Wonder What Barack Obama thinks of this Flag Issue? Promoting Change?


Some one may want to call “Extreme Home Makeover” and nominate this Houston, TX Obama campaign office. Is this the message of change that Barack Obama is promoting? From NewsBusters

Democrat Presidential candidate Barack Obama already has an issue with wearing American Flag lapel pins, and even with putting his hand over his heart when the American National Anthem is playing. It will be interesting to see how he’ll react (if at all) to the flag hanging in one of his new campaign offices in Houston, Texas.

Yep, that’s right — that is the national flag of Cuba hanging on the wall with none other than Che Guevara superimposed on it.

      The real question is not whether Obama is a Cuban sympathizer, but whether he’s actually an agent of a hostile alien power from a distant galaxy:

      This time next year all might wear a turban on their head. I also think he racist.

      Change IS what you will get with Hussein Obama. Are you ready for it?

      Obama is one scary dude if you look not at what he says but rather what the people around him say. I do believe that Obama is a Muslim and a racist.

      But the Democrats other choices are Hillary who doesn’t know how to tell the truth, has a dysfunctional husband and is totally a Marx’s Socialist.

      Then the Democrats have Juan Amnesty McCain. The true GOP base surely doesn’t want him. He’s a war hero but also a liar and a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

      Some choice, huh America.

      I’m sick of all the political mud rucking and slinging. I’m from the 60′s and trust me, Obama is just like Kennedy. To me you people who make up rumors are just as bad as the ones who assinated Kennedy and Martin Luther King. This is history in the making. I believe this man, Obama will be the best thing that ever happen for our country and we will have positive outcomes in foreign offers. I believe other countries will be incline to listen to him at peace talks and agree with him to stop the war. I believe this man will fight to bring our boys home. He is a caring person. We need to give him a chance. I just turned on the TV and heard a talk show host majorly bash Obama with speculation and of course more mud rucking. I was dissapointed with him for being sooooo petty. I have researched Obama and he is nothing like what the misinformants are saying. You know John F. Kennedy went thru this also and he is one of this countries greatist presidents. To that talk show host (can’t believe he’s Morman, Hinkley is probably turning over in his grave), “Shame on you”. “Shame on you for making up a dirty lie!! The rest of you, time to get informed and stop repeating rumors. Rumors hurt. Rumors distroy lives. Enough!!!!! You too Hilary!!!!

      SM It’s obvious you’re republican,Guess what nobody cares. You continue to slam the democratic party. Why do you do this. What has this admenistration done for Natalee Holloway. Need some help? NOTHIHG!! This admenistration features the worst president in our history, 30% popularity pole result. Hey he earned it. FOR MORE OF THE SAME VOTE JOHN McCAIN> Hey,I don’t want Hillary or Obama nor do I want McCain.Our choices suck. My point is forget parties,choose the best man for the job,reguardless of his or her party. The reason I bring up Natalee is,I feel this sight was built around her. She is why I visit this sight.Oh yea and please tell me what’s conservitive about a 400 billion dollar defficit?

      “I do believe that Obama is a Muslim and a racist.”

      Really? What pray tell leads you believe that? A couple of false BS e-mails?

      If this is the only strategy the Republicans have, you might as well just hand the Dems the presidency right now.

    8. katablog on February 12th, 2008 7:54 pm

      # 7 – No, I would NEVER go by an email or stuff that is written even as an opinion. I went to the web site of Obama’s pastor and read what the Pastor said. Obama has never spoken out and said “I don’t believe these things” and he continues to attend that church. What am I left to believe?

      I would love for Obama to not be what he appears to be. He attracted our attention at the 2004 Democratic convention – then I started checking into him – it’s been down hill ever since.

      I personally believe “we the people” have NO choice this year.

    9. KAREN on February 12th, 2008 8:15 pm

      I spent several evenings researching obama. I challenge everyone of you to research him. Not just with rumors but facts. Have you read his book. I challenge you to and surprise, you may just like him when you know what this man stands for. Also, that video (mentioned above). You think I’m stupid. One little office and 3 women (probably hired by Obama’s opponents). I know his headquarters is alot bigger than that tiny little office. Again stupid rumors. Stupid smear campaign and the constant BS in these articles. Doesn’t anyone get the “REAL” facts. Now do your homework!!!!!!

    10. yoyo muffintop on February 12th, 2008 8:31 pm

      Katablog – it’s a Church of Christ.
      He and the TUCC are Christian.

