Wax Obama

A Waxy President Obama

Barack Obama's wax replica took office in several European capitals this week.

In Amsterdam, George W. Bush was booted to the sidewalk with his baggage (where he remained for about 90 minutes) as a beaming Obama figure was put on display in the window of Madame Tussauds Wax Museum.

Standing in Berlin between German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy at Madame Tussauds' newest museum, the waxy President Obama was smiling broadly with his arms crossed across his chest.


In London, Obama was installed Thursday amid a mock-up of the White House Oval office.


The first wax Obama was unveiled in February 2008 in Washington, D.C. More figures will be unveiled in New York and Las Vegas, while those in Hong Kong and Shanghai appeared on Obama's actual Inauguration Day, January 20.


The figures are created using professional sculptors and more than 300 detailed measurements, at a cost of roughly $260,000 each.

    @yela123, why do you think us Romney fans dislike Obama? He has no clue what he's doing. He's muslim, meaning he doesn't worship the true Lord God Jesus Christ && look at the back of EVERY dollar bill... IN GOD WE TRUST. Remember when it was those times? And Obama wants to build a muslim tower where the Twin Towers were and guess what Romney ALWAYS said.. IN GOD WE TRUST... Now ya know

    Usually I see them wear our school uniform. But whenever they get a chance to wear any colored dress to school, they wear jeggings and sleeve-less/half-sleeved tops. And their HAIR, OMG! They do SO MANY STUPID STYLES, even when they wear their school uniform, their hair is just in SO MANY STYLES!!
