Florida Democrats Fly US Flag With Obama's Face Replacing the Stars

Campaign office or personality cult (from Todd Starnes)?
A Florida Democratic Party outpost has taken down an American flag depicting an image of President Obama after a group of veterans complained that the flag had been desecrated.

The flag was flying underneath an American flag outside the Lake County Democratic Party headquarters. Instead of stars, the blue field featured an image of President Obama’s face.

That infuriated local veterans like Jim Bradford, the office manager at the Veterans Memorial at Fountain Park in nearby Leesburg.

“I couldn’t believe that anybody in their right mind would desecrate the American flag that way,” he told Fox News. “It was disrespectful.”

“It’s a cult of personality to show his face, like Stalin or Mao,” said former Marine John Masterjohn in an interview with the Orlando Sentinel. “It’s despicable. They don’t realize how sick they are.”

Nancy Hurlbert, the chairwoman of the local Democratic Party, removed the flag after a group of veterans staged a protest outside her office.

“We’re proud of our president and we didn’t realize it was in violation,” she told the Orlando Sentinel. “I am the chair and I will take responsibility for this.”
There's something deeply Freudian about all this. There's no question that Obama hates the idea of the 10th Amendment and state sovereignty, so replacing the stars which represent the states with his face certainly fits his political philosophy.

They should've set up a teleprompter in front of the flag to see if anything would happen.

“It’s despicable. They don’t realize how sick they are.” While I think it was a stupid thing to do, I wouldn't go so far as to say the person responsible was "sick." No more sick than President Bush was when he desecrated the American Flag by writing on it when Section 8 Part G of the United States Flag Code clearly prohibits such. Just sayin'
