Reference Frank Batavick's recent article "America is already great." Compared to a third world, or a totalitarian state we are great, but compared to the America of 1945 to 2008, we are not. Batavick writes, "ISIS can't hold a candle to the Nazis." President Roosevelt called the Nazis evil and blew out their candle less than four years after Pearl Harbor. Ronald Reagon called Communist Russia evil and blew out their candle by 1989. Today, 15 years after we were attacked by Muslim terrorists, their candle still burns because Obama is more concerned about offending Islam than defeating the Muslim jihadists. This clearly shows how America has declined compared to America in the 20th century.
