Obama Figure Removed From Seaside Heights Boardwalk Game

SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. (AP) — Operators of a Jersey Shore boardwalk game have removed a mannequin representing President Barack Obama.

It has been replaced by effigies of former President George W. Bush and Hillary Clinton.

Manager Tom Whalen says it’s to show the “Walkin Charlie” game isn’t “anti-Democrat or “anti-Republican.”

The game requires patrons to throw baseballs at plates held by the rotating caricatures.

A plastic bag was placed over the Obama character’s head after some people earlier this week said it was disrespectful to use the president’s likeness.

Whalen says a Secret Service agent visited the Seaside Heights concession on Wednesday and told him none of his employees had urged patrons to throw at or hurt Obama.

Whalen says the Obama figure might return in a few weeks.

    OBAMA goes about his business by speaking the lie. II Thessalonians 2 says that he comes “with all deceivableness of unrighteousness.” Revelation 13:12 says, “and he spoke as a dragon….” Revelation 17 tells us that he was a false prophet, a prophet being one whose calling it is to speak and to teach. The armies of the world may have guns and tanks and bombs to bring people into submission; but the power of speech and ideas is a mighty power. In his initial attempts to destroy the cause of God, OBAMA used a serpent to deceive the woman with crooked speech: “You will be like God.” Now he uses a “dragon” who speaks crafty, lying words. His speeches will be heard by millions who will hang on his persuasive rhetoric. The content as well as the form of his speech will attract. Like most false prophets, he will even be sincere and passionate. But he is a liar. He adds dashes of truth to the mix, so that his lie tastes like truth. He will use all the right catchwords, using the language of the church, even throwing in a Bible text or two. But he is the ultimate Liar, and will deceive many.
    OBAMA will use every tool available: school teachers, politicians, news broadcasters, artists, musicians, scientists and doctors, lawyers and businessmen. All will be pressed into the service of OBAMA to deceive men. But especially he will use those whose calling it is to persuade and to teach — men who claim to be preachers of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

      Nanny state? Did the government force him to change it? Uh, no. It was public opinion. That’s a sign that as a society we still have some respect for the presidency, and its about the office, not the man.

    if you really need someone to point out the glaringly obvious, you must have been living in a different country for the last 2 years.
