Did you know we needed a new flag? I liked the one we have always had the one we fought and died for but this is the "change" that is in store when you elect him!

Its is campaign flag/poster he replace the stars with his O logo you can buy it for 35.00 just wait he will change it when he gets the chance. Is there a reason he couldn't use the American flag? It doesnt need a makeover its just fine.
The President of the United States should be embarrassed by the joke he is making of the U.S. and we should all be ashamed of him. I would like to see an American as President!

35.00 look on the right side, guess since the ME is burning our flag he didnt want to be associated with it so he gave it a makeover.

On The Obama website it is being sold as a campaign poster, not a flag.

I dont care what its being sold as whats wrong with the American flag? Except all his friends are burning it
Its a cheap campaign prop to sell for $ 35 and its shameful he might was well take our flag out to the rose garden and burn its same thing & its very disrespectful. But this is Obama, Our Leader, our Commander in Chief.

There's nothing wrong with the American Flag. The image is not meant to be a flag. The image is in the shape of the United States. If he had made the flag into that image, without his logo, it wouldn't have been a campaign poster, would it?

I guess if Rush said it, it has to be true. I wonder if he was smoking crack again? Some people will believe everything they hear. Its said they'll phase out the old stars and stripes by November, rumor has it this one is only a prototype the new one has Hillary eating babies on it.

It is disgusting. To me it reeks of "Obama's America!" This is the United States of America not Obama's America.

Sorry I don' listen to Rush. I cant wait for Obama to get 4 more years of all this garbage he created it makes for great TV everynight we will get to hear about all the horrible things he's doing and just laugh knowing you all wanted him. Be careful what you wish for you may just get him.
More people should be angry that we have 4 dead Americans and a man that is supposed to be our President covering up the terror attack because he wants to be re elected....

What I find interesting about this place is, as my dad once said,"if people ain't got anything to complain about, they ain't got anything to talk about." He used a little more graphic language though.

Uh, this is a political forum. Personally I can't find anything good right now to talk about in the way of politics.

Oh, reading "the Lost City of Z" at this moment and some of those long ago explorers were sure strange.

And the Native American casinos in OK are doing well They paid for the new bridge we got last year. Some politics involved in some places where the explorers were exploring and sure some politics involved in the bridge building. Native Americans may just be laughing all the way to the bank but us who were rejected by the powers that were back then and were not allowed on the government recognized roll aren't. But hey politics are always funny but not in a laughing way. If you can find anything that is good for a laugh about the political scene right now, please, post it. I could use a good laugh today.

Apparently, the "Obama Flag/Poster" in no longer available. An article I read said that if you try to order it you get an error message. I went to www.store.barackobama.com and could not find the poster. I guess they decided it was a bad idea.

Gotta keep the voters happy. When they dropped God and Jerusalem at the DNC as soon as the news started reporting on it, & people started getting upset they took the vote immediately to add it back in. Its to close to the election to be upsetting people.

I found that flag offensive, no matter what its intent was. Saw this campaign sticker at a dove hunt last week...now this is one I'd buy! LOL

I agree with you that is the most disgusting thing i have ever seen.

Really this is the most disgusting thing you have ever seen. All the horrific violent acts that have been done to people in the world, In the last week alone Syria is killing it's citizens, an one of our ambassador was murdered...ect... but a an artistic interpretation of the flag mixed in to a political poster is worse?

Sure it was a mistake. It was too close to a real flag, but they create these types of things all the time, This election year 10,000 will be created and sometimes some mid level worker misses something like this. Just a "sorry that was to close to a us flag" will do and move on to real issues. Trying to be the flag police is silly.

If you take a brief look on google for flags, flag posters, stylized flags, political emblems, ad infinitem, you will surely find something to offend you. Or, maybe inspire you. I'm old enough to remember Peter Fonda and his captain america helmet and gas tank from "Easy Rider" and Abbey Hoffman with his american flag shirt from the protests of the sixties...and subsequently most objections died...

Objections to a stylized campaign poster seem to be little over-blown, and efforts from the right to politicize any and everything seem a little desperate.

I offer in evidence a poster I pulled off a CPAC or TP or Palin site a few years ago.

I guess someone on Obamas side has a brain, 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.
Of course the fact that it was widely ridiculed and looked eerily similar to the aftermath of the attack on our consulate in Benghazi had nothing to do with the decision.
