I definitely think that the indicator of a country in rise or decline is the welfare of its citizens. I think our influence in the world is still somewhat lofty as we are the reserve currency; but that has one foot on a banana peel and the other on a recently waxed floor. Once we lose that status there will be no doubt of the decline. The rest is all arguable.

For my mental health, I stopped watching the State of the Union speech several years ago, so I didn't catch Obama make that statement. My condolences if you had to sit through it and listen in your journalistic capacity.