      Let me guess – you believe he’s a covert worshiper of the Muslim faith.

      Why must you bear false witness against Christians?

    11. mrs. red on February 12th, 2008 8:43 pm

      Yo Yo – what I read from Trinity of Chicago freaked me out a little… I have never been to a Christian church ever that promoted one race over another… espeically in thier mission statement.

    12. yoyo muffintop on February 12th, 2008 9:43 pm

      mrs. red – Ever hear of Anglican Church/Greek Orthodox Church/etc? Some might even say the Roman Catholic Church (but that’s for another day/topic).

      Nothing I’ve read has freaked me out.
      It’s a Christian church in the inner city. They don’t ban white people – they merely cater to the needs of their worshipers. One would expect a church in a predominantly Black community to, naturally, be concerned primarily with those things which concern the members of its congregation.


    13. Allan on February 12th, 2008 9:48 pm

      yo yoooooooooooooo

      I am a Democrat if that matters. Yes I know about misinformation and what he has said and who he associates with KAREN. Do you? I am here for Natalee
      and killing time in the meantime.

      May you wear your turban in peace and not get beheaded. Goodnight Dems and Rep with no president to choose.

    14. yoyo muffintop on February 12th, 2008 11:04 pm

      Allan – it doesn’t matter but thanks for the info. Care to enlighten us as to why you think Obama is racist and a Muslim…or are you just one of those conspiracy dudes?
      Maybe I’ll learn something that’ll change my mind. I’ve yet to see anyone actually give valid reasons on the Muslim thing. Key word “valid”.
      Maybe you’ll be the first.
      Thank you in advance.

      Apparently Trinity has cleaned up their web site, but this is some of Wright’s talking points removed:
      Several prior remarks by Obama’s pastor have caught the media’s attention:

      # Wright on 9/11: “White America got their wake-up call after 9/11. White America and the Western world came to realize people of color had not gone away, faded in the woodwork, or just disappeared as the Great White West kept on its merry way of ignoring black concerns.” On the Sunday after the attacks, Dr. Wright blamed America.

      # Wright on the disappearance of Natalee Holloway: “Black women are being raped daily in Africa. One white girl from Alabama gets drunk at a graduation trip to Aruba, goes off and gives it up while in a foreign country and that stays in the news for months.”

      # Wright on Israel: “The Israelis have illegally occupied Palestinian territories for over 40 years now. Divestment has now hit the table again as a strategy to wake the business community and wake up Americans concerning the injustice and the racism under which the Palestinians have lived because of Zionism.”

      # Wright on America: He has used the term “middleclassness” in a derogatory manner; frequently mentions “white arrogance” and the “oppression” of African-Americans today; and has referred to “this racist United States of America.”

      Like McCain, you can pull any name you wish out of a hat and claim it, but that doesn’t mean it’s true. McCain’s not a conservative and Obama’s minister’s proclamations are not Christian.

      I watch CSPAN and yesterday morning a 13 year boy called in to say he supported Obama. When asked why he stated he thought it was great that Obama didn’t put his hand on his heart during the Pledge Of Allegiance. To me very disturbing.
      Watch out America..the “Change” you may well be getting could be more than you bargained for.
      PS. I go for my citizenship interview in two weeks…if I don’t pay proper respect to our flag and the Pledge of Allegiance I very much doubt I will be granted my citizenship and RIGHTLY SO.
      This man is indeed dangerous.

      Far-left symbolism, such as that evident in the display of Che Guevara propaganda, seems to be important to the Barack Obama campaign. Four months ago, I pointed out another example of it in a post, Photo on Obama Web Site Raises Questions. In that post, I questioned the subliminal message the liberal Democrat hoped to convey by posting on his campaign website a photo of Obama sitting in front of a framed photo of Muhammad Ali standing over a knocked-down opponent in a boxing ring. Oh, the symbolism!

    18. Lisa on February 22nd, 2008 7:45 pm

      I hate to say this but every time we have a presidential election, the choices suck.

      So what if Obama is a little bit socialistic? Maybe that’s what this country needs! Have you seen the movie Sicko? I know Moore is a little over the edge but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see what goes on right in front of our faces with these drug companies and the HMOs basically killing people over porfits.

      And lets not kid ourselves in thinking we’re living in a free country. I mean, what exactly does the CIA do anyway? What really happened to Vince Foster? And what the hell is the US Patriot Act about? I mean, really! Free? Not quite!

