SEMINOLE, Fla. (AP) -- President Barack Obama says Republicans are "dead wrong" in calling America a country in decline.

In a spirited rally in Seminole, Fla., on Saturday, the president said the nation is still an engine of ingenuity and the envy of the world.

The mere fact that this clown was elected proves America is in decline.

Then his idea of a healthy nation is 85,000 new jobs, and over 300,000 people dropping out because they haven’t been able to find one.

He has no private sector business experience.
He has no record as a public office holder.
He has no record as president, improving the situation.

Now it’s clear he doesn’t even have any math experience.

He claims to have produced over 4 million new jobs. At what cost, the loss of tens of millions of other jobs?

Oh yes... four more years. That’s just what we need. /s

If “not in decline” is defined as “hanging in space, unsupported by anything, but momentarily not yet descending”, then maybe for a very brief instant in time, that may be technically true.

But then comes the free fall, increasing in speed up until terminal velocity is attained. The fall is only arrested when smacking into the terra firma below.

Or somebody finally has the presence of mind to pull the ripcord on the parachute, thereby slowing the descent and reducing the force of impact.

I am one that believes that Obama intentionally wants America to go into decline and will do everything in his power to help make that happen.

On the contrary - America is busily ‘ascending’ the ladder of Marxist Idiocy toward the ultimate status of failed and impoverished Africa-style, Third-World sh*t hole.

“America a country in decline”

Only 58 more days, Barry.

That is *exactly* the problem.

Along with our out-sourcing all jobs.

We have created an end-game, against our own nation. One side lives by government. Except it is government paid for by an ever-shrinking manufacturing base.

The ever-shrinking manufacturing base is being built by communists, who have four times our population. Who own half (51% actually) of every single factory, and demand increasingly, that is right increasingly to control factories.

We have screwed up.

We need to change directions.

Oh, the things Junior will say to try and hang on.

The ongoing pampering of the press, and the cheers of the ignorant, invokes the revival preacher in him, and he says what it takes to bring them to the alter of Obama.

Empowered by narcisscism, and fueled by hard-leftist enablers, he says what it takes to get the applause, true or not...mostly not.

Promising to “introduce” bills for more entitlement, he buys votes like a 2-for-1 sale.

But each utterance just proves his wholesale ignorance and inability to tell the truth.

We fell from 1 to 7 on the Economic Freedom Index. I would call that a decline.

This fits right in with his comment that the private sector is doing fine.

Of course it’s intentional. Everything he has done TO America has been deliberate and carefully calculated. Not by him, of course. He’s not that bright. But by his anti-American, anti-capitalist handlers. The name Soros comes to mind. But there are others. Enemies of America without.....

AND within.

And it’s the enemies within that we should most fear..... since they are the ones that have managed to pull off this massive hoax and disaster upon America. The name Pelosi, Reid and Jarret come to mind.....but there are others. Many, many others.

“I am one that believes that Obama intentionally wants America to go into decline and will do everything in his power to help make that happen.”

Soooo....according to Obama....America losing its’ triple A credit rating, for the first time in history, is a positive sign of success, prosperity and excellence?

I’m sure it is a sign of success in Obama’s book.... considering his ‘real’ agenda.

Well, I have to agree with him on this one.

America has already declined.

The Dems are smart to use phony patriotism when the Republicans are rightly pointing out how our system is collapsing. Denial is a powerful thing. Most people use it to get through their daily grind, bad marriages, and deteriorating financial problems. No one wants to think America is in decline. So SAY IT ISN’T! And blast the GOP for “running down this country”. And add the total fiction of “saving the auto industry” (it was never in jeopardy, only the unions) and “saving 1 million jobs” (100% lie), to add to the propaganda. I must admit, it is a smart tactic, and one which may well work in just 60 days.

As well as the possibility that this Marxist idiot could be reelected. In your father's America he'd be lucky to hit 20%.
