8. American exceptionalism and American pride are two different things

American Exceptionalism is the idea that we are the best country - that we have the right to dictate to the rest of the world because we are more moral than they are.

Being proud of our accomplishments is not a bad thing; but being sure that we are the best nation of them all is not great.
