Obamas and the Flag

obama flag newFrom Snopes: "Of the first (not wearing a flag pin), Obama's actual explanation went as follows:

"You know, the truth is that right after 9/11, I had a pin. 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, I'm going to try to tell the American people what I believe will make this country great, and hopefully that will be a testimony to my patriotism."
(Source: ABC News, Oct. 4, 2007.)

What a lame excuse! I'd have more respect if he said he couldn't find it! or didn't have one. Or left it on his other suit.  But to call the flag pin a substitute for patriotism???  Really!!!??
As for his other faux pas, not covering his heart with his hand when everyone else is and he knows eyes are on him, what was that?  Ignorance?  Or friendship with flag burners? 

Furthermore, his attitude toward the flag in his actual quote --is consistent with the video taken a year ago at the 9/11 ceremony of Michelle whispering something that looked like "All this for a   d... flag!" And his look in response to her.

They sure allow room to think they belittle the flag as a symbol of our nation --and disrespect the solemnity of ceremonies involving the flag. It's understandable, given their backgrounds. And now we have this new flag  ABOVE with his O on it -- and stripes like the blood smears on the wall in the photo from the middle east. 

If they're smart, they'll say it was a tribute to the fallen --but with the O in the corner?  Doesn't wash.

I think it's really weird --the coincidence of their actions with the anti-American mentors they had.   Then there was the covering of  Georgetown U's. in-obvious Christian symbol high up on the wall behind him when he was to speak there --and his messing with the flag using the Obama "O" --and his photo in place of the stars in one case. Why can't he learn from the criticism?  There are actually U.S. laws against messing with the flag this way.   Does he have a message he'd rather get to his radical supporters? Some signal indicating that he is still with Ayers, Doehrn, Davis, Alinsky, Khalidi, Rezko, Islamists and other flag and country haters at heart? Or are the Obamas just insensitive, obtuse, slow-learning and ill-mannered?

Pray for God's Will --whatever it is.  
I just hope it isn't Judgment through our  
election of  the wrong man.

About Romney and Snooky

I blog at a newspaper --liberal one --big city --and here are 2 comments about Romney's comment in interview for TV where he said he enjoys Snooky --on Jersey Shore.  The 2nd comment is mine.  (The reason I don't identify the newspaper here is because I don't want to be stalked and harrassed by someone who would again have me in his cross-hairs.)

The more I thought about Romney's comments in the interview, the more I find them disturbing. He is the potential leader of this country, he could not pick anyone better than Snooki? There are plenty young men and women in the entertaining business who devote themselves to humanitarian causes, he has to pick Snooki?
As to the comment "I heard the best answer is as little as possible." Oh, Where is your own mind, Mr. Romney?
Both what Mitt and Ann said in the interview are undignified. Th whole irony is this: Romney won't release his tax returns beyond two years, he won't tell us the details of his economic plans and foreign policies, but he is willing tell us that he likes Snooki? If he is elected, God helps us!

Gee whiz --I learned on this blog that Obama said something about Snooky in some interview moment --and then later didn't recall knowing who that was. Remember that Dave Letterman and Jay Leno and comedy channel stars --talk about Snooky. So pop culture knows who Snooky is --whether or not Obama and Romney really do.

Remember that Obama just called a radio show, The Pimp with the Limp, recently --in Fla. to express his appreciation for a couple of specific songs --so he is pandering to common folk with common tastes, too. Both trying to shed the label of elitists.

So how disturbing is that?

It should disturb you more that the influences on Obama are Alinsky who wrote Rules for Radicals,  Karl Marx, Communist FM Davis, Weathermen bombers Ayers & Doehrn, anti-Israel Muslim Prof. khaldi and Muslim slumlord Tony Rezko, and Rev. Jeremiah "damning America" Wright --and his "bitter half" Michelle --who mouthed her disdain for flag respect at the 9/11 ceremony a year ago --and the socialist, over-paid Chicago gal --what's her name --Valerie Jarett --who hangs around in the family quarters with them --along with Reggie Love (now resigned) --his gay trainer who claimed to "wake up the pres. every am." Where was the wife, inquiring minds wondered?
 Don't look at what the candidates say in interviews trying to show that they are " just folks like us"  as much as their record.   Romney balanced the state budget 4 years in a row in Mass as their gov. Obama has added 1/3 of our total national debt since Go. Washington in his 3 years of serving. And seems not to know the relationship between deficit and debt. 

Romney ran a company that now holds the pension plans of state service and teacher retirement unions because of  bain's good return on investments. He gave start-up money to many successful companies that provided many jobs.
 What has Obama done?????????? His claim to fame, death of Osama, would've been accomplished no matter who was president --because the special ops people did it and have been working on finding that guy since 9/11. The tragedy is that the MD who helped us find him is in Pakistan jail for 33 years --how did our admin. let that happen? leaks. And why can't we get the guy out. He did what Pakistan claimed THEY were helping us do --find Osama. We should sanction Pakistan if they don't give us the doctor.
I might add here that  foreign policy springs from one's world view, intelligence, and others in the leadership team who are experts in international relations.   Obama's policy, as he would "state it"  which Blogger above wants Romney to do --has not been successful. I don't think we understand the obama policy --except to say he does apologize for our problems with and treatment of  Islamists/terrorists.  And yet they hate him, too --burning him in effigy. 
Can anyone's policy be viewed as wholly successful in this world climate?  I don't know.  But for sure, we need to get our economic house in order and Obama is going in the wrong direction.   Romney/Ryan are the business/math minds together.  I don't want them to know EXACTLY what they would do right now --simple solutions, fast solutions, are subject to the realities of the office and the world.   But Obama has had some time to work on this --and he has failed utterly.

Obama's Speech Should've Included....

 I thought it was the same old faces with the same old empty, no solutions, emotional-hype- rhetoric. But the GOP convention included new people, up and comers, great speeches. and stuff about Romney I didn't know --but was glad to hear. And I thought he spoke forcefully and eloquently --not like a whiney Polosi and a halting Obama.

Look at Barack's speech: empty platitudes and stale promises. He says things like, "We can" "We're in this together! I have faith in the American people. I believe in you --We must improve.  We need jobs.  (yup)  Better, cheaper education for all --take care of the less fortunate --penalize the fortunate --be patient with me --give me another 4 years to do what i've been doing." 

Many generalities that any student body president could think of and say --things we generally agree about --except raising taxes.

Speech should've included: "I've invested the People's money in off shore drilling in So. America and blocked it in No. america. I say we must become energy independent while making it impossible because I block anything that isn't green enough for me.

I talk about keeping jobs here --while not raising a squeak when GM (who still owes us 25 billion) took Volt manufacture to China. 

I support Israel --barely--while giving our money to Palestine whose radicals get ahold of it. 

I promised transparency and blocked C Span from health deliberations. I shun lobbyists while meeting them across the street in a restaurant and off calendar."

 "I don't know what in heck to do, to tell you the truth! I've never had a real job. This is my first time to be head of anything, after all. But be patient --I'll get it figured out.' Just keep that teleprompter where I can see it! So I can lead my cheers!" 

BTW --I was against gay marriage before i was for it --and I never saw an abortion I couldn't approve --or an abortion survivor whom the law should protect"

I know he's president --but that's what's amazing, REALLY!
