And now we have a first ........well what ever she's first in I can't call her a lady, that has lived her whole life pampered and in the lap of luxury at the US taxpayers dime and it took us nominating her useless idiot of a "man" to feel proud of America. Sorry folks gotta run I feel nauseated.

Personally, I am still offended that we had enough people in this country who could overlook Michele saying this was a "mean country." We have moments of which we have little to be proud, but you and I did not commit those wrongs, and we have nothing for which to apologize. At the darkest times in history, people came forward to try to right those wrongs, yet she chooses to nurse anger and resentment. Sad and pathetic and unfit to serve...that is how I view Barak and Michele Obama.

Jim Diep escaped from Vietnam when he was 11 years old. One of his brothers gave him this guidance: “If they ask you where you want to go, tell them America.”

From Townhall Magazine's April feature, "Escape to America," by Kathy Jessup:

Heavy nets infused with the stench of salt and fish concealed the 11-year-old boy hidden in the bottom of a rowboat as it pushed silently away from the dark South Vietnamese shore.
