“In his speeches, [Obama] has repeatedly said we are one of equals – equal partners around the world. We’re not equal partners. We’re not the same as France. We’re not the same as Argentina. We’re not the same as Portugal. We have exceptional responsibilities and exceptional leadership opportunities. And we need to rise to that responsibility. There’s no other country in the world that can do what we do. This notion that we are just another in the pack – you know, just a voice in the chorus, is contrary to the history of America’s role in the world. I think he has just a fundamentally different worldview in that regard than other leaders.”

Where does that come from?

“I don’t know. I don’t know.”
