Obama declares war on his bad poll numbersHuman Events ^ | John HaywardPosted on 9/11/2014, 9:56:22 AM by don-oI’d say my preview of President Obama’s ISIS speech held up quite well, right down to his abundant first-person references to himself.

As anticipated, he continues to view the Islamic State as primarily a domestic political problem. His primary objective is to move the narrative away from his hideous behavior over the summer, from his endless parties and golf outings to his disastrous “I have no strategy” gaffe.

American exceptionalism – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia…

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Not to be confused with Americanism ideology.

Scholars argue that the Statue of Liberty “signifies this proselytizing mission as the natural extension of America’s sense of itself as an exceptional nation.

“[1]American exceptionalism is a traditional belief -

or theory – that the United States is qualitatively different from other nation states.

[2] In this view, U.S. exceptionalism stems from its emergence from a revolution, becoming what political scientist Seymour Martin Lipset called “the first new nation”[2] and developing a uniquely American ideology, “Americanism”, based on liberty, egalitarianism, individualism, republicanism, populism and laissez-faire.

[3] This ideology itself is often referred to as “American exceptionalism.”[3]Although the term does not necessarily imply superiority, many neoconservative and other American conservative writers have promoted its use in that sense.[3

][4] To them, the U.S. is like the biblical “City upon a Hill” — a phrase evoked by British colonists to North America as early as 1630 — and exempt from historical forces that have affected other countries.

[5]The theory of the exceptionalism of the U.S. can be traced to Alexis de Tocqueville, the first writer to describe the country as “exceptional” in 1831 and 1840.

[6] The exact term “American exceptionalism” has been in use since at least the 1920s and saw more common use after Soviet leader Joseph Stalin chastised members of the Jay Lovestone-led faction of the American Communist Party for their belief that America was independent of the Marxist laws of history “thanks to its natural resources, industrial capacity, and absence of rigid class distinctions”. American Communists started using the English term “American exceptionalism” in factional fights. It then moved into general use among intellectuals.

[7]

[8] In 1989 Scottish political scientist Richard Rose noted that most American historians endorse exceptionalism. He suggests that these historians reason as follows: “America marches to a different drummer. Its uniqueness is explained by any or all of a variety of reasons: history, size, geography, political institutions, and culture. Explanations of the growth of government in Europe are not expected to fit American experience, and vice versa.”

[9]However, postnationalist scholars have rejected American exceptionalism, arguing that the U.S. had not broken from European history, and accordingly, the U.S. has retained class-based and race-based inequalities, as well as imperialism and willingness to wage war. Furthermore, they see most nations as subscribing to some form of exceptionalism.
