Michelle Obama Loves The United States

now that her husband is running (from Breitbart, via Patterico’s Pontifications)

“What we have learned over this year is that hope is making a comeback. It is making a comeback and let me tell you something, For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country. And not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change. I have been desperate to see our country moving in that direction and just not feeling so alone in my frustration and disappointment. I have seen people who are hungry to be unified around some basic common issues. It has made me proud.”

Wonderful. In true Progressive fashion, love of country only comes with strings attached. Like most Progressives, she is only happy that there is a potential for a radical change in this country.

Can I question her patriotism yet? She wants to be first lady, and she has never been proud of her country. How sad.

Susan Madrak at the Huffington Post understands how bad that comment really is.

Kathryn Jean Lopez at National Review

The wife of a candidate who refuses to wear an American flag lapel pin, regularly slouches insouciantly during the playing of the Star Spangled Banner and tepidly comments that posters of Che Guevara and the Communist Cuban flag  hanging at his campaign offices are “inappropriate” might want to consider whether her remarks might feed a rather unappealing narrative regarding the degree of the Senator’s, um, patriotic fervor.

    She says, “for the first time in my adult life I am really proud of my country”!?!? What the… It just goes to show you how the looney left just doesn’t appreciate all this country gives them. I have been proud of this country ALL my adult life. Especially after serving in the military and seeing, first hand, how the rest of the world has to live.

    Picking on the spouse now, Teach ?

  3. They sure do not seem to like America, do they, boomer?

    I notice that you cannot defend her, John. I also remember that the left still attacks Bush’s wife and kids, Cheney’s wife and kids, and spouses and kids of other republicans. Do you agree with those assaults on them, john?

    And, yes, I will attack her, as she obviously hates America.
