Is it a lack of comparative experience? I suppose if you've never been anywhere else in the world you might perceive the U.S. in some negative fashion. Any place can be improved of course and positive change is a good thing. However, why must people, like Michelle Obama cast negative aspersions on the most free, most prosperous and most egalitarian country in history? She only recently, in her 40s has reason to be proud of her country. She calls her country "downright mean". Does she KNOW any real Americans? Perhaps it is a lack of political sophistication or is a purposeful calculation to play on more ignorant citizens. The product of elite education who earns a 6 figure salary and lives in a million plus dollar home seems strange to denigrate the very country which made such possible for her.
