Exactly so, in every respect. Steyn nails it again.

Sometimes great powers decline slowly, almost imperceptibly, as Britain did for much of the 20th century. Sometimes it’s more sudden and convulsive. Obama is attempting Euro-statism, but, unlike Europe, without the counterweight of America to preserve some approximate relationship to reality. Which is to say I do not think this decline will be genteel, for America or the world.

I really wish I could think of a counterargument.

Two words...”British Leyland” (Google it).

Obama is just following an accelerated version of Britain's Post WW II Labor Party policy's.

GM is a government agency.

This is now a land that rewards failure — at the personal, corporate, and state level. And, as conservatives well know, if you reward bad behavior, you get more of it.

Nothing much more needs to be said.

In another twelve months, I wonder what currently unthinkable scenarios will have become faits accomplis.

I shudder to think about it...

Your unreadable newspaper has just woken up from its 96-page Obama Full Color Inaugural Souvenir bender to discover that its advertising revenue has collapsed with the real-estate market and GM dealerships? Hey, lighten up, Senator Kerry’s already been pleading your case in the Senate.

Is it really so hard to picture President Obama calling the mayor next spring to assure him he has no plans to move the New York Times out of New York?

A must read!

Stein rocks!

He always exactly nails it and his wit is so sharp it should be a registered weapon :)

And I always really enjoy it when he sits in for Rush (although I like the other guest hosts as well).

The money quote. America at the precipice. Steyn is one of the best analysts out there, not to be ignored.

Except of course by the all-knowing leader.
