This is a huge insult to the real heroes! Ironic for a guy who wants to take away our guns.

Navy SEALs have become national heroes since news broke that they took down Osama bin Laden, so it’s fitting that the newest action figure from a Connecticut company is a fierce-looking President Barack Obama as a SEAL.

The minute Obama said late on the night of May 1 that the U.S. had found and killed bin Laden, Emil Vicale knew which his action figure company’s would make next — Rambama.

On Wednesday morning, Hero Builders released the Obama SEAL Team 6 action figure — a muscular President in fatigues armed with an M1-A4.

Vicale, who owns the custom action figure company in Oxford, said the speech was a pivotal moment in the Obama presidency.

It was also a parallel to the speech that inspired the company in the first place almost 10 years earlier.

On Sept. 14, 2001, Vicale listened to then-President George Bush’s bullhorn speech from Ground Zero and was inspired to create Hero Builders.

As Bush stood there, with an arm around the shoulder of a New York City firefighter, Vicale saw what he thought was the first moment that Bush fit into his shoes as president.

“I can hear you. The rest of the world hears you and the people who knocked these building down will hear all of soon,” Bush said as New Yorkers chanted “U.S.A.”

Almost 10 years later, Obama spoke the words that would make Vitale feel the same way: “Tonight, I can report to the American people, and to the world, that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of al Qaeda.”

With that statement, another Hero Builders action figure is born.

Rambama? :unsure:

For me, this doesn't seem right, to make an Obama figure after Seal Team Six. And it's not because it's Obama, I'd feel this way if he had fashioned a George Bush figure after them. I commend the President for the decision he made to send the team in, but the real heroes are the team. Make a figure of him like he is...as President.

I personally think anyone that steps up and joins the military is a hero... those that step up for some of the toughest training.. hardest stuff possible to do.. and rarely get any recognition.. unsung heroes...

Obama don't deserve to be counted among the SEALs

Ain't no politician should be portrayed as a SEAL unless they actually have been one!

If this comes with voters to intimidate it would be better.

This. Whoever is making this toy needs to take a step back and smell a little reality imo. They just trying to cash in on this situation and I find it kindof lame and distastful.. I guess the next 'series' of figures will be the 'Seal Team',followed by 'Compound playset' w/ Pajama 'Bin Ladin' and wife. :Whistle:
