Obama Hand Over Heart Controversy

I received an email today about the whole Pledge of Allegiance controversy and Obama. I find these silly but thought I would investigate more on this issue and found some interesting things. Just another NON-ISSUE distraction like the flag pin.

Here is a photo of Obama WITH his hand over his heart.














Here is a photo of Dubya Bush with his hand over his ???stomach????....
















Here is the original video. It was the National Anthem and not the Pledge as many emails and sites claim. Maybe this doesn't make things "better" for some folks but it does create clarity. Protocol for the National Anthem does say that "the hand must be over the heart" but personally I don't do it every time. I guess Obama should have done it but the email suggests the following "oh......and then you have this clown, who refuses to place his hand on his heart and say the pledge......" Geez....REALLY? CLOWN? Oh my...

President Bush had injured his right arm when he had an accident on his mountain bike. He could not raise his right arm any highter then he had it. This not only proves that liberals are mean sprited but that they are also very misinformed!
