I agree with the sentiment, but would point out that in the US, there is also a paradox where bring patriotic may mean opposing the will of the nation.

He was our first Progressive president, though he didn't do a fraction of the damage Wilson did.

Yea, Wilson has a list of things I don’t like, first and foremost is the Sedition Act.

One of my favorite quotes, incidentally from one of my favorite presidents.

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

I agree, although I'm not patriotic (for any country). Still a good quote!

So now all presidents are unpatriotic. I thought so because they all lied.

Especially Mr O., telling America he would not give Iran access to the United States financial system, but then he goes and does it.
