Cindy McCain criticizes Michelle Obama in an interview to be aired tomorrow on ABC's "Good Morning America". Speaking about the months-old Michelle Obama patriotism controversy, Cindy McCain says:

I don't know why she said what she said. Everyone has their own experience. I don't know why she said what she said, all I know is that I have always been proud of my country.

McCain's comments on the issue differ from Laura Bush's, who defended Obama in an earlier "Good Morning America" interview.

I think she probably meant I'm 'more proud,' you know, is what she really meant. You have to be very careful in what you say. I mean, I know that, and that's one of the things you learn and that's one of the really difficult parts both of running for president and for being the spouse of the president, and that is, everything you say is looked at and in many cases misconstrued.

This morning, Michelle Obama guest-hosted "The View" and noted how she sent a thank you note to Bush for standing up for her.
