Obama No Flag For Me

100507_obamatext.jpg

Obama says no flag . Wearing an American flag lapel pin is seen as a tradition on the campaign trail. Obama said Thursday that he stopped wearing one shortly after the Sept. 11 attacks, telling reporters at a campaign stop in Iowa that “I probably haven’t worn a flag pin in a very long time. After a while, I noticed people wearing a lapel pin and not acting very patriotic….

“My attitude is that I’m less concerned about what you’re wearing on your lapel than what’s in your heart,” Obama said. “You show your patriotism by how you treat your fellow Americans, especially those who serve. You show your patriotism by being true to our values and ideals. That’s what we have to lead with, is our values and our ideals.”

Clinton wouldn’t comment on Obama’s decision not to wear the pin.
