Politico Thinks the Wisconsin State Flag is a Union Flag
Politico | 2/15/2012 | Vanity

Posted on 02/15/2012 11:12:40 AM PST by TexasNative2000

The active page has been pulled, but here is a screenshot of an earlier Politico report. The reporter claims that President Obama is showing his support of unions by flying a flag representing Wisconsin Local #1848.

Sorry, lady. That is Wisconsin's State Flag.

Donovan Slack is listed as Politico's "lead writer for '44', a living diary of the Obama presidency."

That was probably how it was written in the press packet sent out from the White House.

When you have 57 states to watch over, it’s hard to keep track of all those flags.

You just KNOW that this ‘reporter’ was so excited to break the story that Obama was supporting the unions.

They speak Austrian and have a navy corpse barracks there.

ARF

and these buffoons still try and tell us he is the smartest man to have ever ran, almost as stupid as them telling us Michelle obama is so classy and graceful and has a great body but ignore her weight, her hypocrisy in telling others to lose weight while she likes to munch on fries, ribs, fry ups etc

Obama got himself one of those cheese head hats for the occasion, but Moochie put it between a couple of white crackers and ate it.

Well, Wisconsin was a Union state in the War of 1861-1865.

Despite protests from The Left, this is NOT a parody or from The Onion.

Here's the website of a local news station which is reporting on the error.

What a great screen capture.

If someone hadn't saved the proof, these lowlife bastards would claim that it was a right wing day dream.

I'm sure that Politico will be up front and put their apology in large type, and send it to Drudge.
