BUTTE, Mont. -- Barack Obama wants to make something clear: He loves America.
After a series of incidents that prompted questions about his patriotism, the Democratic presidential candidate is peppering speeches with explicit statements on his love of country.
"I love this country not because it's perfect but because we've always been able to move it closer to perfection," he told an audience in North Dakota.
And in Montana: "It's a country where ... I've seen ordinary Americans find justice, where I've seen progress made for working families who need leaders who are willing to stand up and fight for them. That is the country I love."
Obama also stirs crowds into a frenzy of cheering and clapping when he talks about treating military veterans with respect, of giving them the best possible equipment, of providing top-notch health care for the wounded.
"They have earned our respect," the Illinois senator exclaims.
Such patriotic statements could be an effort to reassure voters wondering about whether he truly loves the country.
First came questions about why he doesn't wear a flag lapel pin. Obama said he thinks true patriotism is demonstrated by a person's actions, not his lapel.

The hypnoiss he uses is that he makes it appear that he respects your position and sympathizes with your concerns even as he is taking away your freedom.
Obama wants to make clear that he loves America...unlike his wife and pastor and almost all of his relatives.
Obama can ‘reaffirm’ his patriotism all he wants. He will never convince me he does not hate this country.
Obama loves the USKKK of A.
When exactly did he affirm it, MSM?
He probably put his hand over his heart finally, but to G.. D.. America.
He makes Bill Clinton look like a patriot.
Methinks Hussein doth protest too much.
Go To Hell Barack!
There are some questions the msm will never ask him.
Why haven’t you visited the troops in A and Iraq?
Have you ever visited the wounded at Walter Reed?
Have you attended a funeral for a soldier, sailor or marine?
I think that Obama may have hit a good theme here. This kind of talk is what got Reagan elected.
That picture about says it all.
“I love this country...”
Now if we can only change it because it’s so terrible.
that second cartoon is PRICELESS!!!
Quote of the Week - maybe the Century!
“My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you’ll join with me as we try to change it.”
— Barack Obama
Guess this is flying around the internet today, I got it this morning, haven’t had a chance to check if BHO said this, but it’s pretty funny.
Yep it is the new meme ... blah blah I didn’t know about redzko... blah.. blah.. I didn’t know about Wright... blah blah ..I didn’t know about my wifes anti-Americanism... blah blah... I didn’t know it would be bad for my daughters to go to TUCC.... blah blah... I didn’t know... Its all Bush’s fault... America sucks if I am not the President.... Vote for my or you are a racist, typical white scum bag bigot, Conservative.
I love this country not because it’s perfect but because we’ve always been able to move it closer to perfection. When I am elected I will make it finally prefect by installing sharia law and invalidating the Constitution.
