America The Also-Ran

In yet another example of this administration's rejection of American exceptionalism, science adviser John Holdren says the U.S. can't be expected to always be on top. How uninspiring. How wrong. A little more than a year ago, the president himself said much the same thing at a NATO conference. "I believe in American exceptionalism," Barack Obama said, "just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism." In other words, America might think it's special, but so do other countries. And there's no reason to believe they're wrong. It's all relative. American exceptionalism is the idea that this country is set apart by our liberty and independence, our strength of character and our dedication to family, work, fairness and decency. America, more than any nation in history, is the "shining city" that Ronald Reagan described, and the best hope for the future of mankind.

Joe they will know

one day what this guy is. He surrounds himself with anti-capitalist anti-free market radicals. Communist, Socialist and Mao devotees.

Between this administration and George Soros they are breaking the back of our economy.

Look up the Joyce Foundation, Tides Group , Apollo Alliance and the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) see what they are and who is tied together. You will get a bit of the idea just how much money ($10 TRILLION) and who we are dealing with.

George Soros:

"The main enemy of the open society, I believe, is no longer the communist but the capitalist threat."

"I contend that an open society may also be threatened from the opposite direction -- from excessive individualism. Too much competition and too little cooperation can cause intolerable inequities and instability."

"Wealth does accumulate in the hands of its owners, and if there is no mechanism for redistribution, the inequities can become intolerable. "Money is like muck, not good except it be spread." Francis Bacon was a profound economist."

Get the picture..
