We have all heard the rhetoric coming from the left. America is more isolated and despised than it ever has been. All since George W. Bush was elected. In January 2007, in Davos Switzerland, John ‘F’in Kerry (who served in Viet Nam) said, “I've never seen our country as isolated, as much as a sort of international pariah for a number of reasons as it is today.”
Just last year Ted (hic) Kennedy said, “America has gone from leading the world to being despised by the world.”
Pat Buchanan (A RINO opportunist) said in April 2007, “America is severed from old allies and despised around the world.”
Jack Murtha quoted an article saying, “we're more dangerous to world peace than North Korea or Iran.”
Ever since we invaded Iraq, with several Democrats voting their approval, it has been non-stop rhetoric about how hated we are under Bush and how the entire world despises us. Hardly a day has gone by that we haven’t been reminded by someone from the Democrat party of how hated President Bush has made us.
If not members of the Democrat party, we have the leftist crowd from Hollyweird constantly droning on about how Bush has made America so hated.
In one more exmaple of just how wrong they all are, look at yesterday’s election results in France.
Nicolas Sarkozy, a French immigrant and conservative, handlily won the election over Socialist Segolene Royal. Sarkozy is accused of being more American than French and ran on a ticket of closer ties to America.
No, this does not mean he intends to send Troops to Iraq, but it does mean that he won’t be openly objecting to and trying to block every move made by America as did outgoing President of France, Jacques Chirac. What it may mean is that we now have another ally in opposing Iran’s nuclear ambitions. He describes Iranian leaders as "extremely dangerous."
With a voter turnout of about 85%, 53% voted for Sarkozy knowing they will be closer aligned to the USA.
Lest you think this is just a fluke, or that Karl Rove somehow made it to France to rig the elections there, the May 2, 2007 issue of Germany’s ‘Der Spiegel’ ran an article about their leader, Angela Merkel, “The Road to America,” Merkel’s Crowning Achievement. Even though the article leans towards how she is leading America, the first paragraph says it all, “Germans accustomed to Angela Merkel's domestic track record are hard-pressed to recognize the chancellor as she re-orients German foreign policy and takes it back toward its rightful place: at America's side. Thank goodness!”
As wrong as the Democrats consistently are, it should be no surprise that their assessment of just how despised the USA is around the world is just as wrong.
While these two examples won’t lead to their countries committing their Troops to Iraq, it does signal an end to a lot of the opposition we have faced in overthrowing Saddam Hussein and decimating Al Qaeda and other loosely affiliated Jihadist groups of radical Muslims.
If nothing else, it does show that Europeans seem to like the idea of being more closely aligned to the USA under George W. Bush.
Maybe the time has come for our liberal prima donna celebrities that stated they would leave America, should Bush be elected, to keep their promise. And, take some liberal socialist politicians with you, please.
They may have trouble relocating to France, though. It seem the citizens of France may have had enough of the liberal Socialism that has robbed them of their dignity, wealth and courage.
