Captain Ed, loyal party flack.
I would take this as a sign that the GOP now feels threatened by Obama.
BTW- Is there anyone except the troglodyte right who thinks our Cuba policy has been a success and doesn’t need to be thought through? I mean, if you want to look at long-term failed policies, Cuba could be right up there at the top. What exactly has been accomplished?
*** Update ***
LOL- Ed responds:
John Cole doesn’t see anything wrong with a presidential campaign office featuring a Cuban flag with a picture of Che Guevara? Along with the ubiquitous personal insult towards anyone with whom he disagrees, John tries to cast it as a courageous statement that our policy towards Cuba needs to be rethought. And he calls me a flack?
Yeah, I was clearly trying to frame the sign as questioning a policy. I should have called you a moron. Seriously, the point of this is that you are now making a big deal out of nothing, and as a loyal GOP soldier, it is up to you to make a stink out of what is essentially nothing. But you know that, and we know what your role is- Dan Bartlett told us.
*** Update #2 ***
From the comments:
As I tried to point out in the comments at CQ (and for the record, Ed is a friend of mine) you need to listen to the AUDIO of the tape instead of just looking at the picture. The reporter at… yes – FOX… specifically says that these are VOLUNTEERS who are OPENING the office, and that the actual Obama staffers are expected to be there by the END OF THE WEEK. Hello?
Hyperbole anyone? I do like Ed and enjoy his blog, but this particular new media attack smells a tad of desperation to get some dirt on Obama. Ed didn’t originate it, but it will run across the e-mail lines just like the now long since debunked “Obama is a double secret Muslim who attended a AQ suicide bomber grade school” story. Unfortunate.
Get used to it, as it is going to be a long year. The party apparatchiks like Ed will have a busy schedule creating fake controversies like this, and we have not even had the “Hussein” Obama, fifth columnist, onslaught yet. But don’t you dare call them party flacks! Then you become unreadable!
