Obama Defends American Faith amid GOP Critique

Sunday, 04 Dec 2011 06:00 AM


WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican presidential candidates are accusing President Barack Obama of portraying America as just another nation and they're trying to raise questions about his patriotism.

The criticism has led Obama to defend his faith in America and confront GOP candidates who are seeking to undercut his leadership heading into the 2012 presidential election.

Republican Mitt Romney accuses the president of considering America "just another nation." The former Massachusetts governor frequently says America is an "exceptional nation."

Obama used a recent trip to Asia to highlight America's role as the strongest and most influential nation in the world. He says the rest of the world looks to the U.S. for leadership. He speaks frequently of the American values that the world admires.
