This, from President Obama’s speech in Rio today, is the latest sign of America’s decline:
In particular, with the new oil finds off Brazil, President Rousseff has said that Brazil wants to be a major supplier of new stable sources of energy, and I’ve told her that the United States wants to be a major customer, which would be a win-win for both our countries.
Under Obama’s new, post-industrial order, petroleum engineering and exploration, drilling and refining are more jobs Americans won’t do. Instead, others create wealth and we pay them for it. With what? doesn’t seem to be a question that occurs to our President.
