Republicans in Indiana Throw a ‘Jab’ at President Obama

Republicans in Indiana Displayed a Punching Bag with President Obama’s Face and a Black Eye

Republicans in Muncie, Indiana, created a stir when they placed a punching bag depicting President Obama as a boxer with a black eye outside of their tent at a local fair. It was displayed at various times Monday through Wednesday at the fair in Muncie, about 50 miles northeast of Indianapolis.

Delaware County GOP spokesman Tom Bennington says he thinks the bag was placed outside the tent by party leaders. Bennington says the bag was “meant in fun” to portray the Republicans’ hope to defeat President Obama this election year; however, he admitted he found the punching bag to be “mildly offensive” because of how it portrayed the military’s commander in chief.

The punching bag was removed after fair visitors- including at least one Republican- complained about it.

    This goes to show how Republicans produce Violence in the United State, and they call themselves Politicans, yeah right.

    Monkey see and Monkey do, like in colorado, Arziona and etc.
    When Republicans grow-up maybe we will be do something about “Violence” in America.

    If you read about the Iraq War, you will know who and why we shouldn’t have been there.
    Search and read Frontline THE DARK SIDE via psb.org, and if you want to know who and why we expereinced the worst economy crisis since the depression. Read “Money,power, and Wall Street”. You will know all you need to know about the Republicans.
