For a man who hasn't an ounce of personal humility, the president makes up for it by being downright obsequious when it comes to recounting his country's supposed transgressions. In his globetrotting speeches, Obama reviled the United States' history of slavery, the mistreatment of Indians and alleged torture of terrorists.
It is easy to grovel on behalf of a nation that you despise. What I want to know is how anyone can argue that Barack Obama is proud of America. Show me any public pronouncement where he has ever pointed to specific things of which he is proud. Vague references to pride in America, followed by lists of specific acts of which he is ashamed, does not equate to patriotism.
Barack Obama is an enemy of America, not a friend.
