I cringed when I heard John Neuman state, unchallenged, the already-debunked-as-untrue smears of Sen. Obama that have been circulated via email by right wing groups. It is absolutely incorrect that Sen. Obama does not believe in saying the pledge of allegiance or singing the star spangled banner. He does both. He has supported legislation that children say the pledge of allegiance in school. He has co-authored and passed significant legislation vis-a-vis Campaign finance reform, earmarks and government transparency, as well as non-proliferation. Neuman implies that Obama is not patriotic, but he clearly has never heard Obama speak about his own patriotism which is profound.
