Anti-Obama billboard in Texas stirs up controversy
A billboard that's on display in a small Texas town is stirring up controversy across the country.
The display compares the death of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden to removing President Barack Obama from office. Images of the ad have gone viral on the Web and raised concerns the message could be a threat against the president.
The man who paid for the billboard says the display was inspired by an anti-Obama e-mail he received.
"Other than the fact it's got some Seals in there with a gun, I think it's pretty obvious what they did and what the statement is," said billboard sponsor Tom Schad.
Despite complaints from neighbors and people around the country, the sponsor says he has no intention of taking it down.
