Laura Bush Defends Michelle Obama's Patriotism

One of the sillier memes floating around out there is that Michelle Obama is somehow unpatriotic and not proud of America (due to a quote a while back that was misconstrued).

So, guess what rabid, left-wing crackpot jumped to Michelle Obama's defense today?

That's right, First Lady Laura Bush:

Michelle Obama has a new defender from those who say she isn’t patriotic enough — First Lady Laura Bush. In an interview with ABC News, Bush said that Obama’s February remark that she was proud of the United States “for the first time in my adult life” was misconstrued.

“I think she probably meant ‘I’m more proud.’ That’s what she really meant,” Bush said from Afghanistan.

“You have to be really careful in what you say because everything you say is looked at and in many cases misconstrued,” she said.

Thank you, Mrs. Bush. Your sanity on this issue is greatly appreciated.
