  • I believe what Obama means is to break America down and then reshape her into his ideal..which would be socialist/marxist ..that is why it is soo urgent and important to get as many of his policies through as quicly as possible before its too late (seats change) because all of them have elements within that will be sure to accomplish exactly that..Obama probably really believes in those ideals as he surrounded himself with people of such ideals throughout his entire life thus far...and at the same time hes also a puppet used to try and accomplish it all...the whole rock star image of his campaign to appeal to youngins esp..all a part of the scheme..

    Notice @Copenhagen Hugo Chavez had alot to say the typical America is awful and rotten rant and Capitalism must die we must fight it blah blah and people there applauded him..and Old hill was already offering our money out to other countries...I mean for cripes sake do the damn

  • Collapse our system so the uneducated and afraid cry out for more Government intervention. It started with Bush and Obama is here to implement the final stages of the take over. Pubs and Dims are no different they both want control over our lives just in different ways. I think he might be successful he has enough true believers out there.

  • I never understood this line of thinking... if you want to know what he means then you need to ask him. All we can give you is what we think he means, and it's pretty obvious that any answer given by anyone here is going to be biased.

    Personally, I hope he meant that we're going to go from a self centered nation to a global nation. Right now in general we expect everyone else to accommodate us. We don't bother learning other languages (besides Spanish), and our kids are falling behind. While we've been focused on ourselves the global economy has raced by us and other nations are taking the lead. We need to transform our core of "America is the greatest" into "America should strive to be the greatest". Greatness doesn't just happen, you have to work for it.

  • Well seeing it has been clipped out of context so you dont know what he was speaking about before he said it, its very hard to say !!!!!!!!!! But seeing as i guess it was probablly sometime during the time of the failing economy and banks collapsing and economic doom prophecies when the whole world economy was on the point of collapse , i'll speculate it meant from being in the condition it was then into a better one?
