How the rest of the world’s leaders see Obama

Mortimer Zuckerman wrote a piece in U.S. News and World Report on how the world’s leaders see President Obama.  Given that the title is “World Sees Obama as Incompetent and Amateur”, it is hardly an encouraging beginning. 

He quote an unnamed, but well known Asian leader as stating: “We in Asia are convinced that Obama is not strong enough to confront his opponents, but we fear that he is not strong enough to support his friends.” 

You can read it all here.

(I’m not sure about Norway.  I rather suspect that having given him the Nobel Peace Prize, they’re still drinking the special blend of Køøl-Aid they favour up there.)
