Great observation on What Love of Country Means

This is a follow-up post to the stupid comments made by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani where he questioned the patriotism and love of country why Pres. Obama. I am quoting below and article written by William Galston in today's Wall Street Journal entitled "Giuliani Aside, Love of Country Means What?

"What does it mean to love one's country? This much is clear: it doesn't mean never criticizing one's country...Edmund Burke said it best: 'To make us love our country, our country ought to be lovely.' To the extent that our country beauty is flawed, we straighten that love by working to remove it."
