Obama Won't Wear Flag Pin

Do we really want a president or for that matter a senator who can find a reason not to wear our country's flag? "I decided I won't wear that pin on my chest," Barak Obama said in an interview. "Instead, I'm going to try to tell the American people what I believe will make this country great, and hopefully that will be a testament to my patriotism." Well, it isn't. Your refusal to wear the flag speaks loudly and obscenely.

The flag is a symbol of unity for Americans Mr. Obama, an ideal you obviously eschew. Whatever your political leanings, unless you favor divisiveness, there is no shame in wearing the flag pin. This is political opportunism on your part, a pandering to the fringe radical left in this nation. You have thereby proven yourself unfit to be our president.
