Quote Of The Day: Lack Of Patriotism Is A Family Affair For The Obamas
“For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country, because it feels like hope is making a comeback.” — Michelle Obama
Let’s see, the wife has never been proud of her own country until her husband had a chance to be President and the husband opposes flag pins and putting his hand over his heart for the national anthem.
They’d make a great first couple….in Cuba. Maybe Barack can make some calls over there since I hear they have an opening at the top and if anybody needs “hope,” it’s the long suffering people of Cuba, not the citizens of the greatest nation the world has ever seen.
Update #1: Via my pal, Cassy Fiano, here’s Susan Sarandon,
Well, I’m going to back Obama. But I hope — I think that he, as a symbol, has really excited people, and he’s definitely confusing to everyone who really hates America for hating Muslims because a name like Obama and a black man, they’re probably going to go “Oh, wait a minute — What?” It’s kind of like when you’re out on the line for freedom to have an abortion and you’re incredibly pregnant. They just can’t quite figure it out.
So I think he definitely has convinced people that he stands for change and for hope, and I can’t wait to see what he stands for.
That last sentence is probably the best sum up of the entire Obama campaign that I have ever seen,
So I think (Barack Obama) definitely has convinced people that he stands for change and for hope, and I can’t wait to see what he stands for.
