You think that's bad, we care even less what some right-wing hack at the Telegraph thinks.
 
2012-10-25 07:09:20 PM
I don;t know. Why are we supposed to care about what Chavez says, but not Sarkosy?

Republicans on Monday: "Obama has undermined our standing in the world!!1!"
Republicans on Tuesday: "Oh, who cares what all them furriners think."


\Yes, I know it's a British paper

It's pretty true though.

I wonder if it would be legal to set up a shell company in Europe so that you can get Europeans to part with their hard socalized Euros, then set up a company in the US to transfer the money to. Then, we use the American company to make unlimited donations to my SuperPAC, For The Lulz America, and then spend it all on "overhead"

I mean, what're they gonna do? Sue me? Ha.
 
2012-10-26 09:05:27 AM
I care. Well, a little bit.
 
2012-10-26 09:10:07 AM
Seriously. It's not like they're Israel.
 
2012-10-26 09:40:31 AM
we care what they think - we find out who they want, then vote the other guy to spite them.

They were right about Bush, maybe we should listen to them.
 
2012-10-26 10:01:05 AM
Why does subby think any of us should care what the Torygraph thinks?
 
2012-10-26 10:01:12 AM

gopher321: Living vicariously through another country's politics = pathetic


because it isn't like our foreign policy has an impact on the rest of the world.
 
2012-10-26 10:01:39 AM
Cuz remember how awesome it was when everyone hated us

Freedom fries!
 
2012-10-26 10:01:39 AM
They were polled. So evidently someone cares.
 
2012-10-26 10:05:08 AM
Because they assume some people care about international relations? Yeah, the jokes on them ... or us. Pardon me while I quietly weep.
 
2012-10-26 10:10:42 AM
Because some are hoping that the US can catch up with the rest of the civilized world?
 
2012-10-26 10:10:50 AM
This is a shame.

If Obama held a razor-thin edge over Romney in European support the women there might use it to shave their parts.

"Who cares what them damn foreigners think? Wait, what about Israel? Well, of course we care what THEY think. They are like our brothers! Yeah, that's it. It's not like we want to hasten the End Times, ya know?"

That is the smartest idea I have read on Fark in a long time. Well done.

it is a joke you see

As a guy living in Sweden I can tell you that hairy lady parts is pretty much a nonexistent problem.

I care. Everyone should care. Electing a leader that the world hates is harmful. See: Dubya.
 
2012-10-26 10:16:42 AM
Maybe, because of American Exceptionalism, they have better education and healthcare.

2012-10-26 10:18:39 AM
Because Mitt "London sucks" Romney would be an utter embarrassment as a head of state?
 
2012-10-26 10:19:04 AM
We do care what Europeans think. They are our friends.

Teabaggers would care a whole lot more if Europeans supported their team, but given the fact that their team tends to make the world more unstable, they won't find many international supporters (except Isreal, who wouldn't mind a war with Iran.) 

And plus, their team is pretty retarded when it comes to international relations. (see: Palin, Bush, Romney)
 
2012-10-26 10:19:08 AM

Cythraul: I care. Well, a little bit.


I care a little too. Also about stuff like the Greek bailout, Spanish unemployment, Mid-east oil exports, etc. I see no reason why they shouldn't care at least a little about our president. And who among us just flat out doesn't respect other people's opinions as a matter of course?

Since we're on the topic of European opinion, what's the over-under on a potential Romney presidency as to how long it will take the rest of the world to hate us again?
 
2012-10-26 10:19:14 AM
Because some of us DO care. Republicans want to be a sovereign, unilateral actor on the world stage without input or opinion from other countries. That would be fine if we didn't have trade, finance, travel, aid-programs, multi-national corporations, immigration, and that pesky, impossible "peace" everyone keeps talking about. What other countries do affects us. So what other countries THINK should matter to us too.

Republicans are happy to play in their own sandbox, taking sand and toys from others' sandboxes. The minute someone else says they don't like one of our sandcastles, they start yelling about "foreign influence, UN takeover WHARGARRRRBL". Playing nice with others--even the illusion of playing nice with others--is important.
 
