    Can you imagine?
    Remember when President Obama said, "I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism," in April 2009? Well now Obama's million dollar man Bill Maher is saying we need to "get over" this whole American exceptionalism thing. Maher calls America a "stupid" country. If it's so stupid, why doesn't Maher take his show to a country that isn't stupid? Oh wait, because he couldn't say the things he does in any other country. Maher also repeatedly slams Mitt Romey's Mormon faith as well.

    Ironically, the one argument that can be made for the stupidity of America is its tolerance of Bill Maher.

    Yeah when you think about it, exceptionalism has taken a hit. There's so many idiots, unpatriotic and self-absorbed people, that yes, a case could be made.

    Who honestly cares what this pathetic, craven, overly provocative, little man has to say? He thinks his country is stupid? Get a refund from the obama campaign and go elsewhere.

    America! Love it or carry your ass...

    Well, as painful as it is to either say or admit, they are now correct. We are no more special than Greece/Spain/Portugal, etc, etc,,. We don't manufacture or produce. We sell or give away whatever technology we create so that it can be copied and sold back to us by our creditors. We borrow money from Chinese Communists to hand over to ungrateful nations that hate our guts. We liberate millions (whether they ask us or not), so that they can hate us even more. We hand our lazy, ungrateful population money taken from producing citizens in exchange for their votes.

    No, I'd say that O Blather and his demons from Hell have succeeded beyond their wildest hopes in the last three years. They have fundamentally changed our once great nation into a hopeless, pathetic pile of third world laziness and poverty.

    If we don't reverse the last three plus years of Marxist rule, we are finished. No, not necessarily overnight. More like a long, slow, deathbed disease where we get to watch the death for months and years.

    I really want to be wrong. My hope is now pinned on a moderate Mass. politician that doesn't appear to have the principles or courage to attack from strong conservative ideas. Not much hope, but better than another four years of terminal Marxism.

    The question is: How many people actually understand what American Exceptionalism means?

    I'd say about 47%.

    Actually, our penchant for manufacturing went away long before Obama took office. As for the other stuff, that, too, has been happening for quite sometime. Obama and his cast of clowns only succeeded in hitting the gas pedal.

    Oh, don't worry, Bill. Once Obama is done wrecking our economy and our national credit rating and, well, everything else he can get his grimy little claws on, American exceptionalism will be a thing of yesterday.
