Posted on 09/23/2012 5:18:31 PM PDT by lasereye
The Obama campaign produced a poster of an American flag, with Obamas O symbol replacing the field of stars, as an item of campaign merchandise, selling for $35. The image was tasteless at best. It is hard to imagine any other politician arrogant enough to remake the flag in his own image:
Barack Obama, however, has never been one to be deterred by bad taste. The larger problem was that, as many pointed out, the flag bore an uncanny resemblance to this grisly photograph taken at the American consulate in Benghazi:
So the Obama campaign has quietly ditched the flag poster, which now returns an error message if you try to buy it at the Obama store.
I cant think of an analogy to this fiasco: the Obama campaigns initial insensitivity to proper uses of the flag was bad enough, and then it was compounded by bringing to mind one of the administrations foreign policy disasters. One can only imagine the hysteria if a similar mishap had befallen George Bushs re-election campaign. And yet, our reporters assure us that it is Mitt Romney who has had a bad couple of weeks!
JOE updates: The Obama website returns this page not found message when you try to buy the flag:
Yeah: your bad.
Or equally true - You're bad.
Too late ..... Americans died and we won't forget Obama was derelict in his duty to these folks and to the country. We also won't forget the partying that went on in the days after (Las Vegas, Letterman, Beyonce/JayZ) with al-Qaeda flags flying over American embassies and the slain not yet laid to rest.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Yippee! One for the good guys.

As I said previously; the first thing I noticed about this abberation and desecration of our national symbol was the absence of the stars representing our sovereign 50 (57?) states. Of course that couldn’t have been the intention of the POS-in-Chief’s administration........./sarc.
This man’s ego has no limits! What other political figure had his image on bumper stickers, yard signs, posters and tee-shirts? oh...I mean in America?
That’s a perfect image of what he has done.
It's been apparent for years that he has no respect for the flag. This latest fiasco just emphasizes that.
hahhaha...looks like smeared blood to me
Gone as fast as the Obama hoody.
