The world sees it ....so why can't America? Weren't we the "shining city upon the hill," the world leader for freedom? How did we fall so far behind the curve?
The funny thing is, despite all that Obama has done for Islamic supremacism across the world (i.e. Egypt, Libya, Kenya, Tunisia et al), 69% have no confidence in Obama, schmuck that he is. He'll turn over everything and they'll spit in his face.
Pew: Global Confidence in Obama Plunges
Confidence in President Barack Obama in nations around the world has dropped significantly since he took office in 2009, the Pew Research Center’s Global Attitudes Project reveals.
In China, confidence in Obama has dropped from 62 percent of those surveyed in 2009 to 38 percent today, a change of 24 percentage points.
Confidence in Obama has dipped 13 percentage points in Mexico, 11 points in Japan, 9 points in Muslim countries, and 6 points in Europe.
A majority of respondents still say they have confidence in Obama in every European nation polled with the exception of Greece, where just 30 percent have confidence. Confidence is highest in Germany (87 percent) and France (86 percent).
But a majority in six Muslim nations, including 69 percent in Egypt, have no confidence in the American president.
Pew has also found a sharp decline in worldwide approval of Obama’s international policies, according to the survey of more than 26,000 people in 21 countries. Approval has dropped in China (down 30 percentage points), Japan (19 points), Muslim countries (19 points), Russia (18), Mexico (17), and Europe (15).
Interestingly, 40 percent of Americans disapprove of Obama’s handling of global economic problems, a higher percentage than in France (35 percent), Spain (34), Germany (28), Poland (27), Czech Republic (25), Britain (23), and Italy (18).
And while Europeans’ confidence in Obama has dropped, the overwhelming majority in most countries believe he should be re-elected, ranging from a high of 92 percent in France to 67 percent in Czech Republic. But just 7 percent feel that way in Pakistan, 18 percent in Egypt, 22 percent in Jordan, 31 percent in China, and 38 percent in India.
The Pew Research Center’s Global Attitudes Project conducts public opinion surveys around the world on a broad array of subjects ranging from people’s assessments of their own lives to their views about the current state of the world and important issues of the day.
Among other findings:
The United States is the only nation in the survey that approves of drone strikes on terrorist targets — 62 percent approve and 28 percent disapprove. Disapproval is as high as 90 percent in Greece and 89 percent in Egypt, and is at 63 percent in France and 59 percent in Germany.
