Which Americans hate Amercia?

Many doctrinaire Republicans think Democrats--from Obama on down--hate America. Many doctrinaire Democrats think the same the other way.

In both cases, they're right and they're wrong. Most Americans, Left and Right, say they love their country. The trick is that both identify "their country" as their ideal of this country and those who share that ideal, not this actual country and its actual citizens, warts and all.
