Obama seems to think that just what this country needs is a big fight over which party is more patriotic.

At least that’s the fight Obama is picking in his speech today in Detroit and reportedly in his upcoming speech to Congress and budget battle:

“We’re going to see if we’ve got some straight shooters in Congress. We’re going to see if Congressional Republicans will put country before party”

Is this really the battle the Democratic Party wants?

Do they have an exit strategy from a fight over patriotism, or at least a target date for withdrawal depending on conditions?

Please don’t all holler “bring it on” all at once.
