Are you kidding me? Now I truly believe Obama haters will do anything to put their president down. The man gave a press conference on the worst ecological disaster in US history. I'm sorry he didn't fulfill your needs on the decoration.

This is pathetic. I'm sorry, but it is.

The U.S. Flag is just a piece of cloth? You mean like the U.S. Constutution is just a goddamned piece of paper? (Quoting GWB)

You some kind of marxist or something?

While the majority of us are waking up, people like you enjoy living in ignorant bliss with blinders on, in denial. This is just more - very clear - evidence of the regime's intentions, of their plans against the American people.

Looks like the push is on by TBTB toward the endgame. I think because they are in such a hurry to get it done before too many people wake up, they'll get sloppy and make mistakes. All the better.

By the way, I don't know if y'all are stocked up, but my local WalMart has had a LOT of ammo in stock lately. Might be time to get ya some more. I'm not talking to you, XyZeR, I am talking to the rest of the people reading this.

Not having an American flag next to you at a press conference is a plan against the American people?

Not having an American flag at a press conference is a plan by the TPTB?

You're kidding me, right?

And I agree that the American Flag is more then a piece of cloth, but are you seriously believing Obama is a traitor, a Marxist, a Socialist, or anything like that because he didn't have a flag next to him?

Wow!! Really?!? So, you cannot make a positive contribution to rectify what you see wrong in the world and you resort to this? How can you possibly justify your statements?? The US constitution is working pal, like it or not Obama was voted in by the majority of the citizens of the US legally and without contest. What should REALLY concern you was the previous administration being appointed by the Supreme Court... But no, you rant on about Marxism and ammo.

Here's what you do if you want to change things. Get into politics. Either run yourself for office, or support someone who you think will do a good job. Become active in the community and get your point across by HELPING people, not spouting off nonsense and paranoia mixed in with threats.

Like I have stated many times before...flags, National Anthems, and the Fourth of July are not the "symbols" of what makes this Country great. People do not die for decorations.

That is ridiculous.

Defend something that actually matters, like the republic and your natural rights. Not some notion of Nationalist fervor.

Can't have it both ways!

Google Images: Presidential Press Conference and Bush Press Conference. You'll see PLENTY of absent flags. Obama is not the first.

The only FIRST that Obama is is our first black president.

Wrong. You're sourcing a cropped picture of Mount Vernon as your evidence? I'd bet real money that there is an American flag in the vicinity.

Presidential press conferences follow a PROTOCOL that is written down. There are full-time staff members whose job is to make sure protocols are followed. If you think the omission of the US flag was a mistake, you are dead wrong. It was very intentional.

Of course if it gets too much play they'll say it was a goof, which will be a lie.

WRONG AGAIN. Those "symbols" have meaning, and the meaning that is associated with such symbols IS important and IS what makes this country great.

Where do these morons come from??? WHERE???

we have a right to see things differently, and obviously we do.

In the face of adversity, more than ever, you go out of your way to make a positive show of solidarity. You remind the people of where we came from what we have been through and that we too will rise above this. That flag is representative of all of these things to many Americans - it says more with not a word being spoken.

Perhaps He does not see things this way.

I served my country, I lost brothers in arms, and I'm cleaning up this damn spill - I will speak my piece.

Except you're stating that since he doesn't have an American flag next to him at a press conference, he's not a real American.

It's very ludicrous for you to say that...

It's not the end of the world, really it isn't. Did you even pay attention to the speech or were you So concerned about the missing flag? How about you actually...you know listen to the guy instead of playing "I Spy."

ATS is populated by liberals...although it seems ATS is swinging right(must burn you libs up huh?).

They wont out right defend the annointed one(they know its unwise to do so...he is becoming very unpopular)but they will try to switch it around and say "i dont know why this is bad".

Either they really DONT know(which is sad and they are really just ignorant) or they are doing this because hey....the 'right-wing nutjobs' are at it again and 'me' being a left wing person i must put them in there place.


the right wing is renowned for lying, obfuscating, and spinning the truth to their own advantage. They have a whole network that does it!

And it's very much common knowledge that the people who are left extremist are less likely to lie or spout wrong information than a right wing extremist.

for crying out loud, how many of you geniuses still think obama spent millions hiding his identity? and all the other birther lies? r-r-r-r-right wing blogs. pandering to conspiracy theorists to get more votes for whatever BS they're gonna try and get elected.

there's never been a more embarrassing time to lean right than now. this whole thread is proof of grasping at straws

The people who are defending Obama on this thread would probably still defend him if a red flag with a hammer and sickle were behind him at press conferences.

Would you say "Oh, it's just a piece of cloth, it doesn't mean anything."

Really? Do you see the point yet? It DOES mean something. And the fact that it is MISSING means something as well, so it IS A BIG DEAL. It is intentional, it is a carefully crafted image that has a purpose that I am not comfortable with.

This whole county and world is run on symbolism. Symbols do matter. You get more from them than you do words. They speak only in symbols and put them right out there because they think us Americans don't have enough sense to know what they are doing. We are wising up. Just hope it isn't to late...I bet it would have mattered if he would have came out there with a red, black and green flag or a flag with a skull and bones on it.....

Not to derail the thread and this is not a troll post - but did anyone think to check with the hotel in question to see if they had a suitable flag and display tool in their possession in order to use it?

The explanation might be simpler than you think. When I worked for the Sheraton in the Meadowlands I don't recall seeing such an item in our concierge box which was where all the flags were held.

Perhaps POTUS has one in the back of the Beast that they will remember to unpack next time he visits?

oh and hold your breath - an Englishman - me was in charge at that time of flying the flags - shock horror - I even taught a few people there the correct handling of flags - including your own - especially one trick of how to raise a flag and unfurl it without the thing touching the floor - something that had been common practice before I was given the job.

I would suggest you take a step back with regard "Flag Protocol" and take a look at the reality of how this piece of cloth is treated in everyday life - including its made in Taiwan label.

Actually I was riveted to the press conference and the whole issue of the flag went completely unnoticed until this morning when the local Houston DJs were speaking about it.

Now it's intentional? He intentionally didn't have an American flag at the press conference next to him.

Yet he had one on his lapel.

And are you alluding to the fact he's a Communist?

That is a sensible response but even Mayors have representatives who make sure that all the accessories make it to scheduled events. They bring their own. Seals flags etc. Surely this meticulous (every detail matters) President has likewise.

Seriously though - very good observation, thank you for your response

It's yet another piece of evidence that supports that assertion, yes sir.
