This story illustrates a key difference between progressives and conservatives.
Lots of people on the right didn’t like Obama as a president, but they never stopped loving their country.
For late night host Stephen Colbert, his love of country apparently depends on whether or not he likes the president.
America made Colbert wealthy and famous, but that’s just not good enough.
He will even bash his country while traveling abroad.
Stephen Colbert in New Zealand: I’m Not Proud of My Country
CBS Late Show host Stephen Colbert admitted on his recent visit to New Zealand that he is no longer proud of his country.
Cycling through the capital of Wellington on a four-wheeled bicycle, Colbert asked two New Zealanders whether they feel proud of their country.
“Oh, yeah, love that,” one of them replies, to which Stephen Colbert responds: “I miss that feeling.”
The footage comes from Colbert’s recent visit to the South-Pacific nation, segments of which he is airing on his political charged talk show.

People have some thoughts for Stephen:
I’m proud of my country! I’m not proud of the political elite class that has decided they are entitled to both decide our elections and become wealthy by peddling the influence WE GAVE THEM. I don’t even consider many career politicians as Americans (Pelosi).

He’s free to leave anytime! If he needs help packing, I’m sure he would have plenty of help!

Well, Colbert is free to stay in New Zealand. He's part of the problem, anyway.

Why don’t you just stay in New Zealand?
