Even though many people rip on GWB (as do I), it appears that they secretly support him!
Look at all the recent elections around the world in major countries: Germany, France, Britain, Australia. They’re all going pro-American!
Together, we will smash global Islamo-Fascism, with Bush in the lead.
You got it wrong. By any standard, European politicians are way left of anything you have in the US. Foreign policy was barely an issue in the countries you mentioned. Heck, if you followed closely the French elections, you’d know that Royal had a MUCH tougher stance on Iran than Sarkozy. On a side note, the Swedish right wing current government would fall somewhere near the US’s communist party.
Look at the recent elections in Latin America: Venezuela, Bolivia, Argentina, Ecuador, Brazil.
Look who’s forced to resign next month to give his party a chance at next elections. Tony Blair is a political ghost because of Iraq. Currently, as much as 80% of Brits are opposed to the war.
Look at Italy and the crush of Berlusconi.
Look at Spain and the figurative death of Aznar.
Now, look closer at the approval rates of Merkel’s policy.
Look at the approval rates of your “new Europe” allies. The Kaczynskis’ dramatically low figures are a fine examplep
Look at Putin comparing the USA to Nazi Germany this week.
I’ll skip the part about Hezbollah and Hamas because it’s more related to Israeli foreign policy than Iraq.
Oh, did I mention the heat Bush is taking from the GOP leadership because he is burning their image. I see a lot of pressure on the guy from every side to put an end to the madness.
How much is the approval rate for Bush back home? Last I checked it was around 20%.
And then, HH dares say people love secretly love him. If you secretly collect pictures of him and giggle when you hear his voice, please don’t project that on the rest of the world.
99.99% of the planet wants to fight the Islamo-facists. We don’t need no stinking war in Iraq to do so. We certainly don’t need Bush’s inflammatory rhetoric nor his neo-con BS. All he did is exacerbate things (Blair acknowledged that in his speech). A majority in the Iraqi government has approved a draft bill for timetables to get US troops out.

Yeah and with Russias’ great track record for human rights and free society they should be comparing us to Nazi Germany… How long has it been since they gassed a theater full of their own people to conquer a few Chechen rebels? Funny an ex-KGB agent comparing the US to Nazis.
