Thank Goodness, Michelle Obama Is FINALLY Proud Of Her Country!

... Because there's never been anything during her adult life to be proud of until now?

"Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama (born January 17, 1964) is an American lawyer and the wife of Illinois senator Barack Obama who is a candidate for the 2008 Democratic Party nomination for United States President. She was born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, Illinois and then educated at Princeton University and Harvard Law School. She returned to Chicago after completing her formal education to work for the law firm Sidley Austin, on the staff of the Mayor of Chicago Richard M. Daley, and for the University of Chicago and the University of Chicago Hospitals. She is the sister of Craig Robinson. She met Barack while working for Sidley Austin."

Hm. Princeton, Harvard Law, prestigious Chicago law firm.

Nothing to be proud of there?

Her brother is the basketball coach at Brown.

No pride there?

"She held public sector positions in the Chicago city government as an Assistant to the Mayor and Assistant Commissioner of Planning and Development. In 1993, she became Executive Director for the Chicago office of Public Allies, a non-profit organization encouraging young people to work on social issues in nonprofit groups and government agencies."

Nothing to be proud of?

"In 1996, Obama served as the Associate Dean of Student Services at the University of Chicago, where she developed the University's Community Service Center. In 2002, she began working for the University of Chicago Hospitals, first as executive director for community affairs and, beginning May, 2005, as Vice President for Community and External Affairs."

No pride?

"According to the couple’s 2006 income tax return, Michelle's salary was $273,618 from the University of Chicago Hospitals, while he had a salary of $157,082 from the United States Senate. The total Obama income, however, was $991,296 including $51,200 she earned as a member of the board of directors of TreeHouse Foods (Wal-Mart), plus investments and royalties from his books."

No American pride there? What about basic pride in American women making real progress in an historically patriarchal society, Michelle?

"Asked in February 2008 whether she would support Hillary Clinton if she got the nomination, Michelle said "I'd have to think about that. I'd have to think about policies, her approach, her tone."

Despite her criticisms of Clinton during the 2008 campaign, when asked in 2004 which political spouse she admired, Obama cited Hillary Clinton, stating, "She is smart and gracious and everything she appears to be in public-someone who's managed to raise what appears to be a solid, grounded child."

On February 18 Michelle Obama declared that for the first time her adult life that she was proud of America. Some interpreted this as unpatriotic."

Michelle, ma belle...

Stuff it in a sock.

America isn't perfect, by any means. But damn.

Couldn't you find something to be proud of before now?
