Republican Group's Controversial Obama Image Causes a Stir

LEESBURG, VA 11/1/2011 -- A local Republican group in Virginia is stirring up controversy with their latest ad which shows Democratic leaders-- including President Obama-- as zombies.

Adding insult to injury -- the zombie Obama had a bullet hole in its head.
It was sent as an email to Loudoun County Republicans. Many found it offensive: "That's terrible, I mean that's the president of the United States, that's so disrespectful and not even necessary," said Leesburg resident Stephanie DeBerry. "It's already out there...you can't take it back it's still a low blow," added fellow Leesburg resident Jim Roberts.

The group has since apologized for the images.

    It is just a picture people. So what. There have been far worse cartoons, pictures, movies, etc...disrespecting most politicians since the beginning of this country. Why should this guy be held above the rest of the former presidents and politicians? He has distinquished himself by putting more people out of work, creating the largest debt that this country has ever had and divided the country claiming non-partisanship. Way to go BHO a one term president of his own making.

      You call yourself, Anonymous, I will call you coward. Your statement is stupid. You must be a miserable person stuck in your racist, hillbilly, backwoods, shack-living self. You are a hateful person (and I say the word person very lightly).

        Actually, multi-racial, family in pedigreed sources, living in a gated community, IQ over 150 and trying not to laugh at your ignorance. Now deal with the truth and your inability to understand it. LOL Oh, now look what you've done I've lowered my standards and laughed. Thank you.

    Looks like a lot of pent up anger in these posts. Hope none of you go "postal". Perhaps a deep breath, a chat with a therapist, or a little exercise will chill you out a bit.

    Thats what so great about the USA is that you can say what ever you wont. But under Obama and the left wing It all over.

    If you can’t laugh at yourself then this Image will make you upset. Those are the ones that always try to get rid of something because they don’t like it. Who cares about the Image? Its just somebody’s way of expressing their self’s about the Nation. You people need to get a grip.

        And a lousy president is still a lousy president. The current guy in Washington is NOT a leader. He has yet to lead and I don't think he can lead. I wouldn't vote for him the first time nor would I vote for him the second time. I am amazed that this party would even give him a second term. They must realize he is a failure and give another person a chance.

    I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty, and justice for all. It is a Republic Not a Democracy!
