Osama's death proves U.S. exceptionalism

It was a Tuesday morning in September when everything began. It was a day that was to change America forever. Soon, parents would see their children off to war. Fathers would kiss their newborn daughters goodbye, and some for the last time as they went to levy justice on those who were responsible for murdering almost 3,000 Americans. For 10 years America paid a heavy price, as we sought to extinguish any further threat to our safety. Then came Abbottabad.

Obama fails to respond

As our country faces its worst economy in decades, as our national debt surpasses the entire GDP of India, as worldwide turmoil threatens our energy security and as a horrific tragedy in Japan claimed the lives of the thousands, the leader of the free world found time to pick Kansas as the champion of his 2011 March Madness bracket.

Walking down the streets of Tianjin, China, last summer, I couldn't help but notice the working conditions of a construction crew wrapping up its shift.

In the aftermath of the shootings in Tucson, Ariz., last week, Americans of all races, ideologies, and creeds came together to remember those who lost their lives and those who were still recovering.

After I was mobbed by Chinese tourists eager to take a picture with me and get an autograph from a ""real"" American, those two words were as welcome as an Ian's pizza on Friday night.
