2. The sad thing is, many in the States simply do not understand this, and/or don't care.

Typical GOP rhetoric involves bashing our allies (except for the British and the Israelis) while at the same time claiming that the Obama administration has caused our reputation to decline. It reminds me of the favored talking point during the '80s when George Will was claiming that Reagan was respected overseas. When I came back to the States after living in Europe, I found myself getting into an argument over the image vs. the reality.
