Patriotism means to stand by the country.  It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official, save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country.  It is patriotic to support him insofar as he efficiently serves the country.  It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country.  In either event, it is unpatriotic not to tell the truth, whether about the president or anyone else.
  —  Theodore Roosevelt
(A Republican President known as “The Trust Buster” because he championed the breakup of monopolies.)
[This is the problem I have with the modern “Tea-Party” led Republican Party: they profess patriotism, yet are unable to tell the truth.  The judgment of history will be far kinder to President Obama than it will be to a Tea-Party demented (I mean dominated) GOP.  —  KMAB]

To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.

Today I was listening to the Randi Rhoades Show on the radio on the drive home from work.  She was reading a speech by a former Republican President – Teddy Roosevelt titled:  “The New Nationalism“.
When I got home, I looked up the speech and also found another:  “A Square Deal“.
I only wish we had Republicans today like this…
The following is a quote from one of the speeches – please go check out the links to the speeches in full.
I speak of the men of the past partly that they may be honored by our praise of them, but more that they may serve as examples for the future.
 —  Theodore Roosevelt
