"Miss Me Yet?" Billboards Provide Motorists Fuel For Thought

A billboard near Fort Worth is causing some drivers to slow down and take a second look at a familiar former president.

If you happen to be driving along U.S. 287 near the border between Tarrant and Wise Counties, there's a billboard of former President George W. Bush, but it's the caption which reads, "Miss Me Yet?" that has some drivers wondering who shelled out the cold hard cash to pay for the advertisement.

That however, is a question that may go unanswered because who paid for the billboard isn't listed anywhere on the sign and the company isn't telling.

The billboard along this stretch of road went up a few weeks ago, but drivers say similar billboards have also popped up in other areas around Fort Worth.

Some motorists say they do miss the 43rd president and that the billboard serves as a reminder to the people who wanted change because change is what they're getting even though that change may not be for the better.

While most drivers say, it's all in good fun and they don't care who paid for the billboard, there are some drivers who point out that President Barack Obama is the current Commander In Chief and everyone should support him and allow him the opportunity to do his job.
