A world leader. . . hated by the world

Police fire water cannon at Bush protesters
By PAUL ALEXANDER, Associated Press Writer
SEOUL, South Korea - Police fired water cannons at thousands of protesters Tuesday as President Bush got a volatile reception in South Korea at the start of his three-nation Asian trip.

Not since Nixon went to South America has a US president been so ill received by a foreign nation.

Of course the good thing is that not since Kennedy traveled Europe has an American stateman been so positively received as Barrack Obama was on his recent trip to Europe.

What a stark contrast. I hope the press points it out. . . maybe draws some type of picture that the low information proles can understand.

At least he's not a celebrity, right?

He likely has a lower poll rating in South Korea than here in the states. By the way, what is half of nothing?
