IF as the comment re Ms. Criswell is correct on timing, not one person had his/her hand over his/her heart for the National Anthem.

What? We’re surprised?

The US flag is not displayed by the capital building and/or the audience members are not ‘holding their hearts’. Am I right?

Does it have something to do with Photoshop is your friend?

Like, why are the people in the crowd so tiny?

It’s all those ignorent young people who have no respect for the National Anthem and are yucking it up and taking pictures rather then standing silently with their hands over their hearts.

Not true ... it's sorta blurry, but it's right there just below the dome.

It has nothing to do with Ms. Criswell.

Not even the fact that she was going to "vote right after the rally" (on Sunday, when the early voting places aren't open)?

Lots of hats on heads while the anthem is being played.

There is a flag on that capitol building, though. Right in front of the dome.

Yep, you got it first! I think it is correct, because her expression seems consistent with closing ones eyes and enjoying a piece of music, perhaps even with singing along.

What? We’re surprised?

Not me.

Obama’s hair is gray again. And not even naturally gray. You start getting gray around the temples first. It looks like he dusted flour all over his head.

You’re right about the members but not the flag. If you look closer you can see the flag (it looks like a reddish spot at this distance) about halfway down the rotunda.

She does not know when the ‘early voting’ is scheduled? Not surprising.

I work at a survey research center. Lots of self identified African Americans do NOT know who the guy is running with Obama. “Biden? Is that that white guy???” “Is he running with Obama?” “I am not sure who Obama’s VP running mate is, but I am voting for Obama”

Verbatim and typical answers. Scary

That she can sleep standing up? I worked with this black man that slept standing up too and every time you woke him up he would open his eyes and say he was praying. Ha ha, it was a big joke in the office till we found ouselves doing our job and his too.

Other than the flag on the capitol building, I dont see any American flags in the crowd.

Then again, that's par for the course at an Obamination rally.

They’re hands, like Obomba’s hands while listening to the National Anthem, are covering that part of their body they believe most important.

This is an Obama tactic. Have a rally near an early voting location so people can listen and then vote. It is happening in several battle ground states. Early voting should be abolished.
