    I'll give G.W. Bush credit for being President of the USA when the 911 attacks happened.

    What more do you want?

    I know that the only massive Al-Qaeda attack on the USA happened while G.W. Bush was in the White House.

    One thing that I've always wondered about that is that if it was Clinton's fault, Why did G.W. Bush take a dump in his pants when it happened ?

    Bush seriously lost it that day, and it's all on tape.

    Note the trending that disapproval is up, and approval is down.
    Not from 2007 & 2008 under Bush, which is what this thread is about. Your conclusion is not only incorrect but opposite the facts you've presented.

    Nice of you to completely ignore what you don't want to see or read.

    Yes, Obama is perceived as a weak and clueless leader in international circles, even steadfast US allies have come to the same conclusion.

    That's not what the link I quoted from your post shows. In fact, it shows graph after graph where most of the world thinks Obama is MUCH better than Bush II.


    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The image of U.S. leadership worldwide was weaker during President Barack Obama's fourth year in office than at any point during his first administration. Median approval of U.S. leadership across 130 countries stood at 41% in 2012, down measurably from 49% approval in Obama's first year. Despite these poorer scores, approval ratings for the most part remain stronger than they were at the end of the last Bush administration.

    You should appreciate that I'm disclosing a more complete picture than many others would.

    I'm not sure if I'd call 3% up in approval 8% down in disapproval a MUCH better opinion.

    May just be that they like a US president easily manipulated and out maneuvered, as we've seen in Obama's Syria and Iran engagements.

    I think that it's far more telling what the historically close British allies are saying, as well as what the Saudi leadership is thinking / hearing. Over all Obama has proven himself to be a 'fair weather' ally, especially in the Syrian situation, where Putin out maneuvered and out shone him, to a more prominent and dominant position than the US has historically held in the region.

    Yes, a much weaker and less influential president on the world stage.
