Sentinel, as I'm sure there are some sympathizers for more ultraconservative causes for candidates on the right. I'm sure there are a bunch of white supremacists down south who are supporting Mike Huckabee or someone else. Doesn't make Mike Huckabee a white supremacist.

But, I am a Barack supporter (not a follower, he is not a religious leader) and I am NOT a communist sympathizer. And just because this supporter might be a communist sympathizer, it does not make Barack a communist.

A candidate cannot pick and choose who his supporters are, but if I may take a shot at Senator Clinton here...I'm sure she has a lot more communist sympathizers in her court considering she wants to mandate health coverage and penalize those who do not conform with her plan!

I love that the Obama site statement doesn't say anything aginst the flag or what it represent, just that it is't an Official headquarters.. I find it telling knowing the types of people that support the canidates.... Oh and by the by Neo, If there was a video of Huckabee supporterswith a picture of the kkk in the background, I am pretty sure the same questions (or bigger ones) would be raised.

DL, I'm not doubting that they would be raised.
I'm just saying that a candidate cannot be held responsible for the actions of every single supporter they have...

And you know I'm an Obama supporter, what do you think that says of me?

Even so, it behooves Obama to tell them if they want to volunteer for his campaign, he does not want to be associated with Che.

Neo- it says you are a silly Democrat.. jk

I didn't say that who you support says something about you (though it obviously does). I said that who supports a canidate is telling of them(the canidate).

So, I support Obama.
And you've gotten to know me pretty well.
So does that make Obama a silly Democrat?

DL! I'm just playing!
But what you're saying is that because alleged communist sympathizers support Obama, it speaks to the possibility of Obama being a communist. Correct?

There is also something in Obama that appeals to evangelical Church nattendees (based on exit polls)...I find that interesting too...

If this is real, I'm sure we'll see more about it on CNN, etc. because there's no way you elect someone who says I won't put my hand on my heart for the pledge of allegiance, or wear a pin of the American flag, but then hangs a flag of an anti-american enemy in his office?!


Won't Obama put his hand on his heart for the Pledge of Allegiance to the American Flag?

Of course Obama places his hand on his heart for the Pledge.
He has even led the Pledge in the Senate chambers.
He stands by his being taught that you stand at attention during the playing of the National Anthem, and you do not place your hand over your heart.
