Default MY God! I hope every one is listening, before it is to late.

MY God! I hope every one is listening, before it is to late.

Perhaps there are SOME out there who are beginning to get 'the picture'. The following is a narrative taken from Sunday September 7, 2008 televised 'Meet The Press', and the author is employed by none other than the Washington Post!! Yeah......the Washington Post of New York and Los Angeles Times fame!! Must say that I'm dually impressed...................



From Sunday's Televised 'Meet the Press'. Senator Obama was asked about his stance on the American Flag. Obama Explains National Anthem Stance

Sun, 07 Sept. 2008 11:48:04 EST, General Bill Ginn' USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain why he doesn't follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.

The General also stated to the Senator that according to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171... During rendition of the national anthem when the flag is displayed, all present except those in uniform are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. At the very least, 'Stand and Face It'

Senator Obama Live on Sunday states, 'As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking sides, Obama said. 'There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression. And the anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all. It should be swapped for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song 'I'd Like To Teach the World To Sing.' If that were our anthem, then I might salute it. 'We should consider to reinvent our National Anthem as well as to redesign our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love. It's my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we as a Nation of warring people, should conduct ourselves as the nations of Islam, whereas peace prevails. Perhaps a state or period of mutual concord between our governments. When I become President, I will seek a pact or agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts. We as a Nation have placed upon the nations of Islam an unfair injustice. My wife disrespects the Flag for many personal reasons. Together she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past, many years ago. She has her views and I have mine'. Of course now, I have found myself about to become the President of the United States and I have put aside my hatred. I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path of hope. My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country's First Family. Indeed, CHANGE is about to overwhelm the United States of America .

WHAAAAAAAT the Hell !!!

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, you heard it right. This could possibly be our next President.

I, for one, am speechless.

Link doesn't work. I am not shocked to hear this though.

I liked Dennis Miller the other day "Who wrote that 'Change We Need', Yoda?"

Thanks rattler. More made-up shit about Obama. What a shocker. As I have said before, if you read anything about either candidate right now that it totally shocking in a negative way it's probably false. Don't you think that McCain's party would be making a HUGE deal out of this if it were true?

I know this will get brought up that there is a famous picture of him not saluting the flag though. There are similar pictures of Bill Clinton, Bush Sr., and Bush Jr. doing the same thing.

He's standing at attention, remember that from when you served?

Obama was just standing around.

You asked to see a pic of Bush not saluting the flag. I provided it. What more do you need? Are you unsure of what you want?

I'm sure I want a proven leader who has proven his patriotism to this country. Obama's not it. Your post a pic of a WWII aviator as if to question his patriotism?

You failed again. Comparing men who fought for our country to one who fights against it.

You are incorrect sir. You asked for a pic of Bush not saluting the flag. I provided it for you. You have to resort to turning the conversation into slander because you have no platform to stand on in this argument.

You keep comparing men of honor to Obama. The guy who couldn't keep a written campaign promise with McCain. As simple as his word and bond.
But the OP was refering to patriotism, the area that Obama is is unclear.

"against all enemies, foreign and domestic"
