Patriotism does not mean contempt for traditions
Barack Obama is no patriot. Liberals apparently love coming up with new definitions of words.
The picture above was taken during the national anthem. This is not presidential behavior. For Democrats to even be considering this man as a potential candidate for the presidency is a disgrace. Not only does he refuse to wear the American flag, he apparently refuses to salute it.
During rendition of the national anthem when the flag is displayed, all present except those in uniform should stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Men not in uniform should remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart. — United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171
Update: Video footage proves he was not early lowering his hand or late raising it. Maybe it was an honest mistake and not deliberate contempt for tradition, but either way, he is not presidential material.
