Obama Halloween display causes stir in western Colorado
Source: Aspen Times

MACK, Colo. A skeleton pirate holding a gun to an effigy of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, who appeared to have just walked off the plank of a pirate ship, caused a stir in far western Colorado.

The scene was a Halloween display outside the home of Jim and Cheryl Barnes, 955 U.S. Highway 6 & 50.

Obama was constructed from a white plastic skeleton, painted dark brown, with large ears and eyes and black hair glued in place. He wore suit pants, a white shirt and a tie.
On the ship was a sign, Obama for president of Afghanistan.

After the Grand Junction Free Press asked the Barneses about the display Thursday afternoon, they discussed the decorations, which were only feet from the highway. And then they removed the Obama effigy and sign.

...

Do they think Obamas Muslim?

I dont know ... Id just as soon keep that to ourselves, Cheryl Barnes said.

As to the color of Obamas skin, I dont care what race he is. His race makes no difference, Cheryl Barnes said. I dont like his policies, the things hes voted for.

4. $50 says they can't name one thing Obama voted for or against

They're typical Repugs, ignorant.

19. Oh, yes they can: "Saving the life of babies alive after late-term abortion or miscarriage"
They can ALL parrot that distortion. It doesn't matter in the least that the bill was redundant and full of garbage and he voted "present" on it.

Didn't you get the memo? Obama voted to let BABIES DIE!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!

Sorry.

Just didn't wantcha to lose yer cash. They can all name that one, even if its horse puckey.

nitpickily,
Bright

They would claim he voted against it when he voted present.

6. I really hope people like this aren't expecting a "Halloween exemption" when it
comes to explicit or implied threats against a presidential/V.P. candidate! The SS needs to get on this shit pronto...

7. When asked if she thought Obama was Muslim...
she responded, "Id just as soon keep that to ourselves." Apparently that's the only opinion she wants to keep to herself ... the one that she knows in her heart is a lie she'd be caught in if she actually gave voice to it.

At least they took it down. I guess that's something. But geeez. How awful.

20. They'll just say that the moolah finally "trickled down" to them
from St Ronnie. I'll guarantee they'll never admit they were wrong.

17. Could have saved considerable time and expense
and just wrote "Moran" on the sheet and hung it up. Same message as far as I am concerned.
