Peter Wehner at Commentary says this about America's decline: "What is different is that Barack Obama isn’t on the faculty of Columbia; he’s commander in chief of the United States. Which means that his misguided views are downright pernicious. And for all the damage the president is doing on the domestic side–and I would not want to underestimate it for a moment–it may be the harm he’s inflicting on America in foreign policy and national security is deeper, broader, and more durable.
More than any president in my lifetime, Barack Obama has damaged
virtually everything he’s touched. When it comes to American interests,
he’s a one-man wrecking ball."
