Obama snubs America’s exceptionalism (American Thinker blog, 9/24, 2009)

September 25, 2009

President Obama’s first address to the U.N. General Assembly on Wednesday, Sept. 23, can only be described as a renunication of American exceptionalism.  Obama essentially gave up his nation in favor of being leader of the world when he told world leaders:  “No world order that elevates one nation or groups of people over another will succeed.”

In Obama’s eyes the U.S. is tarnished, stained, immoral, and unjust, with a flawed Constitution, and no better than any other nation.

It saddens me that Obama does not recognize the greatness of this nation.  It isn’t that our DNA is different.  It isn’t because we are better than inhabitants of other countries.

Why during our nation’s 250-year history have our living standards risen to the likes of never before seen in the world?  We have also shared our prosperity with the world.

America is exceptional because it was founded under the principles that have allowed its people the freedom to be the best that they could be.  This constitutional republicanism has allowed ingenuity and prosperity to flourish, and is our sacred trust.

President Obama’s obvious dismissal of America and its role in the world could not bode well for our future.
