(Newser) – It's getting to be change we can't believe in—a new “Hope is Fading Fast” T-shirt turns the president’s iconic poster into an indictment from the dissatisfied left. The shirt comes from FreshJive, a well-known LA streetwear purveyor with a decidedly liberal bent—founder Rick Katz once commented that, “Really what drives me is making that one T-shirt that says, ‘Fuck off, Bush.’”

FreshJive’s site accuses the Obama administration of “maintaining continuity with its disgraced predecessor,” citing among other grievances, his failure to close Guantanamo bay, his escalation in Afghanistan, and his use of “a radical version of the ‘state secrets’” privilege. You can order the shirt starting on Black Friday.
