Va GOP hits graphic of zombie Obama shot in head
Associated Press ^ | Oct. 31, 2011 | BOB LEWIS

Posted on 10/31/2011 4:18:12 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- A Halloween-themed graphic featuring a zombie President Barack Obama with a bullet hole in his forehead provoked widespread outrage and the attention of the Secret Service Monday after a local Republican committee in Virginia used it to scare up interest in Halloween parade political activities.

The montage, a banner on a mass email to Loudoun Republicans, mingles seasonal images including a jack-o-lantern, a disfigured U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi and a throng of flesh-hungry zombie Obama supporters.

My question is why did they need to make up a picture of Obama looking like a zombie? He looks like one already!

That was a very, very bad idea. Of course the Secret Service would be all over that.

I hope this just a case of the forgotten sarcasm tag.

After all during the GW Bush administration we had a book on how to assassinate the president a movie of the same and little out cry about either. And I ddont recall the SS being all that worried about it.

And let’s not forget that the graphic of Bush as the Joker predated the Obama as the Joker.

It seems odd that political humor becomes unacceptable when a Democratic President comes to town.

“Sounds bad but I notice they didn’t print the image.”

Don’t worry, the Democrats do have the picture of Obama with a bullet in his head and you will see it again and again on campaign commercials in 2012.

There will be billboards in every African American neighborhood with that image with the words, “This is not only what the Republicans want to do to President Obama, but it is also what they want to do to you and America.”

Just, Brilliant.

That image would be relevant if it were paid for by the Democratic Party.

The problem with the Obama bullet in his head picture is that is was paid for by the Republican Party.

It is one thing for an individual to make fun of the president in this manner. It is another for the opposition party to do the same.

And yes, there was little buzz about the same thing for Bush, and the reason is because the MSM is in the Dem's hip pocket. So it does no good to the GOP to throw red meat like this to the MSM. That is why I think it was stupid.

How do we know it was a bullet hole? Bullets do not kill zombies, so maybe it was showing how POWERFUL Hussein is when under attack.

Or, maybe it was showing in figurative manner, that Hussein is too open minded.

Let’s not jump to conclusions, as Hussein said after a Muslim screamed “Allah Akbar” and murdered a dozen soldiers at Fort Hood.

Would you be outraged if the Democratic Party paid for an ad that had a picture of President Bush with a bullet in his head?

Was the Marxist State Media "outraged" when the SNIPERS WANTED graphic of Bush aired on national television?
 
Didn't think so.
 
There is even a feature length movie about killing Bush.

So you’re one of those people that think two wrongs make a right. Wrong. This is bad. Plus, the way we act sets us apart from the Dems. Behavior like this takes that away from us because it makes us no better.

It doesn’t matter that the media ignored the behavior. You know they are going to. We should not act like the Democrats...ever! It is juvenile to say, “But he did!”. So what? We have to be the adults in the room. This was a stupid move that they knew would draw fire. Once again, the GOP shoots itself in the foot.

You can bet your kid’s college fund that the Obama campaign will use that image of Obama with the bullet hole in his head in their own ads.

And, it will be an effective campaign ad.

Of course they’ve done worse. Many of those threats against Bush resulted in a visit from the Secret Service— and rightfully so. That’s not the point. The point is that making threats against the President is illegal, and our side should not be doing it either.

The YouTube "George Bush Get Shot Dead In Front Of Hundreds In Chicago" is the most reprehensible, vilest POS I have ever seen. It is (political) pornography in the most obscene sense of the word. I hadn't been aware of the video until now. I'm not one to ever get queasy, have tolerated the strongest visual stimuli without a problem but this video had made quivering in rage, revulsion, could not stomach, get passed more than a minute of the 2:30 clip.

What I would do to those involved in this abominable excrescence would make Satan cringe.
