So is the only way for an American to avoid hating America is to never criticise it?


To some people and in some parts of the country, yes. It's really sad. I hear this from other American Expats. If they mention anything negative about America or gush a little bit about the UK, their American family retorts back hating America type statements.

No, it's actually curiosity as to why he would hide his past, and lie about it.

not two things I want in a president.


I don't understand how you can say that and think Palin is great.


And I still don't understand how you equate the two. What has Palin hidden about her past?

And it's really quite irrelevant in discussing Obama.

As for Tosh's statement, critisizing America is fine. Actively seeking hatred of it to promote a racial agenda is not.
