  •  I really doubt that BWD is in a (0+ / 0-)

    position to make any such analysis or initiate a discussion as you would like, as she is neither an American citizen nor lives in the US.  (She said she lives in Israel in a post somewhere, which I happened to catch.)

    Pres. Obama's popularity outside of the US is higher than domestically (see Pew Survey), but I would guess that's because people who don't live in the US don't realize how bad the situation (political and economic) really is and can't possibly judge.

    I support Pres. Obama (I don't really know who with a realistic shot at the Presidency would have been better under the circumstances), but am also disappointed with a number of his own/his admin's positions/actions, but not enough to dump on him or people here for their pro- or anti-Obama stances. I merely enjoy BWD's diaries for what they are - a break in the otherwise pretty bleak landscape that is America these days.

    PS: I'm an expat, but visit regularly and follow US news and Democratic blogs avidly. The Germans love them some Pres. Obama. He's a rock star here.
