    So do the British. Bush knew who his friends were, and so did we.

    It's not just Germans who are falling out of love with the O. The global love affair with St Barak is on the wane.

    And yes, in the penultimate paragraph....

    I remember about 6 years ago a lot of the Americans I knew wanted Blair re-elected. I couldn't understand why. Better than Brown though.

    89% of Germans (respondents from same Pew poll) want Obama re-elected.
    But his popularity has decreased after they realized, that he's no Messias coming to bring world-peace, but a politician (bullshit-talker).

    There's frustration (too much expactations) but the Mormon they like even less.

    "We"? :D

    Is that why British called Tony a US lap-dog? Ever heard British say "US and UK have "speshul" relationship" -- putting a very particular meaning into it?

    In the past decade anti-American sentiment in Britain has grown.
