I hate it when someone refuses to NO T. It just holds the whole damned line up.

Well, at least it looks like the photo and narrative came from an unbiased source.

I stand in awe of the criteria for being Commander in Chief implied by the statement above. No wonder we have stepped in shit up to our chins in Iraq, and we are being stymied in Afghanistan, and have yet to find Ossamma. But the Commander in Chief spews the pledge of allegiance at the drop of a hat, with his hand on his heart, so we know he is qualified....

By the way, did Obama tell us he wouldn't say the pledge of allegiance, or put his hand on his heart? Did someone ask him to and then did he refuse?

Yeah, I thought so. Jim

I think you are batting 1.000 on this one. Seems you slid a salty grating over the thin skins of your Bizzaro-Fans from Bizzaro World, and they all started squealing. Kind of like those vegetables Zappa was talking about that will respond to you if all you do is call them. Jim

To me, it reads like a simple piece of racism sent by some folks who want to keep the White House, just that.

I think the old saw, "The Devil is in the details." applies to this situation. Given the sacrifices that have been made by both the military and civilians alike in the relatively brief history of the United States, a measure of respect is not too much to show to a nation that permits the freedoms (that's another thread) that we enjoy that were earned though those sacrifices. The people in that photo are not pledging allegiance to the current President or the Boston Red Sox. It is the Pledge of Allegiance to the United States of America.

If a person cannot face the people they wish to lead in the highest public office of the nation and repeat that pledge in the proper manner (hand over heart if not in uniform) in a wholly appropriate situation (an event to recognize some of the leading candidates for that office), it is only fair to question just where their allegiance lies.

That said...

Give the poor barstard a break; he honestly doesn't know where the heart is, anatomically speaking.

Yep, his bowls are in his chest and the rectum, anal canal and anus extend to his mouth. That's why he talks shit!
