We are the champions

Posted By on Mon, Jun 8, 2009 at 12:47 PM

If you thought Mike Huckabee might ease off the American exceptionalism theme on account of a little weekend criticism, you don't know the Huckster. Read on. Sadly, I admit he sometimes has a pretty good eye for targets of demagoguic opportunity. Depicting the president as an apologist to terrorists might be one of them.

We believe that God has elevated us because we elevated each human life as having worth and value that we enjoy the greatest freedom and prosperity in the history of the world.

I have not forgotten where I came from and know that I'm one generation removed from a mother who grew up without electricity and living with dirt floors and outdoor toilets and became the first male in my family lineage to graduate from high school, much less get a college degree.

That could not have happened in most nations. I'm glad we believe in elevating our nation and the people in it and I don't apologize for America — I thank God for it.

Could not have happened in most nations? Sheesh.

UPDATE: And here's more on Huckabee's assertion that defeat of Prop. 8 was God's answer to prayers.
