All U.S. citizens should declare pride in their country. According to Mark Halperin, when you do, you are a member of the "rough Republican attack machine," guilty of assaulting Michelle Obama's "...judgment and (at least indirectly) her character and patriotism ..."
How Halperin sees pride in our country as an attack on Michelle Obama is beyond most of us here on in the real world. And besides, there's much to be proud no matter your political views. --CE
