Rest of the world sick of US Presidents

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

The US has always elected a bully, nurtured him and asked him to go out in the world and do the presidential thing: fight the evil that is the rest of us. At the same time they have expected their president to be nice at home, have mercy on their Thanksgiving turkey and keep talking about the American dream and affordable healthcare.

Abroad, US presidents have wrought havoc, invaded and destroyed places whose names they could never pronounce, hosted murderous dictators from around the world at Camp David and found even more bloodthirsty ones to replace them.

Full rant at the UK Guardian: Link

I think there's a bit of a difference between one Pakistani (of all places...) commenter and 'the rest of the world'...

In 2018, the US gave Pakistan about $345,000,000 in foreign aid. I wonder if Mr. Hanif considers that bullying behavior?

It's the opinion of Mohammed Hanif, a Pakistani writer and journalist who writes a monthly opinion piece in The New York Times.

We'll have four years of this sort of thing under the next administration i.e. fear and loathing transmuted back to the usual loathing and contempt, abroad.

6 Democrats: LBJ, Carter, Clinton (Bill and Hillary who did more), Obama and Biden: "Left wing, PC/civil rights/social justice, and borderline Marxism-communism".

6 Republicans: Nixon, Ford, Bush (father and son), Reagan, Trump...and is Mike Pence next?: "Right wing, racialist fascists and puritan-Christian capitalism".  

I understand why my grandparents on my Mom's side heavily admired FDR, Truman and Eisenhower (they were registered Democrats in the conservative 1950s).

The worst overall rated president is Herbert Hoover, a Republican blamed for the Great Depression of the 1930s by not doing anything about the wall street crash of 1929. 

And we had 45 presidents, 2 of them were the same person (Grover Cleveland), and Hillary Clinton "did the job" while Bill held the presidential title.
