    Ha, and I missed the big moment. Thanks for pointing it out. Fortunately, I'm always 1337

    Despite the braying of ditto-heads in America, the nation's reputation has improved under the new President. Pooh on you.
    Nope.

    Obama is viewed mostly positively, but attitudes toward America generally are not improving much, if at all, in most countries.

    Maybe this should be in the media bias forum. I haven't seen a big difference between Bush's foreign policy and Obama's. Maybe the change in the #s is due entirely to the difference in media coverage of the two presidents.

    ... being viewed favorably by other nations isn't inconsistent with the self-interest of the United States. On any given issue, from trade and economics, to war and joint military action, to collaborations on other global issues, it is always easier to secure the cooperation of other nations when they like you as opposed to disdaining you. If Bush hadn't been so heavy handed in his dealings with other countries, perhaps we would have received more than nominal help from other countries (excepting Britain) on the War on Terrorism.

    so true

    Yes, it does matter if the world has a more favorable view. I know it is 'cool' to sit around and say why should we care. Well, we should care when it becomes a political liability for others to support us. When we need more support both financially and militarily in Afghanistan. When we rely on cooperation with other nations, especially in the Middle East, for intelligence. When we are reliant on citizens of other nations to purchase our crap, to buy our Pepsi and GM. We need the good will of people to allow military over flights, and access to ports.

    Instead of a cowboy that shoots from the hip we now have a floppy-eared community organizer who constantly steps on his own dick.

    But hey, as long as the EU and the Turd World like us, who cares!

    (I think they like Obama because he's about as incompetent as their own leadership, but that's just my opinion ...)
