Heartache: Obama ‘Disappoint-Mints’ Removed From Shelves After Democrat Complains

Anything anti-Obama is strictly forbidden.

(Daily Mail) — A University bookstore was forced to pull boxes of mints from its shelves after a state legislator complained that it satirized President Obama.

The red and blue box of mints — which were on sale for $2.99 at the University of Tennessee — bear a picture of the President with the words ‘This is change? Disappoint-Mints’ underneath.

Officials were forced to pull the product after Democratic state Rep Joe Armstrong visited the bookstore and told the manager he found the mints offensive.

Mr Armstrong told The Knoxville News Sentinel that UT uses federal and state funds and should be sensitive to what he called ‘politically specific products’.

Local politician Joe Armstrong was not happy that a publicly-funded university was selling the mints
