Skip to comments.Obama Succumbs to Relentless Patriot Pressure and Lowers the Flag

The White House did not lower the flags to half mast... until a woman got on their case and wouldn't let up. The biggest attack on the largest military base, and the America hater in the White House can't see fit to lower flags. He'll run the Chicom flag up the flagpole, but he can't bring himself to respect the righteous men and women who lay down their lives every day so that he can play basketball with Reggie every afternoon.
Here's the story:
Thanks to our embedded Texas patriot in D.C., Anita Ross, the White House agreed to lower their flags to half-mast in honor of the Ft. Hood massacre.
FYI the White House/staff had no intention of lowering the flags in fact, early Friday AM after the closet Muslim terrorist had finished his atrocity against Army warriors, the flags were raised to full staff.
Incensed and incredulous at the POTUS and his staff/subordinates complete disregard and disrespect for the dead, dying, and wounded in Texas flying the Flag at full staff in D.C. was unacceptable to Anita Ross a Patriot from Texas A & M and the mother of a Marine currently serving in Afganistan.
Anita burned up the phone lines in D.C. and in Texas Congressmen/women Governor Perrys office White House all heard from her as she assaulted the arrogance of the clueless bureaucrats who mostly despise our military demanding that honor be shown by lowering the flags.
She was stonewalled, ignored, shunned everywhere but in Texas.
When it became obvious that the Liar-in-Chief and his team were completely ignorant, insensitive and insipid toward the atrocity (not tragedy) at Ft. Hood
When it became obvious that Anita Ross was not going to take no for an answer
When it became obvious that Duty, Honor, Country deserved recognition
When it became obvious that Americans true to the Red/White/Blue demanded half mast honor
The clowns in D.C. lowered the flags
ll registered Democrats hate America and love to see dead US troops...whats the big deal?
How long are we as a nation going to put up with this Muslim in the White House? Surely there is some way to get these traitors out sooner than 2012.
or run the gauntlet? Or a good Roman scourging followed by a salt water washdown?
The pile of pig droppings known as “our president” probably would like to remove the flag altogther. Or should I say, he’d like to replace it with another.
Those are good preliminaries. I’m told that lethal injection is the current military prescription for carrying out the death penalty - too good for this POS.
Obamao agrees with Hasan. It’s as simple as that. Obamao is Hasan, attacking the American infidels.
I am basically speechless
I am basically speechless
Having Islam in our military (and government) is a threat to all of us.
For a crime like this, I don't believe there is such a thing as "cruel and unusual punishment." The same punishment should apply to everyone in the Army who gave this lunatic a pass.
I suspect Joe Lieberman will get to the bottom of this, and I also suspect the heads of some senior Army officers will roll.
I am speechless after reading this...
Anita received a call from someone at the White House around 10:30 AM Friday morning Are you the Mrs. Ross who called about the flags?
She replied, Yes.
Well, the President has ordered the flags flown at half mast we just wanted to let you know. WE NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT IT THANK YOU FOR MAKING US AWARE OF IT!
So now you know THEY NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT IT!!!
This happened last Friday and this is the first that I've heard of it. The media is playing their usual role of covering up the gaffes and outrages of the Obama administration.
