    .Global Views of U.S. Helped by Obama, Survey Says

    A new global survey has found a vast improvement in views of the United States since the election of President Barack Obama.
    Europeans, in particular, seemed to be responding positively to Mr. Obama. The number of Britons saying that they trusted the American president to do the “right thing” in world affairs soared to 86 percent this year, under Mr. Obama, compared with just 16 percent last year, under President George W. Bush. The increase was slightly larger in both Germany and France.

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

    I don't care what the rest of the world thinks. We're not responsible for or to them. I care about performance and how the President is doing in regards to America and our freedom, our liberty, and our Constitution. And as such, we haven't had anything decent in decades. The world can think Obama is the greatest thing since slice bread. He still hasn't done anything good as President, nor improved our lot, lessened government, gotten us out of occupational wars, etc. They can say "Oh Obama is great", or think that he is so much better than Bush; but they are fools for thinking so and it shows how little actual information their opinion is generated from. Obama is on par with Bush, just as bad if you ask me.

    Obama is all smoke and mirrors, once you try to take an actual measurement you see that nothing has changed at all.

    No, Bush and Cheney also didn't care what the rest of the world thought of their actions. Well guess what, most of us do. Most of us are proud when America is respected around the world, and looked up to. That doesn't make them fools, we were the fools for allowing Republicans to ruin America's reputation.

    Not surprising at all considering how much Bush was despised. People say it doesn't matter how people view US but it does matter and it matters alot, the image of a country helps it globally

    We're fools for letting the Republocrats ruin this Republic. We can be friendly and on good terms with the rest of the world. But in the end, our President is not to pander to the ideals and whims of the world. The world doesn't get a say in our government. If they like us fine, if they hate us, then look at the reasons as to why and if it's something fixable do something. But if that something goes against what's best for America, then live with it. I'm proud of America being the freest Republic in the world, the greatest country born, the idealism of freedom and liberty for all, and I damned well want to keep it that way. The Repbulocrats acting against that is well more a bigger concern to me than what some people across the pond think about our President.

    The president just like all the other scum in office are our elected representatives,so what ever they do they do in our name and on our behalf. So the president tossing the salad of Eurotrash and terrorist sympathizers is really we the people tossing the salad of eurotrash and terrorist sympathizers and other degenerate scum. I do not give a damn if the rest of the world likes us. We should cut off all foreign aid and if we have any military installations we should move them back to the US so our troops can spend their money on American soil and defend American soil.
    "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"

    Fortunately, you will be out of sight in your 12' X 12' cabin in the wilds of Montana, holed up with your firearms, your bible, and an 8 year cache of supplies. Now, if we can only cut off your internet connection...
