" The latest effort to cultivate this disease"

George, let's say you're traveling in the EU. You are arrested a case of mistaken identity.
You go to court, no one is speaking a language you can understand. Who you going to call, Ghostbusters? The American Embassy?

" The mullahs in Teheran could not come up with a more sinister plot to poison our already fragmented body politic in a time of economic crisis."

Wait I thought the right always compared Obama to Hitler Maoist and Stalin?

" Our first post-American president is clearly busy planning for the post-American world."
I would certainly hope so. As opposed to just sitting on his rear end complaining about how having a translator in court is one of the many causes of the downfall of America in the next century.

Zakaria, he is one smart guy.

Zakaria wrote in Feb. 2008 that "Conservatism grew powerful in the 1970s and 1980s because it proposed solutions appropriate to the problems of the age", while- in contrast- "a new world requires new thinking".[10] He supported Barack Obama early during the primary campaign and then for president over John McCain. In January 2009 Forbes referred to Zakaria as one of the 25 most influential liberals in the American media.

I ordered his book, you can read it when I am done.

Tom - you intentionally skip the point made about multi-lingual countries' many social problems. Interesting how some want to discard that which made America great and implement historically failed ideas. Maybe you really want America to fail. Your ideas for its success have already been tried. American republican style democracy is an on-going exception to the historical tyranny of government. Progressives seem very uncomfortable with exceptionalism. Sad. I believe most Americans are increasingly ready for the post-Obama America to begin this November.

Nuff said

"multi-lingual countries' many social problems"

"some want to discard that which made America great and implement historically failed ideas"

"Maybe you really want America to fail."

"Your ideas for its success have already been tried. "

"Progressives seem very uncomfortable with exceptionalism."


And guys named "Bob" seem to make wide-sweeping assertions, assumptions and generalizations without actually saying anything of substance. Apparently, they don't love America. LOL

Tony, we all know that legal tourists in Alabama being tried on mistaken identity is not what is being litigated. This country is flooded with illegal aliens that bleed our country financially dry with costs incurred in the various public supported institutions. As far as a new world needing "new" thinking. Ha! Human nature has not changed one iota in ten thousand years. Rational thought is still the way to go. If you think China and India are so wonderful, I would ask why they still have large segments of their population starving? And the mullahs are quite a bit like Hitler and Stalin. What is the problem with comparing them? Denial of basic human rights. Lack of open and diverse thought. No freedom of the press. Sound familiar? If you think that all countries are the same, I would submit to you that when America is no longer a dominant world power, we will slip into a dark age the likes of which have never been seen.

Tony

I would submit to you that when America is no longer a dominant world power,we will still be a force in commerce and arms to be reckoned with at some peril.
To ignore that possible future is to abandon your children to it. Better to think about it and prepare than to quail at the thought and cling to One superpower mindset.

" flooded with illegal aliens"

They would not be here if W. wasn't so soft on immigration. The housing builders of the last 10 years and the Centeral Valley farmers demanded it.

"maybe not so much - just say'in"

Hey, he backed the winner. You backed the loser. Just laughin'

Ah - it's all Bush's fault again. He controls everything even before he was pres and now even Barry can't get away from his evil power. Power abhors a vacuum. I would rather my children live in a world where the US is the dominant power. If not the US, then another will step forward. Probably China. What sweeties they are. You'll have a job, just don't try to post on a blog like this, or you're in a labor camp. OK with you? Just askin'.
