‘Does Obama Believe the U.S. is Exceptional?’ (TDBlog)

IT’S ALL RELATIVE

‘One of the central tenets of the far-Left is a rejection of American exceptionalism……

“Obama was asked by a reporter if he believes in American exceptionalism. A simple “yes” would have been appropriate from the American president. Instead, as always, Obama uses double-speak:

‘I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.’ (Obama)

Obama, like his mentor Bill Ayers, believes that the US is a fundamentally flawed country. It’s a very popular notion of the far-Left and on college campuses, but it’s not the form of patriotic liberalism preached by FDR, JFK, and Clinton. It’s more the Leftism of Ward Churchill, and I find it repugnant.” (Texas Darlin’)
