Unbelievable! Imagine if someone had caught Barack Obama doing this in an unguarded moment. The wingnuts would be playing it nonstop for the next century, using it as absolute proof that Obama is NOT a patriot and that he doesn't respect our flag.
George W. Bush is the American president and he is in a foreign country. And look what he's doing to the symbol of America while thousands of foreigners look on. The man who represents us is drubbing the symbol of the country he heads, and isn't even aware of what he is doing.
No one on the Right seems to be bothered by it in the least. But had Obama been caught. Oh my, oh my, oh my.
