Skip to comments.US election: Europeans endorse Obama for a second term
Posted on 11/05/2012 6:24:53 PM PST by Olog-hai
If Europeans could vote tomorrow (6 November) in the US election, they would back President Barack Obama over challenger Mitt Romney, numerous polls have shown. In a survey released last week by British pollster YouGov, 90% of Europeans have said that they would vote for Obama if they could cast ballots. The reason behind it is that they dont know much about Romney, the 65-year-old former equity investor, and find his ideas leaning too far on the right.
Criticized at home for being too European, Obama collects support on this side of the Atlantic for his policies of expanding healthcare insurance, concern for the less well-off, social liberalism on gender and sexual orientation, and climate change.
In Germany, Thomas Oppermann, the Social Democratic leader in the Bundestag, said that Europeans prefer Obama because he stands for social balance and social justice. He ended the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is for international cooperation, and he ended the era of unilateralism pursued by George Bushthat is what makes him more sympathetic for Europeans, Oppermann said.

They can have him, he’ll be needing a job. Don’t ask for college references.
ANOTHER REASON TO VOTE FOR ROMNEY AND RYAN
Gee, you mean Muslim-pandering pseudo-commies would vote for an actual Muslim Commie?
Color me surprised!
They are praying for an American bail out.
What do we expect,socialists/communists always support each other.
Not this European:
News flash....for you that have been asleep for decades....Europe, broke, Socialist, “post-Christian”, decaying, being taken over RAPIDLY by Islamists, uber-P.C.....love Obama’s half-black ass.
F**k them, f**k Obama, and let’s watch once great cultures continue to sink into the sewer of history.
Just a matter of time before they ask for our help.....again.
Grab handle....pull down......flush vigorously.
We’re on our own, boys and girls.
So let him for the EU Presidency and they would be very happy. Other than that - I really do not care what a bunch of Europeans who have run their economies into the ditch have to say.
“In a survey released last week by British pollster YouGov, 90% of Europeans have said that they would vote for Obama if they could cast ballots.”
This from a continent that elected Hitler and Mussolini.
Who gives a rats behind.
We’ll fight some more wars as your proxy.
We sent you container shiploads of money to keep your socialist azzez afloat, only to watch you piss it away.
We’ll still keep kicking your butts at everything.
More of your people want to move than ours want to move there.
You wil always be known as lazy’s, while we will continue to known for self determination and ambitious.
None of you poosies has bailed us out of anything.
If we can’t continue to bail you out and then find one day we can’t even bail ourselves out any longer you are FK’d.
You are thankless and ungratefull P’sOS.
Oh, and you stink....
Eurabia wants Obama so bad they can taste it. And they’ll happily kill - literally - right wing dissidents.
They just want us to be a miserable as they are.
You just spoke for me. Thankyou.
They probably won’t get legal I.d. either. :-)
Good thing the Stinky-peans don’t get a vote ;P)!
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance and the gospel of envy. Its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.
These same Europeans think Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece and Spain are doing a swell job with their countries’ finances.
Not only that (Germany’s debt), the Germans are eventually going to have a revolt of their own if they keep trying to prop up the rest of the EU.
That’s a power play. Any loans that Germany gives out come at the cost of the borrower’s national sovereignty; those are part of the terms of such loans. Why else did the countries that took the loans resist them at first, and then get their governments replaced (suddenly) with politicians that were receptive to the loans?
But who would want to own, say, Greece, and inherit it's debts / economy? German taxpayers? It seems unlikely...
Taxpayers, no; elites, yes.
