If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Obama & the Philipine Flag Fiasco

Remember when people talked about how stupid W was?  How he couldn't, wouldn't be able to do anything right.  Then came Team Obama...who have insulted our closest allies.  First by giving Gordon Brown, Prime Minister of UK a set of DVD's that he can't play, and then by giving Queen  Elisabeth an iPod with Obama's speeches on it...now comes this via GatewayPundit via YahooNews
The U.S. government said Sunday it made an “honest mistake” when it displayed an inverted Philippine flag — which wrongfully signified that the Southeast Asian nation was in a state of war — in a meeting hosted by President Barack Obama.


The Philippine flag was displayed upside down behind President Benigno Aquino III when leaders of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations met Obama in New York on Friday.

“This was an honest mistake,” U.S. Embassy spokeswoman Rebecca Thompson said in a statement, adding, “the U.S. treasures its close relationship and close partnership with the Philippines.”
What a bunch of morons.  This administration is supposed to be filled  with smart people, and yet they keep continually doing stupid shit!  It's not that difficult a thing to do.  But, none of these dolts seem to be able to do a simple Google search to find out even the most basic information.

UPDATE:  The Obama Administration is claiming it was an honest mistake (?) that they displayed the Philipine flag upside down.
"This was an honest mistake," U.S. Embassy spokeswoman Rebecca Thompson said in a statement, adding, "the U.S. treasures its close relationship and close partnership with the Philippines."

In the Philipines, displaying the flag upside daown signifies tha the island nation is in a state of war.  This is from an administration that is/was supposed to bring us "smart diplomacy."  Yeah right...bunch of morons.
