"Exceptional" After All

President Obama tonight defended and explained (sort of) his order of US military intervention into troubled Libya.  His appeal rested largely on, get this, "American Exceptionalism", something he and fellow traveling liberals typically disdain.  Nevertheless, he used words and phrases like, "unique", "who we are", "our values", and "the United States of America is different" throughout the speech.

Is he coming around or is his appeal more than a little, as the Church Lady used to say, "convenient"?

(If you're too young to remember the Church Lady, google it.)
