He's a Buddhist?

Apparently someone in Lakeville, MA decided that vandalizing a golf course was the best way to vent their disgust with President Obama, carving into the green " I 卍Obama."

But even a casual glance at the defaced green immediately tells you something is off: The swastika is facing counterclockwise.

Instead of insisting Obama is a stealth Muslim, are some on the fringe now contending he is a Buddhist?

Symbols, like words, mean things.

Obama said: "There's not going to be 40K troops for Afganistan or anything, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness."

So I got that goin' for me... which is nice.

I don't know what he is, but I know he is alien to America.

These vandals show the same intelligence as the protesters who don't include the bottom vertical in the peace sign and end up advertising for Mercedes-Benz.

I was in Ann Arbor this weekend and saw one of those Mercedes Benz signs set in sidewalk concrete. It said "Peace", and had a heart, and had a Mercedes Benz symbol. There's really no way around it. Hippies love Mercedes.

And someone in Lakeville actually feels that Obama is the path to religious enlightenment. Symbols mean things. You know, we've been told that 52% of the US population literally believes he's the Messiah. They really believe that crap.
