    Are you trying to suggest that those do not think it is the president's job to try to get the rest of the world to like us somehow they must be crazy?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    A President should work in the interests of the US.
    How is a President supposed to achieve that if he is viewed as a retard and and is hated?

    Let me get this straight....

    Because The Obama has brought a world full of post-nationalist socialists, despotic tyrants and self-interested autoritarians to like us a little more, we should be happy?

    I could care less that a bunch of a eurotrash view my president as a retard. It is not the president's job to kiss your ass,the only ass he should be kissing is the voters who put him in office.

    No, as i said it is his job to deliver in the interests of US.
    Bush did alot of grovelling when he tried getting Europe's help in Afghanistan and Iraq and was refused.
    How many times has Bush and Obama asked UK to increase troops?
    Face it, US does need Europe and the world especially since US started wars it cannot afford or win and especially Iran, US cannot get anywhere without European sanctions as EU is Irans main market. Welcome to reality

    The rest of the world doesn't get to hear Obama lie to them every day and he's not bust trying to destroy their economies like he is ours but their day will come.
    Did he score really high in his home country of Kenya or the home of his fellow Muslims in the Middle East?
    Improved attitudes toward the United States were most marked in Western Europe, but also evident in Asia, Africa and Latin America, as well as some predominantly Muslim countries. Oh look his Islamic brothers love him. You can fool some of the people some of the time and the rest of the world with lies all the time.

    The poll that means something is this one. The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 29% of the nation's voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-six percent (36%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -7

    The problem is when the rest of world needs protection they'll find Obama under his bed or in a corner sucking his thumb crying because he will have gutted the military and he wouldn't help any country that isn't Muslim any way.

    The President is to work in our interest, he won't be liked by everyone since US interest will sometimes conflict with other interest. However, that wasn't the phrasing of the OP. The OP makes it sound like Obama is so much greater because he's popular world wide. In that the popularity in and of itself is a great thing, it's not. It could be a means to an end, it could be a by product of good policy; but that's not the manner by which it is presented. The OP makes it sound as if its the job of the President to run out there and make the world love us and by doing so, he's doing a good job.

    Conversely, others have stated (e.g. myself) that determining how good a President is should be based on policy, action, and performance; not pandering to the opinion of the international community alone. Being well liked by Europe in the end doesn't mean a thing, what matters is what the President is doing, what actions he is taking, and his performance in his job and duties delegated to him by the People. And the "People" is not the international community, but rather the American people who own the President and indeed all of the US government. By those standards, Obama is no better than Bush.

    There is a reason the American Communist Party so overwhelmingly endorses and celebrates Obama.

    Coming from a person with 1,337 posts, you're not 1337 at all.

    This is a personal attack, a few days later and we'll see another thread in the basement, "why I was suspended 2".
