This was from PoliPundit on Obama and American Exceptionalism;
Obama, when he’s not campaigning for re-election:
“I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism, and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.”
Obama, when he’s campaigning for re-election:
“It’s worth noting that I first arrived on the national stage with a speech at the Democratic convention that was entirely about American exceptionalism and that my entire career has been a testimony to American exceptionalism.”
To which James Taranto responds:
It seems like just yesterday that I wrote about how Obama’s Administration and Czars are prodding us back to living like the early days of our nation. Actually that is not true they are prodding us to become like some small European nation even though our country is more vast and our populations are more spread out. Our slow decline into European living took another step today as American Electric Power (“AEP”) announced that in order to comply with EPA emissions standards they will be shutting down five power stations and spending up to $8 billion to upgrade some remaining plants.
