Subpar: Anti-Obama Street Art Covers Santa Monica

Benches in Santa Monica, CA


An unknown artist is covering the streets of Santa Monica, Calif., with posters declaring President Obama to be "subpar."

The artwork, which features images of Obama golfing with the message, can be found on trashcans, in Porta-potties, and on street benches, according to a taco blog in Los Angeles.

The appearance of the posters coincided with the PGA Tour, which was played at the Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, just outside of Santa Monica, over the weekend.

Obama himself spent President’s Day weekend on a three-day golf vacation in California.  He attended two events focused on the drought before golfing at luxurious courses in Palm Springs.

"Vacationing with DVDs of his favorite television shows and multiple golf outings with his buddies, the duffer in chief played at two of the most exclusive courses in the Palm Springs area," according to Time.

The president has played more than 150 rounds of golf since taking office.

While he still holds a 55.8 percent approval rating in California, Obama’s job performance overall has dipped to 42 percent.
