On Monday, Senator Obama gave a "patriotism speech". Klaus Marre in The
us the good
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama on Monday, in a major speech on patriotism, criticized MoveOn.org for referring to Gen. David Petraeus as General Betray Us last year.
And (phony-wise) the even better news:Obama did not vote last year when the Senate approved a measure condemning the controversial Petraeus ad.

Also from the speech:
I remember, when living for four years in Indonesia as a child, listening to my mother reading me the first lines of the Declaration of Independence - "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.…"
"When in the Course of human events"—thrown under the bus! Seriously, it's a pretty good speech; but I agree with Mr. Hoy: if any Republican had made that goof, it would have been Daily Show fodder for weeks.
For the speech, Obama's flag lapel pin was:
ON"You know, the truth is that right after 9/11, I had a pin," Obama said. "Shortly after 9/11, particularly because as we're talking about the Iraq War, that became a substitute for I think true patriotism, which is speaking out on issues that are of importance to our national security, I decided I won't wear that pin on my chest."
Apparently, Obama is now fine with substitutes for true patriotism.
York also notes a Washington Post story that classifies as a "false rumor" the entirely accurate claim that Obama (previously) disdained wearing a pin. Because, you see, Obama has always worn the pin, and we've always been at war with Eastasia.
Obama's speech was given in Independence, Missouri; it followed
stuntappearance with Hillary Clinton in tiny Unity, New Hampshire. Hm… Oh, I get it! So:
Will he give a major speech on trade in Commerce,
Texas? Or will that be held in Protection,
For his anti-terrorism policy speech: Security,
Colorado, or Liberty, Mississippi?
Drug policy speech: in High
Springs, Florida or play it safe in
Same-sex marriages: There's Gay Cove,
Maine, not that there's anything wrong with that! But Straight Creek, Ohio is also available.
For a tax policy speech, there are many choices: Fleece,
North Dakota; Soakem Mountain,
Montana; or perhaps Gouge
Eye, Nevada. I assume Relief,
Kentucky is not an option, let alone Big Cut,
- Will he give a major speech on trade in Commerce, Texas? Or will that be held in Protection, Kansas instead?
