Because one good failure deserves another.

Sarah Palin's dick is jealous.

Another reason to root for Cal over Stanford, as if there needed to be another reason.

She must be exceptionally self-hating, on many fronts.

A well spoken and clean credit to her party.

FTFA:
"If America is going to rebuild its strength at home, rebuild its sense of who we are, it needs a leader that also understands how really exceptional the United States of America is, and is not afraid to lead on the basis of that exceptionalism," Rice told about 300 donors. "The only thing that people dislike more than unilateral American leadership is no American leadership at all."


We must run roughshod over friend and foe alike and exert dominion over all the world. That's what people really like about us, you know. So vote for that pimp-daddy warlord, Mitt Romney.

This is what prominent republicans actually think.

Now THAT is a Secretary of State!

She's getting fat.

That is disappointing. I expected more from her.

//ps. I am a registered Republican and I think Rmoney is joke. This is not a partisan attack.

I'd let Condi eat my Rice, if you know what I mean.

The exceptionalism to which she refers costs Americans $2.5 billion per day and makes it impossible for our society to afford providing health care to all.

Go Romney. USA, USA.

I could never quite figure out why Condi Rice was a Republican, given that she seems relatively sane (much like Colin Powell) and probably eats beaver (much like Colin Powell). Is the "American exceptionalism" philosophy the key?

Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice endorsed Mitt Romney as the Republican presidential nominee at a fundraiser in California last night, saying he understands the nation's special place in the world.

Is it just me or did anyone else think of Steve Martin in The Jerk "I found my special purpose"?

Romney:
Because blind patriotism is awesome and if you don't vote for him you hate the USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA!

She's very well paid to lend her academic "credibility" to conservative causes. Much like that one professor from MIT whose name escapes me

How the f*ck would anyone know?

I don't think this will end happily

What we need to do is strip away all the rights that women and minorities have fought so hard for, so please, vote for Mitt.

A Secretary of State who should be nailed to the hull of the oil tanker that used to be named after her right before said tanker is hit by two torpedoes.

What a farking tool. Endorse the dipsh*t because he's a Republican.

Like my lack of respect for Rice needs to go any lower.

"I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism."

~Barack Obama

That's the quote a lot of RW bloggers have tried to make hay out of in asserting that Obama doesn't believe in American Exceptionalism, which is another way of asserting he lacks patriotism which we are assured the GOP have by the ton.

As usual the full quote deos the subject more justice.

I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism. I'm enormously proud of my country and its role and history in the world. If you think about the site of this summit and what it means, I don't think America should be embarrassed to see evidence of the sacrifices of our troops, the enormous amount of resources that were put into Europe postwar, and our leadership in crafting an Alliance that ultimately led to the unification of Europe. We should take great pride in that.

And if you think of our current situation, the United States remains the largest economy in the world. We have unmatched military capability. And I think that we have a core set of values that are enshrined in our Constitution, in our body of law, in our democratic practices, in our belief in free speech and equality, that, though imperfect, are exceptional.

Now, the fact that I am very proud of my country and I think that we've got a whole lot to offer the world does not lessen my interest in recognizing the value and wonderful qualities of other countries, or recognizing that we're not always going to be right, or that other people may have good ideas, or that in order for us to work collectively, all parties have to compromise and that includes us.

And so I see no contradiction between believing that America has a continued extraordinary role in leading the world towards peace and prosperity and recognizing that that leadership is incumbent, depends on, our ability to create partnerships because we create partnerships because we can't solve these problems alone.


~Barack Obama.

Personally, I find Obama's take on the topic to be refreshingly mature compared to the right's simplistic jingoism.

It's like that "My country, right or wrong" thing.

Full quote is "The Senator from Wisconsin cannot frighten me by exclaiming, "My country, right or wrong." In one sense I say so too. My country; and my country is the great American Republic. My country, right or wrong; if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right."

Context is important and the Devil really is in the details.

I always though Rice was intelligent, but she is clearly just another blind ideologue who will support whoever the Republican candidate is.
