PETA bugged by President Obama's fly swatting

President Obama's impressive fly-swatting prowess has left the nation's insect-loving militants both bugged and buzzing.

 

"Swatting a fly on TV indicates that he's not perfect," Bruce Friedrich, vice president for policy at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), told the Daily News Thursday.

 

"President Obama is not the Buddha. He is human like the rest of us," Friedrich said. "But human beings often don't think before we act, and, so people swat flies and far worse."

 

During an interview with CNBC at the White House on Tuesday, a fly buzzed around the nation's commander in chief.

 

"Hey, get out of here," the president playfully ordered the insect. When the fly didn't buzz off, Obama exhibited a talent not previously seen by the American public.` He patiently waited for the fly to settle.

 

He slowly raised his hand. His eyes cast downward, carefully tracking the fly's movement. The look on his face suggested serious, deep concentration. And, then, he smacked the fly dead in a single try.

 

"Nice!" CNBC's John Harwood exclaimed. "Now, where were we?" Obama asked Harwood.

 

When he realized onlookers were slightly awed by the quick kill, Obama said,

 

"That was pretty impressive, wasn't it? I got the sucker."

 

PETA praised the president and First Lady Michelle Obama for their record on animals, such as opposing factory farming and the Canadian seal hunt while in the Senate.

 

But the fly swatting was a definite mistake, albeit a small one, Friedrich argued.

 

PETA is sending Obama a bug catching device, which allows people to capture insects and set them free.

 

"It's not a huge deal. One might even call it a non-story. But if the media wants to talk about fly-swatting, we'll talk about compassion, even for flies."

 

The White House is declining to comment.

 

No word yet on funeral arrangements.

Really? They concentrate on the fly than the actual press interview...damn I hate PETA.

 

 

Like the ACLU and Al Sharpton among selffish media hogs, Peta is not exactly my favorite group of people either:(. Sure someone needs to speak against animal cruelty but Peta goes to extremes.
