So again, I'm not going to jump up and down just because the President is well more liked; I'm going to base my conclusions on actions and enacted policy. And on that front, Obama is failing.
    I'm not jumping up and down I'm just saying I would rather the rest of the world respect the U.S. more.

    I'd rather have a competent President who could enact real change and start limiting and reducing the power of the federal government.

    Are you so naive to think that a terrorist state like Syria can have a positive effect on Mid-east relations?
    Not putting words in your mouth, you just have no grasp of international relations. It's that simple.

    Despite the braying of ditto-heads in America, the nation's reputation has improved under the new President. Pooh on you.
    That may be, but since the opinion of the rest of the world doesn't elect our President, it really doesn't matter. What matters is that in this country Obama's approval has now dipped below 50%.

    No no, I said less government. Not more, intrusive, big brother government. Got enough of that to last life times.

    I have a question, if conservatives want less federal government then why would conservative support the war in Iraq? More government is needed to conduct a war as opposed to not being in a war.

    Why is this in breaking news? The globalist media has been giving dear leader a lingual colonoscopy the entire time. Much like some here.

    Is there an old old news section?

    I don't support the war in Iraq. I don't support any occupational war.

    You never heard? It was to keep us safe from those WMDs, the ones that never existed and were never found.
