    Because Saluting or putting your hand over your heart aren't signs of respect in this country. They're just doing it to do it? and Obama was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Right.

    I agree with you to a point. The fact of the matter was that Japan was running out of fuel, literally. They wouldn't have had any gasoline to fuel any vehicles. They also would have run short of food. The same thing was happening in Germany. The main reason for the Eastern Front was to secure petroleum resources for the Third Reich.

    No, you only see what is in the photograph, and you don't even know if it's been Photoshopped. Don't you think that if the president of the United States stood with his hands over his crotch during the pledge of allegiance, you would have heard about it by now?

    I think that's on his list of 'things not to talk about regarding me'. Like his wife, his kids, his past, and his connections.

    I can tell it's a shoop from the pixels and having seen quite a few shoops in my time.

    If that really happened, you don't think it would be all over Fox?

    Open your eyes, man and the others too.

    It's friggin' weird and everyone knows it.

    Do you watch Faux News?? Probably not...They how do you know they didn't cover it?

    Barack Obama Captured on Tape Not Putting His Hand Over His Heart During The National Anthem - Hannity - FOXNews.com

    Fox & Friends' Doocy reported Obama's "patriotism problems" | Media Matters for America

    Amazing what you'll find in 2 seconds on the damn internet.

    Ah, but in Barry's defense there is this. Take it with a grain of salt as I haven't researched the credibility of the site.

    Barack Obama didn't hold his hand over his heart during the U.S. national anthem - TRUE - De-fact-o.com - Untangling The Web One Fact At A Time


    Oh and this one appears to be the National Anthem. Everyone knows you put your hand over your heart for the National Anthem. (or you salute if you so desire) This clip is from ABC though, does that make a difference?

    No, it's only you who didn't get the word, and you look pretty stupid right now. The American President doesn't need to swing his dick when he meets a foreign leader. He shows respect, and that makes them look smaller. I wouldn't expect you to understand.

    What he's saying is that his "showing of respect" looks like he either 1) doesn't understand the cultures or customs he is entering in to or 2) is a kiss ass or trying to seem...I dunno...almost as if he's for his nation...

    Someone should probably whisper to him that it will all be over in a couple of minutes and to put his hand on his heart so as to reduce the problems for his administration.
