40. For what it's worth
I understand your frustration with that statement. My sense is that people around the world aren't buying our bullshit anymore and that statements such as these are meant for American political consumption more than anything else. Our house is a wreck right now, all the way to the foundation. I feel like Obama is a fresh coat of paint we put on it in 2008 and are now selling that it's returning to its former glory. To his credit, the house is still up but we've got a long way before we should hold ourselves up as the ideal.
