Michelle Obama has apparently come a long way in her appreciation of America.
"What a country"
"For the first time in my adult lifetime, I'm really proud of my country"
"It's easier to hold on to your own stereotypes and misconceptions, it makes you feel justified in your own ignorance...That's America"
Hmmm. My love for and pride in my country has never been dependent on my winning something or someone I love winning something.
What does that say about you when the level of your patriotism is based on the level of your personal gain?
