(CNN) – If you are a friend of Don Unsworth, a Georgia businessman who recently passed away, don't send flowers to the family. Just vote against President Obama in 2012.
That was the message conveyed in Unsworth's obituary, according to CNN affiliate station WIS.
"In lieu of flowers the family respectfully asks that donations be sent to the American Cancer Society, or to the campaign of anybody who is running against President Barack Obama in 2012," said the obituary, which ran in the local newspaper.
Donna Barnes said Unsworth was "not really a big Obama fan," taking issue with the stimulus bill and high unemployment rate.
"We just felt like it was the best tribute we could give to him," said Barnes.
A similar plea appeared in the obituary pages of the Las Vegas Review-Journal in July, only the family of Charlotte McCourt asked readers not to vote for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
I hope Don Unsworth doesn't rest in peace. Idiot deal man and obviously idiot family.
HAHAHA- i hope the man's life was not the big joke his death is.
I hope Don Unsworth does not rest in peace. Idiot dead man and idiot family.
if it were only true...we could all be free again .. and obama would be 6 feet under
That is awesome, at least this man had a clear vision.
Just when you think they've sunk as low as they can go, the floor opens up.
This is the kind of hate that is in America now and why we can move becasuse we are to busy blaming the president for problems that were there before he took office. But these are the type also that will throw the rock and break the wndow, then hide their hand behind their back. We all knew this would not be easy but some just don't want to face it now, but this is for real like it or not and what choice do we have? We have to to pull together if we want to get out this and let go of the hate!
Hmmm, yet I bet this Georgia guy kept his mouth shut with the Bush administration's unpaid-for wars, unpaid-for tax cuts, unpaid-for $1.2 trillion Medicare prescription drug plan, his not vetoing so much as a single spending bill his entire first term in office, and, like daddy and Reagan, leaving office with a record deficit.
that gross and crass
Thats one dead voter. who wont be voting democrat in 2012.
If one has to bet, Don Unsworth is an old, bitter & racist GOP white male!
And an '08 election loser!
It's great that Don brought bitterness with him when he croaked! We need more true love and compassion here on earth.
- from someone who voted for Reagan (twice) & I'm not black.
We, lookat the bright side, it will be one less vote against Obama.
This foolishness is getting out of hand and some of these ignorant folk need to be dealt with. It should be against the law for people to disrespect the highest office in the United States like some of these people do. If you don't want to vote for President Obama that is your choice but to stoop as low as adding some stupid mess like this is straight up crazy. And to add it to an obituary is downright disgraceful. Some of you are very sick and evil people.
This is exactly what I expect from southern right wing nut jobs, sick in the head people.
Hmm, me being from the South ,I wonder if skin color had anything to do with those sentiments ? I wonder what the Creator thought about that "cutie"?
The decieced and his family has this all wrong. It was the Repulican's George Bush who autorized the 1st Tarp money and was responsible for the hugh unemployment rate. Obama is just coming in to mop up the mess. It amazes me how people get this so twisted.
I am sure this is the first time anything like this would be sent to a President. Barack Obama is paying the price for being BLACK!!!! OMG!!!
How sad we are as a nation and how low we have slipped. But hats off to Republicans, they knew as voters we would follow a lead, a bad one, but thats never stopped us before or since!! There is no respect for the office and if they think that it will be better once a Repub is elected, guess again – you cannot turn off the hatred you've created. We should be ashamed, but we no longer have the brains to be so.
How ignorant these people are to make a political statement in their relative's obit. Even if this is what the guy wanted, it's obnoxious and just shows what a bigot he was. No loss to society. Sorry, as much as I disliked Bush and the GOP, asking for something like this is just insulting to the deceased. Sort of like that crazy pastor (another one, not the guy in Gainesville, FL) who prays to God every day for Obama's demise. What total losers. Why don't they just come out and say they can't stand the thought of a black man as President. Maybe then they would get more respect for at least being truthful, if nothing else.
I can fully understand and agree with Don. Don must be a person who loved this country so much to worry about the future of America. This country is in the wrong direction. Obama is doing everything he can to destroy this great country!!!
There aren't enough dead old angry white people for Obama not to win by a landslide in 2012.
crazy people...... even the death wishes are sick!
I'm a proud Obama voter and most likely will be again, but I kind of like this. Nothing wrong with a little snark in an obit. At least this guy's family is letting him go out with the courage of his convictions.
This move has also inspired me to try and change my organ donor card to exclude Cheney if he needs any more spare parts.
Hmm...cancer research or Mitt Romney? What to do?
You stay classy, Georgia!
