You can always count on Europe. As President Hanky Panky's approval rates are falling—and rightly so—his European admirers are growing by the day, with more joining the fan-club every time he manages to bring America further down:
President Obama makes US popular in Europe again, Pew poll says

Europeans have grown fonder of the US since Barack Obama became President, but Israeli affections have cooled and the Muslim world has barely noticed the new man in the White House.

These are the findings of a global opinion survey published by the Pew Research Centre yesterday. The poll found the biggest change in mood in Western Europe.
Well yeah, of course. Falling economy, rising unemployment, deceitful Left-wing politicians running the show—and record deficits—while seizing private businesses, intimidating their shareholders into silence and submission, and devising ever more audacious taxpayer money-grabbing schemes compared to which Bernie's Ponzi looks like amateur night: now, thank to Obama, my Eurofellow-citizens can truly identify with America.

Quite predictably, the French are the biggest Marxist-America groupies:
The French love America, with 75 per cent pronouncing themselves favourably disposed towards the US. Britain rings in second with nearly 70 per cent, up 16 points since last year.
I'm getting tired of writing I told you so, and you're probably tired of reading it, but still, when it comes to Obama and the French: I told you why he was the perfect candidate, when he was so unfortunately elected.

And no, it has nothing to do with a sudden, renewed Gallic love for the U.S. of A.—Make no mistake, the French are as anti-American as ever. Bush gave them a fierce, proud and powerful America, and they hate him for that. Obama is the agent of a declining one and even, perhaps, the artisan of her demise1.

And they love him for that.
  1. Judging by the amount of books predicting the end of the American "empire" published in France for decades, trust me: they are hoping for that. Obsessively.

So, they asked questions of 1200 in 24 countries and came to the conclusion that EVERYBODY in Europe now loves America because of Barri. Color me underwhelmed. Polling produces the results that the pollsters are paid to produce. Period.

A Pew poll, huh? Would that be a "Pepe LePew" poll? Seriously, with the way That One is dragging the US down, I'll be nothing but glad when Texas finally says "Enough!"

God bless the Germans for giving us the descriptive term:

Schadenfreude!

When we do 1776 v2.0, will you join us? It was indeed the French who helped us to kick ass on The King LAST time. With a heart such as yours, we may do it once more!

Ah, the Europeans (well, a majority; there is a sensible minority who have to put up with them as Americans must cope with their "liberal" fascists)...still bitterly clinging to dreams of empire after all these years.

You would have thought after 1917, 1945 at the very least, they would have woke up and smelled the coffee, and weaned themselves of such nonsense -- but they have not. I only hope America learns from their mistakes -- which sadly, some in my country have not.

I still have hope that America and Americans will weather this -- we may no longer be a "super" power on the other side of this, but hopefully we will still be a strong country, and perhaps that's a good thing for us -- plus the wicked glee at watching the Europeans and assorted hangers on wake up one day and realize nobody is coming to their rescue economically (our banking system is so tied to Europe's if we go down the tubes, they'll take a first class beating -- and we can at least manage to feed ourselves to some degree; and there goes a rather nice market for their high end exports -- heh, heh, heh...deal with China frakkers) or militarily (aka. providing a stablizing force in the region, heheheh, deal with Russia frakkers) is tempting.

Thank God we have a black market that can take up the slack and meet the future needs of Americans just like the prohibition did. Will there be any songs and movies about these hip underground doctors? Imagine an M&M rapping doctor packing heat and a boner during an operation.
