There is an anti-Obama billboard comparing President Obama to Fidel Castro in Gladewater, TX. The billboard has pictures of Obama and Castro with the word "Change" over their heads and "Vote Obama" under their portraits. Off to the right side the text reads "Coming Our Way". Someone poured gasoline at the base and started a fire. The billboard is at the top of a 30-foot-pipe and was undamaged.
