President Obama Punching Bag

Greetings from Hoboken sells Obama Punching Bag

Hoboken411 reader Kenny noticed a particular item in the window of the card shop Greetings from Hoboken this past weekend, and took offense.

“The store next to Louise & Jerry’s has an inflatable punching bag of President Obama in the window. Whether you like the President or not, that is beyond offensive.”

Do you find it offensive?

Equal time! Get a bag of Romney and every time a dopey lying ad airs you can punch one or the other! Too bad I only have a one bedroom unit so I can’t fit one of Christie in here (although that one would have so much hot air it would probably bounce and hit me back lmfao).

I’m joking around with this, but actually it is disrespectful to the position, irregardless of who holds the office. Its unfortunate that some people’s racism and hatred gets the better of their thinking. It will be interesting to see how much business the store loses or gains with an item like this. I know some people will stop shopping there.

I’ll note that there is nothing explicitly racist about this punching bag and that projecting your own thought process on the purchasers/manufacturers does not make it so. While I think it’s a waste of money, the disrespect shown to this President is no different than the disrespect shown to other Presidents.[quote comment=”215543″]Equal time!

It always works on the newbies. Hang around another year and you’ll see a different face.
