So those who say America is done or in decline. Do they not know what they are talking about?

That's what Obama seems to think. I tend to think that we are declining, though that decline can be arrested if the right policies are put in place.

4. Obama also said that those like me who questioned the

 

circumstances under which Osama bin Laden was extra-judicially executed should have our "heads examined" (on "60 Minutes"). I'm having to hold my nose tightly shut this November.

6. Taxing multinationals is a good start.

If a company wants to sell a product or do business in the US, it needs to pay our taxes on that product or business.

8. In decline, yes. Rapidly since 2000. Before that, gradually since 1980.

11. Bush sent America into decline big time

 

But Obama has to say that, what he said in the speech, because its like a requirement for his job to cheer lead America.
No president is going to say we aren't on top or number one. I'm looking forward to America no longer being top dog and having to control the whole world to be frank.
