Obama: World Loves Us Again Because of Me

Sphere: Related Content

America has always been thought of as exceptional. When Europe was ablaze and a dictator was destroying everything in his path, we entered the fray and brought Hitler to his knees and his demise. After the war we fought the Soviet scourge for four decades and eventually toppled the ideology that killed millions and spread misery all over the planet.

Most people admired America for our military, our unstoppable economy and our pride in the Great Melting Pot. They also were jealous of us and worked against our best interests constantly yet, every time they got in trouble the first call they made was to us and we responded.

Many around the world wanted us cut down to size because they hated the fact that we were the sole surviving superpower. American liberals must be ecstatic as they've prayed for us to be taken down a peg since the first Gulf War. Their collective dream has been realized. Even if they don't get socialized medicine and cap and trade, they'll always have the vision of us as a second-class power to look back on in their old age.

They finally got their wish as Obama not only has lowered our standing in the world but is as proud as a two-year old who just took their first dump on the potty:

Beijing, China (CNN) -- A little more than a year after his election, President Obama said his administration has laid the groundwork for success on global and domestic matters.

"I think that we've restored America's standing in the world, and that's confirmed by polls," he told CNN's Ed Henry in a wide-ranging interview this week during his trip to China.

"I think a recent one indicated that around the world, before my election, less than half the people -- maybe less than 40 percent of the people -- thought that you could count on America to do to the right thing. Now it's up to 75 percent."
Yeah us, the world loves us again. Especially Vlad Putin who got Obama to give the finger to ally Poland and remove the missile shield or how about Ahmadinejad who is playing us like a yokel from Cedar Rapids visiting NYC for his first time? Or the Chinese who now not only own us but can lead us around like a puppy dog.

Obama must have missed the day they taught Teddy Roosevelt in history. Instead of walking softly and carrying a big stick, it's more like tip-toeing slowly and bowing to everyone. God, I can't wait until 2012.
