Find me pics of Ike, or Dubya, or Ronnie Ray-guns covering up for the Anthem in a suit. And find them before they were Presidents.
Are you retarded?
I do it now just out of habit. I wasn't in grade school in 2009.
Can't you read?
I've been in a lot of public places where the Anthem has been sung and I haven't seen hatless people in civilian clothes with hands over hearts. Until after Fake News made it an issue in the summer of 2008.
And, quite frankly, I seriously doubt anybody who says they regularly sang the Anthem in grade school.
Pledge yes, Anthem no.
So find me Republicans who were doing it before they became President. Or pack this up.
