I listened carefully to, and for something particular in, President Obama's speech at the United Nations. But I never heard it. I never heard him apologize for America. Nonetheless we shall await pseudoconservative reports of Obama's treachery--reports which have become about as delusional and fanatical as those fanatics Obama this morning denounced.
What I did hear was a splendid, even sublime celebration--not a defense--of Western Enlightenment; a vigorous affirmation of the liberating embrace of tolerance and free speech. It's not too much to say that the president even embraced--could it be?--American exceptionalism, for it was, no matter how often and tragically we have abused them ourselves, those aforementioned values upon which this nation was indeed exceptionally founded.
Did Obama's exaltation of these values differ to any degree with the way in which President Reagan, or President Eisenhower, or President T. Roosevelt exalted them? No. Of course not. Yet as I "tweeted" (and I can't believe I just wrote that) before Obama's speech, I sure hope the Jennifer Rubins of this nation were sedated, because any Obama speech is sure to drive them even more fanatically insane.
With you, I shall now await their reports of blistering condemnation.
postscript: ... right on schedule ...
President Obama is so soaked in the State Department/Western European/ leftist intellectual goo of moral relativism and disdain for core American values that I doubt he understood how offensive were his remarks at the United Nations today.
