She criticized Obama for appearing “reluctant to accept even the American power.” He noted that the president said earlier this year, “Like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower.”
Mr President, this can be a novelty for you, but most Americans are really like. And so do our allies. They know that it was our military power that freed countless millions from tyranny, slavery and oppression in the past 234 years. Yes, we like. As a dominant superpower, the United States has won the hot and cold wars, our military has promoted the cause of liberty and held in check authoritarian powers.
