Do a quick Google image search for President Barack Obama and you’re likely to encounter a number of questionable items, including Obama as Bob Marley, Obama as Yoda, and Obama as Baraka from Mortal Kombat. Some of them are amusing, while others are downright offense. Although you can dress Obama up as Sarah Palin without stirring much controversy in the process, apparently you can’t put the President’s likeness on a punching bag. According to a handful of patrons at an Indiana fair, that’s going one step too far.

Delaware County GOP spokesman Tom Bennington, who expressed that the punching bag was “mildly offensive”, added, “I’m retired military and I respect the commander in chief. From that perspective it was offensive and we asked to take it down and it was taken down.”

The offending punching bag features a cartoon version of the President wearing shorts and boxing gloves, as well as sporting a black eye. Bennington said the inflatable toy was supposed to illustrate Republicans “beating” Obama in the upcoming election, though, at the end of the day, fair officials seemed to understand that the object was more than a little disrespectful.

However, just because folks at an Indiana fair think it’s in poor taste to display such an item, that doesn’t mean you can’t go online an purchase one of your very own. A quick search online reveals the Obama punching bag is available from a number of different retailers, including Amazon, eBay, and Prank Place. If you currently have twenty bucks (plus shipping) burning a hole in the pocket of your skinny jeans, then, by all means, knock yourselves out. Just don’t be surprised if someone is offended by your brand new lawn decoration.

    I find this offensive reguardless who the president is. I was no Bush fan but I would never approve of something disgracefull toward any president of the United States. What kind of message does this send to other countries. Crap like this is the very reason I have turned completly anti-republican. There was a time when I voted both parties and considered myself an independent but no longer

      Obama has denegrated the office of presidentall by himself , he does not follow American doctrine and is hell bent on copying Europe’s economy and is destroying free enterprise and the American dream. I think the guy should hang as a traitor along with his corrupt czars.

The pot calling the Kettle black.Wish we had a better Republican candidate then Mitt NO-mny. Dont cut your nose just to spite your own face.

    This is why so many people accuse Republicans of having non-political based hatred of our President.

    If you want to show “Republicans Beating Obama”, there should have been a rich guy, with a lot of money flowing from his pockets, or a lobbyist.

    I was never a Bush supporter, but degrading the Office of President only degrades our country, and when the ‘other’ party gets in only invites ‘revenge’. We should be better than this.

    Oh. I thought this was AMERICA. It’s on it’s way to becoming OBAMICA

  • right2barearms/wdiscretion

    Wow! Republicans do make themselves look bad with this type of garbage.It creates hatred. It’s one thing to not like his policies and ways of doing things but another to promote hate and violence on our president.Think of how the Dixie Chicks music careers was destroyed expressing their freedom of speech respectfully against Bush. But this president has had more disrespect then any other president.Because of that I wont vote republican this go round.Just sad representation of America land of the free and equal rights! Yea RIGHT
