I appreciate those 3 comments above. I didn't like Kerry because he grew up overseas. His wife was born in Mozambique and she went to Johannesburg.

I saw a Kerry quote where he bragged about biclying around France and Germany as a child. ( Who knows how much of that was green earth global warming propaganda) - But nonetheless it told me he is not an American, not like I am.

Now, this Obama stands around groping his privates when the Natonal Anthem is being played, as he is up on stage, in front of the crowd. Not even Hillary nor Richardson stooped to that level of "dissing" the USA, that I can recall, at least in the hotdogs apple pie and chevrolet sense of things. It certainly made me wonder if Obama would encourage burning Old Glory. And it should, it was an outrage, it was telling me how much he hates and disowns the USA. I'm still rather angry about it. I would have liked to see another official remove him from the stage for failing to participate properly, like he was a 3rd grader who didn't know what to do. If a serviceman from the crowd had jumped up and removed him forcefully, I would have applauded.

I frankly don't get it, unless I start thinking about his "roots" - and his "church" .. . Africa as the most important thing... maybe Indonesia, too. We don't need an America hater in denial as POTUS. His constituents, in the chatrooms, constantly put down and blame the USA for everything, it's like their knee jerk must be true line, every single time they open their mouths. The next breath they tell me their highest duty as a patriot is to question their country. ( I guess "questioning" means blaming every evil, real or imagined, on the USA, and speccifically on the "Bush neocon" and their cia and oil lords. ) Obama is one of them, they are supproting him, I'd really like to hear what he says in his ungaurded and private moments - about the USA.
