Overseas authoritarians prefer a U.S. president willing to bow to their will
The Russians, Chinese and Iranians would vote for Barack Obama. Thats a good reason for Americans to select someone else.
Polls and informal surveys from around the world show that if foreigners could vote in the U.S. election, President Obama would win hands down. The One may have lost some of the luster he had four years ago, when simply showing up was good enough for him to land a Nobel Peace Prize, but hes still popular overseas. Thats because many countries resent a robust White House, and adversary states chafe when their designs are foiled by American might. Mr. Obama is the perfect president for both factions. His diminutive stature on the global scene incites no envy among our friends and offers frequent opportunities to our adversaries.
Russias pugilistic President Vladimir Putin sees in Mr. Obama a pushover who caves to Moscows whims while promising even more flexibility after the election. In Mitt Romney he sees a clear-eyed leader vowing to show more spine. His choice is obvious.
Its also no contest for communist China. When Mr. Romney said he would take on Chinese currency manipulation during one of the presidential debates, Mr. Obama weakly responded that this was a bad idea because China would start a trade war.
