Did you know that Obama has restored our position in the world? The polls say so, so it’s true. Everyone loves us!
“No. 1, I think that we’ve restored America’s standing in the world,” Obama said, citing polls about public confidence in the United States around the world.
“We’ve seen very specific areas of cooperation around the nuclear issue,” he said. “At the time of my inauguration, the world community was still divided on what Iran’s intentions were… We mobilized the international community… You now have validators like the International Atomic Energy Agency, you’ve got the P-5 plus one, which includes Russia and China, all saying to Iran, you’re on the wrong side of history here.”
“There is no doubt that, in the same way that on domestic policy our first job was to stabilize the situation and prevent disaster, on the international stage our first job was to stabilize the situation to allow us to move forward,. A lot of our initiatives have not borne fruit… The question is, are we moving in the right direction. There is no doubt we are.”
Well of COURSE they like us, they now feel like they can kick our ass and we’ll have no recourse. how arrogant do you have to be to think that you have the ability to make friends with everyone in the world less than a year? The only think you’ve done is WEAKEN us, and other countries now feel empowered.
Are me moving in the right direction? Obama says he has no doubt that we are.
I wish I had a fraction of that confidence.
