Our illustrious Secretary of State, John Kerry said at an event in Vienna, this week, “I get always a little uptight when I hear politicians say how exceptional we are,” he reportedly intoned, “not because we’re not exceptional, but because it’s kind of in-your-face and a lot of other people are exceptional, a lot of other places do exceptional things.
Are you kidding me?? This administration has now gone from the ridiculous to the sublime. No top-tier leader of ours should ever discount American exceptionalism. Even today, as wounded and as dismissed as we are, the US is still a beacon of hope for many parts of the world.
Were it not so, why would parents take the great risk of handing their children over to Coyotes, leaving the fate of their loved ones to the hands of these nefarious characters to get them into, “the land of opportunity?”
The Obama White House and its entire group of progressive, left leaning supporters/cronies, do not believe that we are exceptional, nor do they believe that we ever were.
45 years ago today, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin & Michael Collins, sat atop a mammoth Saturn V rocket and were propelled into the history books by 70,000 pounds of thrust. 4 days later, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin stepped onto the surface of the moon. This is THE shining example of American exceptionalism. Seven years earlier, when John F. Kennedy spoke the words, “We choose to go to the moon and do the other things, not because they are easy but because they are hard,” only 30 percent of the technology to make the moon landing happen was in existence. In seven years, because we had a goal and we possessed the intellectual fortitude, we successfully landed two men on the moon and safely returned them to the earth.
Nothing so monumentally important to the world could be achieved under Barack Obama and his administration. Obama does not posses the leadership qualities nor the intestinal fortitude to accomplish great things. His ideology will not allow him to dream the exceptional dreams.
His dreams are to fundamentally change this country because he believes the U.S. to be an empirical menace. He does not believe that the U.S. has largely been a force for good around the world. He believes in economic parity and that corporations are modern day slave owners, profiting off the sweat and back-breaking labor of their slaves.
Under this administration, this country has experienced the slowest economic recovery in our countries history; Mr. Obama has presided over the most scandal ridden administration since Watergate; the president, when given the opportunity to bring people together; he has chose to divide saying that “The police acted stupidly” in Cambridge, Massachusetts when they arrested black professor Henry Louis Gates Jr., a prominent Harvard professor. Obama did the same at the outset of the George Zimmerman investigation.
When given the opportunity to do the right thing, to tout the greatness of our country, to extol the virtues of the U.S., instead he takes every chance he is given to apologize for us.
One need only look to the Middle East to see a perfect example of weak leadership. The non-existent redline in Syria, the unilateral pull-out of our troops in Iraq, and the impending tragedy that that is leading to the lack of Support for our best Ally in the region, Israel. All of this has led to a Middle East region that is exponentially less stable than at any other time in recent memory.
Obama does not believe in the greatness of this country, therefore he cant tout it. It is clear that he wanted to become president to “transform” this country. I will give him the benefit of the doubt and refrain from labeling him a socialist and/or a Marxist. That said, if one took his actions in totality and put them before a jury, enough circumstantial evidence would eventually lead to a conviction.
Obama may not be the definitive “worst president in American history.” Barring that, he is arguably the worst leader. I may be a difference without a distinction. God help us until January of 2017.
