    "What happened? People simply got sick and tired of poverty, stealing and the impudence of the authorities, their relentless greed and corruption, from oligarchs who climbed to power. People got fed up with all this. Didn’t we have the same in the 1990s? We have had all this. We have been through all this. And this takes place everywhere, so it happened in Ukraine."

    CIA, perhaps. Don't know. I have certainly blamed the State Department

    Rational, you call exchanging 5 terrorists for a deserter is rational. And then tells the American people he served the United States with honor and distinction.

    I'm sorry but a significant number of Americans wanted him to pull out of Iraq, we're the ones that told Obama how high to jump. As to the rest, along with plenty of company, you're still in denial about the effects of a uni-polar world, and the determination of others to combat it.

    No, he should be apologizing for the existence of the USA more. He's slacked off on that lately.

    Oh. You mean you weren't telling a stupid joke?

    For real though, if some of the most ideologically crooked leaders on the planet look at Obama as an irrational actor, he's doing something right.

    Obama sux, no argument there, but you just gave pretty much the worst example possible of why he sux.

    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    Re: Is Obama viewed as "Weak" by Foreign Leaders?

    I think the operative word in your poll is "leader" - not the adjective "weak".

    Many don't see Obama as a leader - not a person who can marshal opinion behind a goal he has in foreign policy. His one leadership move, in Syria, was destroyed by Russia and other players who weren't about to follow Obama's lead.

    The world is a less stable place without strong, American leadership.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    Not in his view. The problem is people keep assuming he shares the policies of the USA that have been in existence for decades and even centuries. He doesn't. He sees the USA's past as fundamentally evil, and this is the same view he has of Christians and Western powers.

    In his view, he is using his power to undo all the evils of the USA, the West, Jews and Christians that he can. Thus, what you see as weakness he sees as his strength.

    Why do people just assume he opposed ISIS but it too weak to act? A more rational conclusion is that he doesn't oppose ISIS at all. Rather, that he supports Muslim insurgents purging the evil Christians and Jews from their presence and in overthrowing the evil governments that exist with the support of the USA and Western powers.

    More specifically, there is NO reason to assume Obama does not proactively support the creation of new Muslim super powers including with nuclear weapons so they can finally shake off the evil oppression and persecutions of the evil Western colonial powers. He sees is actions as uniquely strong, not as weakness.

    Nor any reason to believe he opposes Russia deposing any pro-Western East European country or anywhere else.
