So Much For American Exceptionalism

, , , ,

John Hinderaker listens to another democrat apologizing for America.

Former Secretary of State Madeline Albright spoke at a forum in Omsk, Siberia. Pravda reported that her speech “surprised the audience.” No wonder. The Russians in attendance must have wondered how they managed to lose the cold war:

    Madeleine Albright said during the meeting that America no longer had the intention of being the first nation of the world. …

    The former US Secretary of State surprised the audience with her speech. She particularly said that democracy was not the perfect system. “It can be contradictory, corrupt and may have security problems,” Albright said.

    America has been having hard times recently, Albright said.

    “We have been talking about our exceptionalism during the recent eight years. Now, an average American wants to stay at home – they do not need any overseas adventures. We do not need new enemies,” Albright said adding that Beijing, London and Delhi became a serious competition for Washington and New York.

    “My generation has made many mistakes. We give the future into the hands of the young. Your prime goal is to overcome the gap between the poor and the rich,’ the former head of the US foreign political department said.

There you have it. And Albright was Secretary of State during the relatively moderate Clinton administration. I’m afraid she speaks for most Democratic foreign policy “experts.” Promoting American weakness: it’s not a bug, it’s a feature.

3 Feedbacks on "So Much For American Exceptionalism"

Liberals seem to have a pathological need to atone for success. As we all know, people never EARN success; they either steal it from others or are simply the random recipients of various life lotteries. Similarly, one needs to understand that American dominance is NOT the product of a more successful formula, but of numerous schemes to deprive the rest of the world of their god-given right to wallow in sloth, collectivism and corruption without penalty.


At last, former Secretary of State Madeline Albright comes forth to confirm what we have known: Democrats aren’t very smart–the jury is out on Republicans. She is the living proof that talk is cheap. She and others of her ilk fail to recognize or appreciate the exceptionalism of America, choosing instead to blindly heap praise on most of the despots of the world. This is understandable, however, because the Left are simply despot wannabes.


The dame lost me when she banged on the limo window bearing Arafat, imploring him to come back to the bargaining table. Jimmy Carter with a dress. Pathetic!
