2k Words on Hollywood's Obsession w/ America's Worst President

If the people we put on our money is a reflection of who we think are the greatest American statesman in history, then it's clear what Hollywood thinks history will record of Pres. Obama.

Here's a screenshot of a $50 bill from the movie Total Recall (2012), set sometime in the future. Yes, that's President Obama's mug you see.

And this up close screen cap from the TV show Terra Nova, also set in the future. That would also be President Obama's portrait.

Yeah, I know, it's pretty subtle. And it's not like we didn't already know who the vast majority of Hollywood supports. But isn't it kind of odd that they choose the worst President in modern history as their hero? Jimmy Carter seems like a much likelier candidate for future monetary fame than Barack Obama.

Thanks to Grey who took the screenshots.
