The photo of Obama fits into none of these categories..

Most of the other photos missing the american flag, also is missing the White House logo as well, meaning they indeed fit into the category above
Here is another quote from the snopes article:

"On this occasion, it was the case that no US flags were present (within visible camera range) in the East Room."

We know on this occasion there were no flags present. Thats what the thread is about. I didnt think it important to quote the obvious..

The relevant phrase is "within camera range". It may have been in the back of the room, or somewhere else. Get it?

The first thing that caught my eye at this press conference was the background.

Look at the ugly tapestry behind him and the two columns.

Look at the details in the tapestry. What does the pattern remind you of?

Lets never forget this man was taught at an early age by his American hating Mom that America is bad and everyone else is good.

It is in his blood and in his brain.

Anyone notice the cocky little face and attitude lately?

If anyone would question him about not having a flag behind him he probably would blame someone or want to kick their arse.

Face it, the man does not like America very much. We can all accept that.

I've been in this room, its not large enough that cameras wouldnt be able to take photos of it due to range limits..

In addition, "may have been", doesnt help the argument much when you think about it..

Why some of you continue to make excuses for thing lame duck is beyond me! Face it,you fell for his speeches and that's all he is...a smooth talker! This guy could light the flag on fire and some of you would still stick up for him. Stop blaming GW and do your damn job,you wanted it and now you have NO idea what to do! After 18 months he's done nothing but shove a health care bill down our throats that's only going to bankrupt us even more and go on his world wide apology tour!!
