    The sign will probably be taken down in a few days, but it was a good idea. The company took advantage of a good opportunity for advertising/association even if it was for a brief time. In advertising, "buzz" is key.

    As is always the case, the controversy will gain them more publicity than the advertising ever would anyway.

    Hell, if companies are willing to pay him for use of his image, I say go for it. Monies strictly used to pay down debt. :D

    That's pretty cheeky of them.

    Surprised their execs haven't disappeared along with the poster to a location unknown yet :p

    I think it was a little low for a company to use an image without permission. Plus Pres. Obama is a lawyer idk if I would mess with a lawyer without going over legal jargon.
