Presidents, Presidential candidates and Mitt Romney opinions of the Confederate flag

First there is this report that President Obama said that the Confederate flag belonged in a museum.

Mitt Romney has come out against the Confederate flag. This has put the Republican presidential candidates on the spot because they are now being asked questions.

Before I go further I would like to point out that I have been mailing the presidential candidates questionnaires as they announce and their campaign mailing address becomes available in the Federal Election Commission reports.

The questionnaire is in this blog posting.

Back to the Washington Post article, the Republican Presidential candidates are mostly saying that it is up to the people of South Carolina to decide. This is a clever avoidance of the issue. Yes, it will be up to the people of South Carolina to decide, but a presidential candidate or anyone else can say whether it would be a good idea or not.

This is another article on how the Republican presidential candidates are trying to side step the issue.

The real issue is that the Republican candidates have a significant portion of their base which is attached to the Confederacy.

Some other candidates and links.

Here is Jindal avoiding taking a stand.

John Kasich doesn't want to engage the issue here.
