Not true. If anything, our alliance with the US is closer now then it was during the Bush administration. The NSA spying matter has probably been the most serious issue that has alienated US allies, especially the general public of those countries since governments are generally secretly more or less fine with stuff like that. But it hasn't been enough to say that the US no longer has allies, you still do, and don't say you don't for internal political purposes because it is not fair to us.

Sorry to put it to you bluntly, but the rest of the world is clearly getting tired of US exceptionalism.

Not only due to NSA-spying, but a whole slew of extremely damaging scandals; evidence of military interventions executed upon contrived or feeble justifications; as well as incompetent domestic operations. Obama is also seen as a weak and ineffective leader. Spying on the EU leadership was just incompetent. It was extremely poor judgment.
