This Takes Hero Worship Too Far

This is just not appropriate:
The Democrats in one county are so swept up in the cult of Obama that they have replaced the stars on our national flag with the image of their Dear Supreme Leader.

FoxNews has updated information:
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.
Really? Only veterans complained? What is wrong with people?

You really wanna feel proud as an American. Watch the old woman and how angry she was when she was told how this violated the flag code.

I saw this report. I would not characterize the woman as angry -- she was just ignorant of the fact that you don't do that with the flag, and she didn't want to be told, out of hand, what to do. She did some research, realized she was wrong, and took it down on her own. Honestly, if you're not in the military or the Boy Scouts, how likeky are you to know the flag code? At least she was trying . . . and she did have a real American flag flying as well, properly placed higher. Give her a break.
