Loves America First

A recent caller to a radio talk show nailed it when he identified a key difference between McCain and Obama. The caller was an immigrant and a Democrat who is going to vote for McCain. He said that the difference between McCain and Obama was that McCain loved America first. This represents a very perceptive view on the part of an individual who has seen through the hype.

Obama loves America, but there is a whole list of things he loves more than America (himself, European values, approval from the international community, etc.) As has become clear in speech after speech, Obama has shown that he places many things above his love for America and its values. America seems like a lonely stepsister in Obama's pantheon of love interests.

We need a President whose first love is his country, not his image in the mirror or the opinions of the international community.
