Another example of Obama's arrogance and disrespect.

An American flag with President Obama's image in place of the stars flew over a Florida county's Democrat headquarters long enough to enrage local veterans who called the altered banner "a disgrace."

Lake County Democratic Party officials took down the flag, which flew just below a standard Old Glory on the flagpole outside headquarters in Tavares following complaints by local veterans. But merely taking it down wasn't enough for several local veterans, who said they fought for the flag Betsy Ross made famous, not one with a politician on it.





"It's absolutely disrespectful," Jim Bradford, a 71-year-old veteran who participated in the Bay of Pigs Invasion told FoxNews.com. "It's totally ridiculous. To put somebody's picture there, to me, it's a disgrace to do that."

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.

Yeah, That is a bit uncalled for. I wonder what caused them to do such an outrageous thing?

....I don't see the problem here,

I know americans are sensitive about their flag but I don't see the problem with having a flag with obamas face as part of advertising on a democratic headquarters building.

I have to go with you on this one Hoppy... mostly.

Whoever came up with that flag is an idiot.

However, it is highly doubtful that Obama had anything whatever to do with it.

OK, Hoppy, first of all this is near Leesburg, FL. Have you ever been to that part of the state??? I have, not much intelligent life there anywhere!! Besides, I think this was one of those hillbilly Republicans who just wanted to stir the pot a bit!!!

I think he's getting too complacent and sloppy. Over the past year voters have noticed his lack of 'soul' and where he stands, firmly with islam, the enemy.

He wasn't 'slick' enough to hide his shark eyes and dark heart, so he got eager, anxious and sloppy. Fortunately, those with clear eyes can see it. He's a muslim through and through - hating on the Infidels. That's what they do.

Headline should have been

Outrage as man in the White house has his face on flag.

But no one died, got married, divorced or in a sticky situation over a dollar bill.
