Lack of Patriotic upbringing evident in Obama and wife's behavior.

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: Do you really know America?

Not our Red White and Blue Flag of the United States of America, but many red flags are obvious when I witness with my own eyes Obama being unconcerned and aloof about the meaning of our Flag, and flag pendants. He is disresectful with his lack of understanding about our rituals honoring our country, and our flag. It is so disgusting that he " forgot" that our Pledge of Allegiance is a practice of our public school system, It was pitiful Watching him try to squirm out of it by saying " oh , Oh, well I guess we could do that". what an awful message to those grade school children, about a possible future president. And if these are not enough red flags to attract your attention, how about his wife stating publically at his nomination speech :" This is the first time I have ever in my adult life that I have ever been proud to be an American". This is so Arrogant! from them both!

HOPE? I hope that our country picks someone that KNOWS how to HONOR all of the men and women that have died for this country. That pays respect to our Flag and the Pledge of Allegiance and the cultural practices that stand for the FREEDOM. If a possible presidential candidate cannot even do that, Then I guess all we DO HAVE is a RED FLAG!
