    What Does The World Think of Us?

    Advertisements
    What does the rest of the world think of the U.S. and the fact that we had to shit down our government because we couldn't pass a budget? I haven't read too many articles (it's near impossible to find a global perspective on US news sites) but I can't imagine the rest of the world has the most positive image of us right now. Not being able to run your government is a bit of a contradiction to being a global super power, or whatever we're supposed to be.

    I have no idea what the rest of the world thinks of us, but they are definitely watching.

    On a survival forum I frequent there is a Scandinavian guy that said their news only covers the U.S. during elections or when something big happens. He said right now their news is flooded with what is going on over here.

    I think the world thinks we are a laughing stock and that (rightly so) the gov't doesn't know what they are doing. Dems and Repubs alike.

    My daughter who lives in Turkey said she hasn't heard the Turks mention it at all.

    I have an app on my phone (a funny picture app) where people said if they hadn't seen pictures making fun of it they wouldn't even have known.

    France likely isn't loving us too much as there are a bunch of pissed off tourists there who have been locked out of the Normandy American Cemetery - most of whom are on trips that have been planned for months and have involved traveling thousands of miles.
