Democrat Barack Obama has a message for Tennessee's Republican Party: "Lay off my wife."

Obama and his wife, Michelle, were asked in an interview aired today on ABC's "Good Morning America" about an online video last week by Tennessee's GOP. It took her task for a comment some considered unpatriotic.

Obama says it's unacceptable for anyone to attack his family.

The video, posted on YouTube, centered on remarks Michelle Obama made while campaigning in Wisconsin last February, when she said: "For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country." The four-minute video replayed the remark six times, interspersing it with commentary by Tennesseans on why they are proud of America.
