FFS was referring to people on the right questioning the patriotism of people on the left. I don't think patriotism is questioned. The politics are questioned. Both sides want what's good for America, just different opinions on how to get there or what the good actually is.
You don't think the teabaggers have been questioning the patriotism of the people on the left? Just exactly where have you been. The hypocrite teabagger birther nuts do it all the time. They are all hypocrites. What are you?

No, I never heard teabaggers (your term) question patriotism.

You have to separate birther nuts from teabaggers. That wasn't an issue. That belongs to the FEMA camp loons that jumped onto the band wagon.

Supported him. When did he say the left was unpatriotic? In other words, love of country.

I guess that you don't know the latest. OBAMA WANT TO GO OVER THE FISCAL CLIFF SO HE CAN BLAME IT ON THE REPUBLICANS.
"Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said Wednesday that President Barack Obama’s administration is “absolutely” willing to go off the so-called fiscal cliff if Republicans refuse to increase taxes on the nation’s top earners.
During an interview with CNBC, Geithner was asked if the White House was willing to dive off the cliff if Republicans don’t accept a deal that raise tax rates for those making more than $250,000.
“Oh, absolutely," he responded. "Again, there's no prospect in an agreement that doesn't involve the rates going up on the top 2 percent of the wealthiest."
Geithner’s comments offer the strongest indication that Obama would accept the automatic spending cuts and tax rate increases that kick in if an agreement is not reached before the Dec. 31 deadline."

In other words, Obama gives a sh*t about you and me or other Americans. It is one big game for him and his fellow Democrats to get the Republicans. IMHO, he does not care about the damage it does to America as he is doing it for political gain.

On the Senate floor this afternoon, minority leader Mitch McConnell asked for a vote on President Obama’s craptastic proposal for averting the fiscal cliff. Harry Reid swiftly shot him down:

Reid’s own little stunt proved McConnell’s point: that the president’s proposal is lousy.

Your verbosity overlooks a simple fact. Obama is standing his ground. If we go off he so-called fiscal cliff, the Republicans will be blamed, and rightly so. Rebublicas are trying to bluff, but Democrats hold the winning hand.

Gee Whiz Mr. Wolf, let them blame anyone, I don't give a rip. It's Obama's budget, if he can't get it passed how is that the Republicans fault? Who is their right mind, or left mind if their right handed, would vote for the budget, he put on the table? At some point you run out of "The Rich" to pay the bill

Where's unpatriotic? Sounds like a severe disagreement in ideologies. I've heard him refer to individuals as unpatriotic, especially the president.:-)

How many in that poll, pay their 'fair share'? People who don't pay the bill, are the loudest complainers? Billie Boie.
