More Obama Hope & Change, Poll Shows America Less Respected than Two Years Ago


Hows that “HOPEY, CHANGEY” thing working out for you America?

According to a new poll, most Americans say the United States is less respected in the world than it was two years ago. Oops, wouldn’t that be under President George W. Bush?


Obama & Holder, perfect together

Wasn’t some of candidate Barack Obama’s campaign rhetoric that he would make America more respected in the world and make nicey nice with our friends and enemies? It would appear from this most recent poll that Obama’s bowing and apology tour as well as his policies  have failed to make that respect promise come to fruition.

A majority of Americans say the United States is less respected in the world than it was two years ago and think President Obama and other Democrats fall short of Republicans on the issue of national security, a new poll finds.

The Democracy Corps-Third Way survey released Monday finds that by a 10-point margin — 51 percent to 41 percent — Americans think the standing of the U.S. dropped during the first 13 months of Mr. Obama’s presidency.

“This is surprising, given the global acclaim and Nobel peace prize that flowed to the new president after he took office,” said pollsters for the liberal-leaning organizations.

The poll also shows that Americans don’t trust Obama or Democrats on the issue of national security and keeping America safe. Barack Obama, how is that AG Eric Holder and the DOJ decisions to hire lawyers who have represented terrorists and then withholding their names working out?  This will certainly play well in November 2010 and 2012.

On the national security front, a massive gap has emerged, with 50 percent of likely voters saying Republicans would likely do a better job than Democrats, a 14-point swing since May. Thirty-three percent favored Democrats.

• “Keeping America safe”: Democrats now trail by 13 points (34 percent to 47 percent.) The gap was just 5 points in July 2008.

• “Ensuring a strong military”: Democrats trail by 31 points (27 percent to 58 percent.)

• “Making America safer from nuclear threats”: Democrats trail by 11 points (34 percent to 45 percent,) “despite the president’s strong actions and speeches on steps to reduce nuclear dangers,” the pollsters said.

As Hot Air reminds us, this was a poll of Americans and not foreigners, however, it sheds light on how we perceive ourselves as being respected around the world. Let alone how safe we feel under Barack Hussein Obama.

FYI, this poll was done by Democrats Democrats James Carville and Stanley Greenberg.

      Who likes war…we already know, who liked the bombing and killing of our Americans in 911…no one could of kept us safer and cared more for our country than Bush…Obama said that 911 was our fault, no possible way could that of been, we know what side he is on…the majority of American’s voted for the war, it just has lasted longer than expected, we have never fought a terrorist war before, it’s a whole different ball game…Obama has now followed the stragedy of the Republican party that they originally laid out…he knows he lied all through his campaign and continues to do so….just how far does he really think he can go…he’s already exceded his limits as a President and has failed his job of leading this country in the right direction…people that voted for him listed to the Hopey, Changy thing….there are die-hard Democratic voters that never did any research on Obama, just listened to his “We can Change, Yes We Can….many senior citizens that didn’t know about his background….just voted because they have been Democrats all their lives…I recall at the voting polls a women in her late 80′s responded to a Democrat voter in terms of glee, little did she know…I wanted to say something but feared that she might have had a traumatic experience…so I didn’t…Obama bused in people, probably illegal immigrants, such as his aunt, and allowed not registered voters to vote…a background investigative history needs to take place in his victory…Hillary should of won for the Democratic Party….!!!! NS i THINK SHE WOULD AGREE!!!!!!!!!!

      A lot of Democrats have figured out he is not what he is supposed to be…and question their loyalty to the Democratic party…liars, cheats, thugs and more, the surrounding thieveing cronies of the Obama administration….!!!!

      Take his home, all of his assests, his investments, any illegal transactions, etc and start paying America back for all the monies he has incurred and stolen…He said his money came from book sales, BS, I never even heard of his books, a way to hide money and hopefully not get caught…!!!! Pig, he is one wearing the lipstick….!!!

      That is in no way surprising.

      The question is why? Is it our president? The rest of the government? The emotional turmoil that our “news” media wring out of every unimportant fart they think they can smell? The fact that patriotism now means stabbing your government in the back? Tea partiers?

      And last but first of all: Why ask Americans about the state of the standing of America in the outside world? Did they poll a sample of mind readers? Impressive.

      Asking foreign people would have been reasonable, but more expensive or cumbersome. This is, again, just cheap emotionally whipped up crap.

      Well, enjoy your latté.

      Rudy Guiliani’s firm defended terrorists, what does that make him?

      America is no less safer now than it was before. Ridiculous.

      Obama is poison to this country and its founding principles. He knows not what he is doing.

    11. brie. on March 9th, 2010 5:00 pm

      America is less safer now than it was ever before.>>>.you idiot!!!! Get out of here with your comments…..!!!!!

      I seriously doubt the truth of this, but if we are less respected than a year ago it it probably because the rest of the world sees our lunatic fringe teabaggers, and the sustained efforts of the Republican party to shut down government. How would you expect the civilized nations of the world, who have national health care systems to care for all of their citizens, to react toward an America where great numbers of people are going insane over the idea of a law passed that will give us what the other nations already have? Of course they have lost respect for us. I’ve lost respect for us.

    13. Scott on March 10th, 2010 6:57 am

      I love the idiot leftist on here saying this isn’t true; when the FACTS point to the truth. We are MUCH less respected. They LAUGH at Obama overseas.

      Get your head out of Obama’s arse, wipe the crap from your eyes and open them and maybe you will see what is actually happening.

      #12: then move to cuba and let someone who still cares breathe the air that you now waste.

    20. Dolf on March 11th, 2010 6:17 pm

      Obama has the same respect as Clinton or Bush sr. overseas.

      GW Bush however (or to be more precise…the GW administration) did not.
