Americans RE-elected Obama. Is THAT exceptional or what? /sarc
Putin gave O a lesson is spreading BS and using the NYT as his “ shovel
Ready “ partner
Here, I think, is the difference between those two tyrannists: the KGB was selective about candidates it admitted, and trained them long and hard.
Vlad does not know the meaning of the word or what American Exceptionalism is. Neither does Obozo.
Personally I am tired of bombing other countries and being told it is a humanitarian mission, when plenty of other humanitarian slaughters are completely ignored. Hypocrisy is the mainstay on this issue, which is really about natural gas and not children or chemical weapons at all. Kerry and Obama make me want to vomit with their obvious lies.
Finally if we are so exceptional why was Obama elected twice?
Putin hates the idea of American exceptionalism because he’s still mad about how the USA defeated the EVIL EMPIRE that he loyally served and wishes was still around.
Ed Luce, from the Financial Times. Where's Ed -- there he is.
Q Thank you, Mr. President. In the context of all the multilateral activity that's been going on this week -- the G20, here at NATO -- and your evident enthusiasm for multilateral frameworks, to work through multilateral frameworks, could I ask you whether you subscribe, as many of your predecessors have, to the school of American exceptionalism that sees America as uniquely qualified to lead the world, or do you have a slightly different philosophy? And if so, would you be able to elaborate on it?
PRESIDENT OBAMA: I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism. I'm enormously proud of my country and its role and history in the world. If you think about the site of this summit and what it means, I don't think America should be embarrassed to see evidence of the sacrifices of our troops, the enormous amount of resources that were put into Europe postwar, and our leadership in crafting an Alliance that ultimately led to the unification of Europe. We should take great pride in that.
And if you think of our current situation, the United States remains the largest economy in the world. We have unmatched military capability. And I think that we have a core set of values that are enshrined in our Constitution, in our body of law, in our democratic practices, in our belief in free speech and equality, that, though imperfect, are exceptional.
Now, the fact that I am very proud of my country and I think that we've got a whole lot to offer the world does not lessen my interest in recognizing the value and wonderful qualities of other countries, or recognizing that we're not always going to be right, or that other people may have good ideas, or that in order for us to work collectively, all parties have to compromise and that includes us.
And so I see no contradiction between believing that America has a continued extraordinary role in leading the world towards peace and prosperity and recognizing that that leadership is incumbent, depends on, our ability to create partnerships because we create partnerships because we can't solve these problems alone.
That was then. This is now.
Previous shills for Russia writing in the NYT were on the NYT payroll. Some were also on the KGB payroll, but I digress.
