Even if he despises America, you'd think he would at least pretend not to in public. What was he thinking? What he trying to make some kind of statement?

Ok, I'll play devil's advocate here. How do we know exactly when this photo was taken? Perhaps this was taken just before the anthem started and a second later, Obama raised his hand to his heart. We just don't know given the scant information presented here. If the OP knows more, he should post it.

...Not that I'm going to vote for Obama or anything, but a photo proves nothing. News photographers are noted for releasing photos taken at just the precise moments to produce controversy. And news organizations are noted for jumping on photos that advance their agendas.

Look at this web site:
http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/anthem.asp

There is a video of it as well.

Well, he needs to get with the program then. I don't care what his grandpappy taught him. He needs to avoid the appearance of impropriety when he's running for president.

It's odd, that's for sure.

Doesn't influence my vote one way or the other. I've already made my mind up about the candidates. (None of them are good...)

I guess that I was being too subtle. The photo above is a clickable link to the Snopes writeup that has video. The video shows Obama with his hands down during the entire anthem.
On a side note, who sang the anthem in that video? What a hack job!

It is disgusting to me that Obama is still even in the race after this. Rush and Hannity both were all over this when it first happened. The conservative radio chatter over this has died down recently, but can you imagine the press this would have gotten if it had been a Republican....
