Update: George W. Bush 'Miss Me Yet?' billboard mystery solved

lgordon@ledger-enquirer.comFebruary 9, 2010 

Minnesota Public Radio news blog, News Cut by Bob Collins, is reporting that a group of "small business owners who feel Washington is against them" is responsible for erecting a giant billboard featuring a picture of George W. Bush and the question: "Miss Me Yet?" over I-35 in Wyoming, Minn.

At first, internet chatter labeled it as no more than an urban myth or Photoshop fake, but apparently Collins has seen it with his own eyes.

Just who paid to put this billboard remained a mystery up until this afternoon when Collins posted the following on his site:

"Mary Teske, the general manager of Schubert & Hoey Outdoor Advertising reports, "The Bush Miss Me Yet? billboard was paid for by a group of small business owners who feel like Washington is against them. They wish to remain anonymous. They thought it was a fun way of getting out their message."

So, that's the latest on the great billboard mystery.
