    TAVARES — A flag depicting an image of President Barack Obama was taken down from Lake County Democratic Party headquarters today after several veterans complained it was a "desecration."

    A short confrontation at the Democratic office ended when party chairwoman Nancy Hurlbert took down the controversial flag, which had been flying under an American flag on the same flagpole.

    "It's a cult of personality to show his face, like Stalin or Mao," said John Masterjohn, a former Marine and retired schoolteacher from Leesburg. "It's despicable. They don't realize how sick they are."

    I absolutely agree it is a desecration and the kind of thing only an ego-maniacal despot does -in the hopes the rest of the world is dumb enough to believe it shows how beloved he is by the masses. You don't do that in a representative republic.

    Yes, because I'm sure the President is sitting around designing these things.

    It should have been removed. It's not appropriate in the least.

    The idea that this is coming down from on high though is absurd. If you really want to hold the President accountable for this, then you've got to hold Republican leaders accountable for the vile racist stuff put out by county parties.

    I'm glad it was brought down.

    This isn't Iraq we don't want our president's face on everything. The flag is the last place his face belongs on anyway. It was desecration to say the least.
