GWB's Re-election - International Reaction.

The polling agency Globescan recently conducted a survey looking at international reaction to GWB's reelection. In answering the question 'Do you think the reelection of GWB is positive or negative for peace and security in the world only the people of India, the Philippines and Poland viewed this as positive. The countries that saw it as negative are; Great Britain, France, Russia, China, Japan, Italy, Australia, Canada, Brazil, Germany, Mexico, South Africa, Turkey, Argentina, Indonesia, Chile, Lebanon and South Korea.

Another question looked at whether people viewed US influence in the world as mainly positive or mainly negative. More See US Influence in World as Negative Than Positive.

Doug Miller, President of GlobeScan, comments, “Our research makes very clear that the reelection of President Bush has further isolated America from the world. It also supports the view of some Americans that unless his Administration changes its approach to world affairs in its second term, it will continue to erode America’s good name, and hence its ability to effectively influence world affairs.”

The question I have is primarily aimed at the American members here at A.net; Are you at all surprised or concerned about such a negative reaction, or do you not even think about it?

I can't say I am too surprised at the results of these tests. I am very much against Bush's policies and the direction that this country is headed, but then I also look at the times when Clinton was president. Even with all the prosperity and good image that America had, there were always those who still felt the need to say negative things about the US. So I try not to think too much about it. The time will come when Bush will no longer be president, and hopefully we will then have our chance to repair our image. But of course, it's a 2 way street.

Stowaway,

Why do you consider the results of an opinion poll to be propaganda?, that makes no sense.

Honestly, Americans look at these results and think about them for a few minutes and then go on with their lives.

It's like looking at a magazine in a Doctors office, when your name is called, you stop mid-article and put the magazine down and go on with your life without thinking of the article or that magazine again.

The poll itself is not necessarily propaganda, but your case for using it is.

That question is rich with hate, and obsession.

That's a strange thing to say, in what way is that question hateful or obsessive?

For one, you want an American to say, "It does not bother me." You will then be ready to blast them for that.

The cherry on top is the "or do you not even think about it?" part.

Give it a rest Yuki. We all see what you are trying to do. Stay on point and maybe you will get some backing on what could be a legitimate question had it not been posted by you.

You make your own bed with your past threads and comments. If others have any doubt, just take a look at his/her comments.

Isn't it funny that it is always called propaganda when it is against American stance, but not so when it is a pro-american stance?
Like it or lump it Bush is not liked by a majority of the world but it is an enditement on the US that he was voted back. I find it a great shame because of all the Americans I have met, most of them were lovely people and who don't deserve the reputation that they get. It just goes to show what fear and paranoia can do once it gets into a nation's psyche.

Aerorobnz,

There are millions of us here in the U.S. that can not stand the man! He scares the fu(*&^%^ out of me!

This man is no friend to our industry...the working people...he has no values..only values of hate and "what I say goes, and if you don't like it, then go".

Stowaway, it's a valid poll and, despite the over sensitive reaction, it's a valid question.

787, 'had it not been posted by you.'.
What the hell is that supposed to mean?, am I not entitled to ask that question?

You know...i could respond to aero, nwafa, mdsh, and yuki. But its not worth it. I am hearing the same people say the same things. We suffered through Clinton. You get to (if you can call it) "suffer" through Bush.

But honestly, we were hated waaaaay before this president. And we will be hated for current affairs in the future. The people who hate us the most are jealous of US, plain and simple. I am expecting someone to tell me that they are happy where they are. And if you live in the us and don't like it...here's a thought. Move where you will be more happy.

Sorry Xj, we were not hated like we are now!

Suffered under Clinton..yea right. Our economy was never better. Peoples debt load was at the lowest. Respect for fellow Americans were at an all time high. America was respected instead of hated like we are now.

Bush is evil. He is a dictator. He does NOT care about the working American, he only cares about the corporation!

I am very lucky to travel the world..and when I am in different countries I read the local papers and let me tell you, the world has no respect or love for us any more..and THAT you can thank that Jack(&^%% in the white house!

LOL...thats to a certain Bush fellow in 1988-1992. Remember him. The economy was poor from his predecessor. He turned it around in less than four years and then Clinton rode out the wave.

He does NOT care about the working American

Explain this one to me. Because hes cutting taxes for you...may not be much for you or me, but atleast he isn't adding taxes like certain liberal individuals wanted to do for this year had a liberal went into office.

You know...I didn't want to take this to Iraq, but this issue needs to be solved between us. You and most of the world hates us, because of the Iraq war, correct?

I need you to find me the speech that the president gave that says we were going soley after UBL. From what I heard, this was the war on terror. Dont give me bullshit about lying about WMDs. He wasn't the first one to mention WMDs. There was a gentleman from Mass back in 1997, 1999, and 2001(pre 9/11) by the name of John Kerry, who under Craptrain...er Clinton, told the world that Saddaam had WMDs.

By the way, what type of aircraft/routes do you fly?

I am receiving NO tax breaks from this biggot in the white house! The war in Iraq (and my nephew was killed in May 2004 in Iraq) is NOT about the war on terrorism, but on doing what daddy wanted. Hussan had NOTHING to do with 9/11 (and yes I am pissed about that as my sister was killed on the United flight that hit the tower).

I HATE this man. My family HATES this man as the WORLD hates this man!

Sorry: for clarification UBL is Usama Bin Laden....you know from 9/11 and all

Iraq is harboring terrorists. This is a war on terrorism. Terrorists cause terrorism. We didn't leave UBL behind. I have two buddies of mine over in Afganistan looking for the son of a bitch. My brother is dead from Iraq

But you know when he signed up for the military? Four days after Bush decided upon Iraq.
