Obama campaign hoodies sale cancelled after controversy By Eric Pfeiffer | The Sideshow 13 mins ago
President Obama recently said that if he had a son, he'd look like murder victim Trayvon Martin. And in what some conservatives see as a direct connection between the national controversy surrounding the child's death, the Obama 2012 re-election campaign announced via Twitter on Monday that it was putting its collegiate hooded sweatshirt on sale.
The sweatshirt was temporarily discounted to $40 from its regular $50 listing. However, the tweet announcing the sale has apparently been removed and following the hooded sweatshirt link at Obama's campaign re-election site store shows the clothing item listed at its regular $50 price.
Obama's critics on the right had a field day with the questionable Twitter posting, with the conservative blog Gateway Pundit calling it "disgusting," and the website Twitchy asking if "Team Obama is capitalizing on Treyvon Martin's death?"

Soon going up on Nachum List.....
or afraid of all those peoples mug shots wearing “Obama 2012”
The child? I heard on the radio this morning that this "child" was 6'3".
All we keep seeing is the kids middle school picture.
Isn’t there something newer on his Twitter or Facebook?
The Congressional Black Caucus will continue to scream and holler, but the more that is known about the case, the less people are likely to rally to Al Sharpton's mob...and Obama's "He looks like my son" crap isn't setting well.
Have you ever noticed when a Democrat is justifiably called out that the corrupt MSM immediately point out that such criticism was solely for "political purposes"? Ever notice how the corrupt MSM always tries to mute and deflect an accounting of a Democrat by chalking it up to raw partisanship?
Now, think hard, have you ever seen the corrupt MSM cast a Democrat's criticism of a Republican as being done for political gain? Me neither.
“Obama:”If I had a son he’d look just like Ron Paul!”
Obama:”If I had a grandpa he’d look just like Ron Paul!”
Another defamation artist.
President Hoodie = Robin Hood
That was my first thought too. Look Obama will never lose the Black vote - never. But I am willing to bet that the more this drags on the more this hurts Obama especially with his “my son” comment.
Great call! What judge and jury determined that this kid was a “murder victim”. How outrageous - yet so typical - of the CORRUPT MSM. And notice how subtle it is, you read it and gloss over it, but it’s there.
The headline is misleading. The hoodies are also still on sale just not “on sale” meaning, discounted. The sale price was changed from $50 to $40. Its now back to $50 and still available.
But that doesn't suit the agenda. And even if "Thug" was omitted, it would be interesting news.
Nothing subtle about it. The media has an agenda, the media is dishonest, and the public is gullible.
Didn’t this guy run a cult called “Heavens’ Gate”?
I know liberal supporters of Obama, people of color, whom I could tell were displeased with the recent revelations...they kind of know their template is being destroyed.
The hoodie is available too, it just isn’t marked down in price, or “on sale.”
I hope all the protesting and looting mobs wear these. Will be great campaign material.
Good marketing ploy
Lower the price.
Let all the publicity get out there.
Then raise it again.
So the race baiting members of the public know where to get a gang banger uniform hoodie sweatshirt with Obama’s name on it.
I wonder if there is any way to find out how long these have been available? Regardless, the “sale priced” hoodie was timed to co-incide with the one month anniversary of Trayvons demise.
