Ok… after much thought… here goes:

Yes, I am proud to be an American. I am not always proud of America.

Proud to be an American?

Michelle Obama said, in a recent speech, that “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country” and this started a lot of chins wagging and fingers typing. Columnist Michelle Malkin wrote a response to Mrs. Obama which you can read here: http://michellemalkin.com/2008/02/20/michelle-obamas-america-and-mine/ I was emailed Ms. Malkin’s response by my favorite Conservative, my Dad. I read it and then I responded to it.

Now, I want to hear from you, faithful readers. Are you Proud to be an American, why or why not? What does it mean to you to be “proud to be an American”? What does it mean to you if someone were to say they are not “proud to be an American”?

I am desperate for your responses, my fellow Americans and gentle readers. Don’t let me down.
