Now some of you might laugh and consider this a silly reason for Mitt’s loss. I disagree. This is a very important thing to note. It is so important that it was the subject of the mainstream political press just five short years ago during the last Presidential campaign. Only that time the person not wearing a flag pin was Sen. Barak Obama. On Oct 4th, 2007 the Drudge report ran the story, “Obama Drops American Flag Pin.” It was then picked up by the national main stream media.
The exact same thing should happen here with Romney and Paul not wearing flag pins.
