America's Disastrous Domestic and Foreign Policies

The domestic and foreign policy of the USA is a total and complete disaster. In this program, we quote many liberal and conservative national and international voices, showing the "declining American influence and commitment in the Middle East," the "incompetence" of the President; and his lack of "vision or power," while putting "politics and ideology ahead of preserving hard-won gains." They state that while America is "alienating its friends," "the ruins of American foreign policy" are observable everywhere. Why is America in such an unprecedented hopeless state?
