      Comment
  • (AP) — Missouri congresswoman Vicky Hartzler is a frequent critic of President Barack Obama. Her concern apparently also extends to his image.
    After a visit Tuesday to the Truman Memorial Veterans Hospital in Columbia, Hartzler was looking for a place to do interviews with reporters.
    The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that Hartzler asked an aide to move a U.S. flag away from a portrait of Obama — apparently so that the president's picture wouldn't be in the background of television camera shots.
    Hartzler is a Republican who represents the 4th Congressional District in west-central Missouri. She has frequently criticized the Democratic president for his policies on health care, taxes and spending and the federal deficit.
