    This is why we are blessed to have a first amendment. Just because people are free to say a lot of things, that does not mean they are free from criticism for saying them.

    That applies to this clown, as well as the lame bleats whining about it and calling for officials investigations.

    tempest in a teapot.

    Okay I read it again to see if I missed something. He moved his lips in the mask and the bull was charging "Obama".

    I'm sorry this is still over-sensitivity and DOESN'T RISE TO SOMETHING THE DOJ & THE SECRET SERVICE should get involved in.

    So does this mean that next time a rodeo clown puts on a Mexican hat/outfit all Hispanics can scream racism and ask the DOJ to investigate because it's racist? How many times have people worn Nixon masks, Clinton masks, Bush masks, etc, and done things in complete poor taste, etc? Tons.

    Again, overreaction.

    its about the announcer asking if they wanted to see the clown in the mask chased by a bull, the horror and outrage are certainly warranted.

    Again, read that, and again, don't see why the Department of Justice and the Secret Service need to be involved in it. It's the LEVEL that it's reaching that I have a problem with.

    Lets just be honest here, black mask racism, white mask funny. We live in a racial charged environment brought about by BO and his government. This is SA at its best. Divide and conquer. When we're fighting each other this government sinks us deeper in the toilet. Nice how people cherry pick what is racist and what isn't.

    Strange free speach allows for people to burn the flag and stomp on it without hardly a word, but a BO mask is not racist. Not that BO is a poor excuse for a president.

    The NAACP thinks that the current DOJ is their personal GESTAPO. Just rattle Holders cage and he will come a runnin' fangs bared. Holder hasn't done anything to dispel that impression.

    The guy who said it reminded him of being to a Klan rally doubtless never ATTENDED a Klan rally. I wonder how he felt about the idiots from International A.N.S.W.E.R, when they hung President Bush in efficy and worse very uncomplimentary masks of HIM? They aren't hard to find; go to any Occupy Wall Street rally and there you will find them...

    So amazingly thin-skinned. This is, of course, by design, to preclude any crticism from sticking...

    there were books and movies about the assassination of george w. bush.

    i know, like everything else, this will turn into a conservative vs. liberal issue.

    however, i like to hope that people of all sides can see an increasing desire and practice of government to control speech and thought.

    as long as we point fingers at one another depending on who's in power, we all will be screwed.

    this kind of censorship is, in my opinion, actually dangerous.

    where the DOJ has acted as the NAACP's personal gestapo? I'd like to see those several incidents.

    I'm just glad that people looking like Ronnie Raygun and Lil' Richie Nixon aren't robbing banks anymore.

    It was in poor taste, but what exactly is "sensitivity training"? That itself sounds more like something out of "Clockwork Orange".

    You are confused. It's the IRS. Obama is the American Putin.

    BTW, laugh at yourself. Defending the idea of a DOJ investigation is comical.

    one other thing here....

    if the same thing happened with a clinton mask or a bush mask, would there have been any problem.

    what does it say about our fearless leader that a freakin rodeo clown in missouri must be made an example of?
