(sorry translation only)

and

I am a recurring viewer of the BBC World News America, along with PBS Newshour, both of whom give a great perspective of the world and the “outside looking in” views of the US. I have seen Katty Kay, one of the BBC anchors based here on talk shows and she knows more about the issues than almost every US politician as she sees the issues with less bias and in a more holistic way which is refreshing. Outside of PBS Newshour, American news anchors tend to talk about the game of politics and steer clear of the substantive issues. Plus the real issues are less tantalizing (Clint Eastwood trumps Marco Rubio, e.g.)

This outside in view is helpful to describe the next point made by Kaplan regarding the world view on the election. According to a another Pew Poll as reported by CNN, global attitudes toward President Obama as a leader make Rice’s comments dubious:

87% of the Germans, 86% of the French, 80% of the British and 74% of the Japanese have confidence in Obama .
More striking than that, 92% of the French, 89% of the Germans, 72% of the British and 66% of the Japanese want Obama re-elected.

It's not like they have much of a vested interest. That's like polling Americans as to who they want to run Germany. Most Americans don't know enough to make an informed decision.

Front National just got ~20% of the actual vote in a Presidential election in France.

These numbers are hot garbage. 92% of the French people do not want a nagger in the Oval Office.

French Foreign Min: French People Prefer Obama in US Race


"Mr. Fabius' comment is backed by a Pew Research Center poll, which showed Mr. Obama is more popular in France
than anywhere else in the world. According to the poll, 92% of French people would like to see Mr. Obama reelected."

They fear Romney's ties to Israeli interests and think that Obama is a better buffer against them.

Also, they link Romney, as a Republican, to Bush, the person they see as the leader who ushered in the present recession and the unbridled, wanton behavior of bankers.

So, I get it. But, as a fiscal conservative, I also see the devestation of Democratic spending.

Democrats give people welfare and foodstamps

Republicans give their billionaire buddies tax breaks and give money to weapons manufacturers.

They want Obama elected because Mitt Romney will draw the world into WW3 for the sake of the Synagogue of Satan.


Most people do not want world wide nuclear destruction. Gee... wonder why?
