Videos: Obama greeted in Fort Collins by "Stupid" attack sign with typo

President Barack Obama's visit to Fort Collins yesterday spurred plenty of videos, many of which are on view below. But the funniest involves a critical sign placed on his motorcade route. As you can see, it reads, "You were here in 08' & you sold us like Cupid! 'Your' economy is a disaster! You must think we're all Stupid!!!"

Maybe so, since the 08 apostrophe should be on the other side -- '08 rather than 08'.
