    And I discounted this sort of examination of Obama until he made a habit of it. He's consistently displayed a weak image in foreign affairs. That is totally unrelated to his golf swing or how he takes his steak.

    But no one takes it somewhat seriously except the mainstream press, bloggers, and the American people (for about a few days). That alone should tell you something.

    I think that is one thing that the left and the MSM like to ignore, the fact that we are perceived as week and pushovers around the world now. Countries like Iran, Russia, N Korea, etc... look to take advantage of us. All after Obama proclaimed how he was going to "improve" our image around the world. Well, we are not respected, we treat out allies like crap, and they even hate Obama. He couldn't be doing much worse for this country.

    Of note, Obama has a lower approval rating than Bush in Europe, Asia, the Middle east, and africa-and has for some time.

    Odd how the media rarely covers this.

    "
    Comparing him to the great leaders who came before him, Obama likened Mandela's legacy to that of Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Abraham Lincoln."

    President Obama's words were supported by those of Senator Ted Cruz and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who both spoke out against those critical of Nelson Mandela.

    Cruz and Gingrich have finally said something that I agree with.

    Keep wishing, Obama will be in the White House until another Democrat takes his place in 2017.
