Cindy McCain responds to Michelle Obama “proud” comments (Mosheh Oinounou , 2/19/08, Fox News: Embeds)

“I am proud of my country. I don’t know about you? If you heard those words earlier, I am very proud of my country,” Mrs. McCain said while revving up the crowd and introducing her husband. [...]

Speaking in Wisconsin Monday, Michelle Obama caused a stir when she said, “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.”

Even from the ladies' tee, that one'll play.

This is the first time the Obama campaign has tipped its hand re: its ties to trendy anti-American leftism. It will be instructive to see how much the campaign will be put on the defensive and how it will respond.

Maybe instead of yet another Hillary-Barack debate we can have a Bill-Michelle debate--at least it won't be a snoozefest.

This is actually the third time something like this has happened. He refused to wear a flag pin and he was photographed not standing and putting his hand on his heart for the anthem. The wife's gaffe is strike three. Any one of the three incidents by themselves could be laughed off, but three is a clear pattern of America hating liberalism, and thank Cindy McCain for calling her on it, because you know the press, who also hate America, won't.

A Bill-Michelle debate could be very instructive. Perhaps Andy Young would have to change his tune. Or perhaps he would be vindicated.
