Did anyone see the Oprah Winfrey show yesterday? I rarely watch her, but this topic caught my eye. She had CNN correspondents from all over the world interview people in the areas where they corresponded from about how they feel about Americans. Folks I tell you it was an ugly picture. Many people from several continents shared an anti-american sentiment. Not because of the people, but because of policies affecting those countries.
I have lived in Italy, England and Saudi Arabia and visited Germany. My eyes and ears were really opened while I was in England on how much this anti-america sentiment was growing back as far as 1999.
I think now that the Republicans have swept the Senate races, the impression is going to cause our image even more serious trouble with the world. If you have been abroad or are an avid fan of CSPAN please respond to this post. Thanks.
P.S. Another excellent point that was raised during the show was how most Americans have no idea on what's going on in the rest of the world. I agree with this 100%
