Worldwide esteem for US falls to new lows under Obama

January 28, 2011 06:53

The most frequent adjectives used to describe our current president are “incompetent,” “amateurish,” “narcissistic,” “inexperienced,” and “haughty.” This is often followed by a confession that accusers too were impressed with Obama during his campaign and fell for his smooth delivery, rhetoric, and appearance.

By stark contrast, today, virtually every conversation includes a variation of the following: “Do you people have any idea of what you are doing?” The primary reason for this reaction is the stark reality that the current world order, which has been historically successful and dominated by the United States, is beginning to unravel.

Over the past two years and into 2011, the United States has gone on the most astounding spending and money-printing binge in the history of mankind.  From the end of 2008 through the end of 2011, over $4.3 trillion will have been added to the national debt.  That is the same as the annual Gross Domestic Product of the third-largest economy in the world: Japan.

Barack Obama has become the butt of many jokes and satire. Virtually everyone I talk to wants to discuss his failings. Recently, the Swiss Marc Faber, an internationally renowned investor and author whom I have met, said the following on Bloomberg TV’s “Street Smart”: “Obama has done a horrible job. He’s dishonest … Foreigners laugh at him … He’s like a prostitute.”

The most telling comment made to me was by a business associate in London when he said, “When the world needs a firm hand and competent leadership, we are given a fool whose only interest is himself and his ideology. His level of incompetence knows no bounds, yet we all must suffer for it.”
