Obama leads the Pledge of Allegiance

Got another e-mail today, alleging that Illinois Sen. Barack Obama refuses to salute the U.S. flag or say the Pledge of Allegiance.

I was surprised to discover that the U.S. Senate has added the pledge to their opening exercises — new from when I staffed the Senate. But, what that means, with C-SPAN televising the proceedings, is that there is video evidence of Sen. Obama leading the pledge, if he does, when he substitutes for the presiding officer (the Vice President) in the Senate.

On June 21, 2007, for example, Obama presided over the Senate. See for yourself.

  1. […] Yeah, well this must be a faked video of Obama leading the US Senate in the pledge of allegiance. Obama leads the Pledge of Allegiance Millard Fillmore’s Bathtub Next? (I should be studying, but you guys make this too easy). Peace, D. __________________ I […]

    Elwood Blues: What kind of music do you usually have here?
    Claire: Oh, we got both kinds. We got Country AND Western.

    I see the guest speaker’s ecumenical prayer covered BOTH kinds of religion – Protestant AND Catholic. I fear if Obama is elected, he may do something un-American and unconstitutional, like replace this solemnizing sectarian religious ritual with a reading from the U.S. Constitution.

    Hey, doesn’t the Bible have an injunction against women chaplains, per Paul’s words?

    1 Timothy 2:11-14 “A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner.”

    And isn’t the Senate violating Jesus’ biblical teachings?

    Matthew 6:5-6
    “And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut they door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.”

    I guess we can add Anti-biblical to the charges of un-American and unconstitutional.

    Whatever happens, I’m sure it can be blamed on Obama.

    Poe’s Law, anyone? Anyone?

    Oh, his saying the pledge is ok, as it is just a smoke screen for the fact that he is a “sleeper” agent for Al Qeada, just like the New Yorker cover says.

    I know all of this because I watch Fox News: “Fair and Balanced”. :)


  4. Well, Obama has no chance now. Once word gets out he recited the pledge and allowed a prayer, no Democrat will vote for him. ;)
