Obama still can’t salute the flag

Remember this photo from September 2007 at a fish fry in Iowa where President Photo Opbama didn’t put his hand over his heart during the national anthem?

Obama Flag 2007

After this picture hit the internet, he made sure to show in all his photo ops that he respected what the flag and the national anthem stood for by putting his hand over his heart. However, now that he is CIC he has forgotten to show respect to the country he was elected to govern by his employers – the citizens of the USA. Isn’t it sad that he is surrounded by the military and still doesn’t salute when they do.

    The reason President Obama is not saluting in the photo is because at the moment the photo in question was taken, the US Air Force band was playing “Hail to the Chief” — so, if Obama had saluted at that moment, he would have been saluting himself!

    The CSPAN video is proof. Skip to the 11:30 mark and you’ll see that what I’m saying is correct.


    By the way, the photo in question was taken at Arlington National Cemetery on 25 May 2009, not at Ft. Hood, Texas, on 11 November 2009, as some claim.

    I find it very interesting that with all that Obamacorn has done that I have posted about. I get responses on a post about Obama not saluting the flag. While they are nitpicking the date of videos, they miss the bigger picture. As Commander in Chief, over the military, he has in the past not saluted the flag, for which many lives have been lost. These lives are the ones that allowed him to be elected Commander in Chief. These are the men and women who stood for our freedom and protect our freedom. Show me examples of when he has saluted the flag to show respect to what this country stands for.
