    I wonder if there was a deal between BHO and the hollywood crowd which supports him? BHO seems to have an ego larger than the 5 great lakes combined... having his face on money would be in line with his (overblown) ego. OTOH; perhaps BHO knows his gig is about up and this is as close as he will get to what he wants; immortal fame.

    We need a humble president... rather than a blow-hard. Humility is not a sign of weakness... rather a sign of maturity and strength and wisdom. Those qualities seem to be backseat these days... regardless of whether or not they work. Wonder why?

    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.

    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?

    Funny you mean the father of communism in America and what you call economic follies is the destruction of the American economy. I really thought you were smarter than this printer much less a gung ho Obama supporter. Thank you, thank you very much

    No, never liked the guy. Just answering the question put forth.

    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.
    Tracers work both ways.

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

    A NOBEL PEACE PRIZE is pretty much meaningless. Just an opportunity for socialists to pat comrades on the shoulder in the public eye. Meaningless.

    although I will agree with you for the most part, Henry Kissinger deserved a Peace prize. He actually made peace between to warring factions

    They had a pretty light lineup when OB was suggested, everybody shrugged and said, why not.
