Members of the Republican party have a rendezvous with any nut case who can utter words of defiance and hatred of the president of the United States of America. For years this title has been held by Senator
Ted Cruz who believes any and all problems in this nation are the result of immigrants from the land of Mexico. I should make clear he refers to illegal immigrants. Of course, Ted was born in Canada, but what the hell, his mom was American. Now, after years of making millions of dollars speaking to businessmen about his heroism during 9/11 surrounded by dozens of cops wants to once again emerge into the limelight of making more money by attacking the patriotism of President Obama. Now, Congressman Darrell Issa is touting the wise words of the millionaire from New York. Darrell made clear that Rudy needs our “thanks” for clarifying the issue of who is a patriot.
Rudy and Darrell believe the president does not believe in the American experience of being an exceptional nation. I wonder if there is a nation in this world, a group of people in this world who do not regard themselves as “exceptional.” The issue is not whether a nation is exceptional, but what is the nature of that exceptional behavior? I do know that Rudy Giuliani is exceptional as making money using the bravery of others.
