I think that has a lot to do with the later generations mentality as a whole. People just don’t want to stick it out and put a little extra work into their relationships to make them last. They'd rather give up and start over. It's a shame! Till death do us part doesn’t mean anything anymore.

That would debunk my theory then. Although I am a bit surprised to see it start to elevate like that around 1970.

Back on topic.........

This is what confuses Me when I hear what an intelligent man Obama is.
He could of done what I believe no other American could or will, and that is calling out the hypocrisy in race relations in America, instead of stoking the fire for political gain.
He could of easily cemented His role in American history as the greatest leader/President since Lincoln by uniting the Country.

The arrogance in His speech to UAW workers yesterday was appalling & divisive as it gets. Those are not the words of a leader, but an agitator.
Promoting class/race warfare for short term gain will not make this Country strong again, it will only accelerate it's demise.

Yep, those first 100 days, he had the vast majority of the country either "on his side" or at least "Fine, I can tolerate the guy". There were only a few people who were very anti-Obama.

Combined with a House & Senate ready to follow his lead, he could have made amazing progress. But he is a failure in almost every measurable aspect, it's really quite sad knowing such a big opportunity passed us by. Now we are more divided than ever =/

Exactly his speeches in front of his base are a disgrace to any american president.
he must go. UAW. they have ruined the american auto job market. but they got their bailout, ameircan auto companies still have the highest labor cost and what does obama do,, he gives the demise of the american auto companies part ownership the UAW. they'll be bankrupt in another 10 years or so. The japanese are laughing at the american auto makers hey look they gave the UAW part ownership LOL. The biggest advantage the foreign automakers have NO UAW to ruin there company. Nothing has changed at GM or Chrysler. UAW is still in control

I agree as that was my thinking at the time. Did I want him in there? No, but I was willing to give him a chance. His arrogance started to show quickly and it didn't take long for me to figure out he was no good for the country.
