In interview with FL TV station WESH, President Obama worries country “didn’t have that same competitive edge that we needed over the last couple of decades.”

And/but Bam still believes we “have the most dynamic economic system in the world.”

The President's point about the recent history of America's economic standing would be perfectly valid, accepted, and reasonable in almost any context except the one he is in. You can bet this remark will be widely used by talk radio and other Obama opponents to stoke the American Exceptionalism meme.
