Obama Promotes American Exceptionalism?

Got that? We think we are exceptional just like every other country thinks it is exceptional, like everybody gets a participation medal.



I just proved Obama mocks American exceptionalism, what is in my heart doesn't matter. Obama promised to fundamentally transform America if elected, we can judge by his unbridled expansion of Federal and Executive power what that means, once again not my opinion, facts.



We are better off than other countries, which we have always been. Wow, great praise. We are better off because Obama did as well as anyone could have, a meaningless standard.

Some facts for the right to ignore. Yes, Obama's sanctions were hurting and are hurting the Russian economy. I don't get this need to pretend anything Obama does is wrong. Or the willingness to fool yourselves. Hate for this POTUS makes people blind and purposefully dumb.

Cause we were all nice and happy under the previous president, with Putin respectfully staying in control, right?

The fact is the Obama quote is accurate. Look it up. The request was to prove Obama mocks American exceptionalism. Only an unintelligent person attacks the source when proven wrong.

But I'm sure you have the proof for that in your heart. Just like when Obama mentioned transforming the country, that means literally whatever you want it to be.

Of course the US is great, but I'm saying we're looking even better within the specific context of recent economic events.

How was that a mock. He simply pointed out that other people in other countries believe they are exceptional. Did you look for a lapel pin?

Except that you didn't. Saying other nation thinks they're exceptional too, which they do, isn't mocking the concept of American Exceptionalism.

Unless you'd like to explain how.
