@OldOllie:
Looks like what you`re calling "being a liberal bigot" is a dislike for conservative bigotry. I expect better from you, having read other comments you`ve made. Yes, it would be nice to see our colors more but, no, it wasn`t worth more than 4 minutes of broadcast time.

"who even cares about fox news?"

"Oh, I don`t know...only about three times as many people as watch CNN and MSNBC combined!"

Seeing that cable news is arguably the worst thing to happen to America I wouldn`t be proud of those numbers. They get the most ratings because they are masters of sensationalism. News is boring. It shouldn`t be addictive or make you hate half of your country. I feel sorry for people who still watch Fox News or NBC News (MSNBC).

...And complaining how they don`t have enough flag colour in them, after which she says "So how do we show our patriotism at the games?" So clearly she identifies uniforms with patriotism, not medals, sportsmanship, fan turnout etc. The only bigot here is you.

"We are a very nationalistic nation..."

Couldn`t have said it better myself. I like his use of the word "nationalistic" instead of "patriotic."

@earplay What you call "exceptionalism," I call being a liberal bigot.

@jtrebowski Did you even listen to the discussion? They weren`t whining or complaining that we`re not patriotic enough. The were merely making factual observations regarding the uniforms of the athletes today compared to those in earlier Olympics.

Only a Fox-hating liberal bigot could read anything else into it.

Leave it to FOX. Amazing athletes from all over the US spend their lives hoping to represent the US in the Olympics. Dedicating all their hard work, all their struggle, all their success to their country.

What does FOX think of this? "Eeeeh, that swimsuit didnt have enough red, white and blue. How disgraceful."

@drawnam61 - And have you noticed how few medals the Americans and Russians win since drug testing took off.

Are you actually serious? Go check the US medal count moron. Were going to be on pace for winning the most gold and total.

Beautiful beautiful Amercia, the further right you allow clowns like this to take you, the less of a great nation you become and more of a conference of village idiots. Your Athletes are doing brilliantly and being brilliantly supported by the Americans whove made the trip to London (unlike these bozos).What a non-discussion of a non-story. Your athletes have earned their places and their medals by their OUTSTANDING efforts - if that isn`t enough, hold a rally, don`t watch the olympics.

OldOllie: "I found nothing in this discussion that could possibly offend anyone other than a Fox-hating liberal bigot."

Then you`ve missed the point of my post entirely. Our athletes have worked hard to proudly represent our country, and they`ve done so in a stellar way. Many average citizens flew over there to cheer and support them. Millions of Americans gather around tv`s in bars and in their homes every day to cheer our athletes on, and all Fox "News" can do is claim that we`re not patriotic enough. patriotism has nothing to do with what you wear, or how hard you wave those little flags. It`s about loving our country and loving our citizens, which is something you`ve shown very little inclination of doing.

@Bealzebubble - It was just the English complaining that there wasn`t enough red in them really. There`s generally plenty blue, which is fine by me, as a Scot.

The British had the same debate that their uniforms weren`t Red, White and Blue enough. Maybe it`s just that those colours aren`t in fashion this year. NZ choose black and no other country has that colour.

@OldOllie I find my Fox-hating to be quite independent of my political views. I`m a perpetual advocate of fair and balanced, i.e. rational. This pesky attitude of mine keeps putting me at odds with Fox. I guess that`s my exceptionalism, whatever that is! He`s saying we`ve lost "that jingoistic feeling", thereby wrapping himself in ignorance of history as much as he wraps himself in the flag. I`ve heard wild foxes yelp, but never heard a fox whine as much as this Fox.

What I find amusing is how there is the obsession with patriotic colours. USA get red, whit and blue, which also comprise the Australian flag. So we get stuck with green and gold. Which is really green and yellow. Are you kidding me, it usually looks crap. Look at most of the Australian team outfits over the years, sucky is not a strong enough word. So it amuses me that they talk on length about this, because in Australia every Olympics usually has the media going on about how damn awful our athletes look, specifically because they are stuck with our team colours.

Uh oh, I guess the US needs another disaster like 9/11 to re-boost the Patriotism like it did back in 2001.

In case you missed that... We lost that jingoistic feeling. You know... your good old fashioned quality home grown jingoism.

"Jingoism is extreme patriotism in the form of aggressive foreign policy."

In Fox`s opinion, patriotism is all about how badly we want to destroy and dominate people who are not us. Simple as that. You aren`t other humans, you are enemies.

I doubt there are many sports fans here, but anyone remember the Chris Collinsworth interview of Kobe Bryant for the 08 olympics? I`m of the impression most olympic athletes regardless of their country feel the same way Bryant did/does while most political talking heads feel the same way Collinsworth openly expressed.

I`m afraid to say that...I kind of agree with this...personally I drating hate this year`s uniforms. Hardly any reference to our colors. However, I don`t think it`s the athlete`s fault, it`s the designer`s. But for this to be a major concern as Fox News is making it seem, it`s a bit petty. I for one am very proud of our country...maybe not our government, but certainly our country.

"Liberal whines about Fox News, again."

News Channels aren`t even monolithic, anyways. Shepard Smith is their main hard news guy and he`s not even conservative. He said on air "Republicans should not be on the wrong side of history" about the gay marriage debate. He also said "this is America, we don`t fuqing torture".

Don`t whine.
