I bought two of these for $8 each when the president first came into office. Walgreen's had them for awhile but apparently too many complaints came in, so they removed the item around 2010. Someone offered me $50 for the other. Who knew? Problem is, I couldn't get the "hair" to grow very well on the first one.
This Chia President may not be as intelligent as the real one but it certainly has more common sense. It was a gift for a true Obama fan (a union auto worker) who displays it proudly in his kitchen. I don't feel that this is a derogitory product (unlike the toilet paper) as he is our president no matter how foolish we were to elect him!
No doubt this will some day become a collectable icon of a controversial presidency. In the meanwhile your friends won’t know if you’re celebrating or making fun of President Obama but either way it’s a neat bit of growing greenery to brighten your day. After all how many politicians can claim to be a Chia pet?
