That's what he's implying here: that one of the parties needs to prove their patriotism. And we know it's not Democrats.
Democrats believe in the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the separation of powers, an independent judiciary, not using our armed forces as political props and throwing their lives away for nothing, the diversity and civil rights of all Americans, and so much more.
Yes, it's clearly the Republicans Bush must be talking about. How sad for Republicans.
"My attitude about this is that there is a great opportunity for us to show the country that Republicans and Democrats are equally as patriotic and equally concerned about the future, and that we can work together," said Bush...Why doesn't George Bush think Republicans love America?
