The Beer: Bad Santa wants to be bottled
The Bicycle: Wants to be ridden.
The VRWC: Bill Richardson says "The International Community" wants Obama re-elected. Is that going to play in Peoria? Let's look at what the "international community" looks like.
Europe: An economic basket case which has followed the tenets of Keynesian economics for decades. Social democracies with unsustainable cradle-to-grave social programs which threaten to bankrupt the entire EU. Russia is looking forward to becoming the pre-eminent military power.
Asia: Economically, Japan is little better than Europe. China revels in the economic demise of the United States as they are poised to become the leading economy in the world. Others in the region will continue to get their "piece of the trade pie", except they will trade more with China, rather than the United States.
The "Third World": Most of the undeveloped/underdeveloped world sees the United States as needing to be brought down a peg or two. Filled with 2-bit dictators and corrupto-crats, they will never move beyond their current conditions, even with the petroleum wealth some control. Why should the US have all that wealth?
So, you tell me...would this "international community" want re-elected a US President who continues to drive the country further in debt, has de-facto disbanded NASA, downsizes the military and does nothing to move the economy forward? A President who abandons our allies and tells our rivals he will have "more flexibility"?
Yeah, I'm sure they would.
