What Does Anti-American Mean?

CHRIS MATTHEWS: So you believe that Barack Obama may have anti-American views?

BACHMANN: Absolutely. I’m very concerned he may have anti-American views. Also, in her Hardball appearance, Bachmann said, “The news media should do a penetrating exposé” into the “views of the people in Congress and find out if they’re pro-America or anti-America.”

I’ve often felt, in a glib moment, that Bush and Cheney are "anti-American" because their policies have been so hurtful to this nation. But the more I consider it, the more I know it’s not true. They’re Americans and we all must--if we are to have a nation that doesn’t descend into fear and hate--assume first that they love their nation. They may be bad actors, their behavior may be destructive, but that doesn’t make them anti-American.
