    From Sunday's Televised "Meet the Press" Senator Obama was asked about his
    stance on the American Flag. Obama Explains National Anthem Stance

    Sun, 07 Sept. 2008 11:48:04 EST, General Bill Ginn' USAF (ret.) asked
    Obama to explain why he doesn't follow protocol when the National Anthem is
    played.

    The General also stated to the Senator 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. At the very least,
    "Stand and Face It"

    Senator Obama Live on Sunday states, "As I've said about the flag,
    I don't want to be perceived as taking sides, Obama said. 'There are a lot of people
    in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression. And the anthem
    itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all. It
    should be swappedfor 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."We
    should consider to reinvent our National Anthem as well as to 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 warring people,
    should conduct ourselves as the nations of Islam, whereas peace prevails. Perhaps a state or
    period of mutual concord between our governments. When I become President, I will seek a pact or
    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. My wife disrespects the Flag for many personal
    reasons. Together she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past, many years
    ago. She has her views and I have mine". Of course now, I have found myself about to
    become the President of the United States and I have put aside my hatred. I will use my
    power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path of hope. My wife and I
    look forward to becoming our Country's First Family. Indeed, CHANGE is about to overwhelm the
    United States of America.


    WHAAAAAAAT the Hell !!!

    Yes, ladies and gentlemen, you heard it right. This could possibly be
    our next President.

    I, for one, am speechless.

    Unfotunately this is not a true bit of information. This allegation has been around for some time, but never happened. It was a satire item written some time ago and a General Ginn never talked to Obama on "Meet the Press." There are enough questionable areas on Obama, and false stories like this just help him, and will do nothing to keep "the one" (sarcasm) out of the White House. We need to make more people aware of real issues like William Ayers, the Reverend Wright and ACORN instead of false stories.

    Is this really true? If so, it is the most disrespectful thing I have heard
    EVER.

    I want and need my President to salute the flag and respect our National Anthem for the many souls that have died for it. This is just not right and scares me silly.

    No Janet, as much as I hate the thought of this guy becoming pres, the spoof article described is not a true story.

    He doesn't put his hand over his heart because, IT NEVER ENTERED HIS MIND.

    Sorry folks, it's just that simple. No hidden agenda, no statement to make, IT JUST NEVER ENTERED HIS MIND. He never gave it even a passing thought.

    You can bet the other three people do it out of respect, maybe even habit. You have to do something over and over again to have it become a habit. He doesn't.

    The same goes for the respect. He doesn't.

    Someone should pound a flag up his ass and see how he likes it ... I'm not talking about an American flag but a flag from Iraq or Iran that way he can wear his true colors ... WPT ... (YAC) ...
