It's a picture of a flag on a wall, what makes you believe it has anything to do with Obama?

If it said the picture was of a basement office in the White House would you be asking the same question about Bush?

The article says "It’s tacked onto the wall of an office in Barack Obama’s Houston campaign headquarters."

And what does Bush have to do with this?

Just because an article "says" something we're supposed to take it to be fact?

YouTube - Barack Obama and Che Guevara

It was from a Fox News Houston report. Here's a video. Paid staffers man the office by the end of the week.

I have a large poster of him and I'm as far from a communist as you can get; the poster helps make my otherwise lame dorm room look more lively. So what's the big deal? You know I hope his detractors do continue to use attacks like this, it just makes Obama look more appealing if this is the best they can come up with.

Is it contrived or is it false? I am just curious. If it is true I think it is a serious issue. If it is false, then mea culpa. Can you send a link that refutes this? I didn't see a previous thread on this subject.

You really should do some research on what Che Guevera did. You might not find his image so appealing.

Obama potentially being a communist is not a serious issue??? If the story is false then I understand, but if his Texas Headquarters has a Cuban flag hanging on it then it implies he is a communist. And if he is a communist then I (for one) will not vote for him.
