McNerney said that his art competition must be two-dimensional.

His requirements for these two dimensions are that...

1. The artwork MUST BE ANTI-AMERICAN

2. The artwork MUST praise OBAMA's socialistic programs and ideology


All other artwork which may tend to celebrate INDIVIDUALISM and the free-market capitalism which has made this country great will be CENSORED.

Have I been in a coma for the past 7 years? How can a second term congressman be hosting HIS eleventh annual art competition? Did Richard Pombo start this and now Mr. McNerney is trying to take credit for doing something good.

Admit it, even if McNerney walked on water and received a 90% approval rating you would still whine. You McNerney haters need to get a life. And, are Pleasanton residents really this small minded? Glad I do not live in your town. Hooterville should your town's name... :)

There are many talented students in the US. Hopefully, every student in the US will enter the competition from her/his district!

How wonderful to showcase the art to talented young students! VIVA!!!
