Graffiti in Santa Ana: "Obama Lies"

What is it about Orange County and illogical graffiti? You'll remember Michelle's post yesterday about the pendejo who tagged "Osama Forever" yesterday off the 405 Freeway in Westminster. This morning, in SanTana's ritzy Floral Park neighborhood, someone tagged "Obama Lies" on perhaps the most prominent part of the neighborhood that's not SanTana mayor Don Papi Pulido's estate or the Tara House: the white wall on Santa Clara Avenue just before Broadway, the route that nearly all of the bougie barrio's residents take every morning to get onto the 5 Freeway

Gracias, Stephanie Richer, for the shot. As payback, maybe I'll finally attend Mass at St. Joseph's...
Obama lies...about what? Osama? The economy? The birth certificate? The Donald? Inquiring minds want to know!

As usual, I think we can safely eliminate cholos from the suspect list, because they probably still think Dubya is president...but whodunit?

The more I thought about the 405 graffiti, the more I thought that it was really meant to be anti-OBL, just really poorly and confusingly worded.

This...this is mostly likely residual disdain from March, when the tagger bet the farm on all of Obama's NCAA tourney picks.

Are we sure the taggers didn't mean to spray "Osama lies" and "Obama forever"? Maybe they suffer from the same affliction as Fox News anchors who always confuse the two.

I know; it's so impossible to believe that Obama is an empty-suit fraud. I mean, he's the anti-war candidate (oops), he's the the post-racial unifier (oops), he's the brilliant academic with economy-saving ideas (oops), he's the savior of the working man (oops), he's the foreign policy genius who was gonna get the muslim world to love us (oops). Wait - I know: this is that damn Bush's fault...

I also saw this same graffiti on the Main St./Broadway off-ramp from the 5 North freeway...

SanTana ritzy? I didn't think ANY part of that place was ritzy. Well, I guess for a city full of illegals it is.

If you want to see some more Floral Park graffiti, you just need to take a stroll down the Santiago Creek behind my house. Actually, I hesitate to use that word because "graffiti" implies there's either a message or some kind of artistic content to the spray painting. This is just an ongoing, never-ending collection of ugly tags. But I guess it's nice that TPTB (as the City and the County take turns saying they're not responsible for the Creek) make sure that it stays up so I can really enjoy the view from my back yard.

Connection?

The bridge that takes you to Main Place had some tagging saying No to New World government and there was a real estate sign that also had tagging saying Obama lies. Connection?

Obama lies about letting states rights. He lies about cannabis laws and that they are no longer going to waste money prosecuting people for cannabis where it is legal medically. But can you blame him? he is after all a politician and as we all know...If a politicians mouth is moving he must be lying.

Somewhere deep in the OC, Orly Taitz is maniacally scrubbing her red-tinted hands a la Lady Macbeth...

or OC Weekly contributors - who prefer to school us on how to be good little demagogues for whatever liberal cause-celebre that's convenient - & who continue to be Obama's bitches, painting him in the best possible light & lobbing him softballs instead of doing the hard work of fact-finding & true journalsm. Coker - fail. Again...

Onlyamatteroftime. You obviously have never been to FloraL Park, I think we should keep it that way. We are only intolerant of morons.

Tell you what, I'll make you a deal. I'll stay out of the hood. You stay out of Newport. Unless, of course, you are here to cut my lawn or detail my car. And stop trying to sell my a big bag of oranges. It's annoying.

I agree Gustavo. You are a pendejo. But why refer to yourself in the third person?

@Msnenasophie. Hey, Newport doesn't have anything to do with your own problems. So stop projecting. It's nobody's fault that you are ugly inside and out, that your hubby cheats, and your kids are a total disgrace. That's all you.

oooh, the Newport Bubble. The one that's overrun by plastic fake bimbos and cheating husbands and spoiled kids.
