Somebody better tell them to take it down when the cameras are present. It might not play well with less revolutionary minded voters. Just sayin'.

How else do you expect him to pander to the Latino community? Because after all, aren't all latinos revolutionaries?

Hilarious. Some dude in Nebraska supporting Obama has Che on his wall and now the Obama campaign is "pandering" to the Latino Community? The Latino Community in Omaha? You think that poster influenced the Latino Voting Bloc?

Hillary supporters are clutching at straws and it is a sad thing to witness.

lol--it really is laughable.
What a load of manufactured, bogus moral indignation, but then it is along the same lines as that silly "Obama is a terrorist Muslim who hates the US flag" stuff.

One thing about all these anti-Obama tidbits is the fact that Hillary Clinton has already been through her own wringer with the GOP attack dogs.
There can't be much left for them to use on her.

You obviously haven't been around politics that long or are politicall naive. Nothing is unstaged when it comes to media coverage in a campagin controlled environment, especially Campaign HQ's. He is indeed sending a message to the Latino community: "I'll fight for you and your rights. Just like Che did."

He quotes Malcom X and Farakhan* almost daily. "Hoodwinked" is used in nearly every speech he makes now. He actually used the whole "Hoodwinked, bamboozeled and duped" quote at one of the debates. Dosen't he say Hillary will say anything to get elected?

*To be fair, He has denounced Farakhans anti-semitic hatred, and says he has distanced himself from Farakhan.

After his death, Guevara became an icon of socialist revolutionary movements and a cultural icon worldwide.

Che Guevara??Well he was a leftist like Obama so....

I find the admiration of che kind of strange considering he was a cold blooded murderer.
