Short Memories....

Of course, one of the big talking points for Obamaniacs is that he will restore America's place in the world as far as its popularity. I find this not only silly, but stupid. The US has never been popular with the world, particularly with arrogant nihilistic Europeans who no longer stand for anything.

This being said, this is what an opinion piece published in Europe says about the potential election of the empty suit, Barak Obama....
But even if he had been a half-Chinese ballet-loving Francophone, he would have been hated by some who should have loved him, for there isn't an American president since Eisenhower who hasn't ended up, at some point or other, being depicted by the world's cartoonists as a cowboy astride a phallic missile. It happened to Bill Clinton when he bombed Iraq; it will happen to Mr Obama when his reinforced forces in Afghanistan or Pakistan mistake a meeting of tribal elders for an unwise gathering of Taleban and al-Qaeda. Then the new president (or, if McCain, the old president) will be the target of that mandarin Anglo-French conceit that our superior colonialism somehow gives us the standing to critique the Yank's naive and inferior imperialism.
The United States has a problem, not just with frothing at the mouth Muslim fanatics, but also frothing at the mouth European socialist fanatics.
