Per U.S. Code 36 chapter 10 subsection 171, placing the right hand over the heart is the correct form of showing respect during the national anthem when wearing civilian attire. Military personnel in uniform should salute instead.

http://www.usflag.org/uscode36.html

§171. Conduct during playing

During rendition of the national anthem when the flag is displayed, all present except those in uniform should stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Men not in uniform should remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart. Persons in uniform should render the military salute at the first note of the anthem and retain this position until the last note. When the flag is not displayed, those present should face toward the music and act in the same manner they would if the flag were displayed there.

Imagine that. Instead of bickering on and on and on about it, someone took the initiative to get the answer from the official source. Thanks CJ!

An amendment to the above flag code was passed on Jan 3, 2012 as follows:

(B) members of the Armed Forces and veterans who are present but not in uniform may render the military salute in the manner provided for individuals in uniform

Refer: http://uscode.house.gov/download/pls/36C3.txt

All branches of the military were made aware of this amendment upon its passing but it appears to remain unincorporated into the flag code references widely available online.

I believe that passed into law after Obama became President.

The motivation is likely a response to the kerfuffle over the picture of candidate Obama standing without hand over heart.

And as rowdy pointed out, a hand over heart salute is customary during the pledge, not the anthem.
Nonetheless, there are lots of folks willing to make big deals out of little things where Obama is concerned. I believe that picture dates back to pre-2008 election, btw. And folks are still passing it around.
I don't see any evidence that Obama hates America.
Yeah, these idiots making big deals about little things. Like Benghazi and the president lying about it and Americans dying and Generals resigning.

If he didn't hate America he'd get the hell out of the way with his czars and let business run itself.
We have the 'fiscal cliff' looming and war ready to break out in Gaza. Why is he touring Asia? What unholy alliance is he working on now?

The flag code has stated hand over heart since at least 1964.

As for the pledge of allegience, members of the military ARE NOT required to recite it as they already pledge their allegience by wearing a uniform. As commander in chief of the military, the president is also exempted from reciting the pledge.

As commander in chief, why would he want to "exempt himself"?

Because a military member reciting the pledge is redundant. Previous presidents have done the same.

To overcome this the ego employs defense mechanisms. The defense mechanisms are not done so directly or consciously. They lessen the tension by covering up our impulses that are threatening.[17] Ego defense mechanisms are often used by the ego when id behavior conflicts with reality and either society's morals, norms, and taboos or the individual's expectations as a result of the internalization of these morals, norms, and their taboos.
Denial, displacement, intellectualisation, fantasy, compensation, projection, rationalization, reaction formation, regression, repression, and sublimation were the defense mechanisms Freud identified. However, his daughter Anna Freud clarified and identified the concepts of undoing, suppression, dissociation, idealization, identification, introjection, inversion, somatisation, splitting, and substitution.
Reads like a page out of the Republican psyche.

Why is he touring Asia?

He thinks he is president of the world, not just the USA. He is reaching out to try to uplift all non-white people at the expense of the American tax payer.

What unholy alliance is he working on now.

He is trying to get rid of all nuclear weapons, repeal free speech and eliminate the 2nd Amendment though the filthy UN. Obama is up to no good and cannot be trusted.

You don't have a clue of what Obama is really up to. Teenage Black unemployment is 50% and you people blindly support him just like you blindly supported O.J. Simpson and celebrated when he was let off for cold blooded murder.

As soon as that occurs, today's conservatives have their own "truth," their own experts to spout it, and their own communication channels—newspapers, cable networks, talk radio shows, blogs, encyclopedias, think tanks, even universities—to broad- and narrowcast it.

We've been trained to equivocate, to not to see this trend toward anti-factualism for what it is—sweeping, systemic. This is particularly true of reporters.
Insanity has been defined as doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome, and that's precisely where our country stands now with regard to the conservative denial of reality. For a long time, we've been trained to equivocate, to not to see it for what it is—sweeping, systemic. This is particularly true of reporters and others trained to think that objectivity will out. Yet the problem is gradually dawning on many of us, particularly as the 2012 election began to unfold and one maverick Republican, Jon Huntsman, put his party's anti-factual tendencies in focus with a Tweet heard round the world:

To be clear, I believe in evolution and trust scientists on global warming. Call me crazy.

The cost of this assault on reality is dramatic. Many of these falsehoods affect lives and have had—or will have—world-changing consequences. And more dangerous than any of them is the utter erosion of a shared sense of what's true—which they both generate, and perpetuate.

Consider, just briefly, some of the wrong ideas that have taken hold of significant swaths of the conservative population in the U.S:
