why didnt the president have a memorial day service?

Doesn't he understand that he is the president of the united states of America? He may not like us and they might think our anthem if violent and our flag is a sign of oppresion, but he is still our leader, why did we allow someone who hates us so much to get into office?

  • WAS NO ONE LISTENING TO THIS PERSON???
    APPARENTLY NOT!!!


    The following is a narrative taken from a 2008 Sunday morning
    televised "Meet The Press'. The author (Dale Lindsborg) is
    employed by none other than the very liberal Washington Post!!



    From Sunday's 07 Sept. 2008 11:48:04 EST, Televised "Meet the

    Press" THE THEN Senator Obama was asked about his stance on the
    American Flag.


    General Bill Ginn' USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain WHY he
    doesn't follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.

    The General stated to Obama 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. Or, at the very least,
    Stand and Face It

  • Senator Obama replied:

    "As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as
    taking sides". "There are a lot of people in the world to whom the

    American flag is a symbol of oppression.." "The anthem itself

    conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air
    and all that sort of thing."



    (ARE YOU READY FOR THIS???)

    Obama continued: "The National Anthem 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. In my opinion, we should consider reinventing
    our National Anthem

    > as well as 'redesign' our Flag to better offer our enemies hope
    and love.

  • > It's my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level o
    acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of
    warring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where
    peace prevails - - - perhaps a state or period of mutual accord
    could exist between our governments ."


    > When I become President, I will seek a pact of 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

    > which is WHY my wife disrespects the Flag and she and I have
    attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past".

  • Well I tell ya what. I am sick to death of people thinking that this nation is for Christians only. You are just pissed that your religion is being put in its place and will no longer be allowed to run this country. Get over it.

  • Im surprised this question is still on when mine of similar tone get removed.

    I am pretty confidant to say that being that Obama was raised by his grandparents, and his grandfather was a VETeran, that just as I am very aware and concerned and proud of my grandfather, that he must be too. Despite one's lack of being "gun toting, war raging NEO-CONSERVATIVE, there are many Americans as myself, who love this nation and our warriors and their service past and present.
