That is silly and childish.

Being an American means I don't have to feel one way or the other about a damned thing. If I want to "not like the way things turned out" I will, and I am totally free to do so and to say so.

That is the very essence of what it means to be American...

And if you don't like that things turned out that way, you can.... well, you know.
