The Forgotten Man

I think this portrait speaks for its self. That's not the daily news he's standing on.

Naw, I think he's getting ready to tackle him. ;) pcture is well done, pretty striking.
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

I had gotten that e-mail a while back...the artist is amazing......The mainframe of the pic is the regular .blue collar[or white collar] average American...to the left is abandoned by the fundamentals of the constitution...the building block of our society and of Government....

Barrack is ''trampling'' on these rights as they were set forth by the founding fathers...it really hit home with me and the disgust of ..How our country once was.....and how it IS now.....!!!!

Thanks for keeping the pic alive-

You know, I've been looking at this painting, and I cannot find Teddy Roosevelt. Has anyone else found him?

Fourth head from the right, back row I believe.

Looks like TR is clapping with Clinton, FDR and possibly Stalin. Apparently our artist is not a fan of conservation our the national parks.

You know what would make this painting perfect? If Mitt Romney was riding in at full-tilt on a white charger and a flaming sword raised to smite Obama and his Planned Parenthood donation receipts fluttering behind him! Our maybe he should be riding a grizzly? Or Dick Cheney?

Cheney might shoot him accidently
