Poll: China Image Scores Better Than U.S.

(VIA DRUDGE)
Yes, you read that right.

"WASHINGTON -- the United States‘ image is so tattered overseas two years after the Iraq invasion that China, which is ruled by a communist dictatorship, is viewed more favorably than the U.S. in many countries, an international poll found."

Tattered? Can they be serious? A favorable Communist Dictatorship?

"Eleven of the 16 countries surveyed by the Pew Research Center -- Britain, France, Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, Russia, Turkey, Pakistan, Lebanon, Jordan and Indonesia -- had a more favorable view of China than the U.S."

Lets see; figures, figures, figures, figures, figures, figures, figures, figures, figures, and figures.

"We should keep plugging away on democracy," he said. "But we need to do a better job of communicating what we're trying to do."

Communicate with a Nuke for all I care.

Madeleine Albright, the secretary of state when Bill Clinton was president, said big majorities of the public in these countries are discontented with Bush "and say Bush's re-election has made them view the United States less favorably."

Oh, this explains enough. Thank God they have no (little?) say in our politics.
