Indonesia Honors Presidents Day

The bloom is off the rose for Hopey Change in Indonesia:

Authorities removed a statue of Barack Obama from a park in the Indonesian capital due to a public backlash and moved it Monday to a nearby elementary school that the U.S. president attended as a child.
The bronze statue, inspired by a childhood photograph of a 10-year-old Obama in shorts with a butterfly perched on an outstretched thumb, had been targeted by critics since it was erected in the Jakarta park last December.

Already even the country he grew up in has had enough. If only it were this easy to get the real one out of the White House.

First Saddam Hussein, now Barack Hussein.
