It is possible to love America without being proud of our actions.
How could anyone be "proud" of America under the Bush administration. What was so wonderful about starting a unilateral war? Or the torture of prisoners of war?
Certainly we have more to be proud of under Obama. We are still at war but actions have been taken to end war, clean up the air, provide heath care to the uninsured and equal rights to gays. The Hate Crimes Prevention Act is certainly something of which we should be proud. Things are certainly looking up.
But who can be proud of an uncompromising Congress or the hatred being directed at children in crisis, people of color or religious affiliation?
What I don't understand is how anyone can possibly be proud of being a Republican.
It's even more possible to love your country when it corrects its wrongs. If Ms. Obama was never proud of her country, she should have blamed the Southern Democratic bloc.

Bush had a Democratic Congress the last two years of his presidency - right before the economy crashed.

Does that even enter your mind at all?

If Obama has a Republican Congress his last two years, are you going to blame him or them if things get better or worse?

why do conservatives always equate understanding the motivations of a group with support?
Because it is HAMAS, a terrorist group, that is shooting rockets at Israel.

The Report really lays the responsibility of keeping us safe in the lap of our uncompromising Congress.
Excerpts from the former commissioners report titled: "Today’s Rising Terrorist Threat and the Danger to the United States: Reflections on the Tenth Anniversary of The 9/11 Commission Report"
"Effective congressional oversight is especially important in areas, like homeland security, where much government activity necessarily occurs out of public view. Unlike other areas of policy, where the press and public can themselves monitor what their government is doing, the public must rely on Congress to be its eyes and ears with respect to sensitive and classified national security programs. Put simply: If Congress is not effectively overseeing these programs, no one is. Congress’s failure to reform itself makes the country less safe. "
"Many experts have told us that Congress’s refusal to reform its antiquated oversight weakens the country’s security by diminishing Congress’s effectiveness as a partner in the overall security endeavor. Ultimately, streamlining Congress’s oversight of DHS and intelligence is not a question of preserving committee chairs’ power or prerogatives. It is an imperative of national security."

" It is long past time for Congress to oversee the department as a cohesive organization rather than a collection of disparate parts."
http://bipartisanpolicy.org/sites/default/fil...
Above all, this report is labeled as being bipartisan and, as such, it cannot be expected to point any fingers at the Magic Negro. If it tried to, Liberal members of the report team would walk away. Therefore, the report members found it much easier to simply yell at a nameless Congressional body.

Page #7

"First, as of this writing, the fanatical Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has conquered
parts of Syria and much of Western Iraq, slaughtering thousands of people in the process. As we wrote in The 9/11 Commission Report: If “Iraq becomes a failed state, it will go to the top of the list of places that are breeding grounds for attacks against Americans at home.” That
nightmare scenario may now be coming to pass. Second, al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula has advanced bombmaking capabilities and has already attempted several attacks on U.S. aviation targets. While the various al Qaeda spinoffs are primarily focused on regional conflicts, they hate the United States and will not forego opportunities to strike at the U.S. homeland.
~~~~~~~~~~
First, the Azzhole-In-Chief said that Al Qaeda is on the run and then he goes off playing golf. Secondly, he then appoints two devout Muslims to run DHS and allows Iraq to slip into the hands of terrorist Muslims and draws a red line in Syria's sand while running away like a child at play.

This report is correct to try browbeating Congress into finally asserting itself and telling the Boy where to shove it. Impeachment, in this context at least, is imperative.

The Russians warned our government about the Boston Bombers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, and yet Boy Messiah did nothing. Muslim heads of DHS? We are in deep trouble.

Report quote: "Put simply: If Congress is not effectively overseeing these programs,
no one is." and "It is not just a law that makes an organization or system work; it is the
people."

This is because the Magic Negro is working against Congress. Look at the Mexican Border. Look at Benghazi.

You are a Fool in Sheep's clothing, Babee.

We can never forget Obama apologizing to the world for America's sacrifices as liberators, peacekeepers and the most generous country in the world when a crisis affects other parts of the world.
Ms. Jarrett must have overlooked giving him a history lesson first.
He thought if he made us look less exceptional and said he was sorry that we were exceptional, the bad guys would see the light and all would be well in the world under his community - and now global - organizational skills.
We just needed time to reprioritize after 2008. But Obama and Emmanuel didn't want to let that good crisis go to waste - like any good Marxist.
Obama told the truth. Sometimes truth hurts. We DID use a nuclear weapon and there have certainly been times when "America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive" in dealing with other nations. You people view Obama's admission to those FACTS as an apology. Since when did a statement of facts become an apology?

Typical rethug. Complains about people from Central America crossing into Mexico and then the United States but isn't willing to do anything about it. Greedy republicans are never willing to put their money where their mouth is.

There you go again with the "native land" nonsense. It was not their native land. They hadn't had a connection to the land for hundreds of years. Get over that type of thinking. The Arabs and Jews were living peacefully side-by-side prior to the establishment of the state of israel. The zionists are to blame. Plan and simple. They should have set up their state in a land surrounded by friends not enemies.

I notice you make a lot of accusations that are not true. You really should stop listening to those voices in your head.
This was senseless response to the post "UN recognizes countries. You hate Israel...your problem."

Hmmm, I want to know what voices in her head says this is untrue.

Also, would like to know more about this ESP she claims to have that allows her to read UN members minds.

Stupid is highly profitable in America. Yes, Michael Moore is wealthy but Magic Negro is buying a $4 million home, for example, and Little Alvin Sharpton has his own Radio Show and a big bank account for promoting racism.

All of these azzholes purport a hatred of capitalism
