Why won't Obama wear an American flag pin?

Why won't he place his hand over his heart to say the pledge or sing the national anthem? If he is running for President, why wouldn't he want to show patriotism?

  • Actually, wearing the flag is traditionally considered in bad taste. The flag is only to be used as a flag flying in a proper manner. And as far as putting his hand over the heart, i don't think it is necessary...was a tradition that is not official.

  • You don't have to put your hand over your heat, is just looks good but you can have just as much patriotism without that hand there. And, wearing a flag pin really has nothing to do with his issues. No, I am not voting for him but, imo, these two issues are petty.

  • George Bush wears a flag pin all the time and he and Dick Cheney are about as ANTI-AMERICAN as they come. Sending our citizens over to fight a war that we shouldn't be fighting? Yeah...that's American.

    because ignorant bigots are extremely irresponsible and will continue to spread lies in order to scare people into voting republican.
