    Default Congratulations USA

    For the new president...

    I watched the speech this morning... I realized that the election meant more to me than I thought it would. For the past eight years or so I had gotten used to thinking that US means about the same as "war" and "torture" but now that Obama was speaking, I remembered that it wasn't always so. In the nineties there was certain respect and even admiration.. or at least it felt that way here. But I was young, I could remember wrong. Anyway, I just wanted to tell you Americans out there that for the first time in almost a decade I feel good about where the world might be headed now that Bush steps down. Congratulations!

    I'd like to second that. Congratulations!

    Yeah, because nothing is so appreciative as saying, "ordinarily you're an asshole, but I think you've turned over a new leaf!" Nolla's post reveals a knee-jerk contempt for, coupled with ignorance about, the United States.

    Wow, that's almost word for word of a few conversations I have had with a couple of expats. I don't expect many of them to be willing to travel to the US again yet as a result of this, so... I'm not sure how if congrats are really due yet though.
