McCain: "It's Tough In Some Respects" To Be Proud Of America (Video)

Posted: Updated:

On Thursday Dan Abrams played a video during his MSNBC show of John McCain saying, "I didn't really love America until I was deprived of her company." Abrams speculated that the video could help to undermine the right wing's attacks on Michelle Obama for her comment about being proud of her country for the first time in her whole life.

On Abrams' Friday night show he began with yet another segment on McCain making statements about the difficulty of being proud of your country. This time McCain explained to a young man that "it's tough, tough in some respects" to be proud of America.

As Abrams notes, the statement is hardly controversial, but he goes on to ask, "is it really all that different from Michelle Obama's comment."
