No Respect

A new CBS/NYT Poll (ahem) finds six in ten respondents believe that foreign leaders do not respect President Bush.

To be honest, you can probably count me among them. And that's a good thing.

Why, you ask? Because it means he's looking out for our interests, not theirs. And that's one of the many reasons I voted for him.

Honestly, what real benefit does the U.S. obtain from having it's President respected by foreign leaders? A boost to our national self-esteem? Whoop-de-do. Here's a news flash: most of the world hates us regardless of who is our President. It's derived from envy. The difference nowadays is that the expression of that hatred is more visible.

The U.S. is damned whatever it does. So allow me to quote Markos Moulitsas Zuniga: "Screw them."
