…as he [Obama] made his hajj from Strasbourg to Prague to Ankara to Istanbul to Cairo and finally to the U.N. General Assembly, Obama drew the picture of an America quite exceptional — exceptional in moral culpability and heavy-handedness, exceptional in guilt for its treatment of other nations and peoples. With varying degrees of directness or obliqueness, Obama indicted his own country for arrogance, for dismissiveness and derisiveness (toward Europe), for maltreatment of natives, for torture, for Hiroshima, for Guantánamo, for unilateralism, and for insufficient respect for the Muslim world.
One need not be a “birther” (I know I’m not one) to know that Obama is not American in his heart. Obama is a post-national citizen of the world.
That’s just great for college dorm bull sessions and the Eurotrash who select Nobel Peace Prize winners. It just won’t do for one who is supposed to be our commander-in-chief.
