Crowds Boo During National Guard Ceremony at Mizzou Football Game

It happened again. Three months after a rodeo clown mocked the president at the Missouri State Fair, fans at a Missouri-Tennessee football game Sunday booed when Barack Obama’s name was mentioned during a halftime ceremony.

New members of the Missouri National Guard were being sworn in, said Chad Moller, spokesman for University of Missouri-Columbia athletics.

But during part of the oath that reads “I will obey the order of the president of the United States” members of the crowd could be heard booing, according to the Missourian.

I’m all in favor of booing at the name of the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, but this wasn’t the time or place (during the oath).

Inappropriate. They are promising to defer to the office of President, not the specific person.

Avocation of uncharitable acts is against forum policy
