Michelle Obama steps on another rhetorical landmine

After telling me last week that I need to elect her husband to the presidency so he can fix my broken soul, Michelle Obama this week let everyone just exactly how she feels about the good ol' US of A.

Speaking to a crowd in Wisconsin, Mrs. Obama said the following:
People in this country are ready for change and hungry for a different kind of politics and … for the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.... (Chanman's emphasis)
This graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Law School, this woman who was 16 when the U.S. Olympic Hockey Team defeated the Soviets, who was 25 when the Berlin Wall came down, who was 27 when the U.S. won the Gulf War, who was 37 when flags were flying everywhere in the aftermath of September 11, 2001 is now finally proud of her country because the Democrats seem poised to nominate her husband. Michelle Obama was born the very same year that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was signed into law. During the ensuing 44 years, she has had a front-row seat to history as she has witnessed the erasing of color barriers and the enormously increased opportunities for blacks in this country, and yet, she is only now proud of this country because her husband is in the running for President. What a sickening statement to make.

Yes, yes, Mrs. Obama has already attempted to clarify her remarks, but I suggest you re-read her original statement, and she makes it pretty clear how she feels. Me thinks Mrs. Obama's time at her two prestigious Alma Maters was spent absorbing leftist anti-American drivel from her professors.

Good Day to You, Sir

And that simply reaffirms my opposition to anyone with a D next to their name this November when I vote for President...

For the first time?

Aw Come On!
