(CNN) – A political mystery of sorts in Minnesota may have been solved.

A billboard popped up north of Minneapolis on I-35 featuring former President George W. Bush's image next to the words "Miss Me Yet?" last December. But until Tuesday it wasn't known who paid for it.

While the identities of the sign owners are still unclear, the general manager of the advertising company who owns the billboard space told Minnesota Public Radio it was financed 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," said Mary Teske, of Schubert & Hoey Outdoor Advertising.

Schubert & Hoey did not return CNN's request for comment.

    NO! America and the world does NOT miss Herr Bush the Would-Be Dictator who shredded the Constitution for his own personal benefit and the benefit of his cronies so they could line their pockets while the rest of us lost our jobs.

    Miss the worst President ever – someone who makes Grant look competent, who makes Harding look intelligent and who makes Nixon look like a statesman! Hardly – he is now in his element hanging out with Jerry Jones in the owner's box at Cowboy stadium.

    Hmmmm – sounds like Bachmann's school-girl crazy antics to me. She didn't stop the bridge from crumbling from no maintenance, W didn't either.

    How many interstates? How many bridges? Some built in the 50s. 60 years old.
