What does Barrack Obama think of someone who overlooks racist remarks made by friends and associates, rather than speaking out in opposition? Is that person right on racism? Well, Obama overlooked (for decades) the unpatriotic remarks and actions of his friends and associates (to say nothing of his WIFE), rather than speaking out in opposition. How then is Obama not only right on patriotism, but also the guest lecturer, self-appointed to teach the rest of us the lessons of patriotism? Maybe Obama would do better to go on a "listening tour," to let average Americans, who are not so "conflicted" about patriotism, explain the concept to Obama.
