Every year, Glenn and Melissa Cruson of Colleyville, Texas, put on an elaborate Halloween display. But this year’s spectacle has some people upset.
The Crusons’ yard features a spider web — a web in which President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are caught. The Biden figurine is dressed as a clown and Obama has a big, red nose. Some neighbors have thought that Obama appears to be hanging.
“It has nothing to do with the office, the person that’s in the office of the president; nothing to do with the color, anything like that,” said Melissa Cruson. “It’s just the whole arena is just out of control. It’s the web. It had nothing to do with the tree at all.”
The display is full of Romney-Ryan signs and numbers dealing with the economy.
Despite criticism, the Crusons have no intention of taking down their display.
“I just think it’s important to show it’s our right, to free speech,” she said. “I don’t want that squashed and I’m afraid it’s being squashed by both sides.”
