Jon McNaughton's The Forgotten Man

The Forgotten Man, a painting by artist Jon McNaughton, shows Obama treading on the Constitution, surrounded by all other Presidents who are either cheering him on (FDR, Clinton, Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson) or reacting in horror (Madison, Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, Reagan, Lincoln). Nearby sits a man representing the people in America.

I hadn't seen this before today.  It was released in 2010 and resurfaced recently on MSNBC.  Apparently, the left, for some reason unbeknownst to me, considers this "controversial." Looks pretty accurate to me.

This from McNaughton explains the background of his painting.
