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?
The "rest of the world ... respected" Bush? What planet have you been living on? The rest of the world may have feared Bush because he was so dumb, but they certainly didn't respect him.

Links proving that the CURRENT WORLD LEADERS think Obama is a joke, please.

You may want to study some military history - France was the superpower in Europe for longer than the US has existed. Kipling said it succinctly: "Their business is war, and they do their business."

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!
Now see, I was just about to chime in with, "but he's French" and you blew it so now I have to join my peers and put France on a pedestal. <sigh>

I googled Obama and Insane and got 6 million hits so I'm guessing Sarkozy wasn't the first to say it. Is it the same as saying he's "lost in a labyrinth?"

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.
Your poll was taken Feb 09 right after the inogaration....lol
Cant get a newer one?

I've been hearing that "Social Security will be broke in 20 years" since the 1960s.

That's - funny. Once Bush threw his little hissy-fit about "Old Europe" not wanting to join in on his little Iraqi crusade, the world grew markedly cold to him. Particularly those countries who'd joined the Afghanistan fight.

Man of his word? He pushed Colin Powell - a man whose name until then was a byword for integrity - out in front to sell the WMD snake oil in the UN.

Bush was widely considered a man markedly, almost comically, out of his depth.
