Remember all the flags that served as background props during Sen. Obama’s appearance at Invesco Field? It turns out that after they served their purpose, they were discarded like yesterday’s trash. Luckily, an Invesco Field worker salvaged what the Obama campaign deems to be trash. While this will most likely go unnoticed by the general public, the story is ripe with symbolism.
Ed at HotAir links the US Flag Code that dictates the appropriate way to dispose of a flag.
I just spoke with the person at Invesco who found the flags and he thinks both sides are exaggerating a bit. The person claims the majority of the bags with flags in them were near the trash, on a dock, and would have been thrown away. The person thinks it was probably an “oversight” by the Democrats rather than any nefarious plot against the flag. But the person doesn’t believe anyone was coming to get them: “The flags were there for a week and a day and no one came looking for them.”
Obviously, Barry doesn’t involve himself in the flag-donation process, but as I said before, it’s ripe with symbolism and it isn’t something he needed at this point in his campaign.
