An amusement company in Pennsylvania yanked a carnival game where competitors shot foam darts at a likeness of President Obama.

A patron attending a fair in Roseto, north of Philadelphia complained. 

The game featured a large image of a black man wearing a belt buckle with the presidential seal and holding a scroll labled "Health Bill."

The owner of the company says the game was a "big mistake in judgement" because he voted for Obama and the game wasn't meant to encourage violence against him.
