New Pew poll shows a majority believe US less important in the world
Some of us remember that summer speech in Germany, or the world tour before candidate Obama flew to Denver to accept the Democrat nomination.
It was the kind of "ego trip" that prompted the McCain team to release those "the one" commercials.
According to a new PEW, we've come a long way from that fateful day when German crowds cheered Senator Obama:
"For the first time in nearly 40 years, a majority of Americans believe the United States is less important around the world and that it should mind its own business, a stunning rejection of President Obama's foreign policy just four years after he received the Nobel Prize."
Yes, I forgot about that Nobel Peace Prize!
The PEW poll has really bad news for President Obama's foreign policy:
"By a 56 percent to 34 percent margin, more disapprove than approve of Obama's handling of foreign policy. The public also disapproves of his handling of Syria, Iran, China and Afghanistan by wide margins."
Frankly, I don't like the isolationist attitudes in this poll. At the same time, I can understand why so many Americans are fed up, specially after we watch the pathetic performance of the Obama administration all over. I guess that many Americans prefer isolation to drawing red lines in Syria or angering the Israelis over Iran.
