RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR)- Signs are popping up in the Greater Richmond metro area that feature President Obama with a milk mustache and the words, “GOT FOOLED?”

The group RightMove has launched its National Billboard Campaign, called “Pick 5 * Convince 1,” in honor of April Fools Day.

Many of you may have seen the controversial signs popping up here in the metro area, including the picture of the sign above, located off of Robious Rd. in Midlothian.

The sign features a picture of President Obama with a milk mustache, and the words, “GOT FOOLED ?” on a yellow background, along with the group’s website address, at the bottom.

The group hopes that thousands will see the billboards every day between now and Election Day.

In a press release, they claim that the President will say anything to get your vote, and cite rising gas and food prices, along with a “stagnant economy” as proof that the American people were “fooled” in the 2008 election that saw record voter turnouts and the election of President Obama.
