Whatever or however they try to swing this it is as racist as it gets and that’s the bottom line;

 

NEW YORK - The New York Post is standing behind a cartoon that some have interpreted as comparing President Barack Obama to a violent chimpanzee gunned down by police. The cartoon in Wednesday's Post by Sean Delonas shows two police officers standing over the body of a bullet-riddled chimp. One of the officers says the other, "They'll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill."

 

I saw an interview with the owner of the chimp who had him for 14 years and she seemed so distraught to have to stab him to get him to quit mauling her friend, the friend is in the hospital with massive injuries and the doctors seem to think it will be a long road to recovery. This little dig by the post shows not only insensitivity to our President but to the owner of the chimp as well, they should hang their head in shame,scenes like this are best left to the National Inquirer not so called upstanding news papers.

    Me too, it was just out of poor taste on all concerned i felt really bad after I watched how upset the owner was that she had to stab the chimp, who was eventually killed by police, the newspaper is just so uncaring in my opinion of not only the President but the poor owner of the chimp.