    19. Lisa on February 22nd, 2008 8:10 pm

      … oops, that was supposed to say “profits” not “porfits” – brain moving faster than fingers.

    20. bob guilbert on August 12th, 2008 8:41 pm

      Every product has a logo. He repainted his plane with a logo to distinguish himself and now he’s an anti-American, terrorist-supporting, negro. This is propaganda used to instill fear in people who aren’t reading the news and, to keep them distracted them from losing their house & their job & paying $4+ per gallon in order to steer the vote away.

      The disgrace is whats running the country and what will continue if McCain’s elected. Have you ever listened to ‘W’, the leader of (hopefully still) the most powerful nation in the world speak? He doesn’t do interviews without knowing what they’re going to ask in advance so he can have his guys formulate replies for him! That’s mostly so he doesn’t embarrass the party since he obviously has no shame making up words when he needs to. Ever hear Obama speak? Enough said there.

      Republicans are the ones who’ve truly tarnished America’s name around the world, raised world oil prices, crashed the domestic AND international credit & housing markets, raised domestic & global food prices, exported thousands of US jobs, raised our unemployment rate. Oh and made up a war in Iraq costing hundreds of billions of US$, half of which went to contractors made up largely of his contracting buddies & family on no-bid contracts. There are as many contracted positions in Iraq as there are soldiers…staggering notion. All about big money, big oil, and big corporations and little or nothing for the average guy (like reasonable health care), excepting his buds of course. This list goes on. That is the Republican politician mindset at work.

      Sadly whoever gets voted in is gonna be left holding the biggest bag of all time. McCain’s buddy, Gramm, wrote the bill in 2000 that enabled the current credit crisis, dozens of SEC fraud cases, the energy crisis (eg., Enron), etc., by relaxing the laws that controlled trading & checks & balances on those industries, obviously to make a buck, ie, using his office for personal gain. Thousand’s of people lost their pensions because of it but he & his wife made a couple million. This guy would be our next financial advisor per McCain.

      Many people think Obama’s a civil rights activist because he’s part black. Do people really think if he’s elected all the blacks will get handouts, gain power and crush the white man? People won’t vote for him out of this fear and it blows my mind. He does not support Jesse Jackson’s or Al Sharpton’s agenda of empowering people based on race. He is not a man with his hand out, nor does he promote it. I’ll admit the Democrats have had some sorry asses contending for president.

      He’s selling a dream (whatever it is) and I’m in…I’ve scene Bush’s reality for 8 years now. This mess can all be laid at his & the Republican’s feet.

      done ranting…pass the bowl

      Usually I dont get involved in stuff like this but I will give it a go for now. As far as Barack not putting his hand over his heart during the National Anthem, I saw that video and that is legit and completely disrespectful because I have been to Iraq twice and even though I dont agree with the war I still did my service and expect others to show that same respect as I do, I have a few friends that died doing what they thought was right for that flag, but I digress.
      What many people fail to see is that Congress is, if my memory serves me correctly, roughly 70% Democrat and also what they dont realize is that Congress is what really runs this country, NOT THE PRESIDENT, he is just the boss that is the head of the country, this country could be run without him. Also our economy is run by a man name Alan Greenspan, quite notably the real most powerful man in AMerica if not the world because he controls the almighty dollar. When people started selling off mortgages and started doing some stock trading that was deemed illegal back in teh early 1900s our economy dropped to where it is today. Also the oil prices are dictated by the countries that we buy them from, some people are actually dumber than they look. Have you seen where that reservation up north where they want to drill in AL? It is the most barren piece of land that I have ever seen, I dont even think I saw any plants up there and if they do drill I feel sorry for the poor saps that are gonna work up there because it is colder than a witch’s tit in the dead of December, little Halloween pun sorry. Anyway that is all for me. I think what everyone is doing here is good, more people should get involved, and it would be a lot better if my vote really counted. Let’s vote to get rid of the electoral college next shall we or at least MAKE the candidate that loses the popular vote concede, that would be great too. You know at least let the people think that they can make a difference I mean isnt this country supposed to be run by the people, the common man, Joe the Plumber, lol, that guy is soooo famous now. I love my country but this is not a democracy it is a hypocrisy and bureaucracy, run by the big wigs for some other people. If the Trickle Down Theory really worked then we would much better off.
