Two weeks ago former NYC Mayor Rudy Guiliani took a lot of heat from the media when he said President Obama doesn't love America during a fundraiser for Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. It turns out, many Americans agree with Guiliani's assessment.
According to a new Fox News poll, the vast majority of Americans believe the United States is the greatest country in the world, but a smaller majority believe President Obama feels the same way.
The new poll also finds the numbers saying Obama is patriotic, honest or a strong leader have all declined in the past few years.
More Americans feel they love the United States than think Obama does: 83 percent think the U.S. is the greatest country in the world. Just 64 percent believe Obama feels the same way.
Overall, 54 percent of voters say Obama is patriotic, yet thats down from 60 percent who felt that way in 2011. Again, party identification matters: the number of Republicans today who think the president is patriotic is down six percentage points from 2011, among independents its down four points and for Democrats its down one.
The poll shows 42 percent of voters nationally think there are legitimate reasons to doubt whether Obama loves America. That includes 66 percent of Republicans, 42 percent of independents and 17 percent of Democrats.
Further, the poll found a majority of Americans do not believe President Obama is honest.
Fewer voters than ever before see Obama as honest: a record-low 43 percent. And for the first time since 2007, a majority, 54 percent, disagrees that the president is honest.
America was always the greatest country on Earth until the Kenyan came along. Now it’s just another third world sewer. But hey! Evil whitey isn’t the majority anymore and after, all, isn’t that all that matters?
Obama isn’t just “not patriotic” ... he’s the proverbial “enemy within”.
Some people require a bat over the head before they are able to wake up. I guess better late than never, but a heck of a lot of damage has been done. The thing is one didn’t have to be a genius to see what this man was about in 2004—2006 when he first started to get a lot of attention. The info of his murky/shady past was definitely there in 2008. How dumb and/or asleep were these people? Scary.
Anyone with even the most rudimentary knowledge of his upbringing could not possibly believe that he does.
How dumb are these people? Have you watched Jesse Watters on Bill O’R’s show lately? These idiot college-age people are eligible to vote.
When I was young, 21 year olds knew a lot about US history and world events. Now they often do not know the name of their own senators or the current VP.
I am beginning to think that voters need to pass a literacy test before getting a voter card ID.
Obama may be patriotic. Regardless of where he was born, it is quite possible that he considers Kenya or Indonesia home and wants to make America more like the country he loves patriotically with all his tiny little heart.
But, I suppose hope springs eternal. No doubt there were those in the NAZI that convinced themselves that at any moment, the SS guards would open the gate and let them out.
The headline is misleading. It should have read: “No Americans Believe Obama is Patriotic”
There shouldn’t be anyone except black liberals who only see color and nothing else.
