    Anything that besmirches him or his likeness is considered taboo... I can understand with all he's had to endure back at the beginning when they were all up on him with his BC. with his lapel pin, with Larry Sinclair, that he was a muslim, yada yada yada, that crap and it was crap and I did call it crap from the get go should have toughened his skin not turned him and his supporters into a bunch of whining ninnies.

    This BS is an example of his supporters abusing their authority, just like their Precious does...

    It’s hard to decide which is scarier: a grinning “Barack Obama” wearing a straightjacket or the reaction to his appearance at one company’s annual Halloween costume party.

    An employee of Jennie Stuart Medical Center in Hopkinsville, Ky., must have thought he had the costume contest all sewn up when he sauntered into the party wearing an Obama mask and a straightjacket.

    And he probably couldn’t believe his luck when he and his two pals actually won the third-place trophy for their Halloween skit “VIP Security,” according to local TV station WZTV.

    However, soon after their shining moment, a snafu erupted over their Obama schtick.

    “I think it is very, very offensive,” C.E. Timberlake, a local pastor, told the TV station. “And really, that shouldn’t have happened.”

    Company officials weren’t impressed either after a photograph of the costumed trio began circulating around the office.

    Is this the first President in our history that is off limits when it comes to jokes and ridicule?



    If he's off limits why did you post this comment?

    What a crock.

    Whether you or anyone else likes him or not you will have to deal with him until he is replaced by another Democrat.

    This so-called taboo didn't stop you from posting your comment, did it?

    Maybe his boss thought it might not be appropriate for the workplace and it didn't have anything to do with being an Obama supporter. Besides, you guys think business owners are all conservatives anyway, because you've convinced yourselves that liberals don't have jobs.

    There are any number of behaviors my employees display in their personal lives that I don't allow at company functions. I'm sorry your skin is so thin that you can't deal with being asked to behave like an adult when you're at work.

    No, this business owner thought "hey, I better show that we dont condone mocking THIS president". May get in the way of some Obama bucks coming out of Obamacare to the facility.

    I'm honestly amazed by how far people can take something things, a company doesn't like an employee's costume and suddenly freedom of speech is dead, Obamaphiles are protecting their Precious, Thou shalt not mock thy lord and savior Barak Hussein Obama.

    Holy Christ take it down a notch.

    I'm of the mind that there's no reason to potentially pollute a workplace with politics. Stomp it out.

    Why not do it with every President? I think it would be smart to have policies against portraying President Bush in such a manner 8 years ago, just as I think it smart to reject it now.

    Maybe some dissident workers should keep their mouth shut and listen to their bosses?
