Swats at Obama

for Killing That Fly!

6/17/2009 12:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

PETA is finally going after President Barack Obama for delivering capital punishment to a housefly on the White House grounds yesterday -- a death that was caught on tape.

When asked for comment, here's the statement PETA released: 

"He isn't the Buddha, he's a human being and human beings have a long way to go before they think before they act."

We're told the fly's carcass has been moved to a secret location ... we're guessing the bottom of a White House trash can.

Seriously PETA? You guys need to take a rest. You are completely nuts. Of all the things going on in this world, you are concerned about a fly. I hope one of you PETA crazies is attacked by a swarm of flies...then we'll see what happens!!

I don't care much for Obama, but this is just idiotic. PETA has to be the biggest bunch of idiots in the world. They really need to get real jobs and grow up!!!!!

There are plenty of things to complain about President Obama. Killing disease-carrying vermin isn't one of them...

My homepage had the video of Obama swatting the fly-I thought then and still do: Is THIS what it's come to? We are now watching the President swat flies and it's an actual story? We as American people need to GET A LIFE!!!! And we're (me included) actually COMMENTING on it. OMG-I'm turning my computer off right this minute and going to try and find something productive to do.

scott is yummy.    

PETA is trying to get on everyone's good side by putting out a joke reply

it doesn't take away from the fact that they have the most horrid reputation on earth as a bunch of psycho a$$holes and animal killers.

Peta is stupid and so are there LAME jokes.

I thought going on vacations, late night comedy shows, ESPN, broadway shows and sporting events were bad enough methods for Obama to avoid work, but now he's running around outside killing flies? The country is falling apart, thousands of people are losing their jobs by the month thanks to Obama's policies, every terrorist nation in the world now feels empowered to have nukes since they know Obama is a bitch and won't lift a finger, and what is he doing? Killing flies. WORST ADMINISTRATION....EVER!!!!

OMG!!! get a life PETA. saving animals and pets are one thing, but making a big deal about someone killing a fly (that caries deseases) is going too far. what? there aren't enough furry animals to save? because he's the president, you have to make a big deal about it? whoever desided to make a big deal about this, needs to have a flyswater taken to them. get over yourselves! you aren't above killing a fly and neither is the president or the american public. it's going to die in 24 hours anyway, might as well make it sooner for the INSECT! it's an f***ing bug!!!

The state run media is acting like Obama killed Bin Laden. How desperate they are for any positive coverage for this moron.
