Grand Junction, Colo. - A lot of people are talking about a new billboard in Grand Junction, Colo. which depicts the President as four caricatures sitting around a table: gay, gangster, terrorist, and Mexican bandit.

The caricatures are playing cards, and the caption reads: "Vote DemocRAT - Join the game."

The artist told the Grand Junction Sentinel that he's not allowed to say who paid for it.

"If it had been me, I would have included the Republicans as part of the problem," said Paul Snover, artist and well-known Tea Party activist.

Local Republican and Democratic party leaders are not impressed.

"It's beyond disrespectful," Mesa County Democratic Party Chairwoman Martelle Daniels told the Sentinel. "You would like to think that we all would show respect for our commander-in-chief, but this is just beyond that. It's racist, it's homophobic, and it's really cowardly."

The chairman of the local Republican party called it "juvenile."
