    the GOP hopeful are hitching their cart

    to that 19th and 20th century wagon.

    Dems need an appropriate, and disarming reply

    to match their rallying cries.

    thx commonmass, for the comments.

    What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.

      This is the primary GOP theme and it is intoxicating to most Americans, the overwhelming majority of whom aren't political junkies like us. As you say what is needed is an "appropriate" disarming reply. I think that takes some real talent. Just throwing cold water at it by stating that the US isn't or has never been, exceptional, isn't a politically viable strategy.
