Around World, Obama’s Presidency A Disappointment


In Europe, where more than 200,000 people thronged a Berlin rally in 2008 to hear Barack Obama speak, there’s disappointment that he hasn’t kept his promise to close the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, and perceptions that he’s shunting blame for the financial crisis across the Atlantic.

In Mogadishu, a former teacher wishes he had sent more economic assistance and fewer armed drones to fix Somalia’s problems. And many in the Middle East wonder what became of Obama’s vow, in a landmark 2009 speech at the University of Cairo, to forge a closer relationship with the Muslim world.  In a world weary of war and economic crises, and concerned about global climate change, the consensus is that Obama has not lived up to the lofty expectations that surrounded his 2008 election and Nobel Peace Prize a year later. Many in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America were also taken aback by his support for gay marriage, a taboo subject among religious conservatives.

    Ok the first thing these people need to understand is “its all about him”.

    Being an underachiever takes alot of work and in his case a lifelong committment.

    Fu*k y”all. Don’t like it, send the money back. After all, you helped bolster him. He was sold here like a Zamfir album. “Millions sold in Europe”. I kind of hope his policies choke you all to hell and back. After November, we’re sending him to you. Just our little way of saying, Thanks!
