In Obama We Trust (let's try this again)

I posted a question earlier about this, but my point was missed.

Would it bother you if a teacher had a poster of Obama that read "In Obama We Trust" in a sixth grade classroom?

My issue with this is the phrase "In Obama We Trust." I would be upset if I saw this anywhere, but an elementary school classroom seems really inappropriate. What are your thoughts?

And yes, as a conservative, I would still be upset if this was a picture of Bush with those words.

  • If this was in my childs school I would be going to the school and using my voice regarding my thoughts. I don't care who the president is, sounds like a Hitler type of statement.
