Election 2008: No Respect for the Flag THEN
Obama in 2010 at Truman Center
Election 2012: NO Respect for the Flag NOW
Are you SURE this man should be the President of the United States?
Citizens hold their hands over their heart, or military in civilian uniform (with option to salute as Ronald Reagan did), OR if in uniform the standard salute as the three gentlemen in the picture above are doing.
The President of the United States is not just the leader of the nation of people, but a Commander-in-Chief of Armed Forces. He has failed in both areas. A person who has never served in the armed forces can certainly be a good national leader - but he must also give respect and earn respect. He also has failed in that area, embarrassing our nation several times. He will not show proper respect for our flag and traditions, but certainly will bow to an Arab king demeaning his station as a national leader.
If Americans allow this man to renew his membership as the President of the United States they deserve whatever happens. The problem is, true, patriotic Americans will suffer with them as well as the innocent who were not old enough to vote.
