Clearly, Obama does not think the US should be a global power, and he is very effectively destroying our society and economy. The damage he will have done in eight years will be difficult from which to recover. And we are teaching ourselves to be dependent on the government, giving them more and more power over us, and different departments of the government will start trying to get more power for themselves (IRS, TSA, EPA???). Then "We the people" will have lost.

Concur. What I wonder is, why, after we have been throwing Israel under the bus for the last six years, WHY DO WE HAVE ANY INFLUENCE WITH ISRAEL?

Excellent questions! I have one Jewish friend with whom I have discussed world issues for 28 years, and still can not understand his thinking. He is educated, successful and well read, nevertheless...
I'm not fond of Joan Rivers type of comedy, but after her "rant", Nothing personal, just my taste. I have a lot of respect for her now, especially since she is usually of a liberal bent. Go, Joan, go! CharlieHam42
This truly has to be one of the great contradictions of life.
My mother used to be a member of NOW. She left over some issue years ago, and has now passed away. She probably join again now, just so she could quit again.
All this assumes the presidents goal is improving things for most people, something he certainly is not doing. But if you understand his real goal ("Dreams From My Fathers", he is against the colonial powers) to damage, punish or destroy the U.S., he is competent and successful at doing that.
If you thought that Obama was just wrong or incompetent in the way he runs the country, you have it backwards. He knows exactly what he is doing, and has been very successful at it - ruining the country, that is. Read his book, "Dreams From My Father". His father hated the old colonial powers and wanted to do them in. Now he (Obama) is taking his shot at the U.S. for his father. If you realize that is his goal, you understand how competent he really is.

My dad did not join the military in WWII but became a college professor. I was born during the war, and never thought about his not joining. Until, that is, one day when I told him I was joining the AFROTC in college, and would enter the Air Force. He briefly told me that he has tried to join, but was classified 4F because of his hearing. We never spoke of it again, but in retrospect, he was sorry, even embarrassed or ashamed that he could not serve. That so many people had that attitude then, not so many now, is another indication of the moral corrosion of this country. Neal, you are correct about our "leaders", they are not at all the label they take for themselves.
I love that term, "caucasophobic zealot". I always thought such people as either jealous or the product of victimology brain washing, or both. Certainly the victimology of many black leaders is a bit part in this. In practice, the use of the term "privilege" by these lefty people means a person who works hard, get an education applicable to his capability and goals, and then becomes successful based on those foundations - i.e., a successful person.
Not much of a manager, if he does not know what is going on!
