We are exceptional!

Authority!
by Timothy J Taylor

America can t be a global cop, but it ought to act like one in certain situations. 'That s what makes us exceptional,' declared emperor of the planet Earth, Barack Obama. 'With humility, but with resolve, let us never lose sight of that essential truth.' Humility; did he say with humility? Just exactly when during the last century has the United States government ever acted with humility?
