Obama has a lone buddy named Chavez to hold hands with.

He is an embarrassment to the job and has taken the worlds most respected job and turned it into a clown show.

Yeah, this sounds horrible (from the article in question):

“Many of the comments that we read here and there reflect differences of temperament rather than fundamental differences,” said a senior official. “On the fundamentals we are much closer to President Obama than we were to President Bush.”
On financial regulation, climate change, global governance, or even Iran, the positions of Paris and Washington have converged, the official said.
Like his predecessor, Mr Sarkozy plays up differences with the US for domestic purposes.

Correct. Europe has already seen how Obama throws U.S. allies under the bus. Europe has already witnessed leaders with elequoent speech and a yearn for power on a global basis. They are not so easily fooled.

I sometimes get confused. Sometimes I think you all just like to bash Obama no matter what he does, even if it DIRECTLY CONFLICTS WITH YOUR VALUES.


But, it would be crazy for me to think that. You'd have to be mindless partisan sheep for that to be true....
Who said Obama has been strong against Iran??

I'm as confused as are you. I'm not sure what values you think I am subjugating. I supported his decision to send more troops to Afghanistan. I don't think he's done much to garner worldwide support for our efforts there. Sarkozy called Obama naive and wanted stronger language against Iran than Obama. On that, I agree with Sarkozy. Obama missed a huge opportunity there.

I'm not sure where you're going with the Freedom Fries things. I didn't know that someone's like or dislike of France was tied to their political ideology.

Substance, not just emotion, in your responses would be much appreciated in the future.
When someone is NOT TRUSTED you have your substance.

Fact is the man cannot and will not be trusted by us and world leaders.

They know the man is like a snake oil salesman with his own good in mind.

Not turning the blind eye to what Obama is all about would be greatly appreciated in your future post.

You rant and rant, yet never provide any evidence to support your claims. As such, it is merely your own opinion. Many - billions in fact - think Obama's doing a great job. Your opinion based on your ideological perspective does not change that fact.

Considering there are about 7 billion people in the world and a large majority consistently support Obama in global polling, it is, literally, billions. No exaggeration.

Exactly. Why would they put their troops in harms way for a narcissistic man they don't trust and they don't feel he knows what he's doing. You have to be sold on a cause to commit to it. Obviously, they aren't sold on the cause because they can't trust the leadership (or lack of).
