The Boston Globe asks the right question:
So what did Michelle Obama think of the United States before her husband decided he wanted to run the place?
“For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country,” she told a Milwaukee crowd today, “because it feels like hope is making a comeback.”
Let me see, two Ivy League educations, freedom to raise your family, a rise in the U.S. Senate and a run for the White House and only now are you proud of this country? I bet Michelle is one of those sisters that has more pride in her African heritage than the fact that she is an American.
Look at what this country has done for her, the advantages that she has had as an American citizen, that she has obviously taken for granted... Until now?
What a gaffe! What a blunder. What a perfect mirror to the soul of an ingrate.
Michelle Obama, do your husband a favor and shut the hell up!
