Democrats' Obama Flag Offends Veterans

Democrats' Obama Flag Offends Veterans

The Lake County Democratic Party in Florida put up a version of Old Glory featuring President Obama’s face in place of the stars this week. Veterans quickly protested the flag, which they called “disrespectful” and “ridiculous.” As FoxNews.com reports:

[Jim] Bradford, an organizer with the Veterans Memorial at Fountain Park in Leesburg, Fla., snapped photos of the flag and distributed them to fellow veterans and friends. By late afternoon, he and several other veterans delivered a copy of the federal flag code to Nancy Hurlbert, chairwoman of the Lake County Democratic Party.

“We read that to her, but she would not accept that,” Bradford said. “The discussion finally got a little bit heated.”

The flag, which had been flying for several months without complaint and is available online for $12.95, was later removed by Hurlbert.

Hulbert was clearly upset about having to remove the flag – she said “it’s not about the flag … Certain elements cannot accept Barack Obama as president.” She added that the flag might go back up.

But the question is why the flag was up in the first place. And the answer is that a bizarre cult of personality has been built around this president, far more than presidents of years past. No Republican would have flown a flag with George W. Bush on it, or even Reagan; no Democrat would have flown a flag with Bill Clinton or Jimmy Carter on it. Some of Barack Obama’s supporters seem to believe that he is the country, or at least the embodiment of it. And that is deeply troubling.
