Lexington: Where has all the greatness gone? | The Economist

Lexington: Where has all the greatness gone? | The Economist:
"When Barack Obama visited France last year a British reporter asked the president whether he believed in American exceptionalism. Mr Obama said he did—“just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.” You may think that an agreeably tactful answer. And yet some conservatives have turned it into a profane text, one that proves Mr Obama’s unfitness for the great office he holds. More than a year after the event they are still banging on about it."
It still amazes me how much badwill itcan create at home when a president acts and speaks like a rationale, responsible and mature representative of his country on a visite of another nation. - Granted, this already happened about a year ago. Unbelievable to read that there is still unrest about it!
