In spite of the Fox Noise jingoistic nonsense, the US is sinking in many ways: poverty rate going up, manufacturing base lost to foreign countries, innovation structure ruptured, and obstructionist who care for themselves more than our country. Our decline will come even before global warming does in the world.

You’re being too harsh Mr. Fish. After all he is a politician, we have to work with
what we got.

That’s because we do not believe in work - only in angels, magic, and all that garbage.
Grow Up it takes work, and work takes time

I sincerely believe that Obama had all of right intentions as he was going into office. Of course, all of that changed the day Obama “Mr. president-elect” officially became Obama “Mr. President of USA.” After his inauguration, some very powerful individuals took him to an undisclosed backroom where they firmly grabbed the president by the nuts and, like in any classic mobster movie, demanded that he only answer to them. When you watch the president closely on television, you can tell that he’s speaking to two different audiences: the corporate interests who (literally) own him, on the one hand, and the general public who he only wishes he could help, on the other hand.

He didn’t kill it, he just mugged it. Somebody else will come along pick it up and mug it again. That’s the American way.
