Hat tip to One Old Veteran blog.

On September 11, 2011 during the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attack ceremony in New York the director of the C-SPAN telecast took a shot of President Obama and First Lady Michele Obama while the World Trade Center American flag that survived the attack was being folded by local police and fire fighters.

Watch the below video as they look on. When the folding of the flag is almost finished read Michelle Obama's lips as she leans over to President Obama and says “ALL THIS FOR A FLAG”. She then shakes her head from side to side in disapproval while President Obama nods his approval of her statement.

Yes, Mr. President and Mrs. First Lady, all of this is for a flag, the symbol of freedom and liberty. The flag we Americans pledge allegiance to. The flag of Betsy Ross, the American Flag. For you see it is the soldier who allows you to denigrate our flag at the hallowed ground where the World Trade Center once stood. Perhaps the final paragraph of this ode to our solders will remind you and your husband, the Commander in Chief:

It is the Soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the Soldier, not the poet,
Who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer,
Who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.

It is the Soldier, not the lawyer,
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the Soldier, who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protestor to burn the flag.

Mitchell, We need to attract more and more Veterans and patriotic people to make that Rash I spoke of continue to Itch their backsides. I won't quit there is no quit in my vocabulary as we were all taught that when we served our Nation. We shall sound the Alarm and Win in the End because we shall fulfill our "Oaths" right????? After all they don't respect our "Constitution" so what makes anyone think that they respect the Bible they placed their hand on for that "Oath" huh???? You can always count on me my fellow Patriot!

From One Old Vet to the other Old Vet and my many re- enforcement Comrades on this group and other such sites. Take up Our positions and Hold them for we are the Tsunami the Progressive Liberals do not like . How Dare they be so disrespectful, condescending, arrogant and dishonest to the bulk of Legal American Citizens who work so hard for the American Dream and keep it alive for our next generation to come. I myself will continue to be The Rash up their backside that will itch them until we meet on the Field of the Election Battle for our Win will be forth coming. Their days are Numbered because God loving Democrats , Republicans and Independents will make sure of it just like they did at the end of 2010. Class warfare is not going to work as we all know from leaning Economy 101 how else do we create jobs! This Administration has no clue for all they do is add regulations and keep the moratorium in place to Choke us to Death! These people are pure and simple morons. Academic  Lawyers have no knowledge in the Private Sector.

God Bless this nation and those who love and respect her.  We need to pray for God's blessings on us as the powers that be in our capital are working against us right now.

Looks like Obama may have signed our rights away by signing the Kyoto Treaty by Executive Order - this has to be questioned by the Senate - if you have Republican Senators - Howard Dean is laughing at them for not being aware of this -- make sure they look into it

We need to make sure that we personally meet and talk with each and every candidate from our respective areas both congressional and senate.  We also need to do the same this with our state & local leadership also as they are almost as whacked out as they are at the national level.


What they say about the constitution and our nation along with your intuition will tell you whom you should vote for.

As a followup:

I don't know whether M.Obama said what is alluded to or not; I'm not a lip reader.  It does 'seem' to be as the original author stated.

There is a YOUTUBE video of this that may be better quality than what I have on oneoldvet.com.

Check Out: http://youtu.be/odncXZnJ_CM.

Regardless, I'll never forget the saying that the election of Obama made her finally proud of America. I think that speaks volumes about how they both really feel about America.
