You said, "There is nothing wrong with our country. There is something wrong with our politics."
What you should have said is, "There is nothing wrong with our country. There is something wrong with me."
Just take Libya, for instance. How is all that hope and change coming along in Libya? Not so good, I'm afraid.
What did President Barack Obama get us into? Even he doesn't know. We are borrowing money from China to bomb Libya.

Did the McCain/Graham-backed Libyan “freedom fighters” take a break and go up to Kabul and strike the UK embassy in Kabul? Just askin’......
Even is we are ultimately successful in ousting Gaddafi, our participation was for naught. Either tribal chaos will reign or a new Western hating “government” will replace him.
This is truly a gratuitous war which we have no national self interest in. This administration has not even made an effort to define what national self interest we have other than “human rights” which translates into no national self interest.
and one line from the article is classic:
“We are borrowing money from China to bomb Libya.”
I’ve heard that about him.
Obama is refusing to defeat Kadaffy in order to portray America and NATO as weak paper tigers so that our enemies will run wild all over the world knowing that Obama will do nothing about it. Just look at Syria! Assad sees his fellow socialist muslim terrorist Kadaffy is still in power even after being bombed, so why should Assad step down? He can see from Kadaffy's example that Obama will do nothing to actually force regime change. Obama wants Kaddafy to stay in power so he can plot his revenge on the USA.
Soros and Obama's plan is to send UN "peacekeepers" to enforce a ceasefire and to protect Kadaffy and the rebels from each other. Then we will finally have "boots on the ground."
