America May Go the Way of GMWell, I doubt that phrase from his speech to the AMA was ironic in intention. (Guess who - 'The One'.)
Has the guy no capability to hear how stupid he sounds? I wonder, like when he emphasized the importance of fiscal responsibility a few weeks ago.
Well, he has gotten away with it all so far, he probably figures he is coated in teflon, and to a degree he is still allowed that by a largely uncritical media.
When does it start to break down seriously?
Also, his tepid reaction to the Iranian elections (especially compared to the EU, once far more passive and accepting to the US - this role reversal is SAD in one way, and great in another) looks deeply misplaced to me right now.
