Obama: I Will Never Question Others' Patriotism
Obama sought to reassure voters about his commitment to the country, choosing the aptly named town of Independence as his backdrop. "I have found, for the first time, my patriotism challenged — at times as a result of my own carelessness, more often as a result of the desire by some to score political points and raise fears about who I am and what I stand for. "I will never question the patriotism of others in this campaign. And I will not stand idly by when I hear others question mine."
