I am an American.

I could have commented on the video but didn't think it appropriate for
this list.
I could have commented on the concept that people actually voted for
George W Bush but didn't think it appropriate for this list.
I could comment on the concept that this great nation is the only one
who has actually employed nuclear weapons, continues to detain prisoners
in stealth but didn't think it appropriate for this list.

Those who are not living in America should note that not all of us who
do, embrace the referenced movie, this president, some of our past and
current misdeeds but in the end, this discussion isn't appropriate for
this list.
