IF THIS IS TRUE - WHAT SONG WOULD YOU CHANGE IT TO?

Quote from the mouth of Sen. Obama himself from Sundays Meet the
Press:

"As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as
taking sides, Obama said. 'There are a lot of people in the world to
whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression. And the anthem
itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in
air and all. It should be swapped for something less parochial and
less bellicose. I like the song 'I'd Like To Teach the World To
Sing.' If that were our anthem, then I might salute it. We should
consider to reinvent our National Anthem as well as to redesign our
Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love."

    Only change I want is for the 4th verse to be sung if only one verse is sung. The first verse alone does not make sense as it ends with a question.
    Our National Anthem was the inspiration for our National Motto "In God We Trust". Fourth verse follows.

    O, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand,
    Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
    Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land
    Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
    Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
    And this be our motto: "In God is our trust"
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
    O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

    The very best song ever written about America...BY and American, by the way...is
    Woody Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land'...I've believed for decades that it should be our new national anthem. Seeing Pete Seeger leading tens of thousands of our brethren through some of the more obscure verses of the song at the "We Are One' concert drove me to promise myself that I was going to do what I can to keep this ball rolling.

    If you didn't like the anthem or the flag, Obama, and you are unsure of what the anthem refers to, I think maybe you ran for office in the wrong country. I want to improve my country, not move to Happy Smurfity land where all bad thoughts are suppressed and everyone who voices dissent gets mandatory prozac.

    THE USA NEEDS NO CHANGE TO ITS NATIONAL ANTHEM. MANY IDIOTS NEED TO BE REMINDED TO SHOW THE PROPER RESPECT FOR OUR COUNTRY AND ITS FLAG DURING THE SINGING OF THIS SONG. I DO NOT BELIEVE ANYONE OTHER THAN THE SENATOR HAS THIS OPINION. AS FOR THE IDIOTS WHO STUFF CHICKEN AND FRIES IN THEIR MOUTH OR CHAT ON A CELL PHONE DURING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM AT A BALL GAME. GO LIVE IN ANOTHER COUNTRY OR AT LEAST WIPE YOUR FACE. NASTY DISRESPECTFUL PIECE OF TRASH.

    now why in the world would someone want to change something that is centuries old and has been the National traditon for centuries....what kind of fool or hair brained idiot would want change unless he needs changing himself????... our men in service and overseas have held their heads high in respect for the flag that represents freedom in America..are we not gonna have that freedom any longer????...I strongly oppose anyone that gives hints as to changing our freedom of speech and and religion in this country..after all, this country was based on religion and freedom to represent such religious beliefs...if he has a problem with the way Americans conduct themselves with age old traditions then he needs to go back to whatever den he crawled out of

    Obama has no right to change something that is a part of our history.
    And if he has such an issue with our country, our flag, our song, he shouldn't be President. It defeats the purpose.

    The Star Spangled Banner is about an historical event when we had to protect ourselves from attackers. It is not about attacking others. It was one of our defining moments in history. How ridiculous to put it in those terms as Obama did.

    Obaba wants to change everything to a dictatorship and to his liking. Leave our National Anthem alone. If Obaba had his way, the wording on money would say "In Obaba We Trust." What an egotistical bastard.

    and what reason? we should be proud.
    electing obama has shown the rest of the world that we still deserve their respect.
    we would have to be in fear if McCain and Palin entered office and continued the same crap we have been going through for the last eight years.

    Now let's think about this. Have you ever been employed by a FLAG? The flag is a symbol, a piece of cloth. The president is employed by the American people, a group Obama proudly salutes.

    Check you facts, please: http://www.snopes.com/politic...

    If we did change it though I've always like "America the Beautiful" and it's much easier to sing. I especially like "with brotherhood" part. We need some of that right now.

    Well look online and you will find photos of him NOT saluting the american flag or even looking at it when the anthem is playing.... that IS sickening.

    One photo of one instance in which he didn't. I honestly have no idea what was happening when that picture was taken so it might be out of context.

    Also, I've seen a video of Obama leading the Senate in the pledge of allegiance. He was looking at the flag the whole time.
