If you don't feel that way today, try this: Watch his clip from his appearance at the Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago where he stumbled through an incoherent talk on climate change (I think, you decide), doing what he does best -- criticizing others for carrying around too much "hate, anger, racism" and, after stumbling around for the right word of phrase, coming up with "mommy issues."...

As for today, how many see that the United States is at what some call a tipping point, what others may call a Fourth Turning? Whatever you call it, the American republic is in its last days. This is too scary for many to contemplate, but there's something far scarier: playing ostrich and not being prepared for things to come.... (more)
