Well, Ya Know How Progressives Always Say Europeans Are More Intelligent?

Know how all the so-called "intellectual" tranche of the Progressive movement is so quick to remark how Europe is that much smarter than the average American? Why, their gurus, Bill Maher and Michael Moore, trumpet it all the time.

Maybe they're right.

Radio France International did a little poll.

United States President Barack Obama and the Dalai Lama are the world's two most popular leaders according to the results of a Radio France International and France 24 "world leaders barometer", published Friday.

Obama won 77 per cent backing, in the sixth wave of the survey, which was carried out by Harris Interactive. This is one percentage point higher than in November.

The Tibetan spiritual leader came into second place at 75 per cent, followed by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, at 62 per cent.

(Suck that one, Joan Walsh!)

The survey was carried out on the internet between 31 March and 12 April, and covered 6,135 adults aged between 16 and 64 in Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United States.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel took out fourth position with 54 per cent support. She was followed by embattled French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who tied for fifth place with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, at 37 per cent.

The most unpopular leaders, according to the survey, were Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Libyan strongman Moamer Kadhafi and Chinese President Hu Jintao.

Significant that two of the three poll leaders are American, but the President tops the poll. That would mean that most of the correspondents polled in Britain, France, Germany, Italy and Spain (as well as us) think the President is pretty A-OK. Well, they would, wouldn't they? I mean, look at their leaders and look at their predicament at the moment.

Once again, I told y'all that anyone in almost any European country would rip their right arms off to have a leader like our President. Unfortunately, with the Professional Left leading the sheeple by the short and curlies, their shills look pretty stupid in the way they deride the President.

Well, you don't know what you got 'til it's gone.

  1. Yeah, Emilia...

    That's what idiots like Bill Maher and Michael Moore seem to forget when they keep saying that Europeans are smarter than us....Europeans love Barack Obama!

    I work with Europeans (as well as people from other continents) and I can vouch for this personally.
