Well I guess it had to be the premature Nobel Peace Prize that was the dead giveaway.

I really don't see it... I'm in Europe and nobody is going out of their way to be extra nice to me.

Eh...seems like business as usual.

Obama has always been well received on the World stage, even prior to the election he was the one most other countries admired. Like him or not, that's a fact.

Thanks to Barack Obama and the people who voted him into office. It's good to be back on top!

For those who disagree about Obama: If it wasn't his election that put the U.S. back on top of the list of most admired countries, then what do you think is responsible for it? What else could it be?

Who says American was and is an admired country? Was this information taken from tribe members on Arrogance Island or some unknown country?

I'm not sure it's such an honor to be the most admired country. When I take into account that most of the rest of the world's governments are socialist or communist, and we have made strides in that direction under Obama, I feel like we are losing some of what made us special in the past and lead to our greatness. The American experiment was based on liberty and freedom, individual achievement, charisma, ingenuity, and morality. If those who do not possess those traits admire us, should we rejoice?

So when we were the most admired while Reagan was President, was that a bad thing too?
