Controversial Billboard In Caldwell

Tools

By Andrew Reed

Caldwell, Idaho (KMVT-TV) A Caldwell billboard is making headlines across the globe.

The sign compares the president to accused Colorado shooter James Holmes.

It compares the reaction from the shooting in Colorado to president Barack Obama's winning the Nobel peace prize - even though troops are still in war zones.
The sign owned by the Ralph Smeed foundation is turning heads and getting people talking.

"What we are puzzled by is the lack of some sort of commissary equal outrage over the loss of life that is occurring in the Middle East” said Maurice Clements, President Ralph Smeed Foundation.

The foundation says they don't plan on taking it down, but they do change the board every week or so and will have different signs soon.
