PBS: 'Obama Is Our First Truly American President'

Did you know that Barack Obama is our first truly American president?

You didn't?

Well, according to Emmy Award winning commentator John Ridley he is.

The following insulting segment was aired January 22 on Los Angeles's PBS station KCET (video embedded below the fold, h/t Hot Air via NB reader Thomas Stewart):

Every president to hold office has espoused some version of Americanism; the truths that we hold self-evident, even when those truths are not always in evidence. But for all their grand rhetoric and mostly good deeds, none was able to seal the deal on the trifecta of equality, plurality and socioeconomic ascendancy. Obama has. Obama is the more perfect union. He is a house united. Obama is the New Generation and the hot light of a dawn that goes way beyond clever phraseology of "Morning in America."

Quite simply, quite plainly, just by virtue of his being, Obama is America, and the first true American to lead our nation.

Wow. I guess the previous 43 weren't really Americans.

Who'd a thunk it?
