I barely know what to say about this:
Holy shit. Are you KIDDING me with this? Check out the "rationale" from the maker of this "Hero" figure:
Navy SEALs have become national heroes since news broke that they took down Osama bin Laden, so it’s fitting that the newest action figure from a Connecticut company is a fierce-looking President Barack Obama as a SEAL.
The minute Obama said late on the night of May 1 that the U.S. had found and killed bin Laden, Emil Vicale knew which his action figure company’s would make next — Rambama.
On Wednesday morning, Hero Builders released the Obama SEAL Team 6 action figure — a muscular President in fatigues armed with an M1-A4.
Vicale, who owns the custom action figure company in Oxford, said the speech was a pivotal moment in the Obama presidency.
It was also a parallel to the speech that inspired the company in the first place almost 10 years earlier.
On Sept. 14, 2001, Vicale listened to then-President George Bush’s bullhorn speech from Ground Zero and was inspired to create Hero Builders. [snip] (Click here to read the rest.)
Never mind that Obama did not GIVE the order to take out bin Laden, and had to be yanked off the golf course by the adults in the White House, HE did nothing to get bin Laden. HE did not risk his life. HE likely doesn't even know how to OPERATE a gun, which I think I can say without fear of contradiction given this:
Yeah, doesn't sound to me like someone who would have an M-1 in his arms, does it to you? Much less someone I think it is safe to label a "milquetoast," as someone did in the comments.
Okay - I am too busy being disgusted to write more. What is your reaction?
