Also, did he take a shot at Obama or America when he said this:
And I would rather disagree with a case he made on American exceptionalism, stating that the United States policy is what makes America different. Its what makes us exceptional. It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation. There are big countries and small countries, rich and poor, those with long democratic traditions and those still finding their way to democracy. Their policies differ, too. We are all different, but when we ask for the Lords blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal.
Far be it from me to think that Obama considers America "great"...on the contrary, I believe Obama hates the Constitution, Christianity and capitalism.
What makes America great are those three things, not in that order.
Putin is wrong to think America is not exceptional...we are. Obama is wrong because he says we are exceptional, because he says this only to stroke his ego.
Yes, Putin misunderstands what American exceptionalism is, and Obama is the epitome of that arrogance and self righteousness.
Putin may think Obama is representative of America, God help us.
Maybe Putin thinks Obama isn’t exceptional. I would agree with that.
