Post As Obama Years Draw to Close, President and U.S. Seen Favorably in Europe and Asia

My focus on this is not really regarding Obama, but rather towards the international opinion on Trump v Clinton.

Repubs love to PRETEND they are interested in the international opinion ...
... as long as they can proclaim it swings their way. Claims from the right on how the world is supposedly laughing at us because of Obama are littered around different threads on this forum...
But when the facts don't back them up, screw those foreign guys...

Regarding international opinion on Trump vs Hillary, there is a marked difference...

Terrorists, Russia, Iran, and China will be sad when Obama leaves office. No longer will they be able to bully us around and make an embarrassment of our country.

Russia, Iran and China were not included in those polled.
Tell me which country above that was polled you want to proclaim as "terrorist".

Did you even bother to look at what was shown or did you just hit reply and spout off?

Candidate Obama declared himself as a "citizen of the world" standing at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. As President the citizen of the world has set about reducing the US to just one among many nations with apology tours, deriding American exceptionalism and prostration before dictators in Iran and Cuba. Reducing the US to a subservient role in world affairs such as outsourcing diplomacy to the Russians in Syria, is the foreign policy aspect of the fundamental transformation of America into a country modeled after the socialistic Western European government's Obama and Hillary idolize.

The Pew survey conveniently neglects to define "do the right thing" reducing it to a sort of populaity contest. Do the right thing for whom? Why the foreign countries surveyed of course.

Recently the British conducted a referendum on their continuing membership in the EU, the sort of subservient internationalism Obama pursues for the US. The polls confidently predicted an overwhelming affirmation of Britain's membership in the EU. How did that turn out? But hey, we have a poll that show's Obama and Hillary will take better care of international elitist interests than Trump.

I have a lot of friends overseas and not a one of them trusts Trump. In fact they ask WTF is wrong with Americans. It's hard to explain how the right wing media works like a cult.

I am far more interested--as in, far more interested--in satisfying American interests than in satisfying global interests.

And I would imagine that those around the world are especially enamored with an American president who places global interests first, whenever the two collide...

No, you just want to win the election even if it divides the country. The right has been dividing the country since Obama was elected. Now they are willing to vote for a con man just to stick it to the left, the world or anyone else.

Trump is a revenge vote for simpletons.

There we go, challenge the notion Obama and Hillary are demigods and out pops the hate. Hillary gets to divide the voters by calling her opponent's supporters deplorable and irredeemable, but the Right is made up of divisive simpletons.

I'm sure you make yourself as clear with your explanations as you do on this forum.
