It is an obvious photoshop job since Obama would never be handling that much cash. That would be Geithner's job.

Icon215 Newsweek Depiction of Obama as Lord Shiva Upsets Some Indian-Americans

Newsweek's depiction of President Obama on its latest cover has irked some Indian Americans who, fresh off Obama's visit to the world's largest democracy, are not happy with the image of the U.S. president as the Hindu deity, Lord Shiva.

Aha - so the whole Kenyan thing was a diversion! Obama is actually Indian - no wonder he's so happy to ship US jobs to the sub-continent. He was actually born in Lahore!

Zorg! Obama is Shiva who is the destroyer, and Natraja is the dance of destruction
