Protest day on Thayer

Hipster protester poses with Hitler-Obama — Anne Simons / BlogDailyHerald

Great. Another Obama as Hitler poster. The Glass-Steagall reference is to a law that created the FDIC and introduced some banking reforms. The law was repealed in 1999, an action some politicians and economists believe served to worsen the economic crisis of 2007. Obama has spoken out against the act that repealed Glass-Steagall, so one wonders why a someone who wants to bring back the law would want to impeach Hitler-Obama. Ignorant protester or am I missing something?
