Anything at all (keep it clean) goes here that does not fit in to any of the other forums.

I sure hope so, too. But I'm not sanguine (can you name a single American government during the past who-knows-how-long that had?).

The newly published BBC World Service poll of 20 countries (including Chile) shows a significant year-over-year improvement in how the US is viewed and is atributed to the so-called "Obama effect". For example, the Chile component, 1200 participants polled (face-to-face) across 80 cities, reflects a 55% favorable impression of US influence --- up 13% from 2009. There were similar poll results in 16 of the 20 countries. For those interested in reviewing the complete poll data go to http://www.bbc.com and click on the "Obama effect" item.

What do you expect from the Brits and BBC? No more credibility then any other poll in Europe or anywhere else you might choose to go. Typical MSM all over the world!!!! Sounds like the NY Times and Washington Post polls.!!!
The Euro's would sure like us to join their Socialist bloc. It's great now, but listen to them scream when the USA isn't around to pull their chestnuts out of the fire again.

Gathering from the perceptions of the chilenos around me including my pareja, they haven't slightest idea of what the situation is INSIDE the USA outside topical reporting.

Really, so what? Not like the rest of the world has their act together. We are all fu••ed ideology aside (as it is too late IMO). What amazes more are the idiotic arguments and posts that continue to follow along partisan lines as the ship sinks. :roll:

Given that only about half the workers in the US financially support all fed programs, not surprising.

All that post an opinion should reveal their past employers, type of pensions, etc.

Yes, the days when one might hunch over a SW radio late at night to get the "straight scoop" from the BBC are over. Since Blair gutted the Beeb and placed his party types at every level, their spiel has been predictable.
A SW set is still a useful tool but say...Radio Havana isn't quite the quotable source one needs for informed discourse.

OK, let's say the Euros, etc like us more, dislike us less, whatever. I don't buy it, but let's say. So what? Does that make Iran stop its nuke program? Did the Euros suddenly grow a pair and now they are going to help us? And so on.....

The rest of the world supposedly liking us and $4 will get you a cup of coffee.

Title says it all. What arrogance. If he continues "As Is" but with more "marketing", he and his will get another beating come 2012. I submit that the American public understood his message just fine - and did not like it. But I do hope his massive hubris continues and sets his party up for a massive fall. These people really do think that they are way, way smarter than you and way, way more moral than you.
