Obama explains National Anthem
Body: Hot on the heels of his explanation for why he no longer wears a flag pin, presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama was forced to explain why he doesn't follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.



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.



"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.

"

WHAAAAAAAT!!!!!!!!!! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this could possibly be our next president. I, for once, am speechless.


Freakin unbelievable!!!!!!!!

He better take sides..........if he is not on the side of AMERICA he MUST NOT EVEN BE CONSIDERED for the office he is seeking. We do not need a man in office that will not salute the flag. The world knows how to sing, what they need to know is that the USA will defend what that flag stands for.



Pass It On Before It's To Late Let's Teach The World About This Idiot.:eek::thumb:

THe liberal Progressive Socialists will agree 100% with this BS. Our flag, our country, our patriotism. All same same. Those that refuse to stand and deliver are cowards and traitors and should be treated accordingly. One day they will be.

But don't you see the real problem? The perception of Obama is that he is so non-American that the lie is extremely believable. It demonstrates that he has a perception problem regarding where his loyalties lie.
Shh. Not supposed to talk to me, I have been declared a coward and traitor by this forum's leading spokesman.

Watch out, or you will be added to his list of enemies to be liquidated when the Day of the Rope cometh.

Not many.... what if someone said that about McCain? It would be dismissed as ridiculous immediately because regardless of what one politically thinks of McCain he has huge credibility regarding patriotism: A former military officer, prisoner of war, physically incapacitated from the injuries as a POW (which is why he can't type emails.) However the exact same thing said about Obama receives consideration. It is not unbelievable or unthinkable to assert Obama has patriotism issues. No military service, issues over the flag, a foreign father and no sense of place. The suggestion that he doesn't like the national anthem, even if a lie, falls on receptive ears precisely because Obama is perceived to have patriotism issues.

All you did was spew a bunch of rhetoric. "no sense of place" that doesn't mean anything nor can it be proven.
