A New Jersey business owner's window display which depicts President Barack Obama as a witch doctor is generating both support and outrage.      

The display in a window of Skuby & Co. Lifestyle Clothing in Spring Lake includes an image of the president's head superimposed on the body of a witch doctor above the word "ObamaCare.''      

There's a tombstone featuring a picture of the president with a stethoscope and the inscription, "I Told You I Was Sick.'' A mannequin also wears a hat with a derogatory Obama acronym.      

Store owner Bill Skuby tells the Asbury Park Press the display is personal, not political. Skuby says he deals with "a 1 percent customer.'' He says business has been thriving.      

However, Nancy Pugliese says it's disrespectful and portrays the town as racist.
