Business owner depicts Obama as witch doctor

Obamacare Witch Doctor

SPRING LAKE, N.J. (WABC) -- A business owner in Spring Lake, New Jersey has put up a window display for Halloween which depicts President Barack Obama as a witch doctor.

The display in a window of Skuby & Co. Lifestyle Clothing in Spring Lake includes an image of the president's head superimposed on the body of a witch doctor above the word "ObamaCare."

There's a tombstone featuring a picture of the president with a stethoscope and the inscription, "I Told You I Was Sick." A mannequin also wears a hat with a derogatory Obama acronym.

The display is generating support and outrage.

"Our children and grandchildren can walk by and I think this represents the worst that America can display in campaigning," Suzanne Herrmann said

. "Good for him. Someone has to stand up for our country," Ray Miller said.

I asked people on Facebook what they thought. Gloria Almodovar wrote, "I am so for freedom of speech, but have some respect he is still President of the United States." And Sarah Coffey added, "It seems like this person got exactly what they wanted through this display: attention."

"I don't think there's such a thing as bad publicity," Skuby said.

Skuby has been fielding calls from all over the country today -- both for and against his display. He says he's an independent, but believes that Obama has been bad for small business owners.

"He says small businesses are doing well. No we are not, we're not! I haven't had a line of credit in 3.5 years," Skuby said.
