The left-wing media was freaking out Friday over some comments Governor Palin made during a speech she gave at the Liberty and Freedom Foundation forum in San Jose on Thursday. She said:
“You know, when I hear people say, or had said during the campaign that they’ve never been proud of America, haven’t they met anybody in uniform yet?”
I am happy to report that the media is paying attention to Governor Palin’s speeches (pay close attention, LSM you may just learn something). However, I think it’s funny that the press came ferociously to Michelle Obama’s defense after Governor Palin’s comments. Although Andrea Mitchell cited, in her lunatic brand of reporting, which is nothing more than spouting off delusional left-wing sentiment, that Governor Palin was “taking a direct shot at the First Lady.” Actually, Governor Palin never mentioned Michelle Obama by name. Somebody has a complex.
In all honesty, everybody in America knows who Governor Palin was talking about. That’s because what FLOTUS let slip during the pre-FLOTUS campaign days was so disgraceful, she rightly caught lots of flak for it.
Andrea Mitchell, still doing the bidding of the Obama administration, said today that Governor Palin “was taking the First Lady’s comments completely out of context!” How so, Andrea? She said what she said. Here’s the video of Michelle’s remarks during the campaign in proper context:
She talks about being “proud for the first time” in her “adult lifetime” of her country. She said it wasn’t just because “Barack has done well,” but because people were “hungry for change.” Meaning, people were going to vote for “change” otherwise known as her husband. She then goes on to talk about not feeling so alone in her “disappointment” in the country. What a patriot! How could Governor Palin get that so wrong?
Alas, she didn’t get it wrong at all. I happen to have received my college degree in the Arts. I obtained said degree in Southern California, so believe me when I tell you that I have been around my fair share of radical left-wingers. I know how they think and I know the way they talk. Like Michelle Obama, they generally have little nice to say about the United States of America and they surely aren’t proud of their country.
Like Governor Palin, I carried the patriotism my parents instilled in me, into my adulthood. Anytime I see a service member, or tall metropolitan buildings, a vast farm, or even the beauty of our deserts, I have a sense of pride in this nation. I read the founding documents and look at the legacy of liberty in which America was built, and I cannot even fathom living in a different country. I, like Governor Palin, have always been extremely proud of my country.
After Andrea Mitchell spun the details of Michelle Obama’s words, she then snidely asked the question “was smart to take on the popular First Lady.” I understand Michelle Obama is popular at Spanish resorts, but I’m not exactly predicting a revolt against the Governor for reminding Americans about the First Lady’s heart. The media on the other hand… Well, once again they showed their true colors while “reporting” on this Friday. They have no trouble with the thought that Michelle Obama may not be someone who dearly loves this country, as a First Lady should. No, they just don’t want Americans to think that is the case.
