Last week there was on Fox News a subject about a teacher in a public school who didn't want to say the pledge of allegiance. She got in trouble and some legal advisers stated that since she was in a government placed area she has to do what is required from her and that is the pledge of allegiance. So IMO Obama as he is running for the presidency and the highest job in the government, should also do whatever it take to show he is ready as the top leader in a governement job, which he clearly shows, is NOT!!!

Since when was wearing a flag pin required? Honestly, to think such is just creepy and does not reflect the sort of free-thinking values that America was founded on.

Ah, ok. I get it - you want to live in a place where at a certain time of day, you are required, by law, to say a certain thing, in unison with a bunch of other people. And a place where you are required to wear certain clothing, or in this case ornamentation, else face public ostracization?

Hmmm.. maybe you should try:
Saudi Arabia
Iran
Yemen

Maybe they are a little more your speed...

Ridiculous I've seen him wear the flag pin before. I have also noticed that Clinton and McCain don't always were them either. Why know question them? How old are you? That's like me saying I don't like JM because he is too old. Or I don't like Hillary because she doesn't wear a flag pin. Get Real.
