"The right in an attempt to corner the term "patriot" for it's own purposes has cheapened the meaning of the word. Good gosh in Minneapolis we have a right wing talk radio station called "The Patriot"...."

You mean kind of like Obama did about debt spending...saying Bush was unpatriotic because of it?

"What is odd about this question?"

Worry's question about why he has to be a patriot is what is odd.

What is odd about this question?
On tv Bill O'Reilly said that Bush 2 and Obama are patriots..
So I wondered how gas buddies feel about Obama.
I have my doubts!!!!!

Nick, either way you look at it, it is an extremely odd question.

>>That would apply to the president. No need to question his patriotism.

worry, why would you ask that question?<<

Perhaps worryfree isn't questioning Obama's patriotism (as defined by Merriam-Webster), but merely wondering why someone would start a topic asking if he is a patriot, keeping in mind that many who call themselves patriots are either jingoists or people who support only their own view of the country.

Of course, I'm just hypothesizing. I have no idea what worryfree actually meant by that comment, and I certainly don't want to make a strawman argument by claiming that they meant something other than what they actually meant, as others like to do.

There were other candidates besides the two elitist selected puppets. I thought the exact same as you but chose to cast a vote for Gary Johnson. Unfortunately for all of us, 'the powers behind the throne' do not permit ANY dissension from us servants.

If we wait for the two DOMINANT parties to get our country moving the way our Founding Fathers intended, it will not happen in our lifetime. A Presidential Debate was held in 2012 where ALL Candidates were invited to debate. The Democripts and Rebloodicans chose not to embarrass themselves with debating with candidates interested in SOLVING our problems.

Maybe we will eventually learn that the two parties have absolutely no interest in this country or its everyday citizens.

Patriot-"a person who loves and strongly supports or fights for his or her country." Merriam-Webster dictionary.

That would apply to the president. No need to question his patriotism.

worry, why would you ask that question?

Bill believes Obama is genuinely trying to improve the Nation.

However, Obama purposefully acts against the well-being of many Americans for the benefit of others -- a voter bock, this is not Patriotic. Worse, it is done not from the heart -- but for the advancement of a political agenda, Socialism, Communism, whatever.

Socialism (Communism-lite) will never be Patriotic

worry, you do not think that a president should be someone who strongly supports our country and is willing to defend it at all cost?

O'Reilly doesn't think he's deliberately trying to harm the country, to which I respond that he's too naive. Nobody sits in Rev. Wright's pews for decades soaking up bigotry, racism, and anti-Americanism without agreeing with those values.

Well the left will tell you Bill O'Reilly is never right so I'd say the jury is out on that one.

I've always voted for a President who served their country in the Military and not some inner-city organizer.

I think he is too. Being misguided is not the same as being Anti-American. He truly thinks he is doing the right thing for our country, I will never doubt that. He just doesn't know how to go about it.
