Barack Obama will be wearing his patriotism on his sleeve … and his jacket lapel today. The Democrat is expected to deliver a major speech addressing the issue of patriotism in Independence, Mo.The man isn't just a cold blooded political reptile, he is a chameleon. What next? Yankee Doodle Barry?
The speech comes as Obama tries to squelch criticism that he and his wife, Michelle, are unpatriotic. Last week the campaign launched its first TV ad touting the candidate’s “heartland values.” The ad will air in several Republican states.
Here's a quote from his speech: "Patriotism is supporting your country all the time." Not only has Barack Obama failed miserably on this count, but he lifted the phrase from Mark Twain: “Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it.” I hate it when foreigners quote Mark Twain.
Heartland Notebook: "He [Barack Obama]sees no need to engage in silly ritualistic trappings like the gesture of placing his hand over his heart during the National Anthem or revering the flag; after all, what do those things have to do with creating Utopia?"
Well, maybe Barry can be patriotic on or near the Fourth of July, IF it helps him get elected, SO he can then force Utopia upon us rubes and hicks that feel patriotic all day every day.
I'm going to out to the shed where there's no TV or radio and cling to my Bible and guns.
