TEXAS, February 20, 2015 — When “America’s Mayor” Rudolph Giuliani declared that he didn’t believe President Obama truly loves America, he may have been saying what many Americans have already thought: Right or wrong, for the last six years, the President’s “love” of country has been in doubt.
Could it be that the need to fundamentally change America was taught to Obama from an early age by people who were biased against the notion of American exceptionalism?
Could he have been taught that America is the great Satan and all the world’s woes are a direct result of American aggression?
Have the people that he has surrounded himself with — from hate mongers like Jeremiah White to radicals like Bill Ayers — with their hateful influence and their disdain for America somehow embedded their lessons in his heart?
When you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas, or so the old saying goes.
Do only conservative Christian Americans wonder how Obama felt turning his back on the religion of his father, a religion that he so obviously loves and admires for a religion which would elevate his chances of a greater political future?
The memories and experiences of our youth have a great influence on the rest of our lives. Obama staid that the Muslim call to prayer is “the most beautiful sound” that he can remember — and it is beautiful.
However, an American patriot might make a different choice:

Which call does Obama hear? The call to America the Beautiful or the call to prayer?
I might be wrong. And I do believe in repentance, something I have to do hour by hour, for all sorts of dumb actions on my part. I am willing and able to repent for doubting the President’s love for America when I see him show at least some emotion when radical Islamists behead American citizens and other innocents.
I have seen a lot of presidents come and go in my life. Some were pre-occupied with other things other than running the country, but when Americans were attacked either from natural disasters or foreign terrorists, they (showed their love) for the American people, they rolled up their sleeves and went to work for the American people, but, sadly I only see a President who apologizes to the world for America’s misdeeds.
When the 21 Coptic Christians were murdered by ISIS, Obama never mentioned that they were Christians, as if it shouldn’t matter. To Americas who love their country and the Christian religion, it does matter. And while it may not be every American that it matters to, he is every American’s president.
Every American deserves his empathy — both the Muslim community from which three young men were senselessly killed last week, and whose people who have been targeted by ISIS across the Middle East. So to do the people of Israeli and the Jewish Community that has suffered at the hands of extremism in Europe deserve his empathy.
They deserve to be recognized.
America and the rest of the civilized world has been threatened by radical Islamists. In my way of thinking, it’s time for all those who love America and freedom of religion to stand up and be counted.
This includes the President of The United States of America. And I have to note, that with all the uproar over what is being said the President did not say, I have yet to see the onslaught of videos of the president professing his “love” for America beyond the canned words at the end of every speech, that may God Bless America.
America. We have our warts. Our skeletons.
But we are also a country that has flourished on the idea of faith, family and, yes, love. Not one faith over another. And we do have a right to know .. all of us .. where our President stands.
Mayor Giuliani just asked. Maybe it is time for an answer.
