I believe it was the Mirror which was so openly scornful of Americans and declared 59,000,000 of us stupid after Bush’s second election. Although the rest of the British press was a little more circumspect with their headlines, it was obvious that their contempt floated right beneath the surface.
Before you condemn Obama for dumping on this so-called ally, take a read on some british websites and get a glimpse of what the average Brit thinks of us. I don’t mean their left-wing sites obviously they are not blood pressure friendly, but try the Sun. It is eye opening, and good luck trying to find a brit with a kind word for any American. I have the feeling this will positively be the only thing that I will ever agree with Obama about.
Anyone was going to be better than Bush, but shoot, Mr. Hope and Change doesn’t satisfy them either. I have a middle finger that normally I would never use to express my opinion, but I will start flexing it especially for our british cousins. (spit)
Most British people like America.
