"The Truth" by Painter Michael D'Antuono which was to be unveiled on President Obama's 100th Day in Office at NYC's Union Square.

Think the artist got cold feet with the controversy it has raised

He might turn out to be a rubbish president. No-one thought Brown would turn out be quite as bad as he has.

Make 200 word of Brown's competency in the PM job when in fact the situation is best described in two words
Promoted to Incompetence
A well known factor in business of course when an individual is Best left doing the job they were good at.

I just used that link as it showed the painting in bigger than thumbnail form - the piece about the artist getting cold feet is from a totally seperate link

with absolutely no artistic merit. The kind of thing that belongs amongst the stuff painted on velvet that 'students' peddle from door to door.

If anyone happened to see a collection of very bad paintings of Obama on the Telegraph website earlier this year, they will know that this one is not too far off being the worst. click here

And with regard to Gordon Brown, I agree fully with fourm member.

"...Promoted to Incompetence"

Isn't that known as The Peter Principle, named after Canadian Professor Lawrence Peter. IIRC it states that, in any hierarchical organisation, people rise to the level of their own incompetence.

Commerce and industry are full of middle-rank managers who are living proof of the Peter Principle.
