(Video) State of the Republican Party: Romney voters react to a cardboard cutout of Obama

A cardboard cut-out of Barack Obama goes to a Romney rally in Colorado on Monday, carried by a Romney supporter who starts out by asking if anybody has a “cardboard chair” for the empty candidate. Then the real fun begins. Note the comments by the crowd including one man, and later a woman, who suggest the cardboard Obama be used for “target practice,” and a woman who suggests the thing to do would be to “strangle it.” And lots of suggestions that the cardboard Obama “go back to Kenya.” Nice.

    To be fair I would imagine standing with a Romney cutout in front of an Obama rally might garner some similarly embarrassing comments.

    To be honest, I doubt many would be telling Mitt to “go back to” places he’s not from or to “choke him”. Saying go back to Kenya is racist, and saying let’s strangle him should never be utter when talking about a sitting US President. So, no you’re not being fair because you are comparing apples to oranges.

    I don’t want to use Romney for target practice, or do any violence to him. I don’t wish that on anyone, even someone as vile as Rush or Ann Coulter. I would however, like them to spend a year below the poverty line, or homeless, just to have a taste of the pain so many Americans have had to endure because of the policies they support.

    I’m not surprised. Since this president took office, it has become socially and politically acceptable to say things about him that have never been said about other presidents. This, imo, highlights the fact that racism in America is still alive and thriving in certain places and among some groups in this country. These are the same people who can’t understand why PBO is leading Romney on the issues and in national and swing state polls. They’re so busy engaging in childish, hateful antics, and fevered dreams of violence against PBO, that they are failing to see that they’re part of the reason why Romney is behind, or why he is hoping the debates will change the political landscape for his campaign at this late date.
