hey guys,

saw this the other day and just wondered what everyone's thoughts were on it. i know this will probably end up just being another party line debate but who knows, maybe we can do better. I for one find the flag disrespectful of the country. The person on the flag isn't the issue for me. If a republican center did this with bush or any other republican my feelings would be the same. So, what are your thoughts?

Completely agree. No person's face should be on the flag, no matter party preference.

"It leads me to believe that it's not about the flag," she told FoxNews.com. "Certain elements cannot accept Barack Obama as president."

I'm assuming she was referencing racist people/groups who do not approve of Obama being President.

That's pretty ridiculous of them. The flag is a representative of the country never one person, no matter who that person is.

I can't imagine ANYONE would think this is not disrespectful, but when you think about it; respect for the office and country in general has been deteriorating for decades now.

I don't have a problem with the particular flag but I don't really see a purpose for it either.

It's pretty funny too because I can't think of one politician that represents what that flag is supposed to stand for.

I think there are a couple, but not too many.

I'd expect that the reaction would be negative towards any image of a president placed in the U.S. flag like that. The U.S. flag is way too symbolic to be use as a campaign marketing tool. I assume that was the intent, but I consider that poorly executed.

and let's not get this wrong. It's not like the Obama administration commissioned that as a marketing piece. People make crappy design all the time and this seems to be exactly that. Some guy with a bad idea.

no one is accusing obama, but this is not some random idiot selling these online. this was the official democratic office of a county flying this flag. no, i don't think obama had anything to do with this,

agree completely. still a bad idea that was poorly executed by an official at a county democratic HQ.
