Well, there you have it. President Obama is the most powerful man in the world, according to Forbes Magazine. But wait, the reasoning behind it is actually pretty cool:
Sure, his jobs bill was gutted, his debt-ceiling negotiating was derided and his popularity has plummeted, endangering his reelection, but Obama regains his position as the most powerful person on the planet this year. Why? Despite faddish American declinism, the U.S. remains, indisputably, the most powerful nation in the world, with the largest, most innovative economy and the deadliest military.
It's worth repeating-we have the largest, most innovative economy and the deadliest military in the world. Things may have been a little rough over the past three years, but we're still number one. And I'd say we all deserve a pat on the back.
