Since Reagan was President, all we have heard is how arrogant we (USA) are and how the world economy is NOT based on the USA's.
If that is the case, then why are Germany & France & the othe EU countries cring so hard about it being our (USA's) fault?
AND.......why is Obama apologizing for our (USA's) economic corrections??
It kind of points to the fact that the USA's economy does drive the world's economy!!
