Who cares what the rest of the world thinks of our election? Do they ask US who WE think they should elect? That's like an NFL team taking a poll to see who the other teams think they should hire as their head coach.

In some countries they do. And if they don't listen, we just take them over and put who we want in power. But who cares about that right?

Another "what the world thinks" thread. Have you ever considered they want Obama to win so the US will be weakened?

Just like we shouldn't care what goes on between Russia and Georgia.

Oh never mind...

They never think past the end of their noses! What other country takes a poll of who other countries think should be their leader? None! It's ridiculous and embarrassing that US citizens even bring this up. We can't decide for ourselves so we need other countries to tell us who to elect?
