    People in different countries are admiring Americans again. It probably has something to do with Obama.............In the recent past, citizens of other countries couldn't understand how we elected Bush to a second term and began to question American spirit......because in my travels I've always noticed a world facination with America.

    Recently I've been in Europe...Rio and the people there seem to be happier with America and very welcoming.......Just something I noticed.....

    Any guys out there who have experienced the same?

    Yes, there's a lot less criticisms nowadays.

    Also, I notice that the vocal American media is generally 'quieter' too ......

    I concur...the only people I've noticed fascinated by America are horny college-age kids that want some easy American ass!

    As for Bush...WE APOLOIZE!!!!! But, we're not the only ones that voted ultra-conservative idiots, that played on terrorism, as the leader of their country. *Points to most of the Western World, including Australia*

    A lot of Belgians were hopeful during the Presidential Elections that Obama would save us all from this recession. Like he has a magic wand or something.

    I look up to him as well, but I think the White House dog takes too much media attention.

    I've found that all over the world, in every country I've been to (Mexico, Canada, Cuba, Belize, Guatemala, Spain, Netherlands, France and 48/50 United States) you have:

    People that love Americans but don't like the American govt.

    People think that America is awesome no matter what, people, govt, etc.

    They love their country and govt.

    They dont like their govt and love their country.

    we've gained plenty of ground within the Venezuelan people. i say people b/c chavez's government has and will always hate the american government. we've captivated many more latin american countries including Argentina, mexico and chile. something key to note Argentina's government DOESNT accurately represent it's people since thousands to potentially millions disagree with chavez and his constant attacks on that countries' constitution.

    I think it a wee bit premature to say the world is admiring Americans agin. But there is a difference to Americans, and America.

    Generally speaking, I've found people in other cultures very fascinated by America. Wheather they look positively or negatively, they still are intrigued.

    When I was in Iran, I was constantly surrounded by people who asked me millions of questions about life in the USA. They were enthusiatic about sharing experiences..like buying a computer....what the.schools are like..........shopping.....living etc.

    After Bush was elected twice, people started to dislike the American people, not just the government. But that has changed with Obama.

    Also, not everyone from every culture is inquisitive about other cultures. There are people in my neighborhood who consider international travel a waste of time and money. They believe in "America first" and probably haven't travelled beyond a 50 square mile of their homes.
