    Obama money in the new movie Total recall? Really?

    Wife & I went to see Total Recall Yesterday- the old Arnold movie kinda remade. During one scene in the bank- he pulls out his safety deposit box & in it are stacks of money- one stack has the head shot of Obama?
    Really?
    Was this really necessary?
    Great presidents have been on money- Obama? What a slap in the face to the likes of Washington, Lincoln, Franklin. I believe it was the dollar that had Obama. Guess some idiot thought substituting Obama for Washington was a good idea.
    Really pissed me off!
    F Hollywood!

    He doesn't have to be great to get on a bill, just the first black president.

    You don't have to have been a President to be on US bucks. Look at Franklin. BO is also 1/2 white remember.

    True about Franklin, never occurred to me before. Does anyone know why that is?

    My question is: What has BHO done that makes him WORTHY of being on US money? Being the first 'black' president is not doing anything... it is more circumstantial. Rewarding anything other than achievement is kinda like playing politics... Oh, I forgot: Our system is about politics now... achievement is not important anymore. My bad.

    Maybe in the future they realized that obama made the dollar worthless, so they stuck his mug on there as a reminder.

    What BO has done, or any president for that matter, is always left to history. I remember what some said of Kenedy when he was in office compared to now. I know the world was astonished that someone like BO could get elected in the USA. With race, name, and past performance seemed impossible.
    The Republicans demonstrated really bad governing by jamming not only BO but American interests in their need to just grab power.
    Information in the US has become so tainted with self interest that any real journalism is rapidly disappearing and replaced by inept blogger and media misfits. Problem being much of America prefers the lies rather than taking on the hard work of discovering truth.

    your kidding, the goof was president for 2 months and he got a NOble "peace" prize.

    Most people get an Nobel AWARD. NObama got a prize, must have come from a Cracker Jack box

    Hadn't occured to me before either. Odd. I always falsly assumed w/o much thought that all the faces were past presidents.

    A little research points the finger to director Len Wiseman as the source of the Obama funny money. He also used his dad's face on another bill.
    Still..............................

    Yea, it's just a movie. Funny thing- the whole Obama deal lasted only a few seconds- seems my wife & I were the only ones in the theater who caught it.

    Still..............................

    Obama?

    I'd be willing to bet that it becomes a reality.

    Seeing that O has his hands in taking away our money and giving it away his mug would only be fitting.
    Although they should put on the change.
