I used to watch TV news and yell at the box. Now I jump up from the couch, sit at the computer and begin to type laughing maniacally saying "Wait until they read this." It's more fun than squashing tadpoles

Obama Does Not Put hand Over Heart During Anthem

I saw a report about this on Fox Morning News but I have yet to find any other report other than this nor seen the video since I get a "temporarily unavailable" message when I click on it.

Barrack Obama was standing with other candidates for president while the National anthem was being played. All had their hands over their hearts except Obama. I have been to many events where the anthem has been played and have been distressed at the number of people who neglect this simple protocol. One is supposed to salute the flag while the anthem is played. For a presidential candidate to neglect do so is double distressing. One would think after the flap over his removing his flag pin that this would be something he would not forget to do. He said the pin was unnecessary to demonstrate his patriotism. In my opinion by not saluting the National Anthem he has said enough about the subject.

In his defense the singer was so truly horrible that one could make the case that he did not know she was singing the National Anthem.

Update: Got a good link to the video here.

Muslims Against Sharia call on Senator Obama to distance himself from al-Qaeda supporters

With the black Islamic flag of war draped behind him, an individual on You Tube that goes by the name Abdul Hakim Khatab has called for people to support Barack Obama for U.S. President in 2008. The video is titled 'Barack Obama 2008 spokenword.' Muslims Against Sharia call on Barack Obama to distance himself from his extremist supporters and to denounce this You Tube video for promoting violence in the name of the Obama for President campaign.
