Another question from Chuckles

Charles asks the following question in the headline to one of his open threads.

Should America Have a President Who Associates with America-Haters?

I don't know Charles, what do you think?

....raises questions about U.S. policy, which has consistently supported the Saudi oil monarchy in spite of its refusal to cooperate with the United States in investigations of terrorist attacks against Americans.

From CJ himself:

"Sorry, but when someone says "GOD DAMN AMERICA" several times, shrieking at the top of his lungs, it's not even debatable whether he hates America."

I immediately thought of what a parent might say to a kid who just threw a baseball through the front window, and it kind of reminds me of what Al Franken said:

"We love America just as much as they do. But in a different way. You see, they love America the way a four-year-old loves her mommy. Liberals love America like grown-ups. To a four-year-old, everything Mommy does is wonderful and anyone who criticizes Mommy is bad. Grown-up love means actually understanding what you love, taking the good with the bad, and helping your loved one grow."

You see, America has thrown a few metaphorical baseballs through a few windows.
