#ObamaLovesAmerica….why this hashtag speaks volumes

I saw this hashtag on Twitter and thought why would this be trending? I knew that “America’s Mayor” Giuilani had made the statement that the president did not love this country. When the president ran for office in 2008 he was called a terrorist, a secret Muslim and his citizenship was even questioned. The right has this assault of branding the president as “other”. No other president has been painted with brush. Sure all presidents are criticized, but their love of country is not questioned. We assume that if you yearn to lead this country than it is a safe bet that you love the country. How should the president show his love. Should he use the term “Muslim extremists”, will that show his All American credentials? Maybe if he stopped saying things like “if I had a son he would look like Trayvon”. Maybe if he stopped trying to engage young people by taking a selfie in the Oval Office he might not be viewed as “ghetto.” Yes all of these things added up might make him suspect…He might be the leader of the country who does love this country and it sad to see that we need a hashtag to prove it.

    Actually Giuiliani made the statement that he does not BELIEVE the president loves this country. That’s a significant difference. His beliefs are based upon his observations of Obama and his actions in office. If Guiliani said, “Obama DOES NOT LOVE THIS COUNTRY” that would be a different matter. He’d have to show some proof for such a statement.

    Of course, people are shocked, shocked! that Giuiliani would say such a thing. I’m waiting for him to be called a racist for daring to speak his mind. Oh, too late, it happened a microsecond after the mayor’s comments became public.
