A TALE OF TWO PRESIDENTS UPDATE: AND AN EMBARRASSING FIRST LADY "ALL THIS JUST FOR A FLAG"
Atlas Shrugs ^ | Pamela Geller

Posted on 09/14/2011 6:02:50 AM PDT by expat1000

The caption on the above photo reads: President Obama and former President George W. Bush greet family members of the deceased. Bush read a letter from President Abraham Lincoln (who) wrote to a widow who lost sons in the Civil War: Mary Altaffer/The Associated Press (hat tip Boq)

The picture says it all.

When President Bush spoke at the official ceremonies of the tenth anniversary of the 911 attacks, he was met with applause and warmth from the families. When Obama spoke, there was silence (just as with Mayor Bloomberg). The animus was palpable.

UPDATE: Wait, there's more to turn your stomach.

As members of the NYPD and NYFD were folding our flag that flew over Ground Zero during the time of the attrocities, Our First Lady whispered to Our President "All This For A Flag"? If that weren't bad enough, look at Obama's smirk of consent. (Remark at 34:16 here):

Correction: I Own the World broke this story (Five for fighting figured it out):

Did you see the vid of Michelle? My God, they hate this country.

We need a lip reader to tell us exactly what she said... and Barrack’s smirk. I hate them.

That is genuine grief on President Bush's face.

God Bless that man and the lady he is comforting....

"ALL THIS JUST FOR A FLAG"

The wookie and those of her ilk think that taking a few minutes to respect the American flag is a waste of time, but will invest weeks or months demonstrating, protesting and suing should somebody have the temerity to display a Confederate Battle Flag at an historical site.

I have no love for the Wookie, and I do not have lipreading skills, but it really does not look to me like that is what she is saying.

If you look down at the comments, a person who is hard of hearing who claims to be a good lib reader says that she said, "All this for a f***ing flag".

I think that person is correct.

Look at it again.

Report this incident to the authorities. They’re looking for unpatriotic conduct.

IT really doesn't matter WHAT she's saying. what matters is the complete and utter contempt and disdain her facial gestures show.

lol watch out or you might get posted on the new fight the smears watchdog website.

Honestly, we can’t be 100% that’s what Michelle said, but it wouldnt surprise. more important than the words is the look of disdain.

tho she does kinda always have that look.

I can’t believe how stupid these two are. Even if you have such hatred for our flag, wouldn’t you think Michelle would be smart enough NOT to mention it with all the cameras around? This administration has got to GO!
It actually does make you sick to your stomach!

No, it’s not possible. Place the entire phrase in quotation marks and you will have only 105,000 hits.

Without quotes, Google is bringing up all the words in the phrase, no matter what the subject... for instance, all the many articles on the internet that simply have the word “flag” in it.

I knew it I just knew it. I think I posted in another thread during the 911 memorial. I don’t recall which one but the camera panned on Moochelle and omg that face of hers looked so ugly and she angry as if she didn’t want to be bother being there.

You need to put that into quotes, otherwise it it pulls up hits on the words separately. When in quotes, the search engine comes up with 104,000 hits.

“I just Googled “All this just for a flag” and it got 1,720,000,000 hits. Is that possible??????”

You have to put it in double quotes to limit the hits to that exact phrase. Then it comes down to 108,000.

Check out the video, and then read the comments. (Warning: some pretty tough language in the comments on Atlas Shrugs)

Here is the You Tube link - I typed in “for a flag” in the search box - and then clicked search. Then go to ‘relevance’, and then click ‘upload date’. It is the ninth clip down:

Really hard to call that, as that is her default facial expression.

Thanks, I was just wondering if youtube took it down.

It doesn’t really matter as Pam’s (Atlas Shrugs) site has it as loop.

Cameras? Yeah, and it looks like from the background in the vid that their two heads are up on a Jumbotron. But why would they worry about that when they have their lapdogs in the media. Have you heard about this on TV? I haven’t

In this case her disdain and utter contempt was significantly more apparent and pronounced than usual

What I have always wondered is what give these people their AUTHORITY? Yeah, Obama is President. So what. 8 years tops, supposed to uphold the constitution, and has limited powers. That isn’t going to convince me that he has the right to rule, because the office doesn’t give him that power.

These people are a law unto themselves. They think the superiority of their ideology give them the right to power. They think they can prop themselves up and rule us under the heel of their boot.

They think wrong.

I never bought into the ‘born in Kenya’ meme, but he sure as hell is NOT an American in the cultural sense, as most of us understand that to mean. His anti-American animus, unfortunately, was cultivated by his American-born mother and grandparents.

I'm with the two of you. It looked to me like she said something about "the free buffet" but I don't know.

I don't think lip reading is an exact science, but it would be interesting to find an actual expert to decipher.

Otherwise, this is a non-story.

I am hearing impaired, and lip-read a lot.
It does look to me, that she is saying “All this for a flag”
What bothers me more than that, is Obama refusing to bow his head in prayer to God.

God will not be mocked, and Obama will find that out the hard way.

It’s a non-story because it’s a Democrat. You’ll never see this or questioned on See-BS, et al.
