This is why conservative hate propaganda is so corrosive to our national discourse. We are a country given over to sheer, blind, unreasoning hatred, incapable of discussion and compromise. No matter how big we are, no matter how big our military is, we are a failed experiment. There is no place for wise people in our national government. They wouldn’t be allowed to have any influence anyway.
Hope for the world, if there is any, lies elsewhere.
More than a third of Americans don’t think President Obama loves America, according to a new survey.
Less than half of adults, 47 percent, said the president loves his country, while 35 percent said he doesn’t and 17 percent weren’t sure, according to a Huffington Post/YouGov poll released this week.
[…] The poll was conducted amid furor last week over former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s comment during a dinner in Manhattan that “I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America.”
