    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 ...)
    I'm not following you...haven't seen that Obama has made any foreign policy gaffs yet. Oh, you mean he steps on his dick because it's so.....BIG. Yeh, I hate when that happens.

    It wouldn't change his mind nor yours, so why bother? They've been detailed here and elsewhere ad nauseum. If you choose to remain ignorant, that's your problem.

    Why is everyone assuming the information in the opening post is true? It's not.

    The world has a positive view of Obama, not a more positive view in the U.S.

    I feel honored that you would use one of my remarks in your signature. However aren't you worried that you might be actually seen as patriotic/nationalistic? The other libs might disown you that seeing how liberals generally frown on patriotism/nationalism.
    "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"

    Despite the braying of ditto-heads in America, the nation's reputation has improved under the new President. Pooh on you.
    Hypo: Imagine two candidates with identical political platforms.

    Candidate A has a 51% approval rating in the US and a 35% approval rating overseas.

    Candidate B has a 49% approval rating in the US and an 85% approval rating overseas.

    Who's the better candidate?

    In 2008, most Muslim publics rated bin Laden as high, or higher than they rated President Bush. But in the current survey Obama inspires confidence in many more people than does the al Qaeda leader. However, in the Palestinian territories and Pakistan, bin Laden’s ratings still top Obama’s by sizable margins. (Lebanon is the only country in the survey where Bush’s ratings had been higher than bin Laden’s among Muslims in recent years).
    Call me silly, but I would have thought that we would want LESS people preferring Bin Laden over a U.S. President.

    Care to restate your statement?

    Either put up or shut up. Don't pretend there is a long list of Obama gaffes we are choosing to ignore. If there are so many, it won't be hard for you to list three foreign policy mistakes Obama has made. If you are on target, you will get credit.

    his numerous snubbing of the UK and various gaffes on gifts given....

    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.
