    For the first time, majority of Americans think foreign leaders don’t respect Obama

    For most of his term a slim majority said yes when asked whether they thought foreign leaders respected him — impressive resilience, really, for a guy who was pilloried for blowing hot and cold first on Mubarak’s ouster and then on Morsi’s. Sunni leaders certainly didn’t respect O for that, but then who cares what the oilbags in Saudi Arabia think? Last year, though, the bottom dropped out: Now he’s at 41/53 on the “respect” question. It’s not Republicans who’ve soured on him, either, as they never thought much of O’s international leadership in the first place. It’s independents and even Democrats who’ve lost that Hopenchangey feeling:

    What's to respect? The man is weak and is a liar. End of story.

    How seriously can one take a poll that asks respondents to guess what people they've never met are thinking?

    Suddenly what the world thinks of our president matter, remember when the right didn't care what foreign countries thought of a US president

    I honestly do not know if the "world" respects President Obama or not, but...I don't see how or why.

    I know that if I were a two-bit thug, who had muscled his way into power in a Third World trash heap, I would "fear" President Obama.....not at all.

    Although, I would act "respectful" if I could get some taxpayer $$$ out of him. Don't know that I would want to "rock the boat," unless the Chinese or Russians encouraged me to do so.

    IF I were the leader of Russia, China, or Persia, I would pretty much think that I can do what I want, as Obama won't be standing up to me......

    How many Americans respect Obama. I believe the numbers are declining.

    Just so I understand... This is a poll asking people what they think that foreign leaders think? Amirite?

    Yes.

    And it doesn't reflect American attitudes at all.

    It's about what people think about other countries they can't find on a map with leaders they can't name.

    I'm sure we should take this seriously.

    They should've hired some Liberals from Political Hotwire to tell them what Americans thought, about what Foriegn Leaders think.....

    I think, it all gives me a headache.
