Fake Patriot(s)

Barack Obama stops wearing the U.S. flag lapel pin.

I don't care about it. Wear it, don't wear it. Doesn't bother me. What bothers me is the explanation he gave.
Shortly after 9/11, particularly because as we're talking about the Iraq War, that became a substitute for I think true patriotism
Is he saying that those who continue to wear the pin aren't true patriots? How does he feel about displaying the flag in general? Can't I have true patriotism and still be proud to display an American flag?

This reeks of pure desperation. His poll numbers are tanking and he's trying to cozy up to the hardcore anti-American/anti-war Left.
