Yes I read the article and it showed how the rest of the world thinks your great leader is a failure just like most in the US feel. The little tidbits tossed out on this thread are nothing but the MSM spin like usual. Why the even printed this is beyond me. Somebody probably lost his job. From Europe to the middle east to Africa they are all "disappointed" according to this article.

Only thing that matters is what folks here think and they aren't too happy. So swoon away sheep because your time is running out.

It would appear that your stated opinion of how President Obama is perceived is around the world is not held by everybody.

Obama Winning Investors by 49%-38% Against Romney in Poll - Bloomberg

Quote:
Global investors increasingly prefer President Barack Obama to Republican challenger Mitt Romney and most say they believe the incumbent will remain in the White House for another four years.

Asked who would be the better leader for the global economy, 49 percent favor Obama against 38 percent for Romney, according to a quarterly Bloomberg Global Poll. In January, the two candidates tied on the question.
Quote:
By the same margin, they say Obama has a better vision for the U.S. economy, according to the survey of 1,253 Bloomberg customers, who are investors, analysts or traders.

Obama “managed the U.S. economy pretty well, solving a lot of imbalances created by the previous administration,” says poll respondent Mario Di Marcantonio, 35, a senior portfolio manager at Eurizon Capital in Milan.

“I believe the second Obama term will be better than having a U-turn with Romney,” he says. “More stability will mean more visibility and more investment in the future.”


The American presidential election is dividing foreign investors and those based in the U.S., where Romney is favored across the board. U.S. investors choose the Republican candidate as best for the global economy by more than 2-to-1. Respondents outside the U.S. prefer Democrat Obama by almost 3-to-1 in the poll, conducted May 8.
Quote:
Even among U.S. investors, Obama’s standing has risen during the past four months. Thirty-one percent have a favorable opinion of the president against 27 percent in January. Seventy percent of non-U.S. respondents have a favorable view of the president, up from 65 percent in January.

Poll respondents hardly fit the demographic profile of typical Obama supporters. Almost 80 percent describe themselves as politically right of center or centrists. Ninety-five percent are men. Two out of five of those who disclosed their net worth are millionaires.
Quote:
Betting on Re-Election

Investors in every region are betting on an Obama re- election. Seventy-four percent say he will either certainly or probably win another term, about the same as in January.

Investors in Obama’s America have been rewarded. The U.S. stock market’s benchmark Standard & Poor’s 500 (SPX) Index climbed about 8 percent this year and is up 60 percent since Obama took office.

Respondents are now more willing to credit Obama for improvements in the U.S. economy. Forty-seven percent say he deserves credit, the same portion as says he doesn’t. In January, 43 percent attributed improvement to him against 49 percent who didn’t.

They also see another Obama term as favorable to U.S. markets, with 48 percent saying the president’s re-election would be a “good thing” for domestic markets compared with 36 percent who predict it would be detrimental. In January, only 44 percent saw another Obama term as favorable for U.S. markets and last December 38 percent thought so.

Actually, it says nothing of the sort, perhaps your time would be better spent working to improve reading comprehension than munching sour grapes?

I don't read articles with my left handed spin meter at work. Perhaps you should try it once in a while?

Nothing new. I was driving through Albany (whenever I do, I want some good comic humor) listening to Limbaugh's radio show. What a joke. He was frothing about the new Wash. Post story about Mittens and his bullying of a perceived gay student and about how the Post won't do any vetting and stories about Obama's college papers, transcripts, etc. What a spin doctor - I thought to myself, "why would they search for something that isn't there? Isn't that your job, Rush?" You'd think with all the Fox News ranting they'd find something about Obama's college years to fuss about - but NOPE! That's because there isn't anything significant.

Rush: "Why isn't the Post doing my work for me? I'm a fat, lazy, ignorant slob."

Yeah, I think we know what you're doing with your left hand As soon as you point out exactly where in the article it says the world considers Obama a failure you'll gain some credibility, until then you can only be considered someone that reads something and understands nothing.

l hear all this jazz about how everybody everywhere hates Obama but he remains likely winner in November. That either makes Willard completely awful or that somebody is lying. I mean we heard the same things 4 years ago. Hilary voters would walk away from him, independents wouldn't back him but on election day everything magically changed. Shoot he was allegedly dead to rights against Hilary and then again after the Palin announcement but just keeps winning.

I thought the lady in Portugal that thought he could help with her money problems was awesome. Because, hey, if like, France changes leaders, I totally look for them to help me get some cash. WAit, no. No, I don't. Was also funny to see that even though they see his as a disappointment, he's still better than Romney. I guess the rest of the world is pretty observant, after all.
