The Whole World Is Watching

Some Americans live in a bubble. They only care about how they feel. They do not care about how they look to the rest of the world.

Guess where they learned that?

Anyway, when selecting a president Americans should ask this question: will people around the world respect us more if we elect X or Y?

You might believe that people around the world like Barack Obama more than they liked George Bush. And yet, foreign policy is not a popularity contest. Besides, the world’s people do not control the governing institutions in very many of the world’s governments.

Ask yourself this: do the powers-that-be around the world respect Obama more than they respected Bush? And would they respect America more if it were led by the world’s leading cuckquean?

Anyway, President Obama is flying off to China for a state visit and some meetings.

How did the Chinese leadership thrown down the welcoming mat for him?

Allow the Daily Mail to tell the story:

A mouthpiece of the Chinese Government has described President Obama as 'insipid' and claims U.S. voters are sick of his 'banality'.
The state-run Global Times has published an editorial deriding the leader a few days ahead of his visit to the growing economic and military powerhouse.

It stated: 'Obama always utters "Yes, we can," which led to the high expectations people had for him. But he has done an insipid job, offering nearly nothing to his supporters.

'U.S. society has grown tired of his banality.'

The criticism comes in the wake of a crushing defeat in the Midterm elections worse even than the most pessimistic forecasts of the Democrats' strategists, with the Republicans now in control of both the upper and lower Houses of Congress.

The Global Times lists the 'lame-duck' president's perceived failures in foreign policy and the economy.

It said Obama took: 'U.S. troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan, but left no peace.

'Osama bin Laden was killed during his tenure, but (ISIS) has emerged from the Middle East.'

Despite an improvement in the American economy, the editorial criticises his inability to lower the income gap, claiming ordinary Americans have not benefited from the recovery.
Does the Chinese government respect America? Do the leaders of any country respect President Obama?

Surely, the current state of world politics suggests that major world leaders do not respect our president. If they do not respect our president they surely do not respect us. After all, we made him president.

So, the next time you ask yourself who to vote for, keep in mind the old slogan:

The whole world is watching.

If presidential actions are now to be based on PROPAGANDA editorials from economic rivals, we certainly deserve no respect from anyone.

If only we had a government controlled press, we could hide all the messy political fights and give a unified narrative to the world, and then everyone would respect us for our social order.

Maybe the NSA can tell us what all the world leaders really think? But snap(!), foreign leaders might not respect us for spying on them. SNOWDEN, you traiter!!!!

Why would (not 'should') China respect Obama? They may respect our capabilities, but those are diminishing because of him, and they can play the waiting game. Same for Russia.
