Proud for the FIRST TIME? !
I have not always been proud of what some people have done. What some politicians have done. What some ethnic groups have done.
But I have been proud of my country because it has always strived to be better. And it has succeeded in getting better and better and better.
I am proud of that.
But Michelle Obama says she's only proud now. Just listen.
Her "proud for the forst time in my adult life" phrase insults every person -- black, white, brown, yellow, purple, rainbow -- who believes in the ideals of this country and who have tried to make the reality equal to the ideals.
I am proud of my country.
Ms. Obama should be ashamed of hers words.
There will be spin to come about how it was a "slip of the tongue," and that she really didn;t mean it that way. I don't believe that. Watch, listen and make up your own mind.
