George W. Bush’s Inaugural Address

      Comments Off on George W. Bush’s Inaugural Address

The War on Terror and George W. Bush’s foreign policy exemplifies American Exceptionalism in many ways. In his Inaugural Address, he calls the U.S. a, “servant of freedom”. This goes back to the uniqueness of American liberty as a major component of American Exceptionalism along with the willingness to be the “servant of freedom” alone (Foot). Adding more onto the uniqueness President Bush suggests that the U.S. has to be the forebearer of freedom than no one else will pick up the torch. “If our country does not lead the cause of freedom, it will not be led.” This line alone nearly defines President Bush’s foreign policy and why the United States should be the police of the world.
