It is symptomatic of the national condition of the United States that the worst humiliation ever suffered by it as a nation, and by a US president personally, passed almost without comment last week. I refer to the November 20 announcement at a summit meeting in Phnom Penh that 15 Asian nations, comprising half the world's population, would form a Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership excluding the United States.
President Barack Obama attended the summit to sell a US-based Trans-Pacific Partnership excluding China. He didn't. The American led-partnership became a party to which no-one came.
Instead, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, plus China, India, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand, will form a club and leave out the United States. As 3 billion Asians become prosperous, interest fades in the prospective contribution of 300 million Americans - especially when those Americans decline to take risks on new technologies. America's great economic strength, namely its capacity to innovate, exists mainly in memory four years after the 2008 economic crisis.

In Cambodia, he even got the servant's greeting.
“In four years Barry has gone from being an international embarrassment to an irrelevance.”
Correction: In four years the United States has gone from being an international embarrassment to an irrelevance.
Post-US world was born in Honolulu, HI or Mombassa depending on where BHO was actually born.
Another instance where we can’t be sure whether Hussein is tanking the USA on purpose.
Well, I think that’s right, but all (or at least a huge chunk) of the blame lies with Alinksy-the-Clown in the Oval Office.
They could just call it, 'The Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere."
Well you’re a racist.
We got birth control pills and Obamaphones.
Count me among those who have no doubt that buhrock is tanking the US on purpose.
What I did doubt was the fact that 51% of Americans, from bottom to top, also have a death wish for the USA, right along side buhrock.
Public schools have won, at last. Not a finger has been lifted to stop Marxist education, change it, or slow it down.
The leper messiah strikes again.
btw, I couldn’t get the link up to read the rest of the story.
Now doubt our president is sucked up into his mind - I wish he’d stay there.
I couldn’t agree more!
Its a little slow, but it works
It is down for me as well.
Thank you. I’ll try again.
Obama is Pol Pot. Any wonder they wanted to kick him out.
