Barack ***** Obama is claiming that a GOP video of his wife saying that “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country.” is a low blow, and that his wife should be off limits. Nice try, but the comments were made while Michelle Obama was on the campaign trail stumping for her husband. If you are actively campaigning, you are fair game.
Not that it should come as a surprise that the Democrats would try to claim that a person was off limits…
They claim that we can’t say anything about Cindy Sheehan because of her son’s tragic death, we can’t say anything about the “Jersey Girls” because their husbands were among the almost 3000 killed on 9/11. These are surely tragic occurrences, but they don’t immunize the people from having their ideas examined. (For more on the subject, see Ann Coulter’s Godless)
Sorry, Barack, but you don’t get to have your wife go out, say whatever she wants in an attempt to get you elected, and then claim that it is “unacceptable” to quote her when you don’t like what is being said.
