http://news.malaysia.msn.com/business/article.aspx?cp-documentid=4182128 I find it hard to believe that an American, let alone an American President, would ever utter such a statement. I travel all over the world preaching revivals and crusades. America IS, hands down, the greatest nation in the world. We have, and should fight with every economic fiber to maintain, the economic edge over every country. If he doesn't beleive in American exceptionalism, why is he president? (And, yes, that is a retorical question).
