A print ad running in the Washington, DC metro goes too far. Republicans, Democrats, and independents should speak out loudly and clearly on it, and its sponsor should voluntarily take it down.
The billboard spot for an upcoming anti-Obamacare film (I have no problem with that sentiment) ends “Go to hell, Barack.”
Like Mr. Obama or not, he is President of the United States — he is our president — and he and the Office of the Presidency deserve more respect than that.
Whoever wrote the ad may have a First Amendment right to run it. That’s not the issue. The issues is that it is in bad taste. Exceedingly bad taste.
A little decorum, please. Just a little.
