Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama spent a Missouri Monday defending his patriotism, in light of recent attacks.
“At certain times over the last 16 months, I have found, for the first time, my patriotism challenged — at times as a result of my own carelessness, more often as a result of the desire by some to score political points and raise fears and doubts about who I am and what I stand for.”
Obama has taken a decent bit of rapping on his patriotism in general, stemming from an incident where he didn’t wear a flag pin, as well as from allegations that he doesn’t say the pledge of allegiance.
No flag pin?! RELEASE THE FUCKING HOUNDS!
