My word! I must say that it never ceases to amaze me as to how the world community views the United States.
Nearly 30,000 people in 28 countries were asked to rate countries on their positive impact upon the world. This year 46% of the respondents rated the US's influence as positive - the first time since 2005 that the survey returned more positive votes than negative for America.
Why is that you may ask?
The world loves Obama.
It's called the 'Obama Effect' an intentional proactive policy by the Obama administration!
"After a year, it appears the 'Obama effect' is real" said Steven Kull director Program on International Policy Attitudes (Pipa) at the University of Maryland.
That's right, PIPA.
This is serious,it has been going on since Obama took office!
Here is the goal of the Obama Effect:
"Its influence on people's views worldwide is to soften the negative aspects of the United States' image, while positive aspects are not yet coming into strong focus."
Since Barack Obama entered office, the world's view of the United States has 'improved sharply,' according to a poll carried out by the BBC World Service.
Well, that explains all that bowing, ring finger kissing, and genuflecting Obama has been doing around all those Kings, Dictators, and Prime Ministers of the world.
Now, will someone explain to me where an opinion of us makes us freer, or stronger, and/or safe from the terrorist mentality we face in America today?
