Yes! Don't oversimplifiy it, don't put words in Obama's mouth that never were there. Obama never said that America is not a special place; and he never apologized for the American role on the world stage. He is just cool and realistic about the limits of American power, as he is cool and realistic on everything else.
Do you still feel that the USA is the sole superpower on our planet? Militarily, no other nation can rival us currently, but economically, we are merely first among equals. Â The Obama viewpoint on multilateralism in foreign affairs resulted in the elimination of Muammar Gadhafi, and has politically isolated Iran, without catastrophic financial or military fallout and without enraging any allies. Â What would you prefer, that we had tried to do those things militarily on our own?
In reality, Romney would do well to imitate Obama's skill with diplomacy, should he ever make it into the White House.
