At a recent town hall meeting, John McCain indicated that he felt it was "tough" sometimes to be proud of our country. He said that we needed to be "more humble, more inclusive."
I will not stand for this anti-American rhetoric. We cannot have a President who feels that it is sometimes tough to be proud of America. For all I know, he's just a secret Muslim terrorist. I want a President who LOVES our country, and who is ALWAYS proud of our country, and never realizes that it has any faults... because it never does! More after the jump.
So a man finally got a question into McCain and he had a very different sort of question.
The questioner noted that he had been educated at Princeton and Harvard and made more than $300,000 a year.
"How can I be proud of my country?" he asked.
Get it — he was mocking Michelle Obama and her statement earlier this year that her husband had for the first time in her life made her proud of her country.
John McCain then swings and misses. It makes you wonder if this anti-American is even intelligent enough to run our country.
McCain said that:
I’ll admit to you that it’s tough, it’s tough in some respects.
Straight talk indeed--straight off the reservation! John McCain: do you love our country? Are you proud of our country? Do you find it hard to love our country? Why do you hate our country so much? Why do you not sleep in American flag bedsheets? Can you name the official bird of the state of Minnesota?
The sad part is, however, McCain will get a free pass on this. His name sounds normal and he's the "right" color and he was a veteran, so his patriotism is a given.
And of COURSE I don't think this is actually a real issue. Of COURSE I think it's tough to be proud of your country sometimes. But when the GOP and their tricksters start talking about Michelle Obama, and saying that "she's not proud of her country", can we play this tape? Can we, please?
I have one more question: John McCain--what do you hate most about our beloved country? The freedom? The awesomeness? The kickassitude?
