Progressive thought in a nutshell

Fourth of July musings from one of the leading "progressive" blogs:

In spite of our historical cruelties, imperial tendencies, and wealth gap, I do believe that this is the greatest country in the history of the world. It's not because of any sort of manifest destiny, Providence, or exceptionalism. It's because natural resources and ocean borders gave us a unique history, because we are young and thus in a better position to learn from history's mistakes; and because oppressed people tend to do amazing things. It is those oppressed people we remember today, on the Fourth of July.

Get that? According to our "progressive" friends, America is a cruel empire of the wealthy, great because of natural resources and ocean borders, without the benefit of any sort of divine intervention.

I bet that's what Obama thinks, too.
