You don't have to wait for election day to clobber the opposition.

Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.

Between President Barack Obama’s defined jawline and Mitt Romney’s dead-eyed stare, all these two Harvard men were missing in their last debate were some gloves, high-waisted glossy shorts, and a boxing ring.

Unfortunately, the American people didn’t get to see a slugfest on Oct. 22 but thanks to video game producer Next Mobile, the battle royale has become a reality.

The new game “Obama vs Romney Boxing Faceoff” features the mindless fun of Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! and fighting mechanics of EA’s Fight Night. You can chose to fight as either Obama or Romney, each of which mutter their own funny phrases when landing a solid punch.

Obama, for example, says things like “The 47 percent say hi” and “Romnesia” whenever landing an uppercut while a 3D crowd cheers.

Jimmy Kimmel got President Obama to read mean tweets about himself
You’d think being the Commander in Chief would prevent Pres. Obama from seeing the appalling things people write about him on Twitter. He has people to run that for him, plus Congress and Fox News do enough Obama-hating on TV. But even the president sometimes get a bit sad to R.E.M. like our normal celebrities, musicians, and sports stars.
