Bush Comforted Obama Following Criticism Over Remarks
WASHINGTON — Michelle Obama said on “The View” Wednesday that she was “touched” when first lady Laura Bush came to her defense recently.
Obama has come under criticism for remarks she made in February, when she said that for the first time in her adult life she was proud of the United States.
In an interview with ABC last week, Laura Bush said she thought the remark had been misconstrued and that Obama “probably meant” she was “more proud.”
Appearing on ABC’s “The View” as one of the co-hosts, Michelle Obama said she sent the first lady a note to let her know she appreciated those comments. (Source: http://www.clickondetroit.com/entertainment/16645394/detail.html)
She said she likes the “calm, rational approach” that Bush takes to such issues. Obama also said she’s “taking some cues,” in the event that her husband is elected president. She said that there’s a reason people like Laura Bush, and that it’s because she doesn’t “fuel the fire.”

Michelle Obama Takes Heat for Saying She’s
‘Proud of My Country’ for the First Time.
Barack Obama’s wife, Michelle, is under fire for leaving the impression that she hasn’t been proud of her country until now, when Democrats are beginning to rally around her husband’s campaign.
Speaking in Milwaukee, Wis., on Monday, she said, “People in this country are ready for change and hungry for a different kind of politics and … for the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.”
Greeted with rousing applause after making the comment in Milwaukee, Obama delivered an amended version of the speech later that day in Madison, Wis.
“For the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m really proud of my country … not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change,” she said. “I have been desperate to see our country moving in that direction and just not feeling so alone in my frustration and disappointment.”
Obama was born in 1964, meaning her adult life began in 1982. Critics quickly seized on the newfound national pride. (Scource: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,331288,00.html)
