Tribute to the flag

The pregame tribute with Johnny Cash speaking his own words and President Barrack Obama awarding the medal to the soldier certainly had to make Twitler and GOP pee on themselves. Certainly looked to me to be a dig at the recent criminal Antibes of GOP. The ragged old flag, currently being torn and ripped like rarely before.

I was a sailor, not ashamed to be called a soldier. I must have missed the PC notice from my veteran brothers and sisters. Sorry to offend my closest military branch, Marines.

I’m not a huge flag sentimentalist but it was sweet and I loved seeing Obama giving that vet the medal.

The most disrespectful thing ever done to the flag is this pig and his GOP traitorous pricks and prick-ets wearing one on their lapels. Makes me vomit. You know what John Prine said, "your flagged lapel won't get ya, into heaven anymore". Well, you know, not exactly but the current display of the flag fits. Bet John would approve of the slight change.

But I think there was something in there for everyone, and the wingnuts probably have their own favorite bits - they walked the line putting that together...

Was when they said the honor was presented to the marine by the President, and as the camera moved up, it was Mr. President Barrack Obama. No mention of Twitler anywhere in it. Hope he chocked on his 3rd cheese Berder.

The video I find does not have a shot of President Obama.

Someone please post a link.
