Well, seems 47% (and growing) of the voting population is more euro-ized than most thought. And the euro'z that don't like the U.S seems to be growing, thanks to the dangerous aliéné.

Wait until France says something good about Obama...and we'll have more of the ignorant "Freedom Fries" and snarky comments about the French from braindead rightists once again....



Sad that repugs NEED France on their side .....LOL!
Yep. Recall how dismissive they were of the positive words from the Russian president. No irony here, nope, not at all.

Not so fast. Sarkozy and his party took a beating in France's most recent election. He is no longer admired by the French as before.
Anyone should check out this:
http://www.eutimes.net/
The publication seems to be a far right periodical which doesn't hide its anti-muslim sentiments. It could be that such a periodical is favored by Europe Right wing extremists, such as France's National Front, led by Jean-Marie LaPen. Maybe Germany's and England's skinheads like the paper as well.

PARIS — President Barack Obama has catapulted past the Dalai Lama as the most respected world leader among West Europeans and Americans, according to a poll released Friday.

It was Obama's first appearance in the bimonthly survey, "World Leaders," which was first conducted in November by Harris Interactive for the International Herald Tribune and the all-news television channel France 24. Obama was sworn in on Jan. 20.

His ratings contrast sharply with those of his predecessor, George W. Bush, whose Republican Party was routed in the U.S. elections in November. Earlier results indicated that Bush was considered powerful but was not respected. The new survey shows Obama as the No. 1 world leader on both fronts.
Those "online polls" are the most reliable for sure. This particular "online poll" was done right after Obama was inaugurated - way back then, Obama was popular in the USA also.

The rest of the world may not have agreed with Bush, but most respected and feared him- that is what we need for foriegn policy. The current world leaders think Obama is a joke and have no respect at all for him. That creates a dangerous world, in which our enemies, knowing we have a weak leader, are emboldened to strongly advance agendas for thier own nations which may occur at the expense of the US. When the POTUS is weak, there will be little consequence.

See the difference?
A lot of people did not like George Bush, both here and around the world. Even though they did not like some of his policy, they respected him as a man of his word and a great leader. There is a lot of difference between public perception based on news reports and what the leaders of these countries really think about leadership.

Obama is all about Obama, and they all know it. The list of petty actions (Netanyahu & Dalia Lama using the rear entrance) rudeness to world leaders and lack of even a reasonable protocol and good manners has taken it's toll.

There is a serious lack of trust both here and around the world.

Oh well then you'll want to peruse the more recent Pew Survey that I posted as well confirming that "online Harris poll"

Enjoy.
