President Obama and his ilk almost root for America's demise. They obviously do not believe in the rare and precious gem that is America because they do not recognize the essence of what she is as so amply described in an old adage: "I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors, her ample rivers, and it was not there...in her fertile fields and boundless forests, and it was not there...in her rich mines and her vast world commerce, and it was not there...in her democratic Congress and her matchless Constitution, and it was not there. Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power: America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great."

Regrettably, greatness has passed before them, and they have failed to recognize it.
