    Unhappy Our Next President? about our Flag and Country

    Hold on ...

    The following is a narrative taken from Sunday Morning's televised 'Meet The
    Press'. And the author is employed by none other than the Washington Post!!
    Yeah......the Washington Post of New York and Los Angeles Times fame!! Must say
    that I'm duely impressed..................

    From Sunday's Televised 'Meet the Press' Senator Obama was asked about his
    stance on the American Flag. Obama explains his 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 stated,

    "'As I've said about the flag pin, 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 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.'

    '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 could
    exist 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.'"


    Yes, ladies and gentlemen, you heard it right. This could possibly be our next
    President. I, for one, am speechless.

    Obama certainly could have said it, but he didn't. That reporter doesn't even work for the Post. Sorry.

    Check Snopes. It's a hoax. No truth in it at all.
