Stories circulating about flags at the Democratic National Convention are false. We distributed more than 125,000 American made flags at the Convention - the flags removed from Invesco field were intended for other events and taken without permission. It's disappointing that someone would take American flags without authorization and then falsely describe how they were being used. We have the utmost respect for the American flag, and it's sad to see them being used for a cheap political stunt
Of course, there is no way of knowing if the flags would have ended up being discarded if that vendor had not taken them. Even if they had all that would mean was that at most a small handful of people were careless and certainly not that anyone was unpatriotic, especially not Barack Obama or the entire Democratic party.
When asked specifically about it, John McCain always denies that he questions Barack's patriotism, but here he goes again.
