Patriotism, Love of Country, and Nuance

I let a few days pass before commenting on this flap over what Rudy Giuliani said about President Obama's love of country, or Patriotism. When you wait a while, after news hits, often times better news comes along. News that can take the issue in any number of directions.
I recently posted that one of my perceptions of the differences between Republicans and Democrats is nuance. The two sides are really similar, the differences are just nuanced.
Take Patriotism, love country. Presumably all we who comment about national issues share a sense of Patriotism. I'd even go as far as to say that people who run for high office share a sense of Patriotism too.
Some may say I'm treading on thin ice here, making an ass out of u and me. If the comments of some of these erstwhile high office holders are correct, then I'm wrong. My apologies.
Its much like what the Democrats used to say about Bush, "He doesn't care."
How do we know these things anyways? Who can get into the head of another person, especially into the head of someone you don't know intimately and ascertain their disposition accurately?
I know I can't. Hell, I can't even figure out what it is I care about deeply often times.
Its been reported that Giuliani has received death threats!
