Danielle Pletka at the Christian Science Monitor
gives a rather bleak picture of how President Obama will end up looking after the whole Wikileaks scandal has died down. I'm inclined to agree. Though I think Americans need to understand that faltering economically while still venerating the Spicoli philosophy of living, losing war after war, and constantly blaming ourselves, each other, and every leader we don't like is doing nothing other than pushing us farther and faster into the trash heap of history. Hence, if Obama looks weak and impotent, America looks the same. And once more I'll say it - it won't be anyone old enough to read and comment on this blog who will pay the price. It will be our children, their children, and the children of the world left on a planet without a superpower, however flawed, the least bit interested in such antiquated notions as freedom, liberty, equality, and the dignity of the human person.
