Unhappy America
Jul 24th 2008
From The Economist print edition
If America can learn from its problems, instead of blaming others, it will come back stronger

NATIONS, like people, occasionally get the blues; and right now the United States, normally the world’s most self-confident place, is glum. Eight out of ten Americans think their country is heading in the wrong direction. The hapless George Bush is partly to blame for this: his approval ratings are now sub-Nixonian. But many are concerned not so much about a failed president as about a flailing nation.

Sub nixon? before impeachment or after?

You'd be interested in what the comptroller general of the US has been saying. He runs the Accountability Office. David Walker.

the US is something like 10 trillion dollars in debt. I wonder how much longer they can keep borrowing money until it's game over and time for the chin music.
