Obama's Billion-Dollar Re-Election Campaign Stiffs Artists

President Obama is the gift that keeps on giving. In addition to traveling at government expense whenever possible to deliver campaign speeches, a Daily Caller article brings up the point that artists are expected to design "support American jobs" posters for free, with their compensation being an autographed print of their poster. The terms of this design competition are stingy to the max: all proceeds will go to the re-election campaign, and artists grant an unrestricted unpaid irrevocable license for every poster submitted - in other words, they lose all rights to their designs.
