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.<quoted text>
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.
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?
