For those of you who naively think Obama has the best interests of America at heart and his ideas, while misguided, are based on a genuine desire to improve the lives of Americans, watch this.....
Virtually all of Obama's policies can be explained by his upbringing which was a resentment of America and her perceived colonialism and profiteering off the backs of the poor countries of the world which when taken in the context of Black Liberation Theology translates into the countries where black people live.
Obama wants to take America down a few notches. He doesn't believe in American exceptionalism nor does he believe that capitalism is the only, ONLY economic model that increases prosperity across all socio-economic strata and generally improves the lives of all who participate in it. He believes in central planning of all aspects of life by unaccountable, bureaucrat elitists which is how he views himself.
Yes, Obama wants America to fail because he believes it deserves to fail for its past sins.
