What the thread was about was really self evident. It was posted seconds after the one upon which it was commenting. I never tried to obtain any info to controvert Darm's thread. I don't care as much as you seem to. I have no idea about the ebb and flow of global public opinion regarding the United States. That's a helluva big phenom, so I'd need to see a gigantic rolling survey, perhaps longitudinally over generations with proportionate surveys of all the countries.
You think it is down and that it's Obama's fault no doubt. I could care less. I do not consider you a reliable source of information. In fact, I consider you to be a dissident socialist who makes it his online raison detri to disseminate lies. So I don't merely consider you to be unreliable, i consider you to be intentionally contrary to fact to destabilize the larger regimes to benefit the 3rd world regimes in some vain hope the successful countries will be stupid enough to act as do those failed states. It isn't happening. You and your kind aren't even in the conversation.
It's all between the dems and Repugs. That's where the game is played. that's where the battle lines are drawn. Your outsider blarney is much ado of nothing. If you find my utter disdain for your failure of adherence to fact to be delicious cake, well, to each his own.
The lady doth protest too much. You hurt your cause in the overstating of it.
