    I know we've had discussions about it being just a flag, but no ones face should be on it. At least they flew the actual flag higher.

    This will inevitably turn into a "well 'your side' did this" back and forth discussion but carry on.


    If I missed this in a search then I missed it..

    A pointless thing to get pissed off about, not surprised. Such a non-story too but I'm sure conservatives will be bitching about this nonsense.

    Why do journalists write like that? They also have the hack Journalist Voice, too. Once O&A and Louis CK had a few bits trashing the Newscaster Voice I can't watch the news.

    Blame the editor. Because they are the ones that do the editing.

    The Democratic Party has turned into a personality cult. You're right, it's nothing to worry about.

    I have more a problem with the shitty American flag apparel that rednecks love to adorn themselves in. ;)

    Speaking of Sarah. I guess wrapping yourself in an American flag and defacing one by signing it is okie-dokie...

    I find Sarah Palin to be equally offensive as the current president.

    naaaaah, no one here would do that........



    oh wait
    Personally, I find all of that crap repugnant as well. The rednecks are just stupid, politicians should fucking know better.


    Say that to a guy that risked his life defending this country.


    While it's not a stretch to say that most vets are conservative, from reading the article, you can't assume that the veterans were doing this to advance some conservative agenda. I wouldn't fault the president on this one because it's impossible to know the actions of every single person working on the campaign, but the person in charge of the office should have known better.

    My point was also that I hate when both sides do it. I like flag apparel when it's a print of a flag on a shirt, a patch on a jacket or hat, or something along those lines, but when it looks like one was cut up to make it I think it looks in poor taste. The Obama pic in the blue part of the flag seems more "artsy" than anything else.

    Was looking for actual campaign flag stuff and found this from years ago:

    yeah, I have a few jackets with an american flag patch sewn on it. No issues there.

    The part about this one that gets me is that it was not only flying outside, it's on the same flagpole as the real flag. If this were hanging inside the office on a wall, I wouldn't have as much of an issue with it.
    that looks like a button. Kinda goes along with what I said about the barry flag. Neither are in the best taste, but if it's not being flown on a pole for all to see then it's not as big of an issue to me.


    Overall, I am glad they took it down, but I also think it's a bit cunty to be working for the president's campaign and then fall back on the "private property" argument.

    I'm not really outraged over this, although I don't like it and got douche chills when I looked at it. The flag is obviously bigger than any single president, thus altering it to put one's face on it is a pretty shitty thing to do.

    I also think it was pretty stupid of the Democratic party to do... it was inevitably going to cause some controversy and it just makes Obama look almost fascist (kind of like how dictators always put their own pictures up in every public place available in their countries). The first thing I thought of when I saw the picture was Kim Jong-il, probably not the best thing for Obama.

    I'm not. They'll defend and deflect everything him and his agents in the democrat party will do.

    Who you calling redneck?!?!?

    I want to say there was a wrestler back in the day that always came out draped in the flag. Not hacksaw jim duggan, he carried it on a pole, but someone else. I forget


    I know its hard, for some, not to jump on the my side vs. that other side thing but its WB, it could have went another way that I've seen....

    They're trying to justify a stupid position they took based solely on emotion. If they lose faith in Obama, it means that their cause they were so heavily invested in was a complete waste and a mistake.

    Funny how the Democrats have openly supported the Occupy Trustafarians and their anti-Private Property actions and rhetoric, yet when called out on putting the face of their "Dear Leader," on the American flag and flying it, they cry Private Property.
