Look what this Canadian is saying about President Obama

I find it interesting that other countries see Obama one way and we in America see him another.

  • There has never been such vulgarity and disrespect in our country,. A certain part of America has lost its mind. - Kerp.

    You are so right. Just look at the forums these days. We're a nation breeding discontent. Disrespecting others opinions with condescending remarks does not gain you respect, it just makes you look foolish and immature. The nation is full of them, their negativity breeds and some swallow it up because they have nothing useful to share.... How do we grow with that sort of mentality festering around us?

  • The author of that article has apparently been wearing both a blindfold and ear muffs for the past ten years. Getting picked on isn't an Obama first, it started with Bush.

  • I love how he complains about us complaining about our leadership by complaining about his own leadership.

    "In President Obama, Americans have the real deal, the whole package and a leader that citizens of almost every country around the world look to with great envy. Given the opportunity, Canadians would trade our leader, hell, most of our leaders for Obama in a heartbeat."

  • A certain part of America has lost its mind.

    Now this I agree with, however I don't think we agree on exactly who it is that have lost their mind.

  • The most important opinion should be what this country thinks since that is who he is serving. If my kids said I'm not a good mother and I said other people think I'm great; would it really matter? It's typical though for people to look for outsiders to validate them when their own will not. Also easy for people looking in from the outside to like what they don't have to live under. His choices don't effect them to the degree that it effects us so If most don't like him, that is a BIG problem no matter how anyone tries to slice it.

  • The author's main point (and mine) is that NEVER has a President been so attacked with such vulgar and demeaning language and nastiness

    Did you sleep through Bush' presidency?

    And who really cares what one progressive Canadian says?

  • doesn't matter what another country's resident says/thinks about the POTUS/us/our country/our laws/etc...why would it move me either way? he might as well live in a deep cave of the australian outback..when an outsider has an opinion concerning our country that i'm to pay attention to, he'd better become a citizen first.

    and no, i didn't check the link. because it wouldn't matter.
