    Obama parade parody causes controversy

    HUNTSVILLE, Utah — A parade entry portraying President Barack Obama and using the term “Obamanation” has made some angry, and others upset at the negative attention.
    It happened in the city’s annual Fourth of July parade.
    The float showed a person dressed as President Obama with one sign that read “Huntsville Welcomes Obama’s Farewell Tour?” On the back, another sign said, “Ask about our assault gun plan. Call Eric Holder.”
    On one side of the issue, people are saying the float was disrespectful and had no place in a patriotic parade. The other side says it was all in good fun.
    Huntsville Mayor Jim Truett and City Council member Laurie Allen say the entry doesn’t reflect the views of the city. They say it was entered at the last minute, not through usual protocol and they would not have approved it if they had seen it.
    “I don’t think we would have allowed it, in fact I know we wouldn’t,” said Allen. “We just don’t want that. It’s a family-oriented celebration.”
    Weber County Sheriff Chief Deputy Klint Anderson told Fox 13 News his department contacted the Secret Service after some residents expressed concern the float was a threat to the President.
    “We don’t decide what’s appropriate. That’s up to the town, the parade organizers and the people who design the float,” Anderson said.

    I love how everyone would ROAST george bush but if you say or do one bad thing about hussein obama you get front and center news coverage.

    Bush got roasted so many times, he even got his own TV show to mock how stupid he sounded, remember that show 'lil bush' ? Could you imagine a show called 'lil obama' ? There would be a congressional hearing if that happened. Scum liberals, so snakey.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    To an extent I'd agree but in this incident it's completely and totally unnecessary to involve the secret service. It's like a bumper sticker that's making fun of politicians, see them everywhere, should I call the FBI each time one of those offends me? There was nothing harmful about anything displayed in that float and not even insulting.

    Anti-Bush protesters win round in appeals court
    http://www.politico.com/blogs/under-...rt-120271.html
    (The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled Monday that the protesters' lawsuit against two Sercet Service agents could go forward. The suit alleges that the agents violated the anti-Bush protesters' First Amendment rights by making them move to a location further from the restaurant than pro-Bush protesters were.)

    The ask about our Assult Rifle Plan can be taken any variety of ways. If you read the article it states the Secret Service was contatced by local residents. So blame the locals, they get a call they investigate that's the job. There are so many threats to a President on a daily basis that requires investigation. God forbid they dont and that threat turns real then they get hammered for not doing their job. Investigations can be short & sweet as this likely was...

    Things like what LM posted in posts 8, 9 & 10 would not be tolerated with Obama ... they would declare them racist and there would be hell to pay.

    post #8, #9 and #10 basically summarizes how two faced and wretched liberals are. They arent so peaceful.
