    I see nothing wrong with Obama Fried Chicken. President Obama should be flattered. Are we going to ban the use of all president names? People need to get a life and leave the Obama Fried Chicken owner alone.

    This is a very convoluted poll, P.C.
    I think if I were black, it would be acceptable. If I were white, I would be considered a racist.
    Having said that...there's more. If I was a black democrat, it would be acceptable, but if I were a black republican, I would be a racist. We are talking "fried Chicken"...right? That's pretty controversial in this day and age.
    When I die, am I going to hell for this??? :eusa_eh:

    I didn't mean it to be convoluted. I think it's a good business move. There are always people out there ready and willing to be offended. What if they put Jerry Seinfeld's name on a brand of kosher hotdogs. Would that be racist? Frankly, President Obama should be flattered. Some business owner thought he could cash out on Obama's popularity. Hey I'd be flattered if they wanted to put my label on something.

    No Meister you won't go to hell. G_d isn't racist. :)

    I can see it now, they undercook the chicken, their partrons get salmonella poisoning. They blame it on the Bush administation, then ACORN organizes a bus trip to Bush's ranch to protest ....

    i'm completely distracted by the fact that the sign says "nugget's" instead of "nuggets"

    other than that, i have no problem with it.

    I'm sure Obama would be flattered. :lol:

    Is nothing sacred? He's the freaking president of the most powerful nation in the world for God's sake.
