The World Loves Us, Really

Via Memeorandum:

I for one have stayed up nights worried about "The World's" opinion of the United States so you can imagine my relief when I read that Obama has restored our reputation:

A little more than a year after his election, President Obama said his administration has laid the groundwork for success on global and domestic matters.

"I think that we've restored America's standing in the world, and that's confirmed by polls," he told CNN's Ed Henry in a wide-ranging interview this week during his trip to China.

"I think a recent one indicated that around the world, before my election, less than half the people -- maybe less than 40 percent of the people -- thought that you could count on America to do to the right thing. Now it's up to 75 percent."
Unfortunately, the Iranians, Hondurans and Czechs and Poles were unable to participate in the polls.

Obama has spent the better part of his young administration prostrating and apologizing for the United States to the rest of the world. He's sucked up to tyrants and screwed over allies. Generally speaking Obama's message has been that American has been a screwup but now that he's in charge he'll put us on the right path. No doubt it is a message that the Eurocrats approve. For all of Obama's scraping and bowing, we've gotten next to nothing in return.

Dan Riehl reacts:

What an ignorant, naive doofus this guy is. He seems to put a lot more stock in world polls than he does domestic ones. He dismisses those when it conflicts with his policy goals. This arrogant basturd cares more about what the world thinks of him, than what Americans do. And if he honestly believes the nation's that are important to us in the world, especially potential threats, are going to treat us any differently because of his image obsessed presidency, the guy is as dangerous, as he is clueless about world politics.

The man's a superficial fool, a fraud and a Leftist tool.
Sounds about right.
