Seriously, you want this for President of these great United States.This is how he catches the attention of a media aligned with the terror force? This useful tool won't wear an American flag pin? Talk about pandering to the radical base, he ought to run against Ahmadinejad.
He is scoring points with Georgie Soros. Won't be waiting long for his Soros stipend, I'm sure. What's Obama Hussein's new campaign slogan, "America Sucks!" ? Polls out today show Obama is down 30 points off sHrillary - is this his attempt to grab the Move on and Media Matters crowd?
Clearly Obama is running for vice-president. European socialist Clinton pretends to be a moderate and Obama snares the code pink crowd.
Obama Dropped Flag Pin in War Statement Obama Stops Wearing Flag Pin,Says He'll Show Patriotism Through Ideas
By DAVID WRIGHT and SUNLEN MILLER ABC News
Patriotism to what country Obama Hussein?
An eagle-eyed reporter for the ABC affiliate in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, noticed something missing from Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama's lapels.
"You don't have the American flag pin on. Is that a fashion statement?" the reporter asked, at the end of a brief interview with Sen. Obama, D-Ill. "Those have been on politicians since September 12, 2001."
The standard political reply to that question might well have been, "My patriotism speaks for itself." But Obama didn't say that.
Instead the Illinois senator answered the question at length, explaining that he no longer wears such a pin, at least in part, because of the Iraq war.
"You know, the truth is that right after 9/11, I had a pin," Obama said. "Shortly after 9/11, particularly because as we're talking about the Iraq war, that became a substitute for I think true patriotism, which is speaking out on issues that are of importance to our national security, I decided I won't wear that pin on my chest.
"Instead," he said, "I'm going try to tell the American people what I believe will make this country great, and hopefully that will be a testimony to my patriotism."
The Obama campaign declined to expand on the Senator's statement. Spokesman Bill Burton said, "his comments speak for themselves."
Obama is not alone in not wearing the stars and stripes pin. ABC News' Eloise Harper, the off-air reporter covering the Clinton campaign, notes that she has never seen Hillary Clinton sport the ubiquitous flag lapel pin on the campaign trail.
America, vote American!
UPDATE: Larwyn send this little pearl from the leftards handmaidens, the mainstream media's affable Eava Braun;
"The whole culture of wearing flags on our lapel and saying 'we' when referring to the United States and, even the 'shock and awe' of the initial stages, it was just too jubilant and just a little uncomfortable."\
