Big props to “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani for having the courage to call out Barack Obama by and questioning his love for America. Last I checked there was something called a constitutional right to free speech in this country, and Obama’s actions over the term of his presidency speak much louder than any words he could say.

Which, given his track record, would all be lies anyways.

And Hot Air’s Noah Rothman is right to call out the media for its selective outrage over someone having the indecency to even question President Progressive’s loyalties and motives in any way:

The press did not recoil in horror when former Vice President Al Gore screamed that George W. Bush “betrayed” the country. Nor did they feign outrage when Obama accused the 43rd President of the United States of being “unpatriotic” because he increased the debt at a pace that the 44th President of the United States would rapidly eclipse. And why would they? It’s not their place to defend the president’s reputation – he is, after all, merely a temporary civilian custodian of one branch of our republican government. Americans have a rather grand tradition of besmirching the character of our presidents, and it is a healthy and cherished one. By “civility,” the press really means deference and observance of subjectively assessed standards of decorum. That’s not merely bias, its servility.

…and of course, if you even dare to look at the Obamas in any way other than outright deference and leg-tingling adoration you must be a racist.

I agree with Rudy Giuliani. I don’t believe Barack Obama loves or respects America. When he views this country’s history he’s, as Kevin Williamson writes in National Review Online, he does it through the eyes of a radical socialist who sees America place in history as being achieved at the expense and exploitation of everyone else.

Does Barack Obama like America? The people around him certainly seem to have their reservations. Michelle Obama said — twice, at separate campaign events — that her husband’s ascending to the presidency meant that “for the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m really proud of my country.” She was in her mid 40s at the time, her “adult lifetime” having spanned decades during which she could not be “really proud” of her country. Barack Obama spent years in the Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s church as the churchman fulminated: “God Damn America!” The Reverend Wright’s infamous “God Damn America!” sermon charges the country with a litany of abuses: slavery, mistreatment of the Indians, “treating citizens as less than human,” etc. A less raving version of the same indictment can be found in the president’s own speeches and books. His social circle includes such figures as Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn, who expressed their love of country by participating in a murderous terrorist campaign against it.

Does Barack Obama love his country? Call me a rube for saying so, but it’s a fair question.

And Williamson is right on target when he writes, why devote your entire presidency to “transforming” the country into something else if you love it?

Barack Obama’s actions from the very start of his presidency are not the actions of someone who loves this country and what it stands for. I’m not talking about blind wave-the-flag-and-shoot-off-fireworks patriotism here. I’m talking about a love for this country for the unique freedoms and opportunities it offers as the best hope for the world while recognizing our imperfections and past failures. But not fixating on them and making them the entire focus of your transformative goals to the point where everything (especially the Constitution) has to be ripped up and started all over again from scratch.

The actions of Barack Obama during his time as President are not those of a loyal American or a patriot. He has lied, and continues to lie, to the American people repeatedly and brazenly in order to push his political agenda. He has consistently chosen the rights and interests of illegal aliens over American citizens. He has chosen the interests of other nations over this country’s. He continues to choose the interests of Muslims in the world at the expense of Christians and Jews. And, more than anything else, he chooses the interests of himself over all else.

And all the while, the national media stays silent, except to pummel those who have the courage to “speak truth to power” (to coin a progressive phrase).
