Nile Gardiner, a columnist for the Telegraph in the UK, offers a concise, yet complete, analysis of the decline in the Obama presidency. His article is not loaded with the partisan views that seem to fill our airways and hard copy whether it comes from the media left or the media right! Just click on the web address….if that doesn’t work, you should be able to go to “File” and “Copy” then “Paste” the whole article…but as a tease, I will offer the following excerpt for your consideration:
10. Obama doesn’t believe in American greatness
Barack Obama has made it clear that he doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism, and has made apologising for his country into an art form. In a speech to the United Nations last September he stated that “no one nation can or should try to dominate another nation. No world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will succeed. No balance of power among nations will hold.” It is difficult to see how a US president who holds these views and does not even accept America’s greatness in history can actually lead the world’s only superpower with force and conviction.
