So I'm sure you've heard about the Barak Hussein Obama lapel-pin hurly-burly. Like everybody else after 9/11, he wore a flag lapel pin. But recently he took it off purposefully to make a point...
WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama says he doesn't wear an American flag lapel pin because it has become a substitute for "true patriotism" since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
Asked about it Wednesday in an interview with KCRG-TV in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the Illinois senator said he stopped wearing the pin shortly after the attacks and instead hoped to show his patriotism by explaining his ideas to citizens.
I don't think a person has to wear a pin on his coat to prove his patriotism, but a candidate for president who removes it for a specific reason probably should explain himself to the people. Especially given the fact that many democrats support our enemies over America.
What do you think? Is it a valid question? Should Obama be quizzed about the pin or is it just much ado about nothing?
