In February 2010, a mysterious billboard appeared along I-35 near Wyoming, Minn. It showed former President George W. Bush smirking and waving along with the caption “Miss me yet?” This was assumed to be an expression of dissatisfaction concerning the performance of current President Barack Obama.
No one seemed to know who was responsible. Some details were revealed in a Feb 9, 2010 story on npr.com:
The Bush Miss Me Yet? billboard was paid for by a group of small business owners who feel like Washington is against them. They wish to remain anonymous. They thought it was a fun way of getting out their message.
The billboard was vandalized in late July so that the text read “No” after the original caption and a mustache was added.
However, the sign was put up months after a demotivational poster had circulated the web in September of 2009 comprised of the same text, though different picture of the former president.
Since then, occasional variations have sprung forth on the Internet that show a different image photoshopped onto the billboard, or an entirely different image altogether. Usually the caption “Miss me yet?” is included, although some variants exist.
On September 5, 2010 several Miss me yet images were posted on a fark.com thread regarding President Obama’s sagging approval ratings. The thread can be viewed at: http://www.fark.com/cgi/comments.pl?IDLink=5601598.
Some versions of the meme express the answer to George W’s question as a resounding “no.” Others appear to lack political motivation and are the product of mere whimsy.
