Barack Obama and the National Anthem
Now, I'm sure that everyone heard about the incident where the national anthem was being sung and Barack Obama refused to put his hand over his heart. Obama was quick to fire back that the photo was taken out of context. I figured it probably was as well since that is what politics is all about - misrepresenting your opponent. Well, tonight, poking around YouTube, I came across a video that looks like hardcore evidence against his statement. It looks pretty clear cut to me. Maybe one is not required to put one's hand over his or her heart during the national anthem, but one looks like a jackass when EVERY other candidate is doing just that. What do you think?
