George Bush gets more support from Romanians then from his countrymen

This piece of news from HotNews really made me laugh out loud:

"The German Marshall Fund of the United States survey revealed that the Romanians are the most atypical Europeans due to their high support of the US foreign policy and of the presidency of George W. Bush (42%) that exceeds the Americans’ (40&). Therefore, the Romanians support the USA world leadership to a high degree (48%) along the Dutch (48%) and the British (51%), who also consider that the NATO role is essential for their country’s security."

So are the US citizens waking up, while the rest of the world is put to sleep? It is easy to support things that have no connection to you really…We wanted NATO, then we wanted EU, whose enlargement is most supported by…yes, Romania. We want and support everything there is, but rarely stop to think of the consequences. I wonder who the respondents were. What income and what background they had.

It seems we strive to get accepted in all possible organization, just to gain some attention or respect even. In the end, what exactly do we stand for? No matter how great certain individuals might be, as a country (elected representatives or majority) we pick the worst causes to support.

    Do you think Romania wants to support America to make itself seem stronger.

    I guess it's like befriending the playground bully, the only problem is not knowing when they'll start bullying you.

    Safiya, Romania befriends everybody with no second thoughts. We are friends with all bullies and with al the rest...The result: no real friends.

    I hope the difference between the US government and Americans themselves is clear. Millions of us are embarrassed and horrified by the Bush presidency, and work each week to challenge our government to become a friend rather than a bully. Our government is held captive by industrialists who seek the right to make money anywhere, anytime, from anyone, regardless of the consequences. As an American blogger recently wrote: "It is a sad time to be an American."
