    This a hoax about President Obama, the Flag and a Meet the Press program on Sept 7, 2008. The email about disrespecting the US flag that attributed absurd dialogue to President Obama was fiction. You won't find it in the transcripts from that show. There was never any truth in it. When people knowingly label satire or lies as the truth, or forward emails without checking them out for themselves, it creates this type of problem. Congratulations to you for checking things out.

    The transcripts are available for Meet the Press on that date, but Barack Obama was not there. The guests were Joe Biden and Tom Friedman, and the word Flag never appeared that day. You can get the transcript from the link in the related links section below. You can also find a link to the transcript for the DECEMBER 2008 Meet the Press when Barack Obama was a guest, but the word Flag was again not mentioned.

    There are also videos on YouTube for Meet the Press for September 2008 when Pres. Obama was not on the show, and for Meet the Press for December 2008 when Barack Obama was on the show, but never mentioned the flag. At YouTube you can enter in the search box, "Obama Meet the Press 2008 December" and again for September.

    You are probably asking this question because you saw an email that started as a piece of satire, not truth (i.e., similar to a joke on the show "Saturday Night Live"). It was written by John Semmens in 2007 in his Arizona Conservative Blog which he labels "semi-news, a satirical review of the events shaping our nation and the world" Semmens made up all the dialogue. You used to be able to get it from his blog, but now his archives only go back to 2009. Someone took it from his column, expanded the satire, wrapped it in a lie, and started forwarding it as if it were an email of truth. One version of the FALSE email from 2008 is below, there are also later modified versions:

    **cker never took 2 minutes to acknowledge our men that died on D-Day, too busy campaigning. One of his elves put a teeny lil tweet out and that was it.

    I wouldn't pee in his mouth if his tonsils were on fire.

    Obo is typical of the radical vocal minority in the Democrat Party. I don't think that all or even most Dems think that way. However, the Party has been taken prisoner by a radical yet powerful minority. Pelosi, Read, Schultz, Emmanuel are just a few. They have the support and full attention of the media which will do anything to fill the 24 hr. news cycle and to advance radicalism in America. The "liberal" press is thus the real enemy.

    The Dems should be ashamed of allowing their Party to fall in to such hands and I believe that Dems like Bill Clinton are. As the opposition, we should not hate all Dems but acknowledge that the pendulum in the Democratric Party has swung too far left. It will move back towards the cfenter once they find that it is a losing strategy.

    Let's assure that happend in November!

    OK, yakiman, you can watch this and tell me who is the skilful actor filling in for Obama?

    The country has been in the hands of the America haters for 3 years and still people like you are so bloated with Kool-Aid you can't see the truth.

    Sheesh.
