I want a patriot

      I want my next President to be proud of his country.  To be a patriot.  To shout it from the rooftops.  Is that too much to ask?

Obama the Patriot - Removes American Flag From His Plane

The Patriot Room Posted on Tuesday, July 22, 2008 8:11:07 AM by Bill Dupray

Barack Obama recently finished a $500,000 total overhaul of his 757. And
as part of the new design, he decided to remove the American flag from the tail...

What American running for President of the United States would
remove the symbol of his country? And worse, he replaced the flag with it with a symbol of himself...

He won't cross his heart when they do the Pledge of Allegiance, He removed the flag from label.  He ignored our soldiers during his last visit. Wounded soldiers who are fighting for our freedom!

The American's Creed

“I believe in the United States of America, as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principals of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.”

“I there fore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.” -William Tyler Page

That was a wrong move wasn't it? I can understand how you feel, doesn't he realise that it'll inflame the people whose votes he wants?! The little girls were so cute! Jeannette xx

Not sticking up for Obama but someone sent me a link to Snopes about this.  He was chartering the airplane from North American Airlines.  The flags were registered trademarks of that airline and had to be removed.  There is a small American flag in the front.  The symbol he is using is still debatable.  We have an office in Landstuhl.  Obama was not permitted in that facility because of the media.  Neither would McCain be permitted.  President Bush would be.  As far as crossing his heart, no excuse for that one.  Chris

I adore your last poster Chris to death ... I do believe I read somewhere about the flag & the plane not being true however, the part about not being able to visit the troops is complete bull hockey. As a senator both Obama & McCain can visit the troops, they just can't bring the media in with them. McCain has visited these troops before ... without the media I might add. Obama IMO is not very patriotic & as a retired military wife I can't support a man who can't support our soldiers. Emmi
