Democrat Presidential Candidate Barack Obama commented earlier today in response to news that over ten thousand unused US Flags were thrown away by the DNC after their recent Convention in Denver.
This is just another example of how disaffected Republicans cling to their guns, flag and religion.
OK, maybe he didn't really say that. But his actions, and the actions of the DNC during their recent Convention (See Redstate's: 'New Game: Where's the Flag') speak louder than words. And yes, respect for the flag matters, especially for whoever is President. They are supposed to be a role model for the rest of the country. And what sort of role model has no respect for the traditions of this country or for the symbols of the US, starting with the US Flag. Senator Obama is fully lacking in this area. Some people think that we should put the flag and pride in our country away. I am not one of those people. Senator Obama claims that he wants to make America proud and great again as in the past. Well in the past, the flag and American traditions featured highly. So what is Obama's vision of a great America? My guess is no sort of America that we have ever seen before and no sort of America that most Americans will want to live in.
