Is it just me or do we seem to care waaaaay t much about what the restore the world thinks if us...? I always thought be yourself...do what you think is right and let the chips fall the way they may. Why change to please detractors who wont be won over anyway ?

President Obama is very popular overseas..(except Israel) so what does it get us? Moire troops for Afghanistan? More investment in Iraq..new peace overtures from Iran,...an end to North Korea's missile program..an invitation from the Castro kids to visit Cuba? No No No No No

Btw..stop golfing...at least until after you make a decision on Afgan war? Just a suggestion that could save your polls from dropping into the low 40's...its already at 48 and heading south
