Debate? Bite me.
Putin has a point. We’re not so special anymore. Just another socialist welfare state.
If the imposter wasn’t such an effeminate spineless clumsy pathetically weak empty suit, he and Putin would get along much better seeing that they both hold the same opinions of America.
The Exceptionals are not the Americans Putin is meeting face to face, far from it, but rather the Americans who Putin goes around staging pictures of himself pretending to be.
Well Vlad, we were special till Bambi came along.
Perhaps you can help us be special again - keep humiliating and torturing the little bitch so we can finally get rid of him.
Anyone, and I mean, anyone, born outside The Continental 48, can accurately grasp, the breadth and depth, of the term, “American Exceptionalism”.
Before the USA was born:
Japan, already was, with it’s own feudal, non-freedom culture.
Russia, already was, ditto.
The European Countries, already were, ditto.
There has not been a nation directly conceived in FREEDOM, until the USA was born, so nobody, no how, no where, else in the world, at that time, and still today, “gets it”.
The bottom line, the folks that made America free, stood up, and told any and all royalty, anywhere,
TO KISS MY GRITS!
(and spilled blood to prove it!)
Whatever special status the US once had started disappearing with the election of Obama in 2008, and completely vanished with his re-eleciton.
Now we’re the BSA — the Benighted States of America. Welcome to the post-American century.
Just as "freedom of the press" does not refer to a group of people, but rather to the mechanisms of delivering information to the populace, American exceptionalism refers to the unique concepts that make us free....the ability to think, speak and act on our own behalf and for our own benefit.
Nowhere else in history was this available to people. It is the application of these concepts which makes ordinary people exceptional and able to do great things.
Semantics counts folks!!! We have let the left co-opt our language and define terms to THEIR purposes for too long! When you hear someone mis-using a term such as this please--reeducate them.
Funny how Obama’s Press Corpse is stirring up patriotic fervor when they have been the biggest proponents of anti-American Exceptionalism for decades.
And Bill Ayers said, “Amen, bro! No, wait. I mean. Screw you, comrade! No. I think I had it right the first time. Ah, ferget it.”
I don’t expect Putin to understand what American exceptionalism is, or that our Constitution, Bill of Rights, Founders and our celebration of individualism makes us special. What strikes a nerve with me is that the Obama regime doesn’t understand it.
Just goes to show- Putin understands what is meant by American exceptionalism about as well as Obama does.
Know who understood it very well? The passengers on Flight 93 who, as soon as they realized that they were on a suicide flight, did what true Americans do. THAT was exceptionalism.
Don’t expect the incompetent in the WH to understand that anytime soon.
It’s touchy because “our own” president says we’re *not* exceptional.
I firmly believe in the Judeo-Christian ethic that God placed in humanity and that the Jews and the Americans have been exceptional in that sense. But the religious currents which guided that process have been undermined at every turn to the point that we no longer understand ourselves in those terms. We seem lost as societies.
“Forward” from what we had....
Thanks, Vlad. Now that we’re nothing special, we don’t have to provide $$aide$$ to the entire planet.
Actually Putie pu was just repeating what we had already been lectured to by fearless leader. And less than five years into his presidency he has brought that plot to fruition!!!
