We might want to ask Michelle if she is still proud to be an American.
Evidently, she wasn't proud of her country until her husband was elected...or at
least that is what she said.As a grandson of WWII veterans, I'd like
to remind her that America has only saved the free world twice and that my
grandfather is buried in borrowed land in France. I've been proud of my country
my whole life.
I look forward to having the First Lady visit Utah. I think she and her family
Is she still proud to be an American?Welcome to Utah, but you may
find California more to your liking.
We really can hold an out of context grudge for a long time.
I wondered on opening this thread how many posts would appear before someone
expressed a negative reaction. Didn't have to read too many, either.
She can land and make a visit but should be on her way. We're not interested.
Atleast I'm not nor are 90% of Utahns, and most American's aren't either.
Please - NO!
Oh I hope she does! I sure would love to meet her! That would be the highlight
of my life!
You know, you have to love how people take things completely out of context to
suit their own political dialog they have set up for themselves. Let me ask all you "America is Perfect" patriots out there. Are
you proud of Americas history of Slavery and segregation? Are you proud that
Japanese, no matter how long they lived in this country were rounded up and put
into relocation camps - one here in Utah - but Germans were not? Are you proud
of the fact that in Illinois a law was passed allowing the
"extermination" of a people based on their religious faith? Are you
proud of the innocents that were killed in the "war" in Vietnam, or
the fact that we turned tail and abandoned those people when it no longer was
politically expedient. Are you old enough to be proud of a president who got
caught breaking the law and was forced from office. When you see video of
police beating unarmed people - aka Rodney King - does that make you proud - or
when OJ was found not guilty?We can still be proud of our country
without being proud of everything it has done in our name.
Michelle Obama represents values many Utahns say are important: motherhood,
being a good example, having a family garden, taking care of our bodies through
exercise and good food choices to name a few. So what is the
Welcome to Utah.Hope you enjoy your visit.
Looking a several of the comments, it's a shame that Utahns can't be more
hospitable to a First Lady who clearly shares the same family values as those
claimed by Utahns.
Please stay in D.C. and tend to your garden. Or have your staff tend to your
garden. Utah has no need for you to be here. @ bluedevil The country
has made mistakes. I am not really bothered by them. Politicians which this
women is are the embarrasment not the country.
As a loyal true Red-blooded conservative/libertarian Republican, I say let's
welcome Michelle to Utah. I think she's done a decent job as First Lady even
though she didn't particularly want the job and I don't think she enjoys it at
all. I don't like some of the lavish trips she has taken, but overall she's
done okay. I hope people won't be nasty about her or to her--she's doing her
best. Let's be gracious and show her that we are good people even if we don't
agree with her.Now, let's do everything we can to get her husband
out of office and get our country back on the right track. YESSSSSSSSS!!!!!
It is of interest that the First Lady will visit the most red of reddest states.
Obviously, the President has no chance of winning Utah. But she comes anyway,
promoting a failed presidency, a failed economy, a failed foreign policy, and a
total lack of leadership. I am sure she was sent because she will be better
received than the President himself.
I am proud of my country! I am extremely grateful for my fore fathers who died
to save it and our way of life. That being said, first and foremost, we should
always take the high road and be as Christ, full of grace and humility. But
when the time comes, the money changers will be forced to leave the temple.
Pray always and carry a big stick. May God bless America, now lets stand up and
take back our country!
