This is a fantastic article I found this morning.  These are just a few excerpts, so be sure to read the entire article.

"There is something unsettling and very familiar in the Obama poster campaign which has plastered his image over the country. The posters depict the same graphic closeup of the candidate with one block word either "Hope," "Change" or "Progress" at the bottom. I knew that I had seen this before, and then it came to me that this image appropriates the graphic style of totalitarian Soviet propaganda."

"Coincidentally or not, the website for the artist, Shepard Fairey, who designed Obama's posters is called Obey and boasts on its homepage, "Manufacturing quality dissent since 1989," and the artist bills himself as an agent of "worldwide propaganda delivery."

How very dishonest of you. I notice the link "forgot" to mention that the posters they listed were not actually Obama posters. But hey rightwingers have never seen facts as as a reason to get in the way of their libel.

There is nothing "dishonest" in my post.  These are posters used to represent Obama, and can be commonly found at his cult gatherings....I mean rallies.

Right....because the left is just so honest, right?

Dishonest? Then why does his campaign fly the Che Flag?

Boy, you can hear the spin bots whirring now!

Well look what we have in the official Obama store.

And your point is?

Trying to put meaning into the similarities really sounds like a straw man fallacy to me. All candidates have people who volunteer their time who are questionable or otherwise murky.

My bad, it's an association fallacy I believe.

Well there is the fact that it doesn't. I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you are simply ignorant rather than intentionally dishonest. I am assuming you are repeating the republican lie of assigning the Obama Campaign blame for a che flag being hung in a unaffiliated office sponsored by people unrelated to the campaign who chose to volunteer for Obama.

But again, Republicans never let facts get in the way of libel.

But again, Liberals and Obama-bots never let facts get in the way of libel.

There, I fixed it.

Thank goodness there's someone new who can spew partisan hack from the left now, instead of us having the endless supply of rightist bullshit we get on this site.

It feels more evenly full of shit now . . .

As it gets closer to the election I'm sure we will see more Obama-bots around.

Mind providing actual evidence to prove this, since you are the one claiming it. Otherwise I'm going to have to call bull on it. It's either another spun story, or not all the facts were gathered. I won't go so far as to say you're lying, you're better that as far as i know.

I didn't see your original question before. 

My point is Obama has suspicious ties to Marxists, racists, and anti-Americans.  I find it interesting his most popular campaign poster, which is being sold on his site, is created by one of these people.
