    Can't vouch for this, first I have seen it. Rick Barker

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Yes, he told us in advance what he planned to do. Few were listening.

    The following is a narrative taken from a 2008 Sunday morning televised "Meet The Press."

    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".

    NOW GET THIS !!

    '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 of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of waring 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."


    "Of course now, I have found myself about to become the President of the United States and I have put my hatred aside. I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path. My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country's First black Family. Indeed, CHANGE is about to overwhelm the United States of America."



    WHAAAAAAAT,is that??? Yes, you read it right.

    I, for one, am speechless!!!

    Sad but true the blind don't or didn't listen to what comes out of his mouth. He has told everyone his beliefs but the libs must agree as it dosen't seem to bother them.

    To me he is a traitor and should be tried as such.

    Joe with all due respect to you sir I wouldn't believe Snopes if they said Night is dark and day is light.

    At least from some of the things they have said were true that were not. Also from some of the the things they said were false when I know were true. In no less than two instances I saw the programs and tapes they said didn't happen. That is JMO

    Just seems funny to me that if there is nothing to hide, why are there no videos of that program?????

    There are a number of sites other than FOX.com to check stories or quotes for accuracy.

    All they have to do today to get vote is dance a carrot in the voters face and they got them. It doesn't take much to fool people today. Sad.

    Well, I do hate Obama, I won't deny that. To borrow a phrase I heard Democrats say about Bush. "He's not my President!"

    The Liberals were never shy about making up stories about Bush.

    I have no affection for the supposed leader of the free world that uses class warfare to incite the American People take from the haves and and give to the have nots.

    I do not watch Meet The Depressed.

    I was hoping someone might have seen it or knew it was true or not true.

    Do I regret posting it? No.

    Could I have taken the time to check it out? Yes, but felt rather lazy and hurried. I figured someone would.

    So, SUE ME!

    We are a nation divided. I didn't start it.

    What I'd like to know is why didn't Hillary use this against him. I would like to have seen her walk over to him and slap his anti-patriotic face and tell him what a worthless P.O.S he is!

    Blade, let's make sure we are on the same page. I don't believe that anyone on here does not respect the office of the Presidency. It is the person occupying it that we don not like or respect. The majority of us are Patriotic and don't like seeing our Country being flushed down the toilet by a piece of shxx named Obama. Bulge.

    I am with Rick Barker and Barrelbudge on this one, 100%. You liberals out there that don’t like it need to find your own site to espouse your BS on. Some things are still sacred, and the American Flag is damn sure one of them.
