I have been waiting for this billboard. I am surprised it took this long for it to show up. The good aspect? It’s going to be up for six months, and as predictable as Obama is, he’s going to make the case for that billboard.
‘Impeach Obama’ billboard along Hwy. 41
OSHKOSH – A controversial billboard along Highway 41 is catching people’s attention. It calls for President Obama to be removed from office.
The spot, near the Oshkosh Correctional Institute, is also becoming a popular spot for motorists to pull over and snap a picture.
“The sign kind of struck me as being very forceful. I was driving up to Green Bay this morning and saw it. It just surprised me that a sign like that would be out there, that blatant,” said Gary Fox, of Waukesha.
Fox said he agrees with the ‘Impeach Obama’ billboard. The tagline is: ‘America’s small businesses are failing, help us spread the message.’
“I just think what Obama is doing and the whole administration and the Democratic Congress is just bad for business when you look at the deficits and everything they’re doing,” said Fox.
Jones Sign Company said the billboard went up on Thursday.
So, who paid for it?
FOX 11 went looking and it turns out it wasn’t a group of small business owners. It was Tom Wroblewski, an attorney in Menasha.
When we stopped at his office, he told us he isn’t ready to talk about it. Democrats, on the other hand, are ready to talk.
“I don’t know what’s impeachable about having a bad opinion about the President. I know a lot of people that would have impeached the last one,” said Jef Hall, the chairman of the Winnebago County Democratic Party.
Hall argues President Obama’s economic policies are helping small businesses.
“I can point to, here in Winnebago County, several businesses that are receiving contracts because of the stimulus plan,” said Hall.
Both sides say the sign does grab your attention; they just disagree on whether it serves any purpose.
Those who want to take a look will have some time. The billboard will be up for at least six months, at a cost of $1,000 a month.
