Bad news: Creator of Obama "Hope" poster runs out of hope for Obama

“Obama has had a really tough time, but there have been a lot of things that he’s compromised on that I never would have expected,” Fairey said. “I’m not giving him a pass for not being more courageous, but I do think the entire system needs an overhaul and taking money out of politics would be a really good first step.”

Fairey told Esquire that he never thought Obama would compromise on issues such as drones and domestic spying.

He also said Americans are “uneducated and complacent.”

“What frustrates me to no end are people who want to blame Obama or blame anything that is something that if they were actually doing anything as simple as voting, it might not be as bad as it is,” Fairy said.
