Rick Santorum on Obama, American Exceptionalism

The Big Lie, Ctd - The Dish | By Andrew Sullivan - The Daily Beast. Follow the link, watch the video. President Obama says, "I believe in American exceptionalism the same way I suspect the British believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks in Greek exceptionalism." Then he goes on to talk about why he loves America.

Rick Santorum, who always seems to me to look like someone who's about to cry because no one really takes him seriously, argues that America is MORE exceptional than those other countries, saying "I don't believe that they're equal."

Rick, you're dumb. The same way you believe that America is the greatest, the British believe that England is the greatest (or they did, during the height of British imperialism), and the Greeks do/did during the height of the Greek empire. Obama didn't say (in that statement, anyway) that he believed the countries WERE the same - he was saying that ALL countries will hold that belief.
