Michelle O’Bama is Proud
Posted by Ryan on February 19, 2008
Michelle O’Bama stepped in it today, very much like Theresa Heinz used to, by not thinking before she spoke. Hot Air discusses the basic conservative problem with Michelle saying:
“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.”
That’s great. Not only does Barry feel “hope,” but his wife is “proud.” What a wonder-couple! I’m waiting for Barry to start walking on water (or claiming that we can all do it with “hope”). I think that this is mostly media-driven hype and scrutiny, where a candidate’s wife steps into some trouble with the opposition like John Kerry’s
husband wife used to all the time.
Sure, I agree that it’s narcissistic, not very thoughtful, a little grandiose, and sad if true, but it’s her prerogative. And if the press wants to make a big deal about this then let them… I just wish they’d spend a little more time on Barry’s penchant towards socialism, his gross inexperience in the War on Terror, and racially insensitive radical religious views of Barry’s minister.
