    I was thinking  of how patriotism is so important when we pick a leader in America .  So I went into Google images looking for Pres. Obama's  displays of patriotism .   I mean certainly , even in  opposing ideology ,  a controversial leader loves his country right ?  .............  I mean ......right ?


    This is all I got .

        That's exactly what I thought after reading the first few comments.

    I believe a US President's love of country should be a 10 out of a scale of 1-10.

      I agree ,    This really began by my looking at Google images  at past presidents holding  or otherwise  showing love of flag .    I believe Obama is an opportunist ,  a user of America  and a lover of the world stage , An elitist  social disorganizer ,  and a divisive , activist  destructionist .

        Yeah, because the number of flag-waving photo ops on the internet is a true measure of a man's character.

      "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

      Obama wrote that in his book. 
      Has he ever said he would stand with Americans?

        No, Obama did not write that in his book.  Did Alex Jones tell you that?  Or was it Breitbart's joke of a website?  As you have repeatedly stated you seek the truth and want only the truth, here is the actual quote.  Note, he is referring to Americans, which answers your question, "Has he ever said he would stand with Americans?"

        Actual quote from "The Audacity of Hope" [pg. 261]: Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.

          And they're going to ignore it, and keep repeating their lies... Cause they don't care for facts or truth.
          No matter how many times they mention god, they're just political fanatics.

            Colorfulone sincerely believes she is a truth seeker, yet continues to promulgate falsehoods from her "sources" even after they are shown to be untrustworthy. This is the right-wing bubble that tesults in someone like Trump being selected to represent them. The ultimste con man, conning the easily conned who already exist in a disinformation bubble.

            I am weary of them inflicting the likes of Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin, and Donald Trump upon us. I am sick and disgusted that 40% of the electorate is too uneducated and misinformed to see these charlatans for what they are. I am tired of correcting their stupid statements.

            Okay, enough ranting. I didn't iintend to go that far but I really don't feel like taking it back.

              You really are delusional aren't you ?    While The voters on the right broke ranks and voted an outsider Trump out of seventeen candidates , WIN OR LOSE ,   At least the right did something about breaking the cycles of political  game players in congress !!!!!

              While you've accomplished what? -   Re-nominate the USUAL political do nothing in Another Clinton  ,

              Leaving Sanders political independence bleeding along  the way ?

              How do you really like the "Feel the burn ",  Hillary ?

              Oh yea , you were a government  employee weren't you .

      Chuck Norris says if they reellect Obama, their will be 1000 years of darkness.

      If America military dose not stop using nuclear weapons, this can come true.

      Today Chucky announced across America, he wants criminal treasons charges on Obama.

      Why not all of them?

            There you go.   I love listening to people who personally know Chuck Norris talk about him with so much love and genuine respect that he must certainly deserve.  Chuck is a man's man, and a great roll model for boys.

          Chuck Norris was a professional world middleweight Karate champion.   He is a legend.  Remember, only Chuck Norris can slam a revolving door. 

          Actually the man is a true patriot, he is very knowledgeable about politics, and intelligently expresses himself on important issues.  He does not have Hollywood written on his back.  Chuck would make a great president, but I'm not sure he would be willing to die for that office.  However, he has produced some movies that weren't politically correct that he was willing to die for.   Chuck has exposed things about Hillary Clinton lately and been right-on, so he is willing to die to stop her from getting into the WH.  He is on top of things politically, I am impressed with articles he writes as well.  He is very intelligent, and a super great guy!

            Seriously a 1000 years of darkness, that is how long Satan has not talked to God.

            Maybe 10 years tops, that is when I will come back from Bolivia, if the radiations is cleaned up.

            Oh my gosh. A karate champion and a guy who can slam a revolving door. Certainly, qualities which should cause us to stop and listen to his opinions on politics.



            Well, I wouldn't say I wouldn't vote for Chuck Norris if he ran for president but I wouldn't count his karate championship or ability to slam revolving doors as qualifications for the office. I kind of expect more from someone aspiring to that office.

              Chuck Norris said he would be running mate if Ron Paul wins President.

              Chuck said Ron Paul would decide if his stuff was honest or not. Then Chuck would take the ones that were not honest and knock them out with a chock hold.

            Excuse me for interrupting, but you said Obama wrote in his book: "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction". The link posted to a reliable source showed he didn't. I'm sure you were just about to post a correction, but were so overcome with excitement at the thought of Mr. Norris' patriotism that you had no choice but to to lavish your abundant praise on him immediately, forgetting all about your correction in the process.

            So here's a helpful reminder. The source with the accurate information can be found here, and includes the words that have been falsely quoted, which you will no doubt want to include in your correction.

            No need to thank me.

              Still no correction. No matter. I know she is a truth seeker, because she has repeatedly said so.

              Kinda like I know Trump is the ONLY ONE who can fix all the terrible problems in America. I know because he told me. On TV no less.

      "As if President Obama hasn’t made enough wrong moves, now, he’s going to finish his presidency casting a wide net of amnesty and carting illegals into every American community with virtually no regard for safety in doing so. But he does have one thing in mind for certain: creating new voters in every state to ensure a 2016 win for the Democratic Party presidential nominee.

      First, the Department of Homeland Security, or DHS, sent letters to all 9,000,000 green-card holders urging them to naturalize prior to the 2016 election.

      PJ Media reported how it “obtained an internal ‘Dear Colleague’ letter written by Leon Rodriguez, the ‘director and co-chair of the Task Force on New Americans.’ The letter refers to a White House report called ‘Strengthening Communities by Welcoming All Residents.’” PJM added: “Leon Rodriguez has a tainted history – not only was he a central player in the radicalization of Eric Holder’s Civil Rights Division, he also ‘undertook a purportedly illegal search‘ of a government employee’s computer in Montgomery County, Maryland. (Messy details are at the Washington Post.)”

      The Rodriguez’s letter states: “This report outlines an immigrant integration plan that will advance our nation’s global competitiveness and ensure that the people who live in this country can fully participate in their communities.”

      Of course, “fully participate” is code for granting voting rights and specifically re-electing a Democrat president.

      Their strategy is to “seed your communities” with at least 70,000 refugees a year, including Iraqis, Burmese, Bhutanese, Somalis, Cubans, Syrians and others. And the numbers of Syrians, mostly Muslim, will surpass them all.

      It’s difficult to believe that a single president could make more international Middle East fiascos in a few short years: miscalculating the Arab spring, empowering the Muslim brotherhood in Egypt, failing to protect Americans in Benghazi, enabling ISIS through the complete withdraw of troops from Iraq, remaining aloof to our ally Israel, and then being calloused and obtuse with persecuted Coptic Christians. Indeed, as I just wrote in a former column, Obama has literally helped build the environment for the Apocalypse, as defined by both Muslims and Christians."
