Reason number four of why I’m not voting for Obama: Un-American Behavior So does anyone remember how Obama refused to wear the American flag pin? I do. Here’s what he said in response to someone asking him about not wearing it. "You know, the truth is that right after 9/11, I had a pin," Obama said. "Shortly after 9/11, particularly because as we're talking about the Iraq War, that became a substitute for I think true patriotism, which is speaking out on issues that are of importance to our national security, I decided I won't wear that pin on my chest. "Instead," he said, "I'm going to try to tell the American people what I believe will make this country great, and hopefully that will be a testimony to my patriotism." So I guess if you wear a flag pin, you’re not a true patriot. Well, I understand what he was saying, but later we see him standing there with his hands down to his side as the National Anthem was played. Everyone else on that platform had their hand on their heart, showing their respect and devotion to this country and the principles for which is stands. What kind of example is it for a president of the United States of America to not show this respect and devotion? Some will say it’s no big deal. These are the same people that intentionally disregard every other blatantly un-American thing about Mr. Obama. Like his great fondness for communists and socialist and their ideals which he firmly embraces. Like his desire to “spread the wealth around” or as it’s commonly called, the redistribution of wealth. Like his healthcare law that obligates American citizens to buy healthcare insurance whether they can afford it or not, or whether they want it or not. What about his failure not to secure the borders of the USA? Not only has he failed to do this, he has stood against Arizona’s right to enforce immigration laws. On top of that, without seeking the approval of Congress, or going through proper constitutionally provided procedures, he has given a free pass to millions of illegal aliens. It is patently un-American to ignore and by pass the laws of the land; a common occurrence in the Obama administration in the past few years. Inappropriate uses of executive privilege and recess appointments that circumvent the intent of the constitution have become the norm. And remember the big GM bailout and how the Democrats sang its praises at their convention? GM is once again flirting with bankruptcy despite massive government purchases propping up its sales figures. GM stock is rock-bottom. Losses continue to be revised in the wrong direction. According to The Detroit News, "The Treasury Department says in a new report the government expects to lose more than $25 billion on the $85 billion auto bailout. That's 15 percent higher than its previous forecast." In other words, the administration is lying again. Remember how they berated Romney for sending American jobs overseas, while Obama was saving thousands and thousands of American jobs by saving GM. The fact is the biggest winners from the bailout were the workers in Europe and China. GM has increased its manufacturing capacity in China by an estimated 55 percent after the bailout, according to industry watchers. In Europe, the UAW's appointee to the Government Motors Board of Directors, Steve Girsky, recklessly pushed the feds to hold onto GM's failing German-based Opel AG. The Great American Auto Bailout has been subsidizing this hemorrhaging enterprise while Obama failed to deliver on his 2008 campaign promise to salvage plants like the one in GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan's hometown of Janesville, Wis. According to Forbes magazine, "GM Europe, comprised mostly of Opel and its sister brand, Vauxhall, lost $617 million in the first half of 2012, on top of a $747 million loss in 2011 and a $1.8 billion loss in 2010. In all, GM has lost almost $17 billion in Europe since 1999." Government Motors is now planning to invest $1 billion over the next five years -- not in America, but in Russia. That's on top of $7 billion total in China, close to $1 billion in Mexico, and $600 million for a shirt sponsorship deal with Manchester United, the British soccer club. So the hypocrisy continues as Obama bolsters the economies of foreign countries while taking tax dollars and throwing into the pit known as General Motors. Saving the unions while some 20,000 nonunion Delphi auto parts workers. The forgotten victims saw their pensions erode by up to 70 percent; their health benefits disappeared. This is just a small fraction of the un-American behavior we’ve seen from this president and his administration. It’s time to get rid of him and give the job to someone else. *Note: Much of this is quoted from different sources found on the internet. You’re welcome to check the facts for yourself.
