What do you do when the national anthem plays? If you're like most Americans you stand with your hand over your heart. This posture says a few things about a person...they're American, they love their country, and most think that it also honors those who have fallen protecting our liberties. You might think that a U.S. Senator like Barack Obama would understand this about the national anthem. You might think that a U.S. Senator like Barack Obama would appreciate all of this more than most people because he's seen the power of the people elect him to office and privilege. I can pretty much guarantee that the soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines understand why we do what we do during the national anthem.
Personally, I don't think that Barack Obama understands how he should behave and is expected to behave during the national anthem. If he doesn't understand something like that which is so simple then he doesn't deserve to lead this country. Further, I doubt that with this kind of un-patriotic behavior he would have much support by the military as Commander-In-Chief.
