KEEP IT PITHY AND WITH A TOUCH OF GENTLENESS.
I know a few of you will find this completely unoriginal, but I can't help but not post on this.
Really, has Michelle Obama never been prouder of her country? Like on 9/11, was she ashamed of our country? Was she one of those who felt we brought the terrorist attack on ourselves? And like John Podhoretz said in this article, she became an adult in 1982. The Cold War ended during her adulthood, welfare increased, the economy grew...Really? She's never been more proud?
It's not like I ever mis-speak. I have a tendency to exaggerate, but I'm not a lawyer with double-Ivy League degrees like Mrs. Obama. Anyways, I'm perplexed and not a little concerned.
The troubling thing about this, for me, is that it shows a bit of narcissism. Like she couldn't possibly be proud of America unless the people loved her and her husband. I am so tired of politicians acting like saviors and the means of saving is the government. It's not true! The government can not give you happiness and success and the Obamas will not save you from decisions, whether good or bad. Arghhhh!
