RESPECT...look it up. That was an important moment

in the lives of those men and women and for people to co-opt that moment in order to express political opinion was a gross error in judgement.

It wasn't about who the president is or what his failings are. It was about those men and women taking an oath to protect the Constitution.

EVERY moment isn't YOUR moment.

It has nothing to do with free speech. It is about respecting our Constitution the office of President and the young people taking the oath. Someday, they won't be taking orders from President Obama

I was in the stadium when it happened during the oath of allegiance of new military recruits. It happened when the military member (I believe it was a marine) stated, "I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic (LARGE AMOUNT OF GRUMBLING AND ESSENTIALLY SKIPPING THE WORD "DOMESTIC"); that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States (VERY MILD BOOING--TOO MILD FOR SOMEONE WHO ESSENTIALLY HAS DISRESPECTED THE LAWS OF THE COUNTRY REPEATEDLY) and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God."

I took this oath myself when I served. I respect the office of the president and understand that it is incumbent upon us all to uphold the law as written, apparently more than our current president does. I was pleasantly surprised to see that a large number of people in South Carolina "get it." I agree that everyone is entitled to his right of free speech.

Some throat clearing, maybe some knowing chuckles at that moment, that sort of thing but no boos, at least not in our section.

Unfortunately, that's the direction the lib media is trying to spin it. Same crap they did with Trayvon Martin. Anyone who was waiting to throw on their hoodie and grab an Arizona til after some due process was established was accused of being a racist.

The latest polls and approval ratings say otherwise. Personally thie rest of this country and the idiots who support this clown is why our country will be a 3rd world country in 3 years if he is re elected. The USA used to be some of the smartest people in the world. Boy has that changed.

There's no way that you really think that Obama being reelected would make the United States a third world country in three years. Don't let your personal hatred for a man influence your ability to think clearly.

Please tell me how his reelection would cause our country to decline so rapidly.

in that particular situation (during a military ceremony of respect and honor) it makes the people in that stadium looked like total dumb***es, whether they realize or not.

People think they are taking some sort of political action or making some sort of statement of protest. The thing that is so especially stupid about the whole situation is that all the idiots who booed, can easily see how stupid anti-war protesters and occupy protesters make themselves look, but they can't figure out they look exactly the same way when booing during a military ceremony at a college football game.

The only statement that the booing actually made, was NOT the President should be voted out of office, the real statement was that there were a lot of ignorant, imprudent turds in Death Valley on Saturday.

Being from South Carolina and a member of the armed forces that made me sick to my stomach. I was like wow I understand some dont like Obama being in the White House, but #### it he is the President of the United States. You dont have to respect the person, you MUST respect the position if you dont get the #### out my country. We lay it down on the line for you all over the country to try to keep the USofA safe and secure. That is blatant disrespect. I can't believe it.

so are you telling me the position of being President isn't earned? you have to be kidding me. there has been 44 presidents.. you don't have to respect the man. you respect the POSITION. that has nothing to do with you earning respect as a person. just like us in the military we dont have to respect the person.. we respect the RANK. Same concept if you dont understand that I'm sorry. Must be a military thing.

exactly just because i dont sometimes agree with things i am told to do i still have to do them. I may be able to speak my mind in a certain forum but sometimes we have to shut up and color. But to out right disrespect the colors which they did when they boo'd the President you may as well have spit on the flag itself. The President is an extension of that flag just like each and everyone of us are. If we want to go against that then we may as well start up the CSA again and see how that works out.. lol.. some people are just ridiculous.. They want so much change and yet some of them don't even vote.. You want change get off your couch and voice your opinion.

the people who boo'd just as it did the people who cheered. That is what makes America great - freedom. Freedom to boo or cheer - freedom to be a dumb#%$ or freedom to be a patriot. I was not there and did not know the situation where this occured and I agree with you that is was uncalled for but don't stomp the freedom the oath protects.

Most polls show gains for Romney in every battleground state. I don't know how you define "winning" a debate, but gaining ground in polls is a good indicator.

I don't really understand the mindset of people who accuse others of calling them racist unfairly because they disagree with them, yet insist on calling other's LIBERAL because they disagree with you. They could very easily be a moderate or even a Republican who viewed that particular act as rude and unnecessary. Personally I don't care which side you were on I consider it RUDE and disrespectful to the young people taking the oath, and I would feel the same if people had booed President Bush at the same event.

Remember years ago when the Dixie Chicks expressed their displeasure about the president (W) and this part of our country chastised them for their free speech about our president. Its funny how now that probably the same people that did that to them booed yesterday expressing their feelings and they are saying free speech.

I was really disappointed and it really bothered me for most of the day. Share your displeasure on election day and not a day to honor the military. Respect is something hard to come by nowadays.

on here go to to justify wrong over right.

If there wasn't such ignorance on here, people would realize that booing in that instance is disrespectful-- and it has nothing to do with the President. It has to do with the oath that those soldiers took to follow and obey orders NO MATTER WHO is commander in chief. That their oath supersedes and transcends politics, race, religion-- EVERYTHING but the Democratic process of this great country and the values that we all share. Your boos were disrespectful to the decision that our soldiers made, never mind the President.