2012-10-26 10:22:08 AM
We only care what foreigners who don't like Mr. Presdident Omaba think
 
2012-10-26 10:23:27 AM
I doubt they do think Americans care what Europe or the rest of world thinks about our elections. Maybe they hope we would be aware enough to care, but I doubt they really think we are.

There doesn't seem to be a lot of overestimating of Americans' geopolitical awareness in Europe, pretty sure they already think we're completely arrogant pricks who think we own the world and don't care what even our closest international allies think about the direction of our country.

Now, whether we should care what Europe or the world thinks about our politics is a different question. But I doubt there's any illusions in Europe about how America thinks the rest of the world view us.

Doesn't the Torygraph have a Page 3 featuring Margaret Thatcher, just in time for Halloween.
 
2012-10-26 10:23:49 AM
I started perusing some other sites because I am finding the idiocy around this election a little hard to take, and I found out something--a lot of people in the UK are still very pissed off about that whole Tony Blair thing. It's like WE are now the axis of evil.

So I blasted them. i can make fun of my retarded, warmongering country, but when the Brits start doing it--that's another story.
 
2012-10-26 10:23:57 AM
I care very little (if at all) what Euros think, but they're entitled to their opinions I suppose. Then again, since I don't live in Ohio or Florida I don't vote in national elections, so who cares what I think??
 
2012-10-26 10:27:31 AM
Is there a country to which disaffected Republicans can threaten to go to should they lose?

http://www.scribd.com/doc/105943470/UPI-CVoter-Global-Poll-9-11
Israel - Nah, too socialist. Plus they might actually have to serve in the military.
Pakistan - Nah, too Muslin. Presumably the Romney fans here think Romney will stop the drone attacks.
Georgia - Possibly. How much lingering socialism is there? Plus, they don't really like the Russkies, so there is that.
Macedonia - OK, where does the Romney love here come from? Dislike of Albanians (who tend to be bi-partisan in their naming of streets?)
China - Could be a good choice. After all, it's who they think is going to take over if 0bama takes over and suspends all that is holy and capitalistic.
Lebanon - Too many Muslins. Presumably they think Romney would stop the war.
Iraq - Ditto. Presumably they think Romney would stop the war or something.
India - See China. However, there *are* a lot of Muslins here.
Colombia - Might be a good choice, the FARC is largely defeated and the kidnappings, etc., of 10 years ago are almost gone.
Hong Kong - This might also be a good choice too. Low taxes, every man for himself, etc., etc.
Cameroon - OK, not sure where the (comparative) love for Romney came from.

Although their Arts section is surprisingly good. I started subscribing to their Arts section over a year ago, and it beats the heck out of the London Times and most American publications.

SacriliciousBeerSwiller: I care. Everyone should care. Electing a leader that the world hates is harmful. See: Dubya.


You're confusing hate and fear, I think, at least for Bush. The lingering thought that W might wake up from a nightmare in the middle of the night and ask for the football because he had a bad dream that Al-Qaeda was headquartered in Paris, and it was time to do something about it.

Romney, on the other hand, hate is the right word. It's always so endearing when a guy who currently holds no public office or rank from a foreign power comes over and pisses all over you
 
2012-10-26 10:30:50 AM
You would think as a country we'd take pride that so many people around the world are interested and feel effected by the american election.

You'd think

Sczi: Since we're on the topic of European opinion, what's the over-under on a potential Romney presidency as to how long it will take the rest of the world to hate us again?


So long as his policies don't affect the rest of the world negatively, like Bush's did, I don't think we really care. I think Europe's biggest fear would be another Bush.

Sarkozys out of office.

I read that in Peter Griffin's voice.

From today's Daily Torygraph: a piece about what is and isn't a good idea about who should go into space.

A meeting of every person that has been lifted into orbit, thanks to rockets designed and supplied by a British space program (sorry: "programme")...

Shut up. Daily Torygraph. You cock.
