Many have mentioned how President Obama failed to talk about our exceptionalism during his speech to the United Nations this week. Instead, he took his apology tour directly to the U.N. and again took the opportunity to lower the United States to a level of the likes of Iran, Venezuela, North Korea and Libya.
It’s mystifying why the President didn’t mention that we believe in people; we believe that the best is yet to come; we believe that the call of liberty and freedom finds comfort in the hearts and minds of people worldwide. Ours is a nation of immigrants and a safe harbor for those seeking freedom of expression and religion.
Rather than apologize to the world, Obama should have reminded members that the United States has led the world in the search for innovations and advancements to improve the quality of life and extend the life expectancy of man. When the people of the world face natural disaster or disease, the United States leads the world in providing relief and cures. When the people of the world are searching for hope, the United States is the beacon of hope for the downtrodden. When the people of the world are threatened by dark forces, the United States steps forward to combat the threat of evil.
He has more backbone than Obama.
