Fox's Chris Wallace Backs Obama On Flag Pin

Barack Obama has an unexpected ally in the spat over his decision to stop wearing an American flag lapel pin, which he says has become a substitute for "true patriotism" since 9/11.

Chris Wallace, host of Fox News Sunday, said this morning that he doesn't wear a flag pin either "because I kind of agree [with Obama] to the extent that I think that you can be a true patriot and not wear it."

Fox News has been covering Obama's flag pin comments heavily today, far more than the other cable news nets. At one point, Fox legal correspondent Judge Andrew Napolitano declared that Obama was "disrespecting the American flag" to appeal "to a hard-left audience." (Strangely, Napolitano voiced the very opposite opinion during the same segment. "I don't think it makes you less patriotic at all," he said. "I don't wear the pin, and I'm a patriot." Huh?)
