Does the United States have a unique character that makes it the greatest country in the world? That was the question asked by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, polling Americans’ view
of the notion of American exceptionalism two years ago. As reported by
the American Enterprise Institute: 70 percent said yes, America has a
unique character that makes it the greatest
country in the world. Only 29 percent chose
this option: “No, every country is unique
and the United States is no greater than other
Barack Obama is part of that 29 percent.
As I’ve always told you, we’re being governed by a genuine minority — and this is a
prime example. As you can tell by Obama’s
comments on American exceptionalism, he
uses the term, but he does not mean what his
countrymen mean by it. He intends it as a
slam. The Obama Regime is philosophically
and ideologically opposed to the view held
by most Americans that our nation is both
unique and great. Liberals despise and resent
that belief, and do everything they can to
stamp it out, especially via the schools — by
seeing to it that young Americans are never
exposed to their own country’s miraculous history. Journalists even regularly declare “the end of American exceptionalism.” They wish.
THE LIE. I’ve got a pretty good handle on Obama’s view of this country.
It holds that America has always been an illegitimate superpower. We
acquired our status in dishonest ways, and we must now demonstrate that
we are no longer that cowboy country running roughshod over the planet.
The sum total of the Obama Doctrine is that there’s nothing exceptional
about America except our sins, for which we must apologize to the world.
The Obama Doctrine, of course, is weakness. As Dick Cheney noted,
Obama “is a very, very weak President. Maybe the weakest, certainly in my
lifetime … We’ve got a problem with weakness, and it’s centered right in
the White House.” He has a chip on his shoulder about this country. It’s
how he was raised. It’s how he was educated.
Look, when someone writes in his own book that at his first job out of
college, a law firm, he believed he was “behind
enemy lines” because he was at a capitalist
organization, it should tell you something.
When someone says he wants single-payer
socialized health care, it should tell you something. When someone assumes office and
apologizes for America in multiple foreign
policy speeches, it should tell you something,
and to me it said a lot.
The Obama Doctrine results from
Obama’s belief that this country was unjust
from the moment it was founded. In his mind,
America was immoral because it codified the
dominance of whites, the wealthy, and the
elites at the expense of minorities and the
poor. The United States was a rigged game
from the outset, a system designed to keep
the elites elite, the rich rich, and everybody
else with nothing. It was a country that grew
and expanded and became powerful by virtue of its illegitimacy, and it
grew and expanded not by liberating the oppressed around the world, but
rather by stealing resources from the world. So naturally we could become
a superpower if we were going to be thieves.
He doesn’t use those exact words. But this is what he believes.
America’s superpower status was never deserved. So now this country has
to be brought down to size. To the modern American left, America the
superpower was not real — because it was illegitimate. Just as they say
that the 20 years of economic expansion launched during the Reagan years
The TRUTH About
“I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in
British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.”
— BARACK OBAMA, IN STRASBOURG, FRANCE, 4/4/09
“I believe in American exceptionalism with every fiber of my being. But what makes us
exceptional is not our ability to flout international norms and the rule of law; it’s our willingness to
affirm them through our actions. That’s why I will continue to push to close Gitmo…”
