Tulsa’s Kenny Nipp painted his roof in support for President Obama’s re-election. He realized Tulsa’s Democratic Headquarters didn’t have a sign big enough for his yard. Nipp wants to tell surrounding Democrats they’re not alone.

Nipp has gotten tons of support and backlash for this move. He is upset and believes everyone is entitled to their opinion of their political party. Nipp says he’d never wish ill will on Republicans and might give a helping hand to someone that wants to paint their roof for Romney.
