Known for his polemical outspokenness, Solway flat out says that Barack Obama is the worst possible president at the worst possible time, and pins the blame squarely on Obama not only as a cause of the American malaise but also as an effect of a process of ongoing decay and a reflection of the majority who elected him (calling Obama an offspring of... ... more
