    Obama's policies compared to a "moldy onion". What happen to all those claims prior to the election that he'd get it all together and America would once again be respected throughout the world?

    Classic cherry-picking. Either that or you didn't bother reading your own posted article any further than what you quoted. Here, I'll help you.

    Two in three Bulgarians, Czechs, Poles and Romanians approve of Obama's foreign policy, according to a survey published earlier this month by the German Marshall Fund, a nonpartisan policy group. That may seem robust, but it pales in comparison to backing for Obama in Western Europe, where nine in 10 respondents support him.

    It's normal for relations to evolve, and at the moment there appear to be few pressing reasons to make eastern Europe a U.S. priority, said Janusz Bugajski, director of the New European Democracies project at the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies.

    "These countries may be victims of their own success," Bugajski said Monday. "They're fairly stable. There's no major social unrest or political instability, no real security threats. The more successful you are, the more you tend to slide down the agenda of U.S. foreign policy."

    "They do understand that this is the new face of America — that it's not to anybody's advantage to be anti-American," he added.

    You will have to take that up with the AP writer.

    It is a blame America first for many that live in other countries. Been going on for a long time. I think it is time to retract and start taking care of Americans first myself.
