    The world is laughing at America, thanks to the crackhead in chief.

    US drops to 5th place in global competitiveness - Business - Stocks & economy - msnbc.com

    The announcement by the World Economic Forum was the latest bad news for the Obama administration, which has been struggling to boost the sinking U.S. economy and lower an unemployment rate of more than 9 percent.

    Singapore moved up to second place, bumping Sweden down to third. Finland moved up to fourth place, from seventh last year. The U.S. was in fourth place last year, after falling from No. 1 in 2008.

    The sooner folks like yourself wake up and realize that presidential policy never has been and never will be a panacea for economic ills the better. What do you expect Obama to do in two years, wave a magic wand and declare all is well?

    Any evidence of declining global attitudes toward America?

    Of course not...

    He knows that.

    In fact, once a Republican is again in office, he'll be saying the same thing.

    Then gee maybe he shouldn't have made that the very central tenet of his campaign platform.

    I give him credit for holding out hope that Congress will come to its senses.

    Perhaps being more proactive and less reactive, counting the attitude of whatever Reid, Pelosi or Obama suggest is automatically bad is really poor form.

    To be completely contentious, for the sake of being contentious is very bad for this country on all levels.

    On the world stage we look like a cage fight.. i.e. a bunch of complete idiots.

    Of course we do, the American people ran to the polls like a bunch of fawning slobbering teenagers to elect this guy simply because he talked pretty aand he looked like their biggest "wet dream" come true, we look like idiots because we are idiots.

    An American news person saying "when I hear his voice my legs tingle" (Matthews)

    Another prominent news person "I had a dream that I showered with him" (Maureen Dowd)

    If that sh!t isn't Idiotic I don't know what is.

    Racism elected this guy and it was a very cruel thing to do to him, Geraldine Ferarro was the only public person to admit this and it ruined her.

    Well everything Reid Pelosi and Obama are suggested was done in the first 2 years of Obama's term and made the situation worse.

    BTW Reid hasn't brought up a budget for the past 2 years and still no budget for the 2012 FY has even been introduced, Obama hasn't put anything from his speech to be evaluated by the CBO.

    The pubs are understandable bored with the dems playing politics and avoiding doing their job.

    Wake me up if Obama presents specifics that can be scored by CBO or Reid actually produces a budget instead of a continuing resolution with more than 2 weeks to go before the FY is set to start.

    What I said was that the Republican Party automatically reacts to anything that they bring up as bad, whether it has merit or not. That is not a good way to proceed and diminishes our standing on the world stage. The whole process has gotten only more and more contentious, and nothing is gettnig done.

    You have not been paying attention if you believe that the dems are the only ones playing politics.. it is great political theater...

    George Bush was the pedophile in chief... no basis in fact, but considering the mods allow perpetual partisan trolling (see Wolfenstein), there you have it.

    Pubbies march in lockstep to effectuate America's first credit downgrade cuz just welching on debts is considered a legit policy option on the right... And Obama is losing us prestige?

    When he gains prestige for us, the clown caucus says horsecrap like "he cares more about the UN than his own people"

    Puh lease.

    Apparently President Downgrade has presided over America being more disliked around the world.:

    "Townhall Conservative" only proves my point... anything Obama does is automatically bad, and there is some poll somewhere on a conservative website that proves it beyond any doubt.

    Would you suspect that Town Hall Conservative would present both sides or pehaps something unbiased???

    No one, absolutely no one caused us to loose more credibility on the world stage than did George Bush whose lies led to many unneccessary deaths... and the destruction of a nation that we had to rebuild.

    When this was presented under the previous regime, it was dismissed as no one cared then how we were viewed on the world stage.... we were going to do what we were going to do, and sort is out later.

    The polls cited are from PEW decidedly not conservative, what did you expect president downgrade's failures to be noted in media matters?

    Obama 1, Osama 0

    Guess that's one guy who "misunderestimated" this president.

    Oh yeah by the way:

    Obama: Can travel to Europe, gets Nobel prize
    Bush: Can travel to Europe, but only as fugitive in some countries.

    "president downgrade" is just digging hysterical. The Righties own that downgrade, and they know it. Hell, they're still bucking for a worse one. I think I saw the pubbie base at the breakfast buffet today. Some of em were eating 1/2 price b/c of the senior discount. Some of em were eating 1/2 price cuz they're kids... And the rest were complaining about how other peoples kids and grandmas ate too many free scrambled eggs.

    Me, I just wanted bloody maries on the all u can eat menu
