While he accepted the fact that we are the only country able to provide "security" around the world, he seemed to slam America for using 25% of the world's resources, and exporting pollution, yadda yadda - "livin' large" - surely he has core sympathies with libs.
[I am a compulsive recycler, but do not feel guilty about our economy using so much of the world's resources - however that is measured]
He did have good words for Rumsfeld, and I did not understand everything he said (my hearing problem), but I did not hear any right track/wrong track comments about this administration in general.
I think he merely pointed out the obvious fact that this may lead to some strategic tensions in years to come as Asian demand for resources increases. He in fact spent a fair amount of time discussing why we continue to get away with it. As wealth elsewhere increases, and demand for resources increases, price will increase. Either our productivity will have to increase proportionately wrt the rest of the world, or by simple economic laws our share of the take will decrease.
