Tea Party Anyone..The Raw Story: Missouri Congress Roman Refuses To Stand Near Obama Picture

American exceptionalism as depicted via a video game, but borrowed temporarily by a Florida Tea Party chapter. WikiAmerican exceptionalism is the theory that the United States is "qualitatively different" from other states.[2] In this view, U.S.exceptionalism stems from its emergence from a revolution, becoming what political scientist Seymour Martin Lipset called "the first new nation"[2] and developing a uniquely American ideology, "Americanism", based on liberty, egalitarianismindividualism,republicanismpopulism and laissez-faire.[3] This ideology itself is often referred to as "American exceptionalism."[3]

What a load of crap!

While many in the nation accept our diversity and welcomed a president regardless of race, the tea party seems infested with people who at the core cannot deal with diversity to that extent. Heavens forbid the paradigm shift associated with a president who happened to be an African-American in a more classic sense than most African Americans via the reality of his fathers ancestry and DNA.
