For Real or Not? Obama’s Face on $1 bill cause he’s No. 1

Watchwoman:  Believe it or not?  You decide.  I dunno.  I have a feeling this is not altogether on the up and up because, note the date of June, 2011, in the article  — which passed us by several months ago.  But it makes for interesting reading (adding both a tad of a mixture of humorousness plus a huge toilet full of revulsion) aye?  The last line is sure funny, the Obama Dollar is worth 47¢.  ▬  Donna Calvin

WASHINGTON – The White House has approved the redesign of U.S. currency.  Barack Obama will be on the new dollar bill.

The Obama Administration feels that the American dollar is in bad need of a makeover.  They have partnered with the Dollar ReDe$ign Project to pick a new design for U.S. currency.  Currently, the design that the administration likes best was done by Dowling Duncan (a British duo), which features a unique vertical design.  It also features President Obama on the one dollar bill.

“We love the Dowling Duncan look.  They’ve come up with a creative design and put President Obama where he belongs… on number 1,” said David Axelrod, Senior Adviser to President Obama.

The Dollar Redesign Project was organized by creative strategy consultant Richard Smith.  He is still soliciting ideas for the dollar bill of the future. “Our great ‘rival’, the Euro, looks so spanky in comparison it seems the only clear way to revive this global recession is to rebrand and redesign,” the project notes on its website.

Here’s the web site for  The Dollar Redesign Project.

“Don’t waste your time submitting a design, it’s a done deal,” said Rahm Emanuel, White House Chief of Staff.  The President wants “change” in the currency and we’ve unanimously picked Dowling Duncan’s work.  Fed Chairman, Benjamin Bernanke, has signed off on our choice for the redesign.  We intend to have the money in circulation by June, 2011.”

Emanuel went on to say that there are plans to redo U.S. coins as well.  “We don’t need a complete redesign of our coins, but we do want to put President Obama on the penny and move President Lincoln to the nickel. Thomas Jefferson, who was on the nickel, will be… discontinued.”  Republican  Congressman Paul Ryan suggested President Obama be  put on both the “nickel and dime” instead of the penny.

Another American icon might also be replaced.  “Uncle Sam is outdated,” said Axelrod.  “We need to update this icon as well.  It will now be Uncle Barack.”

Republicans are apoplectic about the changes the Administration is proposing.  “They won’t get this passed when we get control of the house,” said Minority Leader John Boehner.  “Typical Republicans, they want to block everything, even a little meaningless design issue,” said Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.  “It doesn’t matter what they think, we’re going to pass this and every American will be carrying Obama dollars in their wallets and purses come June.”

FYI:  The Obama dollar will reportedly be worth $0.47.

Like his ego isn’t big enough by appearing on so many talk shows while not running the United States in the right direction. There have been so many better American Presidents like Ronald Reagan in our time that deserve to be on our currency and coins. It would disgust me to look at his face. I would definitely ask for my change to be in quarters! He goes down as our worst President ever and doesn’t deserve or has earned the right to be on anything.

I appreciate your insight on this matter. Nevertheless, I’m sure Obama would love to see his face (preferably like the commie red and black image he had for his HOPE and CHANGE campaign posters) on all the U.S. currency. After all, he is doing all he can to tax us all right out of every dollar we ever earned and will ever earn and put in under his discretion to disburse to any crony he wants to reward.

You won’t see Obama on the dollar bill, but we might live to see Ronald Reagan on the $50. A Republican Senator has introduced a bill to put Reagan on the Fifty. As for the currency redesign, you won’t see multi-colored US currency in our lifetime. The DollarReDe$ign project is an independent art project, and not some government or Obama thing. The Obama dollar is the idea of a British company.
