Why would I think that other nations like Obama because he DIMINISHES the USA's economic and military prowess more than a guy who will STRENGTHEN it????


PS: Perhaps that's why Obama is against Voter ID Laws.......how many foreigners can he get to vote for him?

Why wouldn't foreign countries like Obama. Our foreign policy is that we let everyone in and give away all our money to foreign nations. He's a pushover.

Israel is the #1 recipient of American handouts. Pakistan is #3.

And they want flip-flop Romney.

Well..Obama just dissed Israel and we shot bin Laden in the eye in Pakistan and snubbed them because they hid bin Laden on us.
Are you surprised at those 2 countries for picking Romney ?

Hilarious.

How come Americans weren't polled to see if they'd prefer Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson or Thóra Arnórsdóttir in the Icelandic presidential elections? This is important stuff.

Or maybe because Romney is just an awful candidate?

Well international would care more about the foreign policy and how it would effect them.
How a politican rules their own people isn't important to another nation. What that nation can get from the US is more important.

What does it say that all but one of our closest allies (the one's who actually back us in our wars with troops and equipment) supports Obama?
