Obama Punching Bag Causes Controversy

Obama Punching Bag Causes Controversy
OVERSUPPLYWAREHOUSE.COM
The Obama punching bag was part of a Republican display at an Indiana fair.

Some Indiana Republicans are taking a hit after displaying at a fair a punching bag featuring President Barack Obama. It was removed after some fairgoers objected to the display.

Even some Republicans complained, believing that the punching bag is disrespectful to the commander in chief.

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

Bennington called it “mildly offensive.”

“We had a lot of people having a good time with it,” he added. “We had a couple who didn’t like it.”

The inflatable bag can be purchased here.

Earlier this year, a town in Utah was criticized when a man appeared in a Fourth of July parade in an Obama costume. He was accompanied by a limo with the sign “Huntsville Welcomes Obama’s Farewell Tour?”

The back of the limo had a sign reading: “Ask About Our Assault Gun Plan! Call Eric Holder.”
