From "Can do" to "Can't do"

As Victor Davis Hanson points out, that's America's direction now.

Whether it's strengthening the family, reforming health care, building infrastructure, reducing energy costs, or any of a host of goals we agree are worthy, we spend a lot more time squabbling about the means than moving toward the ends. Nobody and nothing seems good enough anymore for getting where we need to go. Meanwhile, Asia surges forward with the optimism and energy we used to have.

I wonder what's happened to the American spirit.
