Obama's speech at the U.N. We can't go it alone
If you are looking for the great American economic engine to recharge itself and pull the world to prosperity, you can forget it. Obama believes that you need to put hundreds of little pieces of a puzzle together for there to be prosperity at home again. Very disappointing...extremely disappointing.
Now is the time for all of us to do our part. Growth will not be sustained or shared unless all nations embrace their responsibility. Wealthy nations must open their markets to more goods and extend a hand to those with less, while reforming international institutions to give more nations a greater voice. Developing nations must root out the corruption that is an obstacle to progress – for opportunity cannot thrive where individuals are oppressed and business have to pay bribes. That’s why we will support honest police and independent judges; civil society and a vibrant private sector. Our goal is simple: a global economy in which growth is sustained, and opportunity is available to all.
-President Obama at the U.N.
Our goal is simple??? Yeah, right. Just get 180 pieces of the puzzle all aligned together. How simple.
If only he realized we don't need anyone else. Prosperity for all Americans is something America can ONLY achieve on her own.
