but the former kinda dislike him because he panders to the right much too liberally (eh, eh?). The conservatives hate him because he's not a theocratic christofascist.

Because everyone blames him for all the crappy things that happen in America even though congress is the one that passes laws and legislation and he has no control over what they pass.

Probably has something to do with the fact that, despite all his promises of improvement, he's tripled the national debt in less than 3 years, the cost of everything has gone up, and the economy has NOT improved. He came into office with all these great ideas, and they either didn't happen or made things worse. So...you decide...

inb4 someone arguing about how Obama is the greatest...

OT: Both of those links are screwed up, TS.

Half of that isn't his fault though.

Irrelevant. People still blame him, because he's still the President.

I know. It was more that the Obama hate is caused by peoples lack of intelligence and knowledge of their own political mechanisms, not his apparent failings.

This was at my uni. Apparently Leftsoc also burnt an effigies of Thatcher and Cameron.


Quote by Saint78
inb4 This is classified as "racist."

This happened as soon as it was reported. Fortunately the Students Union and most at the uni realise it was probably not racist considering they've burnt effigies of others as well.

Yea I fully agree but it was a few members of one society at the uni. Sure St Andrews is very conservative, it's a posh uni, but it was only a small minority of students who participated in this.
