American Exceptionalism, the Obamas and Progressivism

By Ron Knecht

“I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.” – President Barack Obama, April 4, 2009.

That quote shows that Obama is either completely ignorant about the term or cynically dishonest, because American exceptionalism is characteristically different from British, Greek and all other claims of national exceptionalism.

[Editor’s note: Ron Knecht’s column today takes the form of a story for his 12-year-old daughter Karyn.]

Karyn, it’s the Fourth of July, so time for another Daddy story about baseball (of course) and a great American (also of course).  I’ve told you about Sandy Koufax, Stan Musial, Jackie Robinson and others.  Today, it’s Lou Gehrig, The Iron Horse.
