I saw this chart on Facebook, from some idiots styling themselves the “Anti-Republican Crusaders.” I took one look at it and thought, “There is no better reason to vote for Mitt Romney than this one!”
Yorkshire and Eric know the wealthy lady who kept telling us how much the Europeans wanted us to elect the suave, debonair, much loved and respected John François Kerry in 2004, to replace the wicked George Bush, and I noted that it was perfectly fine with me if Senator Kerry won all of France’s electoral votes.
Mr Romney is not running for President of France, and he’s not running for Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, or President of his home country of Kenya; he’s running for President of the United States. You can look at that list, and see a whole list of countries which would like to see the United States weaker rather than stronger; that’s why they favor the candidate who will make us weaker.
We had a good, nice President elected to replace the evil George Bush, one who was supposed to make us loved throughout the world. They gave him the Nobel Peace Prize before he had done one single thing, just because he wasn’t George Bush. Barack Obama went around the world, bowing to foreign princes, apologizing for how bad we were, and telling us how everything was going to be sunshine and light, and you can ask Ambassador Christopher Stevens just how much fornicating good all of that did us.
We elected Barack Hussein Obama, and the Iranians are trying to build atomic bombs. We elected the guy with the Islamic name, who was going to bring peace, and the Palestinians still won’t stop shooting rockets into Israel. We elected a great conciliator, and the Taliban are still trying to take over Afghanistan. We helped the Libyans themselves throw off the yoke of Muammar al-Qadafi. Ask Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith just how much good that did us.
So, no, I don’t see the views of non-Americans, of pretty much anti-Americans, as being anything worth crediting as important or to be paid any respect. We did it their way in 2008, and all we got was a stagnant economy, less respect abroad, and a weaker America.
