Did you hear the raise in salary Michelle received after Barak was elected to the U.S. Senate? Why is she so ungrateful to America. She could be America's First Lady...

“Boom! Boom! Boom!” she read to a group of preschoolers. Profiles: The Other Obama: Reporting & Essays: The New Yorker

Earlier on the day that Obama visited the nursery school, she addressed a congregation at the Pee Dee Union Baptist Church, in Cheraw, a hamlet of about six thousand known as “The Prettiest Town in Dixie.” The church’s makeshift gravel parking lot, next to the Pee Dee Ice and Fuel Company and bounded by train tracks, was full. After an invocation by the Reverend Jerry Corbett and an introduction by the mayor of Cheraw, Obama came to the pulpit. “You all got up bright and early just for me?” she asked the mostly elderly, almost all-black crowd. “Yes!” they roared. Obama continued, “On behalf of my church home and my pastor, Reverend Wright, I bring greetings.”
Profiles: The Other Obama: Reporting & Essays: The New Yorker

Michelle Obama begins with a broad assessment of life in America in 2008, and life is not good: we’re a divided country, we’re a country that is “just downright mean,” we are “guided by fear,” we’re a nation of cynics, sloths, and complacents. “We have become a nation of struggling folks who are barely making it every day,” she said, as heads bobbed in the pews. “Folks are just jammed up, and it’s gotten worse over my lifetime. And, doggone it, I’m young. Forty-four!”

Stop lying about Michelle. Calling for change is patriotic, not the other way around. Just because we want to better our own country does not make us "ungrateful".

Some people see a glass with water in it and either view it as half full or half empty. Michelle, unfortunately seems to see the glass as half empty. She has a very sour, negative personality. Maybe her home wasn't a pleasant place growing up? Maybe her parents abused her? Maybe she has sibling issues? Maybe she has an alcohol or drug problem? Who knows why she is so bitter.

Well Michelle's 20 year mentor the Rev Wright preached Black Liberation Theology which it is a separatist movement and is only concerned with the African "motherland". She made a choice to listen to him for 20 years, so YES, I would say Michelle Obama is an American hating separatist.

you two don't know the FIRST THING about what being American means. And that's particularly troubling for a marine (if you really are one)

Then so is TODD PALIN.

I just read it. Besides a fuzzy definition of emancipation, where does it say ONLY concerned with the African motherland?

Really, Michelle Obama, compared to Palin, is a saint (if you are talking about "hate").

I'm not sure what the outrage is.

We are a nation that is guided by fear. Our current president used fear (and lies, no less) of a terrorist attack to get us into a war that we didn't need to be in. It was that fear that got him elected to a second term he didn't deserve.

And we are a nation of folks that are barely getting by. Until just this year, minimum wage was at an all time low and had not been raised in over 9 years. Cost of living was through the roof, we're in a mortgage crisis, unemployment has seen record highs. The government felt the need to - not once, but twice - to "stimulate" the failing economy, and now they're having to bail out Freddie & Frannie. There's new words in our vocabular like "Staycation" because people can't afford vacations anymore. Hard working middle class families who used to donate to food banks and charities now seek their help.

That's not a lack of gratitude, that's a dose of reality that alot of folks are turning a blind eye to.
