‘Putin’ Words In America’s Mouth

In an open letter to America, here is what ‘President Putin’s response to ‘ObamaNation’s address:

English: Vladimir Putin, the second President ...

My working and personal relationship with President Obama is marked by growing trust. I appreciate this.I carefully studied his address to the nation on Tuesday. And I would rather disagree with a case he made on American exceptionalism, stating that the United States’ policy is “what makes America different. It’s what makes us exceptional.”

It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation. There are big countries and small countries, rich and poor, those with long democratic traditions and those still finding their way to democracy. Their policies differ, too.

We are all different, but when we ask for the Lord’s blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal.

Vladimir V. Putin is the president of Russia.
