Michelle Obama — Loose Cannon of Honesty

“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.”
— Michelle Obama

Michelle Malkin has the video and this great observation,

I believe it was Michael Kinsley who quipped that a gaffe is when a politician tells the truth. In this case, it’s what happens when a Democrat politician’s wife says what a significant portion of the party’s base really believes.

You’ll note the immediate applause after she delivers the line.


Right on. Rich, successful Michelle Obama has never in her adult life been proud of the United States of America…until now. No wonder Obama is so popular among Democrats: this narcissistic, victimized, rich crybaby mentality sums up the party!

Victor Davis Hanson nailed it as well:

I wrote not long ago that Michelle Obama is a loose cannon, and I fear that her latest is not her last. I would have thought that two Ivy-League degrees, a joint income of about a million dollars, exclusive private schools for the kids, and a nice home in the suburbs were not so bad and might suggest that hope had made a comeback well before Barack’s presidential run.

Were Democrats fleeing the self-absorption of the Billary power couple of two Yale-educated lawyers — only to embrace the self-absorption of a power-couple of two Harvard-educated lawyers? Or was it a Yale versus Harvard Law School intramural thing all along?

Democrat — guilt and stupidity rolled into one.
