Makes Sense To Me

Obama's comments regarding the picture of him not putting his hand over his heart during the national anthem:

"My grandfather taught me how to say the Pledge of Allegiance when I was 2," Obama said, his annoyance obvious. "During the Pledge of Allegiance you put your hand over your heart. During the national anthem you sing."

A woman also asked Obama about the photo Tuesday night during a town hall meeting in Cedar Rapids, evoking a similar reaction. "This is the classic dirty trick of the campaign," Obama said. He added that he's often the target of anonymous criticism on the Internet. "You've got e-mails saying I'm a Muslim plant trying to take over America," Obama said. "We've seen this before." He advised the woman to tell the sender of the e-mail the real story. "You don't have to curse them out, just tell them they've got their facts wrong," he said.
