Why that’s terrible!
Next we’ll find out that some candidate flies the German planes in the IL2 1946 flight sim game!

Think there are any Confederate Uniforms when they do Civil War reenactments? Bet there are even Confederate Flags.

Let's see that picture of Obama in his dress again...

Yep, the leftwing media establishment is going to play this for all that it’s not worth. In his non-Nazi uniform pics, the guy looks like a good, decent family man. Hope he insists on coming on live on the leftwing shows (other than MSNBC) and let’s people see how overblown this is.

So, now acting (or re-enacting) = embracing the views of the part you’re playing?

Guess we’d better round up Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci for their obvious mob ties, then. And arrest that guy who plays Dexter before he kills a bunch of people!

Liberals are so silly. Especially when they’re desperate.

Big difference—the Confederacy never committed genocide against anyone. Extremely poor judgement, if not outright stupidity, on his part. Anyone who puts on a Nazi uniform for ANY reason need to think hard about the impact on their political aspirations. Even an actor in a movie has got to think it will come back to haunt them.

Rick Larsen, a Democrat Congressman from WA state used a doctored photo from a civil war reenactment and superimposed his opponents picture in front of a crowd who were waving confederate flags.

Yeah because we are so dumb that we cant read that he was participating in a WW2 reenactment?

I hope you dont try to lecture any leftist on political correctness.

According to Larry Sabato, this controversy is sinking Iott. I hope this is just wishful thinking on his part.

Dumb? As in dumber than a politician who puts on a Nazi uniform knowing they can get photographed? So that it can wind up in an ad somewhere—either in or out of context. No that’s not dumb at all. That just freaking brilliant. Because no one will ever question the motivations of someone wearing a Nazi uniform—especially of the SS variety. [/s]

Dude, it has nothing to do with PC. It has everything to do with judgement.

Robert DeNiro and Michael Hall (the Dexter guy) are not running for office. They’re actors so they can do anything they want. Even Tom Cruise (who played a “good” German officer) has to know that if he ever ran for office, those pictures would come back to haunt him.

Yea it does.

When you participate in historical reenactments, you dont think that some group of thinned-skinned morons would make the leap to think that you ACTUALLY ARE THE ROLE YOU ARE PLAYING!

Would it had made people feel better if he was in a American Revolution reenactment in a British Uniform?

If you run around afraid of a camera, then you already lost.

Of course, it was perfectly fine for Harry Byrd to wear his KKK robes for real.

Not at all. I think this locks in the Nazi vote for him.

If you’re in certain professions, you’d better be very careful around a camera. Politician is definitely on of them. A camera can be your best friend or your worst enemy. Every smart politician knows this and acts accordingly.

Like it or not, we live in a country that has PC attitudes and perception is often more important than reality. Is it fair? Not always. Does it suck? Yeah. But it is what it is. Smart people deal with it; dumb ones get burned.

The Nazis may not have won the ground war, but they sure won the fashion war.

Somebody said once that the Nazis had the second greatest uniforms in history. First place goes to the Catholic church.

John Kerry commited naked treason lying to Congress during the Vietnam war about phony war crimes he witnessed/participated in (he now calls those the words of himself as an angry young man and does not stand by them).

There are plenty of PRO-COMMUNIST scum who are given a "pass" on their radical politics. Historical re-enactment is NOT about "reliving history to change the outcome".

It's not even a Halloween costume.

I agree. Conservatives are held to a very high standard and liberals get a pass. Like I said, it ain’t fair, but it is what it is.

Ha! Sabato also said he only expects the Repubs to take 44-47 house seats. That’s less than 1994! He’s really had a hard time hiding his stripes this election season.
