Billboard: Does Anyone Have ‘Testicle Fortitude’ To Impeach Obama?

A billboard in Cleveland asks if anyone has the testicles to impeach President Barack Obama.

The billboard features the sentences “DOES ANYONE IN CONGRESS HAVE A SET OF THESE” on one side, with a cartoon image of a set of testicles, which reads “TESTICLE FORTITUDE,” underneath. The other side features a cartoon caricature of Obama and reads “ENOUGH WITH THE LYING … YOU’RE OUT OF CONTROL … IMPEACHMENT NOW.” (Full graphic pictured below.)

The owner of the sign, Nancy Sysack, said it’s important to be direct, though other locals interviewed thought the billboard was offensive.

“Sometimes you’ve got to put things out there in order to make a point and get people to turn their heads,” Sysack said according to Cleveland’s ABC affiliate. “There’s more graphic stuff in the art museum.”

In a recent interview Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) said that if impeachment were to happen Obama would have brought it on himself.

“So if an impeachment comes up, it’s not because Congress wants to do that, it’s because the president has chosen to bring that upon himself by not enforcing the laws on the books,” Yoho said in an interview with the Tea Party Express. “If he doesn’t like a law he needs to get that changed, not wave his pen and use his phone and he has arrogantly stated over and over again.”
