President Barack Obama has a new defense against GOP criticism: He's exceptional.

Or, more specifically, The Hill reports, “I am American exceptionalism."

"It's worth noting that I first arrived on the national stage with a speech at the Democratic convention that was entirely about American exceptionalism and that my entire career has been a testimony to American exceptionalism," Obama said at a press conference Monday.

After those comments the president likely doesn’t have to worry about accusations of humility.

Obama’s remarks came after he was questioned about recent comments from Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney on the issue. Obama "doesn't have the same feelings about American exceptionalism that we do," the former Massachusetts governor said while campaigning in Wisconsin Saturday.

"I think over the last three or four years, some people around the world have begun to question that. On Tuesday, we have an opportunity — you have an opportunity — to vote, and take the next step in bringing back that special nature of being American."

Obama offered a condescending note about Romney’s statements. "I will cut folks some slack for now because they're still trying to get their nomination," the president said.
