Washington Times ^ | 9/24/13 | Ben Wolfgang

NEW YORK — Addressing the United Nations on Tuesday, President Obama shot back at his Russian counterpart and stated, in no uncertain terms, that America will continue to be a global leader. “The danger for the world is that the United States … may disengage, creating a vacuum of leadership that no other nation is ready to fill. I believe that would be a mistake,” Mr. Obama said. “I believe America must remain engaged for our own security. I believe the world is better for it. Some may disagree, but I believe that America is exceptional — in part because

We can only hope that Zer0 is the exception to those going (leaning?) forward.

IIRC, Obama himself disagreed during his first term.

I don’t trust Putin any more than I trust Obama — but he surely knew that that is exactly what Americans would be brought to understand.

No. America WAS exceptional. Now, it’s just another dying socialist state.

I am sick of hearing the feeble-minded trot out “American Exceptionalism” as some magical term to silence debate. It means nothing now.

In the multiverse.

Obama is justtalking trash.

While he speak of us being engaged he is cutting our military’s ability to stay engaged.

He is filling it with moral losers and cutting their support.

Well, yes. It is exceptional that a country would have a large enough pleurality of in-bred morons who woul dbe willing to re-elect an incompetent nincompoop like the jerk in the Oval Office after such a dismal performance in his first term of office.

Very exceptional. Exceptionally stupid.

Was it another one of those “America is exceptional the way Canada is exceptional, Germany is exceptional and every other nation is exceptional”? statements or was it an unqualified “We’re better” statement?

Again, none of this has much to do with what "American exceptionalism" has meant historically.

And there are limits to how far any American President would go in saying to the UN, "We're better than you."

I’m sure he thinks the US is exceptional because we elected him, twice. Like when Mooch said for the first time in her adult life, she was proud of her country. Like that.

In the area of Global Warming, the US is not exceptional. In fact, it is horrible.

Under Obama, the US wants to ignore any outside and conflicting scientific findings. Only science that states the world is warming, is to even be considered.

Under Obama, anyone who disagrees with the US government is branded a denier.

Al Gore just called anyone who disagrees with the US government position on AGW a racist, homophobe and violent alcoholic.

So what exactly is exceptional in all that ?

If Reagan were still President, Putin would not have have that America is not exceptional.

“I don’t trust Putin any more than I trust Obama”

Really?

Putin has ordered the construction of 200 Russian Orthodox churches in Russia. Buckwheat has sent billions of dollars to mass-murdering Muslims who burn down Christian churches and murder Christians.

Tell us how you equate Putin with obuma.

Sorry, Ben, that sounds like a neo-con rant and doesn’t address my previous post. Say what you will, but I thought you were smarter than spewing out a contrived Soros/Hillary insult.
