Well, the Europeans seem to like us more.

Not that that's a good thing.

they do?  the shine seems to have worn a bit from even that, given the hosannas that greeted him in 2009, when they were prepared to canonize him in Berlin.

Which Europeans??

The British?  Germans?  French?  Eastern Europe??

I don't think ANY of our allies "like us more" now than they did when they knew they could trust us (before Obama, that is).

I was thinking more like Sweden, Denmark, Norway... all those northern welfare states that America always gets negatively compared to, even though our demographic makeup isn't comparable.

An obvious, glaring failure. But that won't stop the palace guard media from protecting their boy king at all costs.

If I was made king for a day, the media would hate that day.

worse yet, they'd do their level best to get everyone to believe that the day never happened at all.  Sort of the reverse of the movie Groundhog Day.

I suppose that it's possible that US/Scandinavian relations have 'improved' because of Obama's radical socialism, but I'm not sure there is any empirical evidence to back that up.
