If he was a war criminal, he's no more a war criminal than the one that's currently in the oval office.

Ah thank you, Auschwitz. You lack, in my opinion, a grasp of world history and human nature. The greeks had us pegged, to a t, thousands of years ago. A nation, a culture, is all too human. America is not perfect, never was, never will be. But, compared to the; say the member countries of the UN, we are better. Like it or not.

Not everything a country or individuals do is exceptional Lampshade. However, given our country's history we are exceptional compared to every other country. And the a-bomb drop was awesome!

Auschwitz.....The term "American Exceptionalism" is just a bookmark of sorts. Its what the term represents that is in play here. America in the post-world war II era has always been first. First to provide aid and assistance to countries (even our enemies) in need. Is america perfect? No. But to view America through the muli-cultural prism, where all countries and cultures are the same is not only intellectually dishonest and foolish but self defeating as well. We are not China, we are not north Korea. We are not Pakistan. We are, in my opinion, better, in innumerable ways.

I responded the way I did because I'm always amused as well as annoyed at the hypocrisy of lib/progs that troll this site as well as the lame stream media. People like you who point at a speck in someone's eye and ignore the beam that's in their own eye.

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.
