Attack on anti-Obama billboard targets Phil West -- er, Phil Wolf

It was only a matter of time before someone created a video criticizing Phil Wolf for putting up an anti-Obama birther billboard at his Wheat Ridge auto dealership. We do live in the YouTube age, after all. Problem is, the creator of the clip above used as his guide a Channel 31 article that repeatedly refers to Phil Wolf as "Phil West."

A graphic midway through the piece wonders if "Phil West" is a Nazi. Dodged a bullet that time, Mr. Wolf.
