Just returned from a European trip visiting several countries. I heard several Europeans, from several different countries, talk about how absurd the American people were for blindly following Obama and thinking how he could somehow solve everything. They think it's laughable that so many people in the US thought that electing Obama was such a "cool" thing and that it somehow makes the US look better in the world. They think Americans are just obsessed with movies and television.

Almost 90% of Europeans wanted Obama to become the President. So I guess they think these same things about themselves, too?

According to the latest poll, only 4% of the population of Israel believe Obama supports their nation.

The OP isn't true. Europeans were very vocal about their endorsement of Obama. Most of them, like most of us, saw that there was no other option anyway.

No intelligent American ever thought that anyone could clean up the entire pile of $hit that The Bush/Cheney Crime Famly left behind.

Glad you put in "no intelligent American". After all, they do have one American who said on video that Obama was going to pay for her home and car and whatever else.

And yet another poll indicates that 64% of leftwingers think Israel should be a European nation.
