I have been watching MSNBC for about 2.5 hours now and I keep hearing crap over and over about this Michelle Obama controversy.
Number one- these claims that she is not patriotic are bull shit
Number two- the quote is taken out of context
Number three- free speech, get over it
View for yourself:
"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. And I have been desperate to see our country moving in that direction and just not feeling so alone in my frustration and disappointment. I've seen people who are hungry to be unified around some basic common issues, and it's made me proud."
The Controversy: for the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country.
There are no anti patriot implications in this statement. She was saying that the possibility for change is finally tangible. Thats it, and there is nothing wrong with that. And even if what she did say had even a drop of hesitance in being proud of this country she would still be correct. I am not proud of America. But, I am patriotic because I am proud of what this country has the potential to be. I like the values we claim to have, but clearly we have not met those claims. Its no cake walk being a Black Woman in this Country, I know. And one would have to be completely to deluded to think that the history of this country is solely one of valor and freedom. Please. So I think Pat Buchanan and Lady McCain and everyone else needs to calm down and focus. Let's leave the spouses out of this because if we really wanted to talk about it Bill is not doing grand things for Hillary. So let the candidates stand on their own merits and not the comments on their love ones.
Focus- lets keep our eyes on the prize of getting my main man, Barack O in the white house!
Nadar is back in the ring to ruin the Democrats chances of electing either candidate to the White House.
Nay Dar on the Ray Dar
While this may not be his intention, face it Republicans, as scummy and evil as they may be, are at the very least consistant, or atleast that is what the past has shown.
Dems- eh not so much. And then there are the Indie votes. I am a liberal- not a democrat- but realistically speaking i want my voice heard in the primary thus I am registered with the asses.
I digress. The Indie vote is an important vote because the are usually the left of the left, and while they don't like either major party they tend to loath dems a little less than the GOP. Which puts the Dems at some small semblance of an advantage. And this year with out "historic" race going on, perhaps the indie vote could find a glimmer of indentification on issues with these candidate.
Point Blank- Nader gets indie vote- Grand Ol' Jerks the majority- Obama and Hillary go back to the senate, and we endure another four years at the mercy of the republicans. The worst of it all is that itd be McCain-- the one who wants to stay in Iraq um..forever.
I'll take something from my fellow blogger mike glenwick -- (check his blog at www.michaelglenwick.com) And write a letter to Nader - firstname.lastname@example.org
my letter- concise-
You're cool and all...
Don't be a tool!

My blurb on a NY Observer Article
TwentySomething (not verified) says:
The Clinton campaign is unraveling. That is abundantly clear, but the way to even attempt salvation is not by taking low and petty blows at Obama, it just makes a bad situation worse. Simply going back to the basics and articulating her platform would allow her to at least finish this race with some dignity and allow for her points to be made and effective no matter who ultimately implements them. Let me state that I do not think that this conflict is bad for the party, it is in fact rejuvenating it, by making politics some what entertaining. However, for the sake of seeming unified come general election time, there needs to be a fair and noble fight with the issues plaguing this country at the fore front..Not SNL skits and mockery. That way we can all kiss and make up come November.
And to RobX- Is there any such thing as objective news? Everyone has an agenda, take what you hear with a grain of salt, and get over it.
Yeah- I made up the "TwentySomething" Alias for that article but I kind of like it..I am in fact twenty..and soon the something will come into play.
Expanation: RobX- as you will see if you goto the article commented that the observer columnist for this particular article lacked journalistic integrity and to him I responded above.
