    In his 2006 book, Morris Berman, says that a culture on the decline chooses leaders who hasten the decline. The last references in the book are 2004, so the book was finished in 2005.

    When I read it, I knew that it applied to W. Bush.

    Now in hindsight, it applies to Obama as well.

    Here is a link to my comment on another diary that has more about Berman.

    Arkin is another Obamabot, or in Chris Hedges' terms, one of the dead members of the liberal class. (title of his book is "The Death of the Liberal Class."
