A true patriot doesn't believe he can do enough or give more than he's received from America. Moving your HQ off shore to avoid your fair share of maintaining the greatest republic the world has ever known shows that if America ever needed you, you would abandon her.

Obama ignores Congress, chastises the Supreme Court, releases terrorists to fight against America and lies continuously to the American people. Yet, he has the temerity to call others up patriotic!

At it's peak the Bush administration had released over 500 prisoners from Guantanamo. 550 From 2002 until December, 2009. To about three dozen countries

And when did he call anyone unpatriotic?

Now, this is not the first time, Obama called anyone unpatriotic. Remember when he called Bush unpatriotic for increasing the debt by $4 trillion? If only Obama remembered. Perhaps he
wouldn't have increased the debt by twice that.

Corporations are what can save this country if Washington would let them. They pay taxes in the country where the money is made and another 35% when the money is repatriated.

Come on, that extra $7Bn of debt was Bush's fault, much like the loss of the atmosphere on Mars.

As usual, Democrats create a problem, then try to correct the problem they created by blaming others. People will eventually wake to their perfidy and the inherent dishonesty of the Marxism they've embraced.

The responses from these stupid tea-baggers on here to this article is just shows the depth of their ignorance and blind-hate towards everything President Obama thinks, says or does.
Who in their right mind, with an ounce of intelligence would honestly be for a person who makes millions or billions because of this great nation’s economic structure, laws and security – then placing that money where they can avoid giving back to better the nation.

It is unpatriotic… and that is exactly why the right isn’t against it… because they are unpatriotic. Remember they are the ones who hoped for failure.

Outsourcing and offshore holdings were started by Democrats, especially by Democrats in Hollywood, which then spread to other sectors. The Democrat hold on utility commissions has enabled the back and forth sale of our birthright utilities to foreign elements. It is Democrat controlled thieves in places like Detroit, who are threatening and depriving citizens of basic human needs like water.

Marine Corpse Puss can claim some red-herring attack to take people's attention of the treasonous Democrat conspiracies and strangleholds on communities, schools, local governments nationwide, but the continued enslavement by banks, utilities and local governments of the common citizen is and has been a result of Democrat Party takeover by Marxists. Banks fund their reelections and Democrats let them get away with charging you over 25% interest on loans. They let large natural gas utilities get owned by German companies and Democrats are the major stockholders and CEOs. Marxist Democrats don't have your best interests at heart and haven't for decades.

It would be easier to swallow the liar-in-chiefs swill if he publicly calls in the GE CEO who is a white house advisor to the presidunce and makes him pony up the 10 billion in taxes they didn't pay by shuffling the money into the offshore subsidiaries. Then go after Gates, zuckerberg and all the other odumbo fundraising highrollers.

You tea-baggers are just sick and twisted in the head to find so many ways to place blame on the Democrats and President Obama all while trying to divert attention away from the fact that the there are wealthy Americans who try to get out of paying their fair share in taxes. President Obama has been touting this message since he ran for President in 2008, and the rich who may or may not be paying all of their taxes have been contributing to all of his fundraisers.

So what is your point?

It is sad and pathetic that you allow racist hate towards the first Black President to could your thinking on so many basic things. The best part is that President Obama couldn’t care less about your hate, he is moving forward with his agenda and the right-wingers are having fits galoure, LOL!

Pretending that you were a marine is hardly patriotic.
