To dishonor a President by not watching a speech seems to me very, very unpatriotic.

Very anti-American! The more the right wing says, the more afraid of them I am becoming- it is their perception and hate for the leader of our country that seems more like rebels in third world countries.

This is deja vu growing up in the South during the 60's- the fear of African Americans caused people in my neighborhoods to make comments just like those I see posted on this blog.
