Howard Fineman -- long a fan of President Obama's -- points out that The White House isn't "the place to be" to the extent that the sense of America's power and prestige diminishes around the world.

Perhaps that fact can persuade the President to stop apologizing for his country, driving its economy into the ground and genuflecting to foreign leaders.  After all, if the United States is reduced in importance and authority, so is he, right?  And while it's beginning to seem as though the President isn't all that concerned with America's status, it does seem apparent that he takes his own most seriously.
