Florida DNC Flies An Obama 'Face' U.S. Flag

If you were disgusted by Barack Obama's logo flag limited edition print he's selling on his website, check this out. This goes back to March, 2012, but it's still relevant.

The Lake County Democratic Headquarters in Tavares, Florida, was flying a Stars and Stripes with Obama's face plastered in the area normally saved for the stars. Sure, they had a regular one as well, but the arrogance.

Local military vets were outraged, and demanded it be removed.

"It's absolutely disrespectful," Jim Bradford, a 71-year-old veteran who participated in the Bay of Pigs Invasion said. "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, Florida, 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."

There was an apology and it was finally removed.

You can buy one of those face flags for $24.95.
