  • It annoys me because I feel like it's disrespectful, but I have to agree with MomOfDagJag, it bothers me more that Obama refused to put his hand on his heart during it. I expect more from our pres.

  • I am a Navy veteran and wife so yes it bothers me very much. It also bothers me when people don't place their hands over their heart. Whether or not you're for or against the war, you're still free. Not showing respect during the National Anthem is unconstitutional. I feel like people are not only disrespecting our country, but also the men and women that are giving their lives to defend it. That's just me though.

  • Yes. I'm annoyed anytime people are talking and shouldn't be. Although I'm sure I've done it myself on occasion.
