ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) -- The head of an eastern Pennsylvania amusement company has yanked a carnival game in which players shot foam darts at an image resembling President Barack Obama.

Irvin Good Jr. pulled the target-shooting game after receiving a complaint from a Massachusetts woman attending a fair in Roseto, about 65 miles north of Philadelphia.

News from The Associated Press (http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_CARNIVAL_GAME_OBAMA?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLA TE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2010-08-04-15-39-34 - broken link)

I had a GW Bush dartboard for years. The beady eyes finally shredded....and the smirk turned into a gaping hole.

Expect this sort of thing to be more commonplace as more and more taxpayers are negatively impacted by Obama's policies.

Yeah that is going a bit far... if people hate a president, they can't express it? Where are we living? In China?

I don't care that they had the dart board but I'm so tired of people pretending not to know something was offensive. Oh we didn't mean for people to think it was Obama...it's just a black guy holding the health bill and the presidential seal on his belt buckle...if you're going to be scared then why do it?
