Just a month after unveiling a bronze statue of “Little Barry”, Indonesians have petitioned to have the statue torn down.
The statue of “Little Barry” — as Obama was known when he lived in the capital in the late 1960s — stands in central Jakarta’s Menteng Park, a short walk from the US president’s former elementary school.
Critics say the site should have been used to honour an Indonesian and 55,000 people have joined a page on social networking website Facebook calling for the statue to be removed.
“We’ve been discussing for the past two weeks what to do with the statue… whether to take it down, move it elsewhere or retain it. We’re finding the best solution,” Jakarta parks agency official Dwi Bintarto said.
It’s interesting that people are coming to their senses as to what Barry has done or not done. Here is a guy that has used his charisma and BS to attain political positions, but never stayed in them long enough to have anything negative attached to himself. A true charlatan and magician. Now we too have come to our senses and have realized that Barry is inept, incompetent, and a horrible hoax perpetrated on this country by the left. 2012 can’t come soon enough.
