Patriotism
"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, 26th President of the United States

Also last of the usefully quotable presidents. Granted, you can quote Shrub all day... someone made a book of all his quotes... and is working on a second one. "The Complete Bushisims" Go look it up on www.amazon.com
