CBNNews.com - Author Tony Blankley says he feels the U.S. can come out on top despite its current economic crisis.
In his book, American Grit: What it Will Take to Survive and Win in the 21st Century, Blankley lays out a plan for national survival.
"I'm optimistic that if we get smarter and tougher that we will be able to lead through our children the same kind of strong, safe country that we've inherited from our parents," he told CBN News.
In his book, Blankley criticizes President Obama, calling his plan for national service "a weak substitute for what America really needs."
He also addresses education reform, saying that Obama "will fail to address one of the biggest problems in our education system: the failure to teach patriotism."
