Most Countries in the rest of the world favor Obama over Romney by a wide margin. In Ireland polls show 96-4 for Obama. The mayor of London called Romney out in a speech about the Olympics. Obama seems to be very respected abroad. Who do you think is/was the President abroad, and why do other countries hate Romney so much?

I don't know, and I don't care.

Possible reasons:

Obama is closer to the political ideology of much of the world than Romney.
Outside of the US there is even MORE ignorance about Mormons than inside.
Obama says things that people like to hear. Romney often says things that need to be said. For example, the outrage over his observation of factual occurrences in relation to the Olympics was nothing short of idiotic.

That is a chilling portent. I bet Greece likes Obama too.

I would imagine almost every country would prefer Obama. Both successful and unsuccessful countries.

Yes. The kind of mentality that stews in the South of the United States is unprecedented around the world. To put it in a way that sinks in, the rest of HUMANITY hates you people.

Outside of the US there is even MORE ignorance about Mormons than inside.

I doubt those people voting even know that Romney is a mormon...it's not like that's an advertised quality of him, the candidate rarely mentions it. Moreover, Romney has snubbed the European countries, disparagingly calling their policies socialist and undesirable. So....yeah. Your argument is pretty sh!tty.

I'm sure it meant alot that Hitler thought this leader was great.

Also, until we become a net exporter of immigrants, i'll defer to the proven performer.

1. As an Irish-American I couldn't possibly care less about what Irish-Irishmen think of the American president.
2. Other countries, especially European ones, favor Obama because they remember back in 08 when he was seen as the alternative to Bush-era policies. With good reason, Europeans hated Bush. Hated him. Almost as much as we did. So they thought this new peace-talking guy was A-OK. Then he got elected and they all tuned out for a while, didn't pay any attention to his regretable first term, and now its election time again so they're all jumping back on the bandwagon
