approve this measure.

I have to wonder if all those billions of American dollars that were stealthily funneled into European banks had anything to do with that?

Or could it be the European's like the way he's lowered our defenses, level of respect, monetary position, etc. Perhaps they see the destruction of the middle class as our comeuppance?

Besides, who cares what Europeans think anyway?

They're our friends when we're buying their products or when we're bailing out their social failures. They spit on us the rest of the time.

He thinks the world loves him, but he is sorely out of touch with reality!

I have been in Brazil, and I can tell you even most of the conservatives like Obama.

Default Protesters Urging “Obama Go Home” Staged A Violent Protest

Protesters urging “Obama Go Home” staged a violent protest

"According to local news accounts, the demonstrations were organized by trade unions, political parties and social movement protesters." (the irony)

I thought Obama was internationally loved.

Anti-Obama protest turns violent | POLITICO 44

Yeah, he had to cancel another of his grand, meaningless, in the middle of the square speeches he's so fond of giving.

Quote:
The crowd was protesting U.S. participation in enforcing a no-fly zone over Libya, local reports said. While the demonstration outside the U.S. consulate didn't last long, some reports said protests in other parts of the city lasted longer. (See photos here.)
