First lady: Her patriotic tune seems to have changed

Well hip hip hurray for First Lady Michelle Obama declaring at the Democratic National Convention that America is the greatest country on earth, and don’t let anyone ever tell you differently.

I seem to remember eight years ago when her husband was first nominated for president that she said it was the first time in her adult life that she’d been really proud of this country. The first time!

So apparently it was OK for her to suggest it wasn’t a great country then, but heaven forbid anyone else should say it after the sheer wonderfulness of her husband’s presidency. The hypocrisy is staggering.
