The games continue on the right:
Democratic Sen. Barack Obama sought Tuesday to clarify his wife’s statement that she is proud of the U.S. “for the first time in my adult life.” He said her newfound pride is about the political system and was not meant to disparage her country.
He commented after Cindy McCain, wife of Republican presidential candidate John McCain, made a veiled reference to Michelle Obama’s recent remarks.
Cindy McCain told a Wisconsin rally on Tuesday: “I’m proud of my country, I don’t know about you, if you heard those words earlier.”
Barack Obama, interviewed on WOAI radio in San Antonio, Texas, expressed frustration that his wife’s comments became political fodder.
At this point, is it fair to ask Cindy McCain what parts of her adult life she remembers?
At any rate, Captain Ed remains unconvinced and is “not buying it.”:
And let’s not forget that American politics drove all of these accomplishments, too. It’s our representative democracy that created the force that made all of that possible. Just as with any other enterprise, it has its crooks and incompetents, but American politics has also produced men and women who have changed the world, including FDR, Eleanor Roosevelt, Martin Luther King, Ronald Reagan, and many more.
How can one live as an adult and not take great pride in those accomplishments?
Michelle Obama means what HE thinks she meant, and not what she actually said or what she actually claims to believe. Who would have thunk it? Do any of these people know what the word “really” means? Captain Ed has proven himself to be such a hack the past few weeks we are moving him to Blogs We Monitor And Mock- it must have been his annual dose of CPAC kool-aid, but he is now as crazy as Red State.
