    "If I've heard it once, I've heard it a hundred times: President Obama is destroying the country. Some say this destructiveness is intended; most say it is inadvertent, an outgrowth of inexperience, ideological wrong-headedness and an oddly undefined character. Indeed, on the matter of Mr. Obama's character, today's left now sounds like the right of three years ago. They have begun to see through the man and are surprised at how little is there.

    Yet there is something more than inexperience or lack of character that defines this presidency: Mr. Obama came of age in a bubble of post-'60s liberalism that conditioned him to be an adversary of American exceptionalism. In this liberalism America's exceptional status in the world follows from a bargain with the devil—an indulgence in militarism, racism, sexism, corporate greed, and environmental disregard as the means to a broad economic, military, and even cultural supremacy in the world. And therefore America's greatness is as much the fruit of evil as of a devotion to freedom..."

    yada yada? What's that baby talk mean?

    For those capable of speaking and understanding more than baby talk, it's a good article, worth reading. It explains a lot about our president.

    Your president maybe-as far as I am concerned, that (fill in the blank) is just occupying the office and being a roadblock to any economic acitivity. Jimmy Carter is the only American who is truly happy because he knows for sure that he will never be the worst president in American history.

    Halfmile seems to disagree with the author. What did he write that you disagree with?

    It is not just when "he came of age". it is a matter of where! He did not grow up in America and when he did came here, he was he was raised largely by his communist grandparents.

    To the fools who voted for him and the 40% or more who will do so again - smart thinking!

    Hey, we are just like the rest of the world now, we are no longer exceptional.

    Job report today is zero job growth since last report.

    Atta boy Obama, and all the non-exceptional people who voted for and still support this idiot.

    Apparently there is a significant reading comprehension problem here - Ironically that point is addressed in the article as well.

    The Obama administration and the Dems would have you believe the you can actually pick up a turd by the clean end.

    Everything that comes out of the WH is nothing more than cat sh$t.

    (Sorry Tron.... you too kitty)
