Small Business Waste

In the post below this one, I postulated that the "Miss Me Yet" billboard was some gimmicky prank in order to make some kind of faux-populist statement about Obama by someone that needs to spend their money more wisely. Turns our I was kind of right.

Mary Teske, the general manager of Schubert & Hoey Outdoor Advertising reports, "The Bush Miss Me Yet? billboard was paid for by a group of small business owners who feel like Washington is against them. They wish to remain anonymous. They thought it was a fun way of getting out their message."

Various people have stepped forward around the country to claim credit -- the latest was a gentleman in upstate New York from what I can tell in his e-mail. But, it's all local, folks.

Of course people are going to start taking credit for it now that it's the latest piece of viral media. I'm sure that Teske knows more than she's able to tell, and that there are more people raising their hand on this one than should be credited. But moreover, if this is the product of struggling "small business" people, wouldn't it stand to reason that they should be budgeting their money in a more "fiscally conservative" manner instead of using it to take pot-shots at the Obama administration?

reminds me of the story i read about from ft worth, texas...this lady owns a small business, something having to do with generators, she paid $7000 to erect a flagpole just so she could hang her american flag upside her business!

she claims the "country is in danger" due to the president and his policies, her business is suffering, and the flag is a "call of distress" how about she blows money on a "statement" and alienates clientele? AWESOME JOB!
