In a limp attempt to discredit Barack Obama's patriotism, Bush-baby Karl Rove is trying to revive the whole "Obama isn't wearing a flag pin" controversy from 2001.
Sen. Obama had a perfectly logical and reasonable explanation: "After a while, you start noticing people wearing the lapel pin but not acting very patriotic,” he said then. “My attitude is that I'm less concerned with what you're wearing on your lapel than what's in your heart. You show your patriotism by how you treat your fellow Americans, especially those ones who serve."
Since then, Sen. Obama has more than demonstrated that he is both patriotic and capable and loves and cares for this country. This is merely Karl Rove's backended way of putting himself back in the spotlight and giving McCain a much-needed push in the only area where he seems to have any chance of making waves: his service to the country.
Good try, Mr. Rove. But we're not buying what you're trying to sell!
Oh, by the way... Sen. Obama received an endorsement yesterday from Former Indiana Rep. Lee Hamilton. Who's he? He was chairman of the Foreign Affairs and Intelligence committees, AND was vice chairman of the Sept. 11 commission. Patriotic enough?
