PHOTOS: These Folks In Tenn. Got A Big Belly Laugh After Waiving The Confederate Flag To Greet Obama
Obama got a little surprise on this way out of Nashville the other day. Some local residents decided it would be great to wave the confederate flag in his face to rile Obama up.
See you later Obama and don't hurry back to town seems to be the sentiment they wanted to convey. Obama is trying to make have the confederate flag removed from government locations around the south.
If there’s one thing we know by now, it’s that some people in the South love their Confederate flags, so a bunch of people in Tennessee decided to greet President Barack Obama’s the only way they know how.
Obama was at the Stratton Elementary School in Madison to deliver a speech on his health care law, and several people lined the street, waving Confederate flags.
Some also were holding the flag along Obama’s motorcade route as he returned to the airport after his speech, according to The Hill.
