Obama says he no longer wears a AMERICAN FLAG on his lapel. He feels that he is prepared to be Commander-in-Chief. Would he say that a service person does not need to wear any ribbons showing thier TOUR of DUTY in order to show PATRIOTIC SERVICE to THEIR country?

No one needs to wear anything. Who cares? I think the Nazis lived in Germany.

Are you purposely misunderstanding his entire statement for NOT wearing that lapel pin because your Republican?

Don't you just hate it when people answer a question with a question?

Often those who delight in placing labels on themselves are among the farthest away from living up to those labels.

"I'm a uniter" ring a bell?

Well, my husband is in the Navy and he rarely wears his ribbons. In fact, he only wears them when he absolutely has to. I dare you to insult him.

Let me lay it out for you. If you aren't patriotic, you won't protect America and you won't support our troops. Instead, you'll send them unprepared into a war that is about division instead of uniting. When we finally leave, we'll just have to go back again when the Serbs declare their Independence. And you thought I was talking about Iraq.

The whole patriotic schtick is a favortite of the Republicans.

Serbs are already independent. They're ticked that Kosovo declared it's independence.
