FROM CNN’s Jack Cafferty:

Senator John McCain says when it comes to foreign policy he’s light years ahead of Barack Obama. Over and over again, McCain has insisted Obama lacks the necessary experience to conduct business with foreign countries on behalf of the United States.

So how do you explain this?

Citizens of dozens of foreign countries prefer Barack Obama over John McCain as our next president by a margin of almost 4 to 1, according to a massive poll conducted by the Gallup Organization. About 30 percent of those surveyed prefer Obama, while just 8 percent favor McCain.

This was no daily tracking poll either. Gallup polled people in 70 countries in Africa, Europe, Asia and North and South America, representing nearly half the world’s population, between May and September of this year.

Citizens of the Philippines and Georgia were the only ones who preferred McCain to Obama. Not exactly the super-powers we’re looking to mend fences with.

Here’s my question to you: Why do citizens in 70 foreign countries prefer Barack Obama to John McCain by a margin of nearly 4-1?

Interested to know which ones made it on air?

Justin from North Carolina writes:

Barack Obama is the candidate of reason. Only a fool would think of supporting the ticket with the oldest presidential nominee and a woefully inept vice presidential candidate are in the best interest of America or the world especially when the current disaster of a president proves to be more coherent than the both of them.

Kevin writes:

They prefer him because he’s a patsy and they know he’s going to pander to them. Kennedy was on medication during meetings with Khrushchev and Khrushchev called him a pygmy. No fear whatsoever. Good thing Kennedy did stand up to him during the Cuban missile crisis. Obama needs some testosterone shots. Putin, Chavez, the Castro’s, the Girl Scouts of China…anybody could chew him up, push him around, and spit him out.

F.S. from Rollinsford, N.H. writes:

Jack, just to let you know that from my wife’s and my visit to Europe for 3 weeks just recently, we couldn’t find anyone in 4 countries that wanted McCain for President. They all think he is warmonger and that Palin is a joke. Do they know something we don’t?

Jackie writes:

To be fair, I think McCain’s negativity rests with the “R” after his name. He is a decent man who, because of his age and knowing this is his last chance, sold his soul to the Republican National Committee.

Mike writes:

It’s simple. It may sound racist, but it’s really not. Foreign countries are tired of old white men bossing them around and looking down on them. They finally see someone who will respect & approach them as equals.

Zach writes:

Let’s see, Jack…where to begin…They don’t want to get bombed? They want to work with a well-spoken, even-keel U.S. President for a change? They’re smarter than almost half of the people in our own country?

In other news...62% of those polled didn't give a **** or didn't know who McCain or Obama were.

I would suggest that the reason for this is very simple....

Most of the other countries in the world are SOCIALIST societies. In general socialist countries prefer to deal with other socialist countries. They don't care for dealing with countries that have any sort of Conservative bent. Obama is a devout Socialist. McCain is just a devout Idiot.

Why don't we send them all a friggin absentee ballot while we're at it ?!?!?!

There's a VERY GOOD reason why NONE of those citizens in any of those 70 countries are allowed to vote in our election.

So why should we give a **** what they think about it ?

You think, maybe they're not thinking in America's best interest ?

Or maybe they don't have enough knowledge of the candidates from halfway around the world ?

This has got to be the most meaningless, overly-spinned, just plain retarded stat I've heard yet.

Obviously they want to see a weaken America. If McCain wins you know he isn't going to take no guff. He sings about bombing Iran, imagine what he'd do to your country. USA!

Signed,

Barack (I've already committed to invading a sovreign nation against their will if it's in our best national interest) Obama

(I agree with him, BTW.) :)

The international community is not a church picnic. They don't want each other to do well. They'd all like to see the US as a pliable, weak, and bleeding foreign aid all over the place. Their pick for president is a pretty good indicator of what's up. They know. Just like it's no accident that all the dictators and terrorist groups have been endorsing the hell out of Democrats in the past couple elections.

the ONLY time we are truly popular with other countries is when they need our assistance. they always like to paint us as bullies and such until the war comes to their doorstep. then the world's police is called up and we go save their asses.

and mick, congrats on my rage. you can ONLY use it though...
