Pew Poll Indicates People Think Sky is Blue

A Pew poll out today shows the bleedin' obvious, that Obama is more popular and more trusted around the world* than Dubya was.

Kevin Drum makes the point that the poll is a concrete reflection of Obama's "soft power". But, to be fair to Bush, "soft power" was never a weapon at his disposal because nobody around the world liked or respected him anyway.

Really, what choice did his neo-con puppetmasters have but to have him play the bully? It was the only role Bush could credibly play.

* - Israel is apparently the only country on the planet that trusted Bush to do the "right thing" more than Obama, albeit barely.
