(other than the obvious) Notice anything wrong with this picture encaptioned “Respect: Senator Barack Obama, Governor Bill Richardson, Senator Hillary Clinton and Ruth Harkin stand during the national anthem.”? Also wondering what Bill Richardson is lookin’ at…but Just as Obama gets the endorsement of the best and most qualified governor in the world…Mr. Deval Patrick (of course)…he pulls this nonsense, further sinking his campaign. Had he not stopped wearing the U.S. flag lapel pin, I’d at least try to give him the benefit of the doubt on this one….but damn, Barack, that’s just amateur/petty and sends the wrong message to our fine military.
This man thinks he’s fit to be the Commander in Chief of the military where they revere national symbols to the punishable extreme? Not if he treats those symbols in this manner…..might as well have gotten it over with and burned a flag right there as it sends the military and those civilians that do care about natinal symbols more than the rest…the same messge.
I won’t get into the feel-good non-binding non-punishable federal law he’s breaking…..or my assumptions as to why Deval Patrick endorsed Obama.
