I agree! I really do.
But, with accountability dwindling at home as you stated... I think respect across the world is dwindling fast also.
Economies the whole world over are in the pan right now and its not going to get better soon. GWB certainly has not helped matters in the worlds eye of the USA. If one of the other countries that are begining to make a mark on the worlds economies, through no fault of anyone, outshines the US, then what?
Would the US accept a new role model??
A figure head or whatever they are is setting themselves up for a heavy fall if they think they can be the role model to the world.
Just my opinion... and now im late putting my meatloaf in the oven!
Well as they say, ''All Empires fall in the end'' and they usually do quite dramatically.
