And don't insult my flag by silencing freedom of speech/expression. Methinks that Obama had no idea that the flag was there, even if it is in bad taste. Why do conservatives worship the Constitution until it is invoked in ways they disagree with?

Don't insult my flag by having that murderer in there. It's possible Obama might not have known what was going on in that office but wow I expected better from Obama representatives.
blah let me stir the pot a little bit
As has been said OVER and OVER and OVER again it's not even his official campaign office. Is Obama supposed to monitor his millions of supporters and watch their every move to make sure they are politically correct? It's a non event PERIOD. As CastleIsland said, the great thing about our country is freedom of speech and expression, even if it is showing support for Che. The minute we stray from that right is the minute I leave the country.
...just in case, I'm an American citizen, not that you two should care and yes most likely Obama had no idea, that's almost obvious.
However it's valid to question (out of curiosity at least) why someone REPRESENTING the next president has a foreign flag with a murderer & symbol of communism, which represents opression and wipes its rear end with the "freedom of speech and expression" you two seem so concerned about. I didn't say they have to take the flag down, but it's a pretty unbelievable sight (and for some disturbing). Something one could expect to see in Hugo Chavez's office maybe
I'd feel like some kind of ignorant if I went to vote for Obama and saw that. I'd turn right around and vote for someone else! -Wait look how revolutionary we are, vote for change Vote for Che!
You know, freedom of speech rules. I love it. Might as well stick a photo of Saddam Hussein to an American flag and bring it to one of those a.net spotting meets just for Castleisland and N521NA If you tell me I'm unpatriotc or just look at me weird I'll tell you both to move somewhere else... maybe even give you the firnger too, why not. I expect you both to be very understanding too and even nice with my freedom of expression.
The only thing wrong with the good 'ol US is lack of common sense as evidenced by some who believe one should probably wear and salute a flag to be patriotic and all of that. Pictures and numbers can be manipulated, although look at where Obama's hands are.. LOL Still doesn't make me think he's less of a "patriot" than Hillary.
Extremists on both sides of the political spectrum are no good. Both McCain and Obama are pretty good choices if they don't try to please the extremists on both camps
Also I have to question Cfalk's (whose pictures I admire on a.net) patriotic view that English should be the official language. Kind of has a egocentric, selfish ring to it and not typical of someone who just said lived half of his life in Europe, where speaking two or three languages is common. Most immigrants learn some English anyways. How hard is it to learn a few basic Spanish words? Is it patriotism or laziness? Making English the official language sets up many for discrimination by extremists who can't wait for a reason to give people a hard time. Freedom of expression my butt.
Furthermore cementing my observation that this country probably has the worst common sense among the civilized world, we see a guy like Tom Tancredo, hoping to be president so he comes out saying we need to make English the official language otherwise "do we want the US to become another Miami"? bahahaha... Even if tommy really thinks it was clever thing to say, hes' counting himself out of millions and millions of votes automatically. He certainly kissed the florida vote goodbye with that gem alone. Then an obvious liar like Romney at times was leading the GOP poll. Where are the "conservatives" with their moral values? You're voting for a flip-flopping liar.
Lastly (if you're still awake) I'll tell you the story of my grandma, who at around 80yrs of age went to get her citizenship. Just because she doesn't understand English well... when asked to raise her hand to swear allegiance and my grandma didn't raise it (lol) -because she didn't understand- the redneck lady threw a fit and grandma didn't get the citizenship. She's now 91 and still has better mental awareness than the average 70 year old and knows 10x more history and civility than the hillbilly citizenship lady even knows exists. A typically ignorant 'patriotic' type with no common sense couldn't give grandma a break.

Why? Don't you realize that both Democratic candidates want Socialism? Obama may not have known about the Che flag in his "unofficial" campaign office but the fact remains that he is for more government, more taxes and socialism. Both him and Hillary scare me, especially when told of Exxons record profits Hillary was quoted as saying "I will take them" I mean can it get any worse? I think it is a stretch to tie Obama to one of Castro's hatchet men like Che but if you take a good look Obama shares some of his policital views and that is why I will vote against him.
: What's up NIKV69, maybe I'm confused but I thought you were one of the biggest liberals on a.net. I'd see you voting for Hilarry lol. For some reason Senga told me about you before and mentioned that you guys used to go spotting in NY
I wonder if wearing that MickeyChe around South Beach would get a few laughs. Wouldn't be surprised to see some hippy from Argentina come up and tell me Im disrespecting Che
